Thanks for any help.

I use this site so much that I have it book marked.

One litre = 4.22675 cups (4 1/4) or 33.814

500 mg = 0.5 gram = 0.0176 oz.

500mg/litre = 0.06676 oz/gallon  http://www.asknumbers.com/DensityConversion.aspx

Thanks! We do have a digital scale, and I will ask my mom to help me with that.

Just to be sure, its 2 grams for a gallon, right?

Who know maybe certain chickens I will raise to eat and some to keep. My son used to slaughter chickens at a farm so he knows how to do it.

If there is one thing I hate is sharks oh yeah and bears anything that I may come in contact with here in the states I don't like. I was raised in Southern California and swam in the ocean every summer and never gave it a thought of sharks lurking, we could have been eaten by a great white!!

I don't think it is cruel at all to give them a good life and then eat them.  I would like to see farm animals raised on pasture, treated humanely and killed humanely.  My dad was a farmer in Rockford when it was a 'cow town'. He took me to the slaughter house when I was 10 years old. I had no problem with it because the beef cattle that we watched be slaughtered were calm and did not suffer.  Hawaii does a GREAT JOB with their meat animals. I would rather eat local meat in Hawaii than anywhere. First of all they grass feed them. Second of all they believe the meat is best if the animals is calm when slaughtered - less adrenalin in the meat for us to ingest.  So they are very kind in transporting and slaughtering the animals. Thirdly, Hawaiians have less disease than we do because they are so isolated and they CONTROL the movement of plants and animals into Hawaii. So they have less disease in the animals and don't have to give antibiotics as much as we do on the mainland. The fish farms off the coast of Hawaii are a mess. Hopefully that won't be there when I go back. The fish are in a netted area and food is dumped in to them. Lots of poop in the water and sharks lurking - not pretty.  Better to buy and eat wild caught.

.07 ounces.
At the very least, wipe the poop off your feet before getting in the car.

Almost forgot I went to TSC to see the little chickies, they had red buff, buff, bsl, rir, br, rib, mixed bantams, some kind of duck, I can't remember what else. They also had stock gates blocking the bins. I wish I could get mine now.

Famerboy,

1 gallon equals 3.78 liters

This would then mean 1.875 grams of meds per gallon.

Its late here right now so I am hoping someone will qc my math.

Good luck

I love diving with sharks!  But I've only encountered Sand Tigers, White Tips, Black Tips and Nurse sharks. A great white might be a different story.

Years ago while camping in the hills above Malibu, our campsite was raided by a black bear. She ate every bit of our food in the cooler and then stuck her nose in the tent flap.

I did it! I went to TSC and came home without any chicks......I did buy a bag of chick feed though...tee,he,he,he,he! All their tanks were empty for one which had 4 Barred Plymouth Rocks in it. It was tempting, they were so cute! My DH even said to get them. But nope I said I was gonna wait a couple more weeks, get everything set to go and then get them. It's what will work best for me for I'm the one that does all the caring for.

This year they have them enclosed in a dog run.  You can see them fine but you have to get a salesperson to get them out.  What I didn't like was no breed separation.  There was a corporate printed sign that said "Red Pullets" and then a list of several breeds they may be.  Since I want the breed I want, not being tempted while in TSC was quite easy.

Our Tsc had a similar set up which I thought was good for the same reasons you posted. They had 6-8 tanks, each individually labeled with what was in them and a description of the breed, purpose, egg production and tolerances. Makes selection very easy if you didn't know exactly what you wanted.

This how all animals should be handled and it is the way I observed farming when it came to raising & slaughtering.

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!

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

Now after reading this I'll have to go and search. Sounds like a cool bird. I love my Buff Orps and they are such good layers!!

How many backyard chicken keepers does it take to figure out the imperial measurement system?

Well, it turned out to be a pretty nice day here, despite the wintry temps.  The sun was out most of the time and the wind wasn't too bad so we did some outdoor work this afternoon.  Installed a new gate on the alpaca paddock.  Took the geese about 5 minutes to figure out they could slip out through this one and go AWOL.    They're now mating in the mud puddles in the driveway.  Dirty birds, anyway.  Cut the lumber for two new hog huts and framed one before running out of screws.  Whoops!  Cleaned out the chicken coop and gave them fresh straw.  Re-bedded the hog houses and felt up the expecting sows.  See, Raz? I do have an inappropriate side!  Set a post for a gate.  It dug easy, peasy with the by-hand post hole digger; no frost in the ground here.  Bundled up feed bags to return to the mill on the next trip over.  And even got all the chores done early.  Now DH is in the kitchen prepping some porterhouses for the grill while watching the race.  I walked out there and said, "Oh, no! This?! Again? Already?!"  And he just smiled and said, "Yep! But... wait!  It means summer!"  He knows my weaknesses.  I do love summer.
