Violet always looks grumpy, so... lol.png






I love all of your Easter-eggers. Especially the little one next to the Polish. love.gif It's amazing to me how EEs can be such derpy birds, but produce such evil looks!

Aww pretty girls.  The EE's are skilled at the stink eye. Kiwi is one of my favorites. She is so tiny, and she lays a little bitty aqua colored egg. I didn't even know their were bantam EE's until I got her. She was the one of thecutest chicks I have ever seen too

Awww, yeah, there's just something about bantams, isn't there? love.gif Of course, my only bantam EE turned out to be a cockerel and he was a real spaz, but he really was adorable as a chick!

I keep more than one Rooster or I have human aggression problems. I just deal with them if it comes up, but not ok for my parents.

Good veining, you got babies developing!

5 am and they want you to get them NOW. Our postmaster is afraid of them escaping and attacking people roll.png
Its good software. Agreed, better too many questions than not enough.


What are you looking for? I raise a few different types.
Use your zip, its usually the PO you need.


I have done both, a lot. Try to keep within a state away.
I had a goose egg like this last year was almost 7 oz. very odd but does happen. I had 4 yolks by time it was opened! She is also a huge Embden hen, still pretty surprising to find 2 eggs in 1. Especially with a second shell!
I'll take anything bantam hatching eggs or bantams

I may have some bantam mix young adults available to rehome. They would be cochin, silkie, millie or OEGB mixes.

Interesting. 

 

Do these traits pass on from hen to chick? and   Are there other factors?    We hatched out 9 chicks from 13 shipped eggs & only two were male.  Could that breeder have done something to increase her odds of females?  (ie - changing hens' diet   or   in my case, stop using Omelet's mom for hatching eggs since she has more male offspring)  Could I be doing something during the incubation to make it harder for males - but not females  - to hatch?

Those questions I don't know the answers too.  The gender being set by the hen came up in the NYD hatch a long.  But no one really seemed to have a greta way to make females only.

I'm re-thinking living in Indiana!  After being stranded after hours with a broken wheel bearing on my truck I came home to frozen pipes and a frozen hydrant in the barn.....woke up to the same plus a frozen chicken waterer.  WHY DOES ANYONE LIVE IN THE MIDWEST!?!?!?!?!?!?

I watched the Ken Burns show on the Dust Bowl.  I can promise you I prefer winter cold to a dust storm.  

Ugh agreed! Dust is much worse.

Questions, Questions, and MORE Questions:

 

What is the best way to heat an 8 x 12 shed if I want to use part of it to brood mid sized chicks and part of it as a birthing stall for goats.

Next on goats, if i have 2 does give birth very close together can one nurse the other's kid or will the kids know who to nurse from.  I'm hoping that the kids sell fast because I want the milk.  Or maybe that one of the moms does the nursing and the other is milked.  My children love goats milk and the milk can be used for cheese, soap, even pink eye treatments. 

I'm also looking for recommendations for disbudders / dehorners.
