I've never bothered with purchasing Happy Hen Treat Mealworms, because I just purchase the mealworms for wild birds. Same exact thing for nearly half the price. And you probably even get more...
I have been raising buff Orpingtons for years now, and they never cease to entertain me. My favorite hen, Brooklyn is one of the best layer hens I've ever had. She is a awesome mother (has hatched...
These are my absolute favorite chicken. Each one of them has their own personality, as well as their own unique patterns and colors of "flowers". They will run to you when they see you and come...
I have never had a hen, but my friend bought me one, who was crazy, and then all her chickens got stolen. Then she got another one for herself, and that girl is crazy, and then I got one for me,...
If I was going to have only one breed forever, it would very likely be EE's. If I sit down outside, I've got 5 chickens trying to fit on my lap! They are one of the few chickens I let little kids...

Don't worry. It will be fine!Swedish ducks, golden comets and a light brahma roo, lavender orpingtons, bantam orpingtons (chocolate, black, mauve, splash), bantam cochins, old english bantams (silver duckwing and self blue), and Seramas!Swedish ducks, golden comets and a light brahma roo, lavender orpingtons, bantam orpingtons (chocolate, black, mauve, splash), bantam cochins, old english bantams (silver duckwing and self blue), and Seramas!post #11442 of 1695612/17/15 at 5:57pmpost #11443 of 1695612/17/15 at 6:42pmQuote:You can ask to be put under, my aunt did that. I was the opposite, when they told me it was time for an emergency c-section, I was terrified if they put me under, I wouldn't wake up. Then they keep you in the hospital for a few days usually I think. We had to stay longer, but in the hospital there are people in and out checking in you and the baby.Originally Posted by sryglet
Ok, the "feeling like my guts were going to fall out" thing is really freaking me out the hospital will be giving me a belly binder, so hopefully that helps... ugh. I'd so much rather have a natural delivery. I hate surgery... and the fact that I have to be conscious for it and then go straight to taking care of a newborn just scares the crap out of me.post #11444 of 1695612/17/15 at 6:45pmQuote:That's great news! Happy to hear it!Originally Posted by sryglet
The babies seem to be doing fine outside. The older ducks didn't even seem to notice them at all. I've checked on them a shamefully huge amount of times... haha... and they're not shivering or even huddled together, they're just hanging out. I decided to leave the two slightly younger ones inside for just a few more days, then everyone will be ready to be outside. But the oldest ones that are currently out there seem to fit right in and they're comfortable and not too cold. Yay!!post #11445 of 1695612/17/15 at 8:55pm@Miss Lydia
Or anyone with experience with angel wing... I need some advice, please... I think Io is developing angel wing... I've never had to deal with it in any of my ducks, so want to make sure and check about wrapping it... not sure if I should wait a bit before wrapping or do it now...
These pics were taken just now as soon as I noticed it...
This pic I took just last night and didn't even see the bit of the wingtip sticking out until I pulled up the pics I took tonight...
Any advice is appreciated and confirmation that this is angel wing?? Thank you...post #11446 of 1695612/18/15 at 3:42amSwedish ducks, golden comets and a light brahma roo, lavender orpingtons, bantam orpingtons (chocolate, black, mauve, splash), bantam cochins, old english bantams (silver duckwing and self blue), and Seramas!post #11447 of 1695612/18/15 at 3:44ampost #11448 of 1695612/18/15 at 3:56amRav did you ever look at the Angel wing thread? I keep looking at the pics but I cannot tell anything from them....but I'm pretty sure the only fix is to wrap her. But she seems kinda little to wrap....but I don't know maybe it's easier to wrap then at her age. Someone will eventually answer you and tell you what to do. At least you know it won't effect her health.....wish I had more for you.

Yeah, I looked at that thread... and others, and googled, and went through my books, lol...
I do think wrapping in some way is needed, but trying to figure out exactly how to do it... it's such a tiny piece and all the others I could see were older and more feathered...
Heard wrap all the way around and just the wing tip...post #11450 of 1695612/18/15 at 4:12amI think you have time...like I said my girl her wings were sticking out there....she wouldn't take being wrapped...I have no idea how those people did it....lucky she turned out okay.....I gave up and figured it wasn't going to hurt her anyway and she is basically a pet anyway...you need some sleep girl....Phil
