Articles from Peep-Chicken

I used a Brinsea Mini Advance. I started with 8 quail eggs from a local guy. The next day I added to fridge quail eggs. From 10 eggs, half were infertile. Two chicks pipped, never hatched. I had too low of a humidity. I ended with three chicks! One was a fridge egg. Click on the photos for larger versions. Coturnix take 18 days to hatch. Lockdown on day 15. Also! Many BYCers would highly recommend you do not candle everyday! Just day 9(to check for infertility) and day 15 to check for...
Oh no! There is something in my chickens eye! Well, that may just by an eye stye! I have looked on information regarding styes in chickens, and have found very little. I hope I have helped here compiling what I know. Basic Information on Styes: There are two types of styes: external and internal. Both are painful. The external styes develop on the outside of the eyelid, right next to an eyelash. This type of stye goes away on its own in a few days to a week. An internal stye is on the...

Before I start, let me state something. The person I got the eggs from, I have never had a good hatch (won't get more there again). The chickens aren't fed very well and have poor housing I found out after the last hatch. Eggs are porous and thin shelled. So from roughly 50 eggs to hatch in December, I got a dozen or so chicks. Only eight made it to two weeks old. So very upsetting. And from maybe a 80 I got from the person, there has been seven black chicks, one gold and two brown. The...
