post #122071 of 151841
Thank you so much. I just noticed she? Has diarrhea and it is very sad.
I started with 6 eggs. 2 weren't fertile and 1 died, evidentially. I haven't cracked the egg but it never hatched and wasn't moving.
The strong 2 are happy and running around and eating.
Just wish I knew what to do for the week one. She is stronger than last night. Her diarrhea is new though?

I haven't actually seen it on the floor of coop. It has just run down onto her belly and is dried up. Whitish in color ?hard to tell. But not dark or bloody.

I'm surprised metal and plastic nests aren't available in the EU.

You can just use a 5 gallon/20 liter bucket on it's side or a plastic beer/soda case.

I know you're happy to be going home for a while. How long you going to be able to stay?

 

There really is "No place like home" I was born in D.C., but we quickly relocated to MD, where I grew up. As a young adult, I couldn't wait to get out of MD. I eventually took a transfer to northern NJ. We were only there for 18 months before we came back to MD so my DW could be with her recently widowed mother. By that time I'd had all I wanted of NJ; entirely too close to NYC for my liking.. MD suddenly looked pretty good by comparison, and we've been here ever since; I don't expect we'll ever leave again, although I hate the liberal laws and politics.

No matter where you're from, for most people home is home. A select few, never want to go back.

I got the one of two extensions to runs done though, and all the cockerels caught, banded, and photographed for evaluation so that is good.
How are you?

Nice you got some real work done.

Does it necessarily mean anything, sex-wise, if a 2 month old chick carries a significantly more erect tail than its hatch mates, or is that the different genes from multiple mothers?

For what it's worth, I don't put much stock in the appearance of the tail at 2 months. Then as adults, tail angle is a matter of breed specific SOP. By that I mean, if the tail angle is different from the SOP, it is a flaw. Doesn't affect the bird in any way if you're not intending to show or are breeding to a standard.

Kathy will have advice when she gets on.

 

Diarrhea in chicks is fairly common. Get some probiotics in them and if there isn't a more serious issue, that should clear it up. 

Some vitamins like Poly-Vi-Sol without iron may be a good option.

Agreed! The house is only 200 years old, but it needs a TON of work, and so does the barn unfortunately. So we will probably not end up buying it :(

The ones that hatched were from my 2 seramas-proud parents Barry and Patty!

Congrats!

I'm still on my phone though and the mobile app is really buggy so I can't use it much, and the page is big and cumbersome in my internet browser.

But anywho, I borrowed an incubator from a friend so hopefully I will be getting some eggs here soon. 😍🐣
Yes, yes I do! I pretty much grew up on them. I'm pretty sure I've ridden more than I've walked in my life (and I do a lot of walking). 😉🐎 Unfortunately I don't own a horse right now due to financial and health reasons.

Welcome!!  it is a fast moving thread so jump on whenever you feel and dont worry about missing posts! Good luck!!!

I felt so awful about that one. The third is still up in the air. She seems to be doing better but she had a vein cutting off circulation to her eye and neck. She was also sticky and I couldn't get her dry. I gave her a bath this morning and that's helped. The other one I assisted is amazing. I helped right on time and she pulled through great. Very healthy. She is doing better then the one that hatched itself. This was only my 3rd hatch. Hopefully with more experience I can do better next time.

:hugs

Same to you.

I'm working around here, the rest of the family is working all day today. Restaurant business.

We did our barbecue feast yesterday. I told my wife to let me check the radar for when there would be a break in the weather. She said, "I'm barbecuing regardless".

So she stood in the rain with an umbrella at the pit.

Homemade potato salad, made from scratch macaroni and cheese, deviled eggs, vegetable/chicken kabobs, pork steaks and brats.

I should have taken a picture. I'm having leftovers today.  

lol, sounds delicious!!

His ears aren't long enough to be full Nubian though. So mostly will have to do. Either way he's cute and has a job to do.
