    How young is too young to go into gen-pop?

    Hey friends, Of my last hatch only 2 chicks servived. They are about 4 weeks old, they have a lot of their feathers, mostly just fluff on their faces now. I am about to go away for a few days and it would be a lot easier on the person coming in to look after my animals if these little guys...

    Stuck chicks

    Thank you! I’ll aim for mid 30s next time. I’d rather have nice healthy chicks that can zip themselves. I really don’t like assisting, but I wanted to get as many chicks as possible from this hatch. The assisted ones always seem to have curled toes or splayed legs I find.

    Stuck chicks

    Thanks for your insight :) I had one more hatch on her own sometime today. I opened the rest up to check for life and the rest seemed to have quit earlier or never got started. The eggs were shipped so I wasn’t expecting too much. I’ll experiment dry for the next one and see how I do.

    Stuck chicks

    Long time since posting! Missed you guys! My first set of quail chicks this year have begun hatching today. So far 2 have hatched on their own, and 2 assisted, and one I was too slow to assist. They get a pip hole and then get stuck. I’m not sure why the membranes always get dried out and...

    Yes! I’m not sure how it would go if there were a lot of bigs in with the littles but with one big they are quite happy. Probably helps that it’s a hen as well.

    Mine have a nice bright light now so they get about 14h a day between the sun and the lamp. But they are still moulting and it’s gotten cooler. I’ve got 2 adult Roos in there now and they aren’t bickering, and I’ve seen no mating lately. I can’t bring them in, hubby is annoyed enough that the...

    Sorry if I’m being harsh, I don’t mean it to be. My friend is going through rough drama and money things with her brother so I’m used to watching this sort of thing. She finally put her foot down and set her boundaries. It was super hard for her but ultimately it made her life less stressful by...

    You were helping short term, but you are enabling her lifestyle by bailing her out on a regular basis. Some people need to learn the hard way, as hard as it is to watch.

    Agreed, too nice lol. You’re being used Kdogg. Whether this person is consciously using you or not is besides the point. Keep meaningful relationships, and get rid of toxic people. Helping out friends is fine, but you need to learn the difference. <3

    Yeah it takes a while and a lot of lost time and money sometimes. But get rid of the toxic! You made the right call.

    How long does moulting take? I need eggs to feed my incubating addiction. It’s been WEEKS!
