Ugh, yes several. Eggs are way down here too.
Morning everyone! I got all of my youngsters sorted last night. 9 obvious roosters that will go for processing October 30th. I wouldn't be surprised if another few late bloomers showed up. 9 roosters out of 28 youngsters seems like way too good a female ratio to me! The Bielie mix roos could be processed now at 15 weeks. They are HUGE. The others are still a bit small. I am hoping they hit a growth spurt in the next 6 weeks!
Work has been insane, I volunteered for a super intense project in a bid to get some attention and a possible promotion. It is going well but is keeping me super busy and the stress level is high. I am also prepping to put down the old horse in the next couple of weeks. I have one more vet appointment on Friday to see if there is anything I missed or anything else to try. I am sad and stressed about that as well. I hate having to make that decision. He is 28 years old. :(
Hope everyone is well!
Wow sounds busy for you! I am terribly sorry about your horse, thats a rough thing to go through.
I need help sexing 2 of my silkies. I hatched them from eggs I got from @kabhyper1 back in April so they are now almost 24 weeks old. I keep going back and forth because they have decent sized combs, but big round puff balls and they are of good size.
So should it be Jethro and Tony, or Ziva and Zoe?
I'm really confused on this one because they have not started laying eggs or crowing yet?
@kabhyper1 silkies are show quality, they won't have waddles. Her birds are bearded. Hopefully she can have a look and see if they are boys or girls. Honestly, both look hen to me, but I am not a good judge. @bradselig may be able to help also.
