INDIANA BYC'ers HERE! - Page 3990

post #39891 of 50258
Thread Starter 

Having some really long days lately, am pretty far behind on posts. Have my last spot bookmarked and hope to catch up next week. Want to say welcome! :frow to any new folks posting to our thread! Really looking forward to our chickenfest, so many of you will be great to see again, and to meet :D

Still haven't made it down to open our camper. Really miss fishing and camping. Having some really great hatches, any one still looking for Lavender orpington or EE please send a pm, will not be setting any more to incubate otherwise.

Have decided to part with my OEGB flock, and just keep my modern game bantams. The OEGB will be leaving this weekend, and will really miss them but they need to have more social time than I can give them. Just an awesome breed, but they miss interaction with people. Totally unfair to them! Want them to have more attention than I can give them right now. When I go to feed and water, I have 6 tiny birds climbing on my arms and shoulders. They are really lonely, makes you feel awful. Oldest DD is taking them with her since she is moving and can give them the attention they deserve.

 

I will still be hatching:

Pearl and lavender guineas.

Bourbon Red and Midget White turkeys.

Black, chocolate, and lavender Muscovy duck (most are pied and/or barred!).

Pekin duck if requested only.

Coturnix quail if requested only.

Please, send me a pm if interested.

Dr. Wakenell, the Purdue avian specialist, was a featured guest on NPR recently regarding the avian influenza epidemic.  ISPA sent info, including the link to the online broadcast of the interview.  For those of you who would like to know more, this is a very good resource.  I listened to most of it live in my car.

 

To ISPA NPIP Small Flock, Game Bird Flock Owners And Interested Parties:

 

Today (April 15, 2015), on the NPR program, Here & Now, Dr. Pat Wakenell was interviewed for a segment titled “Bird Flu Spreading to Poultry Farms in the Midwest.”

 

From the NPR Website:

 

A poultry farm in Iowa announced yesterday that part of the flock there had contracted the latest round of the bird flu.  The H2N2 strain of the virus is highly contagious among birds, but scientists say not contractible by humans. What does this outbreak mean for consumers in the U.S.? Patricia Wakenell, associate professor of avian diagnostics at Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine discusses this with Here & Now’s Robin Young.

If by butt you mean the base of their back just above the tail, then yes it is the rooster's doing. If it is elsewhere, then it's not from mating.

Nope either they were scrambled or not fertile. No signs of development at all. sad.png

Played music chickens tonight and moved some chicks to brooder in garage and others outside to their new pen. Snapped some pics of some birds. I love this ugly showgirl! I was hoping it would be a cockerel but I think it is a pullet. Her brothers combs are much larger and showing red coloring.


The buff/buff barred/calico? Batam Cochin chicks. Loving the frizzled buff hen!
