    The Wilson Farm Thread~

    So a little about myself, I started my first flock with 19 broilers for an FFA contest. Worst Decision EVER. After the contest was over, my dad found a friend who was willing to trade me my first layer flock for the ugly broilers. I got 5 hens and a rooster they were a RIR/Production red mix + a...

    Turkeys, guineas, ducks, and chickens question

    Soo...Finge did a dumb. I recently found a turkey breeder who was giving me turkey eggs. I got 6 turkey eggs and a bonus of a dozen guinea eggs. The day AFTER I got them, the breeder asked if I also wanted ducklings, since her ducks were going broody, she could not give me eggs, but a promise of...

    Silkie x Production chicken question

    I've been thinking about this for a few hours, and i'm not sure if my thinking and thoughts of chicken genetics is correct. Long ago I was told that the production and egg size of a chicken depends on it's sire, I've forgotten what the Dam gave to the offspring. If this is true, then would an...

    Hatching guinea

    I'm wondering how to hatch guinea, as I plan on getting some this summer, and I'm still deciding whether to just buy some keets, or hatch them. Im asking here, because last time I googled how to hatch, I lost the entire clutch from humidity.

    What genders?

    Hmm, I bred these lil monsters, though the only mature chickens I have are rhode island red hens, rooster, and a polish. Im kinda hoping they are polish.

    What genders?

    Ah, im not really sure where I got the tail thing from. My last chicks, I could really tell at this age who were going to be cockerels, I haven't had any experience with rir chicks.

    What genders?

    I have I believe four 5 week old rir chicks. I asked on facebook, and got mixed responses. Some say all roo, some say half and half. Unnamed chick 1 (im guessing cockerel from the short tail and red comb) Unnamed chick 2 (also guessing cockerel for the same reasons.) Robin (guessing...

    Guinea talk.

    Hi, howp you don't mind if I hop in. I plan on getting some guinea keets this summer, when ill hopefully have an actual coop. I'm just wondering, from reading the first few pages on this thread, do keets imprint on humans?

    A few questions

    Lol, that might work for me then. Another question, what do I feed the keets? Do I feed them chick starter, non medicated?

    A few questions

    Okay, though I might wait until next year to start, since I have a smaller hog panel dividing my fowl from my dogs, which the chickens and guinea could probably use to escape.

    A few questions

    Thanks for the information! And yeah I fugred that I couldn't get them sexed while looking on the hatchery's wesbite. And if its not good to raise them with chickens, ill get my chickens in the spring, and my keets in June when the hatchery has them available. Hmm, as for the escaping thing I...
