Hey Y'all! After a lot of waiting, our little flock arrived in the mail.  We just ordered four chicks, since we live in Oakland.  They arrived yesterday and we're smitten.

Quite a range of sizes.  That little chick is a spitfire.

barley fodder for chickens & goats; in nestable plastic trays, cover barley with water & a squirt of bleach for 2 days, drain, rinse 2x day, nest trays to day 3, then open to air, to chickens day 5, goats day 7.

Barley from www.azurestandard.com

Grains like pressure from above for 3 days, as if buried.

Anyone near Sunnyvale have a couple of fake eggs? My Dorkings have decided to start egg eating and I want to put in some of the ceramic faux eggs to stop them. The ones on EggCartons.com are perfect but shipping is $11 for a $2.95 egg!

I don't know if you have a Hobby Lobby store in your area but they sell them. Check craft stores too. smile.png

Hello! Your little cuties are super duper cute! Is the black and white one a frizzle?

post #7640 of 9475



Hi Anna,

 If you know anyone with small river rock you can just use them. Paint them white or whatever ifyou wqant but she won't care.....LOL. I bought some at the ceramic store near me if you have one near you. You will just need them in bisque not greenware if you don't do ceramics or have a kiln. They usually have them both ways.

 They have them on EBAY too.
