i use 1 t p gallon and 1 c sugar(hides the taste) for treatment, 1/2 t for maintinance once a month
Robin, that only comes to 5 cc per gal for treatment and 2 1/2 cc per gallon for maintenance which is half what I've always read to use. I've read and read and have always found Nana's amounts stated in one form or another. Did it help your birds when you used the lesser amount? Since it's raining buckets right now I think it'd be a good time to go read about the stuff some more.
All *8 of the Arauacana that were in lock down pipped and *7* hatched! I have 7 more little tiny rumpless babies! 1 died soon after pipping but the other 7 are all doing great. I have Blacks and Duckwings & the breeder thinks the yellows are probably Wheatens because that's what she's been breeding for. Joe, the 3 pullets I got from you-are they Duckwings? I'm not sure what the color on the double tufted one is called, is that a Duckwing also or a Wheaten? I won't mix the 10 babies with the 3 adults but this'll give me 10 little Rumpless Wonders and that completes my "No Butts Allowed" yard .
It feels so lonesome with an empty incubator :-( Is this called withdrawal?
Man oh man! What I'd give for your yard, Okla! It's beautiful and needs to be on the cover of some magazine. I can only imagine the work that went into something like that. I'm lucky to get mine mowed. I wish I had the talent to do what you do.
MacG, I guess me and you posted at the same time.
Nana, yes, the door's going on the left end. After seeing the picture of the pigeon in that coop though I'm wondering if I should go ahead and use plywood instead of 6" wide pickets to side it with.
