@ellymayRans caught my error — I corrected the birth year which was 2014! I don't think egg binding is the issue because I found an egg she laid the day before that DH hadn't collected. I saved it in case it helps and I also have some of her poop. I'm supposed to call vet back after 2:00pm today to find out if he will do a necropsy. I'm guessing he will.
Yes! I saw your Oliver! He is SO handsome! @chick rookie has a lot of gorgeous chickens and other animals. I could go on and on! I wanted to steal one of her darker colored EEs that had double laced feathers with a similar look of a silver barnevelder. She had a part BR and part (forgot) roo that had random colored feathers mixed in with black and white barred feathers. Michelle has pens with a variety of chickens, dogs, goats, and horses. It would make a great petting zoo if it weren't for biosecurity concerns. (I washed/sanitized my boots and when I returned home, I showered, washed my hair, etc.)
Since I have my new Lacy in quarantine inside, would it be okay if I took her outside for a little bit to a neighbor's yard where my chickens haven't been? I know that I am the only one in our subdivision that's ever had chickens. It's sunny today and almost 50 degrees.
Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed the tour.. lol my grand kids and their friends come over and are allowed to go play in my petting zoo, but I know them all and they don't have any animals other than maybe 3 dogs between all of them, so I think I'm ok with it. It has been said I should do that here, but really just don't want too. lol
No Lacy has never had pelleted feed, I did try it 1 time but the littles all seemed to have troubles with it so I just went back to my crumble. The only worm I have ever seen Lacy eat was 1 of those tiny red worms, and 1 is enough, she wants no more!! lol o and dont try and give her a crub... oh my she will freek out!!!
After you left I went out to make sure Mr apple pig ( Doc ) didn't give himself a belly ach ( he didn't ) and Ransom came up and nosed around in the bucket..... then he wanted some!!! The dork.
Bob ( the rooster you were wondering about ) is BR/Welsummer, he was the lat chick hatched from my original Kellogg ( Welsummer ) before he passed.
I am so very happy that you and Lacy are getting along so well. And I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for giving her a loving home. I missed her ridding around with me at feed time today.
