    Wisconsin "Cheeseheads"

    If anyone is going to be needing a wyandotte rooster, I have some really fun colors. I'm in Western WI, but I have a kid going to school in the UP, so will be crossing the state more than I want to.

    Wisconsin "Cheeseheads"

    Wyodreamer, I actually keep my horses in my orchard. It took them about 4 years of being in there to realize if they lift their heads there are apples to be eaten. They don't usually take too many, but I have it set up so I can move them out of there if need be. This talk of "thinning" the...

    I do wildlife rehab and have released raccoons, skunks and opposums on my property. If your coop is secure, you won't have to worry about all of these things. The only problem I have is the fox when he comes during the day.

    how to incubate and hatch call duck eggs

    I've gotten to the point of just letting my ducks hatch their eggs. I have a brinsea incubator and a sportsman and I only get about a 50% hatch rate. The ducks do much better.

    HELP !! 8 day old chick with 2 broken wings???!

    I would bring 2 of the chicks in so this one has company and if it passes the other 2 will be fine with each other if mom won't take them back. I would wrap her with vet wrap. I don't think the wing that bends the wrong way will ever heal correctly though.

    I also had a silkie hatch out two Dutch bantams last month. Good thing I have a heated room in my shed just for my Dutch or she'd be in my house with them.

    The new year is starting out pretty good. I found a wonderful home for one of my roosters yesterday. Only 8 more to go. Lol. I wish the poultry processor was open this time of year.

    I've been working on creating some mauve laced chickens. They're turning out very nice . .

    We are, once again, trying to get a chicken ordinance in Amery. We are designing a brochure to submit to the city council. But we don't have a nice coop to add. It's so gross out right now I can't get a good one. Anyone have a picture of a coop less than 64 sq feet with at least one window...

    Red squirrels are my favorite! They are so fun to raise. I didn't rehab any last year, just gray (black) squirrels.

    I have one 18 yr old cat that can't jump anymore so she has to use her claws to climb up on things. She ruined our pleather counter height stools that were actually pretty expensive. She also pees on anything you leave on the laundry room floor. One 5 yr old male cat that just shreds the...

    Did I misspell living room? Well, my son watches movies in there with his girlfriend. . . . Hopefully they haven't made it into a loving room. I have 4 cats inside and they drive me crazy. I can't imagine 9. And 28 cockatiels? Lol. I need my husband to read these posts so he stops...
