Why Is There Clicking When My Chick Breaths

Recently, one of my Dutch hens hatched out some chicks. One chick hatched late and appears to be a runt, the hen tryed to peck him to death, so I put him inside my house. He is located in a cardboard box with hay, medicated chick food, a water dispenser, (Not a bowl) and a heat lamp. I had to seperate the chick at hatching to save him, so I put the other chick of his type (Who had been outside for two days) in with he to teach him how to eat and drink.

Our Chicken (and Quail) Adventure

Recently we decided to take the plunge and get some birds for our backyard. Our neighbor across the alley has them, and they are quiet (mostly) and discreet, and the thought of fresh eggs tempted us too much to say no. We ordered a prefab coop, and six hens from My Pet Chicken.   But before the chicks got here, we ended up being fortunate enough to meet some very kind people and ended up with six coturnix quail and a white silkie hen. We brought the silkie home in a box, which I put in the back seat with my almost four year old son. Needless to say, before we made... read more

First Time Egg Hatcher

We recently purchased 2 female Indigo Blue peacocks and to be sure they did not fly away, we put them in our covered chicken yard.  After having them about a week, one started to lay but in random places around the chicken yard.  I gathered the eggs as she layed them and put them in an incubator.  I called the person we bought them from and they insured us that they were fertile.  I candled the eggs after about 2 weeks and the eggs had a large bubble at the rounded end and there was a large dark blob in the middle of the egg.  I have an auto turner in the incubator to... read more
