    Baby quail brooder near baby chicken brooder

    Good evening everyone. I was curious if it would be ok to have fresh out of the bator chickens in a brooder very close if not right up against the brooder for month old bobwhite quail? The quail did not start on medicated starter, all seem to be doin great. The chickens will be started on...

    Bay Area BYCers!

    Thanks everyone for the replies about fertile eggs! Sorry I couldnt get back on to update but we did end up finding a couple dozen eggs on cl. Should be some olive eggers with marans and welsummers. Should be sweet! I can see we are going to be looking for eggs often. Hatching is a blast! xD

    Turkeys and Chickens together...

    I've kept turkeys together with chickens with no problem. They sleep with some of the younger chickens in a tall pen. We haven't let them range free with the chickens though. Too concerned thanksgiving dinner will fly away!

    My broody fed her chicks worms today

    Lol yea it really is funny watching mama show her babies around and teach them what chickens do in a day. I can't get over how fast they are to get after bugs an such. Our chickies are a week old come tommorrow and little savages! edited for spelling.

    does anyone vaccinate the chicks they hatch?

    Quote: x2 It might be too late to vaccinate for mareks but you can still vaccinate for newcastles. The vaccine is commonly administered in the water they drink.

    12 Crele Penedesenca

    Heya. I won't be able to bid on this dozen but I will want some in the near future. Do you plan on auctioning off more or could I get on a list preferably? Bad timing I'm afraid but I have a real intrest in working with this breed. 1588 is on order atm and my current broody just finished...

    Please remind me again that Mama knows best????

    Yea that's too funny. I came on to search about the same thing. The hen doesn't seem to want to sit much anymore for the chicks. Four of them have at least a day under their belt but one hatched this morning and she seems cold.

    Got sand? You should!

    It does help to have a dividing wall between the two ages for a couple weeks before putting them together if possible. This gives them a chance to get aquainted a bit before being put together. We have done that in the past for the new generations and turkeys as well and it works pretty well...
