Thank you so much for the help in identifying breeds this is the first time I kind of just winged it and got a surprise. I LOVE every second of it, but I was told I cannot keep them all so i am trying to figure out the breeds now so I can make my decisions. I definitely have to look up french marans I havent seen those before o.o! I don't think any of them have 5 toes, then again chasing them around its not always easy to count toes :D. Our farm and fleet does not have chicks. Its probably a good thing. I;d be in chicken debt.
I did post in the chicken breed roo/pullet thread I took new pictures at the week old mark while i checked for pasty butt and cleaned the brooder. I deleted the blurry ones and the ones that I know for sure are "duplicates"/ same breed. I figure thats a LOT of pictures to ask people to go through.
I would LOVE some EE's but at this point I think my family would disown me if I brought anymore home. I am pushing for some cayugas cause well. I've wanted them since I saw them the first time. Maybe next year. A girl can hope.
I hope you have some resolution with your predator problem. I am still very sorry for your loss. I just lost my favorite hen, I used to stand in the coop right by her roost and pet her while she coo'd at me. Found her this morning about 150 + feet from the coop behind oen of our buildings stomach ripped out and eaten. Her head and neck were all still attached. I am reinforcing the coop with what I have until I can get to the store and buy more material. I have a feeling I know how it got in. ~shakes head~ I had a feeling something was going to happen after reading about your attacks I should of taken it more seriously :(. So I went and got the ducks and sat and watched them swim to lighten my mood a bit.
Jim~...umm where on earth are your seeds coming from??? It sounds like they have been on quite a journey.
I will have to check on the ducks little feetsies when I go out there.
OMG do the grow fast though! I mean they are twice the size of the chicks already. I cant believe it I went out this morning and swear they grew overnight.
Our garden is sprouting to, so are the weeds. I dunno what it is that is growing in there but wow raking everyday I am barely keepign up with it. I guess at least it is good exercise?
Cordless~ Chicks are CUTE, but dont ask me for help identifying them ~shakeshead~
Im sure I missed some posts here, Unfortunately my computer auto updated to windows 10 while I slept and I am having a heck of a time with it. I hate it and am having a lot of problems and error messages with devices failing -.-. so until I get it fixed I will be on intermittently. Although I have no idea how I am going to fix it. But I hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather!
