I need your help. I went out to do chores this morning. I decided to throw the last of the scratch grain outside to try to get the chickens OUTSIDE instead of in all day. I noticed a pulley couldn't get over to the food and she was hunched down. I just thought she was cold so I picked her up to carry her over. Then I noticed her foot was smashed. I must have stepped on her during feeding time at some point. Thee skin in the foot is pealing the pad is huge and kind of...
My turkeys are very gentle. You won't have any trouble with your kids. They will be more inclined to run away from them than to peck and scratch if teased. You will need to be careful of them being at eye level of your kids. They are very curious and might peck at a moving eyeball. They don't do it out of anger or anything. They just want to figure out what it is. Turkey poults are more fragile for the first few weeks. Your kids will need to be extra gentle when handling...
I have a jenny hatching out some eggs due on the 9th. I can't wait for pics to share too!!!!!
Thank you sooo much! I feel much better after reading that
That's a really good question. I know chicken can incubate a turkey or duck egg. It would be worth a shot.
I have a jenny that is sitting on some eggs. She has been for about 10 days. Yesterday and today I decided to time how long she was off the nest to get food and a drink. She was off 25 minutes yesterday and 30 minutes today. My worry is that the high today was 2*. She is nesting in a dog house with bales of hay on all sides and on top to insulate her. I am worried that the eggs are getting too cold. I don't want them to die and contimplated putting them in the incubator...
He is very handsome!
I will have Self Blues. I sell my eggs in set of 6 for $30.
Arielle will have Sweetgrass. You should private message her to get on her list. I have Self Blues/Lavenders but my jenny is brooding a clutch right now. I will have more later in the spring.
Sounds good. There are only 3 eggs so she shouldn't have trouble keeping them warm. I just worry about if she tries to take them out of the dog house to walk the yard. It will be almost Valentines day and the coldest month of the year. I will keep an eye out on hatch day. Also should I move them at night to the new coop once hatched?
