So a Cygnet swan isn't a breed of Swan but a young Swan?

Love those babies! love.gif

I declare that Cochin babies are the cutest, (and NNs too. Everyone is killing me with their Naked Neck chicks).

 

Yesterday I crossed a line - I got a little Americauna hen from Miss Lee. She brought her to Blanchard for me. I couldn't stand it any more. Jack's Blue Americaunas are too beautiful. I had to have some blue egg layers of my own. I don't plan on getting as many as the 45 Cochins that I have but one or 2 can join my non-breeding pen. It wont be hard to separate their eggs anyway. I'd like to get a NN hen too but her eggs would be harder to separate. I don't want any NN/Cochin crosses. I've seen some in pictures and those are some strange looking birds

I've been known to make noise about animals that aren't treated right.  I just called them and told them to go check their chicks.  While he was walking over there he said they were all doing fine.  I told him he better look closer.  Then he said "well, some of them are sleeping".  I mentioned the duramycin and he said that it's out there because it goes in their water.  I told him if he put his hand in there they probably wouldn't move and run around like they're supposed to and then I told him somebody that knows what they're doing better check them out or they were gonna lose them all.   He thanked me for calling and said they would look into it.  Sure.............

 Not only were they passing off unhealthy chickens on purpose, but the medicine was just sitting there for any kid to get a hold of. I mean it was right out in the open at about 3 year old eye level. These chickens were definitely not right.

I just love that picture. Unfortunately, my dog killed one of my hens today so no more dog in the chicken pen here or over at Jack's when I am helping catch birds. I thought Louie was doing so well. He ignores the birds walking around but a hen on a nest is just too much of a temptation for him.

Plus, i loved that little hen. hit.gif

 Buster they also have aquaculture research that is ongoing as well.

 

 The workshop is April 28th of this year

I had to read that twice to figure out if you meant human offspring or goat offspring. lol.png

Shawnee's Atwoods has a knowledgable employee that watches the chicks very carefully. She really gets after anyone who tries to touch any birds. She can't be there all the time though.

Yesterday, I separated the brown runner ducks from the blue runner ducks.  This evening, I found a nest in the blue runner duck pen, that initially appeared to only have one egg.  I was surprised to find about 2 dozen duck eggs in the nest.  Since some have been there awhile (there was a silkie egg in the nest and the silkies came out the day of the first big rain, I am going to boil them and feed them back to the chickens.  It is amazing how they can hide a nest in plain sight when there is 6 inches of straw in their area.  Now, I need to find some information about how long the blue runners could still be fertilized by the brown drake, then start hatching ducklings once the "all clear" time is over.
