Hi - New chicken owner from Chester County…. Maybe someone local can help me out with a few things? First, can I move my 8 week old chicks outside to their new coop today? Without a heat lamp? Second, it appears that 5 of my 6 chicks may be roosters. How can I find new homes for the roosters ( I may keep one ), and where can I find some new friends of same age for the single hen? What is the method to introduce new chickens to the group?
Thank you for any help you can offer !
On the roosters, if you could post some pictures, it might make it more difficult for those of us on here to resist getting them, especially if we've kinda been wanting the breed anyway.
Well we decided that quail won't be worth it. We are having a huge issue with flies right now. Hubby tells me to go online and look for some bird that eats flies. The search came up with Muscovy ducks. Looks like we will be getting some Muscovy ducks in the future. Been looking on craiglist and haven't seen any by me. I hope they will help with the fly problem and ticks too!
Hands down Muscovies are the best for fly control. In the past I've had Muscovies and a lot less flies.
**Wing- You had mentioned you love pasta... Have you ever had couscous? It is a tiny pasta ball, kinda reminds you of rice, you can make casseroles or salads with that. Also, the super food- Quinoa is great!! it has everything in it and it is not processed..it is what it is. It is good hot or cold...I have a few recipes I make with that if you would be interested..or anyone else for that matter.
I am a good one for taste testing. I'll even do it at no cost!
OK... I am on another egg search, though this time it is not for me, but I have been requested to find some eggs for a relative of a good friend. Apparently this lady is trying to find Americauna eggs (they are the blue egg layer, right?)
So... does anyone here have Americauna eggs or know someone who does so that I can help her make a connection to get her eggs?
We have a Lavender Americauna rooster with a blue Americauna hen. The hen lays a blue-ish egg rather than a green-ish egg. As soon as we fill our current order you could have all you want, but remember we only have the one hen that is Americauna. We have 2 others that are Easter Eggers and they lay the more green-ish eggs.
