He said he did find just a small amount of yeast on the stain after I left Friday so he sent some meds home for that plus said to keep her on the meds for bacteria also. He probably got enough of it out Friday when he flushed her so she could digest the rest.
Les, thanks for the info on the quitter eggs. This one in question just *looks different than the others. There's veins but only a few. I suppose if I wait a day or 2 those will be absorbed. I don't think it's alive but I'm not positive enough that I'm willing to put it in the freezer just yet.
Christina, the history on Fat Louie cracked me up lol! I know how your DD feels. My very 1st hatch was my LF Cochins. That batch will always be my favorites. I don't feel so bad about my 1 LF Fav girl being bald after I heard you've got that problem, too. I don't think it'd even help if I got the boy even more more hens. She's his favorite and won't leave his side, she just makes it too easy for him. I've considered separating them til her head feathers grow back but they'd both be miserable and as soon as they were together the same thing would happen. ANd for the record-if I had 50 Guinea keets at my house I'd be staying at the Motel 6 :-O
Robin, that Silkie/Cochin cross is adorable :-)) I'm too scared to breed crosses yet, I want to wait and see if I'll be able to find homes for the purebred boys. My luck nobody will want boys, purebred or not.
Brandy, your 1st egg?? Is Bonnie one of the Red Stars? I remember how excited I was when my precious Cochin girls laid their 1st eggs-all on the same day. I saved them, I'll keep them forever.
Nana, I came soooo close to getting some d'Anvers eggs the other day. I got the Plymouth Rock bantams instead. There was a Dun Cuckoo color that Boggy Bottoms has that I'd love to get. Is there anything cuter than those Cochin babies though??? Your hands are so pretty holding that frog. Poor frog though, I'd never be able to kill him and eat him. I adore toads and frogs.
OkieT-Chalk one up for Seramas! I know my little Serama boy is one of the highlights of my life every single day. What a happy ending for him and the little Cochin both :-)
, I had no idea you had Araucanas. Alright, all of you are being forewarned.....I'm trying to talk Joe out of some Araucanas. I need you all to back off before it comes to blows
Joe, It makes me wonder how many other breeds you've got that I've looked for and couldn't find. I'd even gladly take a boy if he was one of the BBR. My God, those birds are gorgeous.
Oops, forgot the pics I was going to post. The little Bantam Fav girl who seems to be better now and one of the little LF Silver Laced Cochins that hatched Saturday while I was at POOPS.
