    Can us people buy uk eggs & just have them shipped?

    You'll need to check with customs but I think eggs are ok, live birds may need to be quarantined for awhile.

    Tips on getting Game Wardens on the ball?

    Quote: There are 2 reasons for the coyote attacks...New Jersey and New York. Restrictive hunting and gun laws = problems with animals. Coyotes will attack people under certain circumstances: 1. rabid 2. starving 3. backed into a corner with no escape route

    Tips on getting Game Wardens on the ball?

    You might want to point out to the GW that when coyotes attack people and to some extent horses then there is something wrong, either they are rabid or are extremely starving. I grew up hunting and trapping coyotes and that is not natural behavior for them. Have you considered buying some traps...

    Valley, gambel,or blue scaled quails

    You need to wait until spring when they start laying, if you get any eggs right now they probably won't hatch very well.

    They're all gone now

    Sorry about your birds, misery loves company and unfortunately some people have too much time on their hands and not enough pleasure in their life so they look to make others miserable so as to somehow relieve their own pain. I say call the city regarding the setback because she obviously wants...

    I have some styptic (sic) powder to stop bleeding, also I have no-pick (nasty purple goo). I would also add a syringe for feeding electrolytes.

    Irresponsible Neighbor

    I agree with talking to the neighbor and calling DFG. Most city slickers don't realize that by feeding bears they are dooming them to termination. Bears that become accustomed to getting food from people have to be destroyed by DFG or AC. They might try and relocate them once but usually not.

    Anyone ever have problems in Santa Ana, CA?

    Quote: Usually the 100' or other long distances are for the city to say they "allow" chickens but in effect outlaw them.

    Two legged predator !!! how to stop the person...

    I would call the police and file a report and also let them know that there are squatters in that barn that are growing and selling drugs. The idea of waiting in the coop with a shotgun sounds good. I had some local gang bangers try to break into my car one night and after I came out of the...

    Hay. How old is to old?

    Quote: Sounds like good advice, if it isn't moldy and musty smelling then is is ok to use. Hay should ideally be used within a year of cutting but only because it will lose nutrients over time. If it looks smells ok then it is fine to use.

    Ignorant about Quail, Why do people have them, hunting?

    I have several different species and types of quail. They are just for fun, I like the variety. I have coturnix, bobwhite, blue scale, african harlequin and gambels. The coturnix are pretty friendly and it can be soothing to go sit out in their aviary and just watch them. Also, there are several...
