Don't have to stick to just walmart. My local grocery store with a bakery has buckets just like this. Got the insider scoop from one of the night managers to go in during the day, ask for the bakery manager, and ask if he has any buckets I can have for free/cheap.

Someone just tried to tell me that red velvet cake is just vanilla cake with red food coloring
There are NO words for how wrong that is.post #57827 of 1576312/21/16 at 2:56pmQuote:
Or catch its foot on the vessel and pull out the yolk sac plus guts.

***That is a real risk.***
What I would do is massage together the muscle sphincter around the vessels with your finger tips. They should tighten naturally around the vessels. Then pinch the vessels that are attached to the bird/shell between your thumb and index finger close to the chick. Hold it for a few minutes so that the blood will stop flowing and clot. You can double the "stump" over to encourage the blood flow to stop. Once that has occurred cut the vessels not too near the chick (half inch). When you release pressure on the vessels if they still bleed hold them longer. They will clot. In the meantime keep the chick warm in a heated towel (microwave a towel to heat it up). When bleeding has stopped make sure the vessel stump is short enough that it won't catch on a foot or on wire.
Hope that helps.

It's been 15 days since I last was on... Hello Everyone! It's my Moms Birthday today, and she's having a lot of fun with the chickens today. I discovered Ayam Cemani Chickens, and she somehow ordered some eggs on eBay for me to hatch for her. I guess in a couple days I'll have eggs in the Incubator again! I just sold the last of my chicks yesterday, and I took one chick from my New Years hatch back from the person I sold it to. It's a mixed breed too. They think it's a Roo, I'm not sure. Here are the pics of it-
Hey chicky!!!! yep roo!! AWESOME! cant wait to see your hatch !!!
areyou sure its not the power pack??? I just said earlier my plug didnt sent enough power.Quote:Originally Posted by HeatherMarieR
I guess I'm going to start using a wet bulb thermometer in my incubators. There are a bunch of people in a Facebook group that claim that Seramas are super easy to hatch as long as you don't let your humidity drop below 60% (wet bulb). They claim that their method works anywhere in the world. I'm not sure that I buy it since my eggtopsies appear to show that my humidity was too high with a max reading of 38% on my Brinsea. At this point, I'm not sure that I have much to lose though since my Serama hatches have been horrible anyways. I wonder if they'll replace my eggs if I prove their method wrong (it's nice to dream). Do any of y'all have any experience using higher wet bulb readings in a relatively humid climate? I live in Alabama, and I've always had much better hatches at lower humidity levels, but Serama eggs don't seem to want to hatch well no matter what I do. @Sally Sunshine do you have any thoughts on this?
I dont have one, I use cheapos I run 55 entire and then up it. serama are one of our breeds and I hatched and shipped many of them already. but I do suggest a wet bulb if you want to spend the cash!!! I just never got one because I never had issuespost #57830 of 1576312/21/16 at 3:18pmThread StarterQuote:Originally Posted by Ur-ur-ur-urrr
Been staying a little busy the past few days, but managed to get a couple of things accomplished. I got a full-length tarp over the laying house run, and a couple of icing bucket waterers built and installed. Kind of happy about that...
It's starting to look like a small-scale chicken farm in the back yard...
New waterer in the laying house run...
and new waterer in the growout pen...
I hope I run into how you did that waterer and assume its heated too?
Joey it is so amazingly clean looking back there! I love the backdrop for them very much. Very nicely done.
I do have a question about the openings access in your grow out pens, with the roof angled back, and rain heading that direction, do you have access on the sides?
