    I want to encourage breeders to become N.P.I.P. certified.

    Boy, that was a very old post. Back then I had an actual business, and was shipping eggs all over the place, including Hawaii. NPIP, and then some, was necessary.

    Think it's too cold for your chickens? Think again...

    Please note that these do NOT work in the winter... the line may be heated but the water in the cup freezes, and the lever freezes with it. Unless you can find some way to heat the cup, too, I wound up just switching to heated dog water bowls in the winter.

    New Alaskan breeders coop - finally!!! (pics)

    Aw, thanks Aart. It was fun while it lasted... But work is taking me away from home a lot, so I couldn't carry on the way I wanted anyway. I miss my Orpies the most.., such beautiful serene babies... Sigh.

    New Alaskan breeders coop - finally!!! (pics)

    The flitching was purchased at Dave's Woodworking on K-Beach road in Soldotna/Kenai. If anyone is interested in buying the coop, it's on skids and is a 12x20' building. Unfortunately, my life has been tossed around a bit, and I had to give up all the critters...so it's just sitting empty now.

    Try hanging it on the outside of the coop, and see if that changes anything... last I knew, they worked ok. Can you find out what your ambient outdoor humidity is to check it against?

    Cocci... what it looks like, and what we did *Warning! poop-shots!*

    I've had several requests for permission to use my photos for other articles... By all means, any that I posted are available to use as needed with my blessings.

    All I can say is observe your birds. If they're running around and eating and drinking, they're fine. If they sit on the roost and refuse to budge, then they're probably cold. Don't spoil them, but let them acclimate naturally in your area. Down to 0F they have been known to sleep outside...

    Araucana thread anyone?

    I am holding my breath on my first hatch... I have pips!! I would love it if I could get some comments on the babies when I post pics. I have so much to learn, and have been reading here and soaking it all up like a sponge. Lanae, I just checked out your website, too, and am so in love with...

    Looking at some of the other auctions, they don't ship to Hawaii or Alaska. Hawaii I can see, because there is some serious import paperwork involved. But to AK, a simple flat rate box, USPS, works JUST FINE. Grrrrrrrrr.
