But, when I just have sticky chicks, I wait until several clean chicks have  hatched - since they are warm and wet and they keep the humidity up better than I can, so I try to grab just the gooey chicks and wash them carefully without getting any water in the nostrils.  I don't put wet chicks into the brooder, I usually drop them back in the hatcher. 

Others, please chime in!!!

I'm not an expert at all so I hope someone can help you more. But I think I would quickly pull it out and get it under heat. Anyone know????

Hello everybody! Tried to catch up a little but only had minutes, not days. I want to post some pics soon of some recent chicks but will have to do it later when my Hughes net and camera are getting along!

 

My "yard pet" Serama just got a reserve champ at a large show!

 

Hotter than H.... here. I lost three hens from heat stroke. That's the first time any have actually died from it. Usually I can get them cooled off in time. I have another that was in a coma all day yesterday. I found her in the last stages of heatstroke and started treating her. Today she opens her eyes. I'll give her a bit longer and see if she starts responding or if her brain is damaged....:(

She's just sleeping so at least i don't think she's suffering now. I hate it when I have an injured or sick chicken and my efforts prolong their suffering and then they die anyway. Sometimes it's just too hard to tell if they're going to pull through or not.

 

I hope everyone is staying out of the heat the best they can, and if anybody's getting any rain, please send a little my way. :bow

Hope it cools down at your place! Sorry you lost some chickens to the heat. :( Sounds awful. I know, sometimes it's so hot it would be nice to just go up and squeeze the rain out of the clouds!

Stay cool as best as you can!

I've seen people do it but that is the pricey way to go.

No wonder whites thought starter was expensive.

The bigger they get the more they'll eat. Get a 40/50 # bag. The adults can eat it too if it's unmedicated.

The primary difference is higher protein and sometimes I feed it when the hens are molting.

I don't think I'd be on BYC if I had to do so on a cell phone. I don't know how you guys do it.

That's a bit of technology I haven't embraced yet.

The GPS was helpful when I was trying to find yards on the Sustainable Living tour. I've also used it to find feed stores when I was in an unfamiliar area.

I don't "do" breakfast. It is still too early for me to eat them.

I always 'do breakfast'. Not always traditional stuff though. I had Hunan Beef this morning. Sometimes a salad. Usually a piece of meat and a couple eggs. Rarely any bread - unless it is soft boiled eggs. I can't eat those runny yolks without bread.

They say the way to train cats to leave chickens alone is to introduce the cat to a broody hen with chicks.

The guy that does it at trivia night comes up with really good ones. Trivial persuit though I do about 75% better... Hehe... I love that game.

There's a national trivia game that's played at bars called buzztime.

http://www.buzztime.com/

I used to play when I worked in KC. At the end of the game, it gives all the scores at the bar and then all the high scores across the country.

I think they have it at places like Buffalo Wild Wings.

We have a few lazy rivers where most people tube. Some are mostly for rafting and some are mostly canoeing.

My family tubed with the inlaws one day. We put some valuables in the cooler floating in another tube. The river split. My son and I went one way. Everyone else went another. When the 2 sides rejoined past the island, we learned they weren't paying attention, hit a log jamb and  everything in the cooler was at the bottom of the river.

You may come too. I will even put another pan in the oven for you!

I always tried to shake things up with my kids too.

I worked nights most of my life and that really cut into family time.

One day I got about 6 pints of brightly colored paints. I went to my basement office, covered the computers, desk, book shelves and file cabinets. Put oversized t-shirts on the kids , gave them a bunch of small paint brushes and had them sling paint all over the room. To this day, it has streaks of yellow, red, blue, green, black, etc. over every wall. They really did a good job.
