klop klop, the splitter looks great, bet you will get a ton of use out of it.
Talked to Dr.Porter. im going to send him pics and write up a timeline on what has happened with her. he said he is interested and is curious. he will look it over and get back to me. As long as she seems fine now just let her be as long as i dont think its contagious and if it is chances are the other girls would by now be showing signs.
That's cool. He is really so helpful. Keep us posted.
Well, this morning I am pretty convinced chickens are better creatures than I am. They are out in this cold, ankles deep in snow, just loving life. I stood out there for 5 minutes and think I may need to have some toes removed. We got 2 eggs today, two of my freeloading snuggle chickens started laying a week ago at about 33 weeks old. My crested cream legbar lays olive colored eggs...not blue, and my super blue egg layer (ameraucana x leghorn) is now dubbed a barely-blue egg layer. If you squint really hard her eggs are blue, if they still look white, press on your eyeballs really hard and look again It looks like the Jersey will be next. If anyone has any guesses what the cross of this massive 7+ lb hen is, have at it. We were told Swedish flower x blue Orpington. I am thinking blue jersey x eagle x Swedish flower. She is huge, dopey, and the most unique colored chicken I've seen.
She is just gorgeous, love the coloring.
And Scandia, hooray on the rooster butchering.
Thank you. I own black jersey, silver, brahma, comet, red production and 2 buff orpington hens. I used to have different types of breeds but i am trying to pick out the most heavest chicken that lay the most eggs so it will work out the best for both meat and eggs. But, sometimes i do order cornish chicks for meat use only.
Welcome. We have a few folks who aren't too far from you who come on this thread.
I have rabbits too. What breeds of those do you have?
