    Newbie with startup questions

    Hi there! I've been a chicken keeper for 7 years and am ready to move onto more exciting things. I'm interested in breeding French Copper Marans, Ameraucanas, (and Olive Eggers). I need information about housing these chickens. Do most people keep them in separate pens by breed? How many...

    Do I need to use all racks in the egg turner?

    Aha! That did the trick. I guess it is important to put all of the racks in the turner because now it turns both ways.

    Do I need to use all racks in the egg turner?

    I just put the other racks in and it does seem more sturdy. I have a feeling it will turn both ways now.

    Do I need to use all racks in the egg turner?

    I wonder if it would turn both ways if I put all of the racks in it. I can't get through to the manufacturer. GQF

    Do I need to use all racks in the egg turner?

    It makes a clicking sound. I don't remember it doing that before, but I've usually kept it in the garage. It's been so cold this year that I'm using it in the hallway this time. So, even if it's not turning right it will be OK?

    Do I need to use all racks in the egg turner?

    I've had the turner for about three years now. I use it once or twice a year.

    Do I need to use all racks in the egg turner?

    These are VERY expensive eggs so I would like to know for sure now. Is it a problem that the turner is only going left and straight? I have not seen it go right.

    Do I need to use all racks in the egg turner?

    I'm incubation chicken eggs and I'm on day 4. I had only put two racks in the egg turner all the way to the left. I see the egg turner turning to the left and then straight, but haven't seen it turned right. Is this right? Should I have used all of the racks in the turner? Did I mess...

    Chick with bulging eyes

    I just received some chicks today and one has slight splayed leg that I'm not too concerned with, because she can still stand and I'm betting it will straighten out on it's own. But both of her eyes are bulging out and are gray and cloudy. She doesn't seem to be able to see and she keeps...

    Coturnix Quail questions about housing and house mates

    I currently have been hatching and releasing Bobwhite quail for 3 years now. I have a large flight pen that I keep the adults in (have 12). I'm thinking of getting Coturnix quail and have read that most people keep them off the ground in cages with wire bottoms. My Bobwhites live in a...
