barnie.gif  Ok, normally i ignore the ads that pop up when i sign in, but when i logged in and as i  hit my profile button, my eyes went up just in time to see the ad "we have chocolate orpingtons"..... and now i can't get back to it.  I keep logging out and in trying to get it to pop up, but i get burke and happy hens, everything BUT.  Chocolate orpingtons are super rare in the US, i saw a breeding trio go on here for over $1000 ! They say once they are more common the price will go down. True chocolates breed true like lavendars!

 

And yes, on the breeding thread i just HAD to ask "is there a choc bird who lays a choc egg?" :D So one of the breeders said she'd do it!

clap.gif But that was before i saw what the prices of the birds were..... :O

Anyone have any idea why my SLW's refused laying in their second year of existence? They got winter off hardly laid a thing all spring and then just stopped. The other birds were all 3 years or older. Plenty of calcium, plenty of greens, free ranging. Fox attack trauma? Can't think of anything else they all seemed very healthy. Very frustrating, it was. hu.gif



Swampducks - as you can tell I am a lady who spoils everything that does not run away.  I have had the best luck with egg production.   I honestly think that it is because I kept some heat on the chickens in the Winter, fed the best feed I could buy, kept them fenced with a 6ft privacy fence so they cannot see dogs, cars or anything that would stress them out. I separate birds that are picking on each other because that stresses the whole flock. I free ranged daily with human supervision (either kids playing in the yard or me gardening).  In Hawaii a lady showed me how to feed left over cooked fish to the chickens. The Omega 3 oils are FANTASTIC for egg laying.  We eat fish a couple times a week and I am sure to give the scraps of fish, even the skin to the chickens. We also have an attitude of gratitude toward our chickens. We hold them, pet them and thank them for the eggs. (Hey our friends in Hawaii make offerings to the volcano and land also...)

We have never used a nest box. We let the hens make their own nests where ever they want to. We provide oyster shell from the pet store and very very clean water - I filter it through a Brita Filter because I cannot stand the chlorine taste of water.  Anyhow - with all that spoiling - our laying age hens lay almost every day and we have had a mix of bantams and full size birds and breeds.  Hope something in what we do will help you!

I need help converting the Canada metric terms to American terms for the treatment- 500mg of tylan soluble powder per 1 litre of tap water. The tylan solution must be at 5 degrees for the process to work.

Thanks for any help.

I have the best rooster ever! Roger that is! Roger has been sticking to Leila like glue since she came out of the nest coop. Also, Fiametta sleeps in the garage with them. Mr. Fluffers comes in the garage and does his little sexy rooster dance at Fia, but she plays all coy and is having none of him while Roger is around. So funny the little hussy. Well Fia is throwing a fit cuz fluffy mcfluff-pants is not leaving her be. Roger, my sweet little Roger, who normally runs from Mr. Fluffers, attacked him! It was a total wow moment! Roger ran like he'll after he did it, and Mr. Fluffers was stunned stupid. And Me? Well I nearly peer my pants.
At the very least, wipe the poop off your feet before getting in the car.

Daron - one liter is a quart or 32 oz.

One gallon would be four liters.    So does that mean you would use 2000 mg of tylan per gallon?

Sorry garnering, the only math I am good at, is the one that tells me whether or not I have enough money to buy it!

I have no idea how to measure the 500mg to U.S terms too.

Is there a metric conversion table online some where?

Farmer boy, that amount is strictly by weight. You will need a digital kitchen scale you can convert to kilograms and because of that there is no way to say how many tsp or tablespoons it equates too. Good luck. You will need 2 grams for 4 liters.

or .02 ounces per liter I think. Don't quote me...I think.
