post #73161 of 88735

oh things will work out... will talk to kids dad after the weekend because if i tried to call this weekend, his girlfriend wouldn't let him answer the phone.  But it will work out.  We usually are able to talk just not when the gf is around  lol. 

 

I know tomorrow should be a better day!  going to a grandson's last baseball game of the year and also going to the farmer's market.  Going to do a little cleaning at the new house...  smiles smiles smiles...  It will be 2 weeks before we can actually start moving into the place which involves putting in water heater and a little wiring so I can hook my stove up.

 

House only has a wood cook stove with a steam water heater attached to it.   Seems strange to be excited about hard work but it is my house so I am loving it.!!!!!

My group: The girls: 3 speckled sussex, 4 barred rock,. The Boys:  2 white chicks, 3 rouen ducks.   We also have 1 scottish fold cat,  1 1/2 persian 1 red heeler dog.  I'm a full time college student.  2 kids, 3 stepkids, 8 step grankids.  that's all of the bunch I think.

Nature:  I built a bucket with nipples...I can't get the birds to use it. Course I still have their bucket of water to dip from. I dont' want to take it away from them. How do you teach them?  I tried to hang something shiney off of it so they would go for it...but NO. Still nothing.

Oh Most Deffiantly CR, they are very small and spindly. No one would want them, trust me I just saw them, A real embarassment.. LOL i can not say that with a straight face..lolroll.png

From everything I've read, chickens will *always* prefer standing water to nipple waterers; they're too much like the puddles chickens are instinctually drawn to. If you want them to use the nipple waterers you probably have to remove the buckets for a while. They're actually very smart birds and will peck at it just to investigate; it only takes them a single peck to realize that's where they get water from. I did notice my babies drink more from traditional waterers than their nipple waterer though, I think simply because they like it better. I'm sticking with tradtional because I want them always drinking a lot of water so we have healthy birds and larger eggs. HTH!

I was wondering the same thing. I can't find a members pages anywhere!

They are articles now. 

 

You can find them in your profile, it takes a little doing. Unclick all the green buttons except articles to search for it. About 1/2 way down the page.

You can link to them using the "my coop" field in your profile. Like I did

 

Imp

Do you think you have to be a gold feather member? I couln't find it anywhere after clicking off the green buttons.

 

 

 

I don't think so.

I can get to your page, but can't add it to your community profile.

 

Here's the link to your pages

http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/kmhunters-chicken-coop

 

Highlight & copy the link,

go into your profile,

click on edit community profile,

scroll to the bottom, 

to the coop field box(it's the last one)

Paste it in and it will show up under your avatar/name.

in Yamhill OR, It is illegal to predict the future

 

In Canada, children must not be buried alive in snow deeper than 6 feet

 

In New Mexico the State Constitution prevents idiots from voting

 

In Kentucky, by law, anyone who has been drinking is "sober" until he or she cannot hold onto the ground  (hmmm?)

 

In Italy, it is illegal to practice the profession of being a fraud (who'da thunk it!)

 

In Maryland, it is illegal to mistreat oysters (Now, How does one mistreat an oyster, pray tell?)

 

but my favourite has to be in Switzerland, where it is illegal for banks to refuse vault owners to store dead relatives in their vaults - provided the period of storage does not exceed 7 months!
