@NathanZee I've been meaning to congratulate you on your beautiful article on the carousel of the home page of your African Geese Family.  It's an indulgent Picture show of your beautiful birds and those lovely photos almost make me want to have waterfowl.  :D

 

Congratulations you talented young man! :thumbsup

I should have some interesting babies from Mr T next year also.

 

I'd definitely like some Mr. T babies since I can't have Mr. T  :D

Rooster arrival in about 2 weeks.  But he'll be only 7-8 weeks old.

 

Another lesson I learned is I think more chicks per hen is a good thing.  This one chick business may not have been the optimal set up. Safety in Numbers. Chaos is a good.

I'm sorry to hear that.

 

And yes, Kudos @NathanZee! I saw that as well. Great article!

"A day without sunshine is like, you know, night."

A very patient hubby, a busy boy, a growing fetus, flock of spoiled chickens, trio of Khaki Campbell ducks, mini flock of Muscovy ducks, there's a Rottweiler, bunny, trio of Peacocks, and cat in there somewhere, too. Oh, and wild turkeys that seem to think my yard is theirs. The struggle is real.

She also has Steinbacher Geese (I think that's what they're called) and one other breed that creeps me out. Egyptian Geese maybe? Who knows. I hope you get a few sales from her. I'd love to take some myself, but my waterfowl quarters are full.    

 

 

 

Excellent! I did check out that website. Very cool! The Tiger Bronze variety was my favorite. 

 

I'm more interested in Narragansetts than Bourbons, but we can chat before hatching season arrives and see what you think you'll have.

 

I saw a lady on CL has a breeding pair of Bourbons, but I'm not set up for any this year. Plus, it's a bit more fun to get poults sometimes.

 

 

 

 

Great news! At roosting time, I've also dabbed VetRX under their wings, the top of their heads, and lightly on their nostrils. I've heard of people using spray bottles with it mixed in as well and spraying their flock or the air. I love the stuff. Plus, it's a human friendly smell!

 

 

 

 

Ok thank you! Was her name Stephanie or Patty? Egyptians are little strange looking, or scary. :lol:

Haha thanks, maybe someday I will get turkeys, in fact I would probably have them except for what people say about blackhead with chickens and turkeys together.

That's a very valid  concern. Did you ever check with your extension agent to see if you have it in your area?

Yes, I did. They didn't really know, or said I would have to have the soil tested. :hu

really?    They think the parasite is going to be so numerous  that your one little sample you send in is going to have it???

 

 

 

Sounds like you talked to a clerk that had no idea what you were talking about..  I think the best thing is to get 2 poults and see what happens your out around 20 bucks if you have it, and ahead if you don't.
