    Duck lost her voice

    Thanks for the reply Amiga, we have two young and up and coming drakes, but they are too young right now to do anything, lol. Though, my other pekin girl and her like to pretend breed all the time. I have checked her all over and haven't found anything out of the ordinary on her. She has a...

    Duck lost her voice

    I have a four year old cayuga duck, the past few days I have noticed that when she goes to quack not a sound comes out. She has been completely normal otherwise, eating, drinking, dabbling and doing ducky things. The only changes that I have noticed is the past two days she has not laid an egg...

    Broody Goose :)

    She has her nest in a dogloo inside a dog kennel that we set up for her. I figured if she hatches the goose eggs and leaves the muscovys I'll either finish them in the incubator or put them under a broody silkie. They are always wanting to sit on eggs around here and don't seem to care what it is.

    Broody Goose :)

    I am new to having a broody goose, I have silkies so I'm use to the broodiness. But this is my first broody goose! I noticed a few days ago my Pomeranian goose decided to set on some of her eggs. The only problem is I have no gander and I felt bad about her setting with no outcome. So I got a...

    The Legbar Thread!

    I just had an awesome hatch, went to bed last night with two chicks hatched and four pipped. Woke up this morning to six chicks! All eggs that went into lockdown hatched. One of my best hatches in a while! I ended up with 5 boys and 1 girl, not the greatest odds, but I'll take that one girl! I...

    Mixed breeds

    I am so excited about the three little chicks I just hatched out! I mixed my Cream Legbar Rooster with my TetraTint Hen and got three beautiful chicks! I'm hoping if they turn out female they will give me some nice green eggs to add to my layer flock. I also set some more of this mix, curious if...

    The Legbar Thread!

    So excited out of four Legbar mix eggs I set to test my roosters fertility, THREE hatched! I was really surprised by the variation of color that I got too. The mother is a TetraTint (Leghorn X RIR) and the rooster of course was my Cream Legbar. I ended up with one solid white chick, one brown...

    The Legbar Thread!

    Thank you for the link! It is amazing the amount of different shades eggs can come in for just blue/green alone. Where would I go about getting an egg color chart? I really want to see where my egg color is. I really wished I had kept the eggs that these two hatched out of to compare to. This...

    The Legbar Thread!

    My hen is finally laying! I am so glad that she is finally giving me some eggs, but a little disapointed about the color. She hatched out of a nice blue egg, but hers are more green then I was expecting. Here is a pic of two of her eggs I gathered today (got lucky today!), along side silkie and...

    The Legbar Thread!

    I took pics of my pair after they hatched, I love to keep a record of how they looked at hatch and fully matured. So here is my pair, how would you describe their coloring, based on the chick down.

    Cream Legbars

    I finally read through this whole thread now too! Trying to learn as much as I can about the Cream Legbars, for my pair. I did set a few Cream Legbar mixed eggs, just to make sure my rooster is doing his job, and because I am getting impatient for my hen to lay! These will be Cream Legbar X...

    The Legbar Thread!

    I actually won the eggs off of ebay, it was a lucky bid too. I somehow managed to only get them for 99 cents, plus shipping, no one else had bid on them. I was very nervous about setting such a small amount of eggs so I set some of my mixes along with them, just in case. I believe the seller was...

    The Legbar Thread!

    Thanks, I was thinking he was to light compared to pictures I've seen. And for the hen I think they are cream hackles, they look similar in color to the boys coloring. I am new to these guys so not completely sure. Her tail is carried pretty high normally, but not as bad as the pictures, she...
