Y'all a quiet bunch today

3 Little Red Hens (RSL),1 big BCM rooster , & a raft of their youngin's

Not but 3 kinds of snakes I'm afraid of; big ones, little ones, and live ones

Have Crappie rod, will travel

Call me Ken,Whites, Whitey, or Red Dog; just don't call me late for supper

Yeah, I did; didn't have a definitive answer, though.

Is the cord so long it could be stepped on? I'd think that could be a problem

If it's not, since it's no longer attached to anything on the other, I'd suppose it should dry up & slough off.

somewhat akin to banding a bull calf.

Vet suggests .5 albon orally for 5 days.

Did the vet sell you Albon? Curiously, for my dosing records, how much does he weigh?

images?  see the umbilical section of the notes too

Can We Affect the Hatch Rate by Audio Stimulation?
J2205
Objectives/Goals
If you add the audio stimulation of a hen(s) clucking to incubating eggs you will have an increase in the
hatch rate verses either eggs incubated in silence or eggs incubated with ambient noise.
Methods/Materials
Our materials included the eggs (99), incubators (3), and audio players (2) to play the audio stimulation.
We gathered the eggs from the breeds of chickens we wanted to have chicks from, then we added an equal
number of each breed's eggs to the incubators and rolled the eggs three times each day until day 19. We
recorded the chicken sounds from our chicken barn and started playing it every day for the last ten days of
the experiment, we also added the music stimulation to another incubator for the last ten days. We
recorded the hatching results from each incubator and calculated the hatch rate for each incubator.
Results
Our experiment was a success. We discovered that the music stimulated eggs were the first to hatch and
had the highest hatch rate of 74%. The eggs stimulated with a recording of chickens clucking hatched
second and had a hatch rate of 70%. Our control incubator with no stimulation only resulted in a 27%
hatch rate.
Conclusions/Discussion
After our experiment we conclude that both the audio stimulation types improved the hatch rates of our chicken eggs. We also feel the fact that both stimulated incubators started hatching before thenon-stimulated incubator is also proof that our hypothesis was correct.
Can we get more eggs to hatch by playing chicken sounds next to the incubators during days 12 to 21.

Effect of prenatal chronic noise exposure on the growth and development of body and brain of chick embryo

 

Abstract

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3931211/

Context:

Noise acts as an environmental stressor as has been demonstrated by an increased brain acetyl cholinesterase activity as well as elevated plasma corticosterone and adrenocorticotropic hormone levels. Noise can lead to neurodegenerative changes in the brain and in the ear.

Aim:

This study was undertaken to investigate the effect of chronic noise on growth and development during the sensitive period of embryonic life.

Materials and Methods:

In this study, we analyzed the body weight, brain weight and brain size following prenatal chronic noise exposure. Fertilized eggs of domestic chicks were exposed to chronic excessive acoustic stimulation with frequency of the sound ranging from 30 to 3000 Hz with a peak at 2700 Hz was given at 110 dB sound pressure level from embryonic day (E) 10 until hatching.

Results:

An appreciable decrease in body weight, brain weight and brain size was evident in the experimental group exposed to noise. A generalized decrease in the neuronal nuclear size and increase in the density of neurons was also observed.

Conclusion:

These observations could be an indicator of growth and developmental retardation following exposure to noise.

I also am curious as to the effects of music on incubating eggs... Sometimes the volume just has to go up. Electric guitars tend to make lots of noise too... I can't help it:)

Ok so I went digging to find out what the effects of music on an incubating egg were. I found this webpage a most interesting read.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3931211/

 

I'm not sure if it's in the article, but here it is:D

The vet didn't sell it to me. I'm gonna hunt it down or order it online. I plan on weighing Gordon and Blue and calling the vet to confirm the dose. He was going off of memory from the weight of the bird in Feb. I will let you know what he says.

Quick question....I'm setting duck eggs today....temp and around what humidity?
Incubator is running...99.5 -100F

Phil, glad you received the letter after my original brain fart! Good luck with them, but I would start them early
As for ducks, temps sound good, I start dry, check ac and adjust as needed. I also do a cool down about ten minutes per day after day seven (prop the bator lid open a bit) and then I start upping the humidity around day 23-24. I don't mist them like some, and have reasonably successful hatches, 75-80%.

Sally, no fun today, just lots of critter related chores! Got the coops cleaned last weekend, got to do goats and ponies feet today, finish dry wall in laundry room and then get a barn stall set up for one of the ponies that are due to foal very soon. Vet said late March, I am thinking mid-April but need to be ready just in case. She was late with her first, and early with her last one so........

:pop foaling ponies  how wonderful!!!!!!!
