Hey! I am looking for show quality cornish or white plymouth rock chicks near me.Pre-vet student who just wants a simple and holistic life with her crazy herd of 50+ brood cows, two jennys continuously followed by an old gelding, a pack of rabbit dogs, two collies, a tom cat who may just be a black panther, a fish tank with questionable contents, a flock of cuckoo sizzle chickens and a nigerian dwarf who may just be a dog herself on a plot of land that started a town in 1939.Pre-vet student who just wants a simple and holistic life with her crazy herd of 50+ brood cows, two jennys continuously followed by an old gelding, a pack of rabbit dogs, two collies, a tom cat who may just be a black panther, a fish tank with questionable contents, a flock of cuckoo sizzle chickens and a nigerian dwarf who may just be a dog herself on a plot of land that started a town in 1939.post #2215 of 30752/2/16 at 8:19ampost #2216 of 30752/2/16 at 8:52amQuote:
It's funny right after I wrote this, we got a heat wave. The snow has melted, and the chickens are finding green grass. They are very happy!
The weather man is calling for an inch of rain tonight- it should have been snow. I'm just thankful it's not freezing rain (ugh).
I'm counting the days till I get my new Dark Cornish chicks (hatchery). Three more months to wait!
Edited by CanadianBuckeye - 2/2/16 at 8:53ampost #2217 of 30752/2/16 at 9:00amCanadianBuckeye, hope theyre decent quality. Ive never had anything very remarkable from a hatchery. Nice birds by their own right but nothing Ive been wild about but I never did keep up with the feed I was giving them or anything. I was thinking about the feed suggestions you sent me a while back. Might have to try to implement it. Really want two pens so I can try fermented feed to one pen.post #2218 of 30752/2/16 at 10:44amQuote:Originally Posted by sambat

I'm not expecting anything anywhere near exhibition quality, but I am hoping they won't look like pea combed Barnevelders! Although I can forgive that if they lay like Barnevelders.
I do have one hen from last year that I like, so if I get a half decent cockerel I'll be pleased. Around here the chickens have to run faster than the coyotes so I need decent leg length.
I've not tried fermented feed, but I may for the very young chicks. If their poops get too wet that will be the end of that.
The older chickens get quite a bit of variety including meat and free range so I don't feel there's a need for it there.post #2219 of 30752/2/16 at 10:50ampost #2220 of 30752/2/16 at 11:04amQuote:
In my experience, the wetter the feed the wetter the poop. But that wasn't fermented, that might be different. I fed my week olds some Radicchio, they loved it but I obviously over did it, and had to deal with pasty butt for a week afterwards.
