Thank you! Still crossing my fingers! It hasn't started zipping yet. I do have 4 rocks out though. I want to see it hatch so badly!
I have one lonely egg that goes into lock down tomorrow. My last rooster..wasn't her for long..too much crowing, but I got one of his fertile eggs to go this long. Hope it makes it through lock down.
I am setting some white silkies tonight..and some blue splash silkies tomorrow night.
Good luck with that one egg. I know how special those can be!
Well my first set of littles went out with the big girls today. Ive been putting them in a crate with them for over a week today we bit the bullet and they have all done great all day! Going the coop tonight was alot of fun though they weren't ready for bed... just like kids!
I really like your feeders as well. We have way too much wasted food around here!
I posted this in the emergency section but I thought I'd add it here incase some of you might know what to do.
One of our 4 week old serama chicks isn't walking. This has been going on for about 5 days now. She is the only one that acts like this. I figured she had botulism because I examined their chick starter and it had mold growth in it. I also found some bright green poop in the bedding. I cleaned out the brooder and got new feed. She eats and drinks well and walks to the food and water when I refill them. She is unstable and shakes.
I feed her boiled egg every morning and they get medicated chick starter during the day. I have tried dissolving vitamin b12 tablets in the water. I also tried vitamin electrolyte mix that has riboflavin. She isn't worse, but she isn't better. Will she ever walk again? Should I do therapy with her? If so, how do I do that?
I have been handling her a lot keeping her away from the others. I noticed that I haven't seen her poop.
Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thank you!
I'm sorry, I don't know what to say to help, but I hope your little chick is ok.
I love taking pictures of my chickens too! Adorable. I really like the 4th of July one, and the Christmas lights one.
Aww, adorable. I forgot that these little guys are messy. My daughter begs for them, but we have enough with our chickens right now.
