I googled this thing you all are calling ' R-A-I-N' but from the definition of it I don't geuss we any around here.
We've replaced quite a few well pumps the past 20 yrs, the last one was 7 yrs ago and was a rebuilt $35 one-the only onewe could find at 10:00 on a SUnday night. The thing has lasted through thousands of water changes in my fish tanks plus everything else. I'd sure like to have more water pressure though-does a high hp pump give better water pressure?
Nana, I've got a lone 3 day old chick also. She's a keeper since she's out of the Brown Red Cochin pair before OKRacefan took him. I can't get her to eat! It seems they don't figure it out very well when they're alone. I tried putting different week old Orloff chicks with her but they screamed their heads off. He/she's so quite by herself. She thinks I'm her mama. I've GOT to get her to eat today. I've only seen her pick at it a few times. She was out of a pullet egg and is so tiny, like a Bantam Cochin but she's an LF. Both her parents are pretty big so I hope she catches up.
That's what I wrote earlier this morning but it wouldn't post for me. It just hung up and wouldn't do anything. I wonder what the deal is with BYC. I'm wishing now they hadn't changed it.
Anyway-I sat down again with the baby Cochin determined to get her to eat something since this is Day 3. Yolk sacs only last so long, ya know. I made stupid noises and tapped the food until I finally hit on the perfect stupid noise that made her dive into her wet mash
. I think it's just a matter of making a fool of yourself long enough before they'll eat. I'll have to keep getting her out today and re-doing it until her crop is properly stuffed like a good little Cochin baby.
