I've got a LONELY chick and it needs a couple of buddies. I will be attending the Sunshine Poultry Classic in Lake City on January 5th.
Will anyone be bringing chicks that are 0 to 10 days old TODAY, December 27?
That means that I am looking for chicks 1 - 3 weeks old on January 5
The lighter, almost solid buff colored chicks tend to turn out to have the better color as opposed to the hatchery styled chipmunk faced chick.
I've worked with this breed for about 7 years now. My current stock is from Reichert and I have been working exclusively for over four years now...
I just tried something with my birds and it worked very well.
I squeezed out the paste dosage for 250 lbs and thinly spread it on a slice of bread. I was able to slice the bread into 25 pieces - 5 rows by 5 columns - making it about a 10 lb dosing per bird
Then I isolated each hen, one at a...
Not Eye worms... Switched to Tylan 50 and it cleared right up.
She has lost some vision in the eye, but the she can still see something out of the eye.
As soon as the eye healed, she went broody!
Since she was separated from the flock and being babied anyways, I figure what the heck.
I have a chicken with an eye issue. It is not a disease. I think it is the result of an eye injury.
I have had her in isolation and on oral antibiotics (Erythromycin) for a week.
I have been applying terramycin ointment 2 x a day to her eye.
I am not seeing any change in her status.
I am sorry that I haven't been around to give you a warm welcome.
This thread has been set up to help learn about the SOP when it comes to SS.
This was intended to be a learning thread, but a friendly learning thread.
We've kept the chit chat to a minimum on this thread so that anyone new can...
Still the best line that I have had so far.
I have not been very successful on hatching shipping eggs from the breeder.
I am thinking about a road trip in the Spring to go collect chicks from the source... I will make the decision after I see how my pairings / hatchings working out in a couple...
No pics on the SS progress since I haven't been able to do any hatching this year.
I've had some personal / family issues that have kept me too busy to do the things I love.
The first breeding pen is complete. The indoor brooder is 2/3's complete. I am working on a second breeding pen.
I will be doing this in the Fall. I have a really nice female...JUST ONE that I have been in love with for type and color.
I have three males to work with. It will be interesting to see if I can get anything to write home about.
I would of preferred it the other way around - 3 females and one...
It was kind of nice not to have any coupons in the paper today.
I need some time to get all the recent coupons filed.
It is just so hard to stay on top of it now that I am getting 4 newspapers a week.
Our local newspapers sale for $3 each on Sundays.
When my subscription came up for...
Dang Kuntrygirl, I wish I had been paying attention back when you posted this ad.
I used my Almay coupons on the eye make-up removers and they were great!
I am bumming tonight. I went to our local grocery store with the coupons I intended on using stapled to an envelope.
I got through check...
