    How should I provide ventilation in our new DYI incubator?

    Nice job. Can't see why it shouldn't work. Ventilation is probably just a guessing game. So keep us posted on what works. I haven't found anything on how to calculate a fresh air exchange rate. I'm thinking of building me a new one out of wood as well. But going to try and keep it a bit bigger...

    Welsh Harlequin

    They all look like sliver to me. Notice the blue on their wings. Also they are still quite young. I noticed their legs are not right yet either. But that could be the lighting. Drake legs should be turning orange. And ducks should be dark gray. Again give them time they will turn into some...

    Cochin Thread!!!

    My wife saw this fuzzy little yellow and blue chick in Atwood about 3 months ago. I was going to give the little guy time to mature some before finding out the breed. Best I can tell it's a cochin but not sure if it's a self blue or a lighter color standard "blue" cochin. He seems to be to...

    Just about all goat hoofs are done the same way. I don't try to over do it if it's the first time. Just get them as even as you can without any voids to trap dirt in. I get my shears at TCS for about 10 bucks I'm thinking. Had them for over 2 years now. You'll see a pic of them in the link...

    D'uccle Thread

    I got this chick few weeks ago at Atwood. And live just outside of Waco TX so I'm sure these chick's came from Ideal just down the road. And I'm almost sure that it's a self blue d'Uccle. Just hoping you guy can confirm my guess. Also after seeing pairs_r post above I have some concerns. But not...

    what type of tree is this?

    I've never seen flowers or fruit of any kind on these trees. Must be something else unless there's a fruitless flower less strands
