    How long for heat lamps with cornish rocks?

    Obviously they will have to be on a heat lamp at the beginning in the brooder-but hope to get them out on my finished garden in electronetting with a chicken tractor...just wondering-since their lifespan is 6-8 weeks, how long the 'brooder phase' would last. I guess we will just have to see...

    Do certain people not get posts answered around here-meat chicks quest

    I am wondering if people just don't answer certain people around here. I've posted multiple times with NO response. So-does anyone know how long to leave broiler chicks under the heat lamp-SINCE they GROW FASTER! Don't mean to be rude, but COMPLETEly feel IGNORED!

    Cats as chicken killers?

    This was at like noon-in broad daylight, a skunk or coon? Really? I thought they were nocturnal predators, as well as weasels and foxes.

    Cats as chicken killers?

    I have a few cats, one of which is a newer addition to our farm/family. He is on the feral side, but sort of friendly. We kind of saved him from sure death this winter. Anyway-we had a chicken left headless in our barnyard this morning (after coming out of the coop) and in broad daylight...

    FEATHER LOSS-severe-NEED INFO ON WHAT TO DO ASAP

    So my chickens all have feather loss, some worse than others, and it is not molting. I have only one rooster to 12 hens...so that should be the problem. I have checked them over for lice-don't see any. I guess it could be mites...what do I do? I have heard of the roost mites, so I am going...

    When to let hen with chicks back in with the rest?

    I have a hen who was broody and hatched three chicks. The chicks are about two weeks old now and she is in our chicken tractor with them. Any ideas???? I don't want to do it too soon, but if it would be better now, I would go ahead and do it. She is VEEERRYYY protective of them. We have a 6...

    What breed #2!

    I would be truly guessing on all-except for #2....I REALLY think it is a New Hampshire Red. It looks exactly like the three I had as 1-3 day old chicks....

    New Hampshire Reds....pullets or roos?

    Oooo...I have three New Hampshire reds too...I have speculated that one is a rooster for a while....the other two have had a little bit slower comb growth but their combs are not as big as yours-maybe you have pullets? Can you post pics of them standing??

    Broody BA - moving chicks under cover of night

    Quote: HEY-that is good information! My broody just hatched (only 3-my fault mostly) adorable little chicks but I felt the need to remove her from the rest after they hatched....so it really ISN'T necessary?? I thought if there was a hatching during the night the other chicks would eat them...

    stripes on baby australorps?

    I posted something about this the other day as well. I have 10 BA chicks that are about 5 weeks old and a few of the pullets have lacing on the chest. Someone on here said it is a phase of feathering...it should change and be all black-if indeed they are BAs...

    Looking for a flock guardian

    I'm interested in this as well-especially which type of dog would go best with chickens. I also have goats that I would like protected. They are Nigerian Dwarf goats so a larger predator could get them I suppose.
