A very good book. It's full of very useful information, pictures, and tips. I'd recommend it.
I think this waterer is great. It only holds 2 gallons of water so if you're a younger, older or out of shape it's not too much work to carry from the hose to the coop. It's it's very easy to fill...
I bought a one of these this summer. It is fantastic. It will pluck 2 birds in 10-15 seconds. My son in law and I cleaned 20 birds in less than 90 minutes. At the end of 90 minutes they were...

A Brinsea Mini was my first incubator and it will be my last too. It is a high quality small incubator for the backyard hobbyist; no, you can't hatch a ton of chicks out of it, but it's ideal for...

Been out and done feeding chores. Put down a BCM pullet while I was out and about. Mama and Brit are at the airport putting 3 pups on a plane headed for their new homes. They did the same drill yesterday but with 5 pups. We are getting close to our new girl shipping from Germany. Oh, and the Loki/Faith breeding is a confirmed pregnancy, pups due April 6th. This is the 100% A.I. breeding I posted about.
what was wrong with the pullet? CONGRATS on the PREGO!!! good for you fire!!
CC your actually online!! morning how cold are you up there?Quote:
Morning Peter!!! ohhhh VDay! pool filter!!! Termites!!! eeeee gadsss
NO they will be fine all together, no need for two brooders, I always keep my serama in with even my godzilla egg chicks!! they will be fine! Use papertowels over the shavings the first few days in the brooder mostly BECAUSE of the TINY SERAMA chicks!
PEEP!!! morning sweets!post #53815 of 1576312/13/16 at 7:32ampost #53816 of 1576312/13/16 at 7:33am
Hands down, sweetest photo I've ever seen. I need to go get some insulin for the diabetes you just gave me...
@chicken hawk 33 This is how I do it. To make it easier, when setting up, I put down pine shavings in the brooder FIRST, and then put the paper towels on top of that. I switch out or layer more paper towels on top as they make a mess. After they're all running around really well, I just remove the paper towels and viola - they're on the pine shavings! Less stressful on them than trying to add shavings while they're in there, or taking them out to add shavings. I have them on paper towels now - leaving it a wee bit longer than I normally would because I have a little boy with leg hobbles for splay leg (doing very well, BTW).
I have them in a small kiddie pool right now - need to move them to a bigger brooder today. My project today is to clear floor space in the mudroom to more easily accommodate the bigger brooder and still let me walk around the edges.

Hot date was awesome! This particular pullet has always been a runt and yesterday I noticed her just not acting right. This morning she was down and sluggish. Wife is gone so I doctored in my normal fashion given the opportunity.post #53818 of 1576312/13/16 at 7:36amThread StarterQuote:Originally Posted by Auroradream26

Good for you fire! I would have done the same with the pullet. These were the new ones you got shipped in? How do you incubate your shipped eggs?post #53820 of 1576312/13/16 at 7:40amThread Starter
