How so? I had been under the impression they were just big turkeys written in a small font and lowercase . That said, I've never heard of a BB eating as bantam, so it sounds like maybe midget whites have the bantam attitude, particularly after seeing your little tom puffing and strutting all over the yard.

A very good book. It's full of very useful information, pictures, and tips. I'd recommend it.

Featured Stories on BackYard Chickenspost #41992 of 499437/7/15 at 12:16pmVet visit for "Alli" went well. It's not brain or an infection. They've never seen it before but did pull fluid but said it was mostly blood. Viewed under a microscope. So she stated we should just wait it out and discuss removing if we choose once "she's " bigger and can handle the anesthesia. I'm just concerned because it's growing faster than she is and it makes me think it will be bigger than her head before too long. So strange. The vet also said it didn't appear to have a pocket or a solid mass. She said she poked around in it with a needle. After a local anesthetic of course.
This is her at hatch again. For comparison.
Today after our visit.

@ellymayRans Maybe it's just going to be an extra large crest.

IU Hoosier.post #41994 of 499437/7/15 at 12:21pmI've put her in with the broody hen and her babes. Momma doesn't mind. But boy Alli really doesn't want to part with me! She kept going through the crate holes and running after me. I had to put some things around the bottom but I can hear her out there just peeping so loud! I put her under momma twice now and once she's there she's content but only for a bit. Momma has about trampled the others because of Alli leaving the brooder. She's making her a nervous wreck!post #41995 of 499437/7/15 at 12:27pmQuote:I thought maybe it was a feather cyst from the crest but they said no those will be cheesy inside. If it was just to do with the crest it shouldn't seep and bleed. Plus they don't start forming for awhile yet and there's no lump associated with them. So??Originally Posted by Mother2Hens

I originally wondered because the egg was marked with a "G" and I wasn't sure why that maybe it was a Green so I had to look that up because I know nothing about them. I asked the seller the day it hatched but have not gotten a response. Maybe it stood for Guess!! Lol!!post #41996 of 499437/7/15 at 12:53pmQuote:
Weird, the first time I googled it it showed up north of Fort Wayne. I must have typed it in wrong or something. Very strange.post #41997 of 499437/7/15 at 1:36pm
I should be taking advantage of this rainy day by getting some inside work done, but I kinda just feel like leisurely looking at our thread.
@wheezy50 ~ Love your photos! Your raised beds look perfect and your chickens do, too.
Here's our "garden." The only totally sunny area is around the pool. Last year we had a lower sized bed like yours. This year I told DH that I thought a taller bed would be nice for handy access. He built one out of redwood ($200!) and then we realized how much soil was needed to fill it! Me and my bright ideas! DH did admit that it's easier to watch the plant grow each day. It's also probably easier because these plants are kind of spindly this year!
The photo unfortunately shows the messy, unfinished part of the flagstone path that I've worked on for two summers (it started at the top of the hill by the chicken coop). I'm waiting for the forecast to improve.
Here's the long lost brother of my precious Lionel. We adopted Purrcy last fall, and he and Lionel remembered each other after 4 years apart.
Purrcy is enjoying the catnip. Honeybees enjoy it, too.

I've also had to find a temp place for my roos as they are tearing up my girls! I think I already know the answer to this but do I want to keep roos that don't seem to be able to mate without making a mess out of my hens?post #41999 of 499437/7/15 at 3:20pmpost #42000 of 499437/7/15 at 3:31pmPicture time
Cream legbar CL
Maybe too many ....
The two in the back are the two CL Roosters. The cotton-ball head is one of the TP and the big yello is a buff Orpington, potentially found a home for her and the EE.
