    Black Jersey Giants

    Thanks. That’s what I was looking at too. That and comb size. They all look like they are getting waddles but some are pale orange and some are more red. I couldn’t always get them to look up to give me a good look under their chins, but I think I’ve got 4 roosters. Just trying to figure out as...

    Black Jersey Giants

    Hatched out these Black Jersey Giants 4 weeks ago tomorrow. Any idea which are cockerels and which are pullets? If you answer, please let me know why you think so. Thanks!

    Against the odds hatching thread (with pictures and questions)

    Don’t worry too much about the time from lay to set. In February, I set 8 eggs that were hatched between 2/9 and 2/16. I set them on the 16th. 1 stopped developing around day 10. It was not the oldest egg. It was one that was laid on 2/15. The other 7 all hatched over a 24 hour period of time on...

    Lavendar Orpington Runt - Please Help

    I did! There’s no replacing Jem but when I sent a pic of Jem and her regular sized counterpart to the hatchery several days ago asking for advice, they offered me another lavendar orpington. I took them up on it because I needed to move her brooder mates out (too big) and wanted her to have...

    Lavendar Orpington Runt - Please Help

    I just put it in her water. I was afraid she might aspirate it if I put it her beak. Thanks for your response!

    Hello from Nebraska

    So exciting! Our first jersey giants are almost 4 weeks old. We hatched them ourselves. Holding my breath to see what we’ve got. So far Im guessing 4 Roos and 3 hens. I’d rather more hens, but we’ll see! Be sure to post more pics as they hatch!

    Lavendar Orpington Runt - Please Help

    I’m wondering if there’s anything more I can do for my tiny runt, Jem. She hatched 3/5 and was smaller from the others to start but I thought she would catch up. She hasn’t. This picture shows her next to a day old hatchling. Jem has her back to us. She seems to be breathing hard, almost like...

    Please help! Lockdown tonight!

    All of the remaining 7 hatched! First hatched at about 7:30 Sunday morning and the last one hatched between 11pm and 3am while I was asleep. One ended up hatching out the side of the egg. He pipped in the right place but his foot was over the top of his head and came out first. He struggled but...
