If anyone need Roos let me know! :-)
Cool! I still might want a buff roo, once i get the pullets back from my friend and i make sure theyre all pullets
I been busy guys im sorry your lookn at probs Lakones if theres Anything i can do, u know im only a call away. I have no more chicks n the house right now! Its very quite and empty :-/ but thats okay!
Thats an example of the 88 pharroh quail eggs i set... Im only keeping about twenty, the other half the hens are for a friend, the roos are going to make a great dinner
And on a bad note: i lost one of my Isbar chicks, it seemed to have an impacted crop but it went down Really fast, im still looking into it, if anyone has any ideas? The crop wasnt hard, or hot like infection, the chick wasnt cold it was one of the last three runts still Inside until today :-/ there was no rotten odor but he seemed Really skinny and when i massaged his crop it sent liquid out his nose... It sort of sucks a lil extra becuz ive kinda babied the 2 Isbars, and my one runt Bresse hen :-/ havent quite Named them becuz im workin away from that... Toward thicker skin :-/
And i lost four chicks in the shed on the night before last, i believe due to trampling
had to add a second bulb in my shed, and @lakones
u remmember how Warm that shed was? :-/
Theres no green poop anywhere or anything, no sinus stuff, head shakes... Ive concluded they just got too cold
kinda spooky though, so many deaths, in two pens out of six.
