I have a hen who broke her leg two weeks ago. I made her up a splint and separated her for a week, then let her back in with the others when she could walk. Yesterday I Took her splint off, and while fluffing her thigh feathers, I saw a flash of green. I looked further and it was This green/this...

Here is how it goes-
a few weeks ago, i think two weeks back, i have it written down but i don't feel like running downstairs right now, i bred my doe, Angel. I bred her bc she was pulling fur and apparently she 'wanted' to be bred. well you see, we have an escaped buck that could have bred her...

Been real stressed this week. Sunday night came home and 20 chicks were gone. Been dealing with cocci in the coop. Goats have lice, one is week. Doing everything we can to kill the lice. Trying to figure out what killed chicks... *sigh*
They got let out at 3:00 pm when we got back from church, then we left again at 6:00pm. While on our way out, we caught a glimpse of a hawk, we think it was carrying a chick, something white and fluffy. :(
Got back at dark tonight, chickens had put themselves away, but i noticed that most of the...
Our dear kids (baby goats) Have LICE!!! Poor molly has them on every SINGLE INCH OF HER BODY!!!! (well, pretty close to it)
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP!! what can we give them? Anything, chemicals, all natural, something that will act quick, she is very lethargic. Thanks :)
Goodness, i hope i have this in the right section.. anyways-
We have this rooster, he is nice to us, never tried to attack us, but to the hens i think he overbreeds them. Fluffy was pulled out of the coop (just in time to save her life!!) bc she had a bloodied up head. which was bc the rooster...
We need to get better meat breeds. Black sex and cornish cross are NOT what we are looking for. Black sex grows to slowly, and cornish to quickly, plus they look unhealthy. What about Buff orpingtons? Are they good?
We are going to get some guineas soon, but we don't know how to care for them.
A few questions:
can they stay with chickens at night?
do they fly?
how far do they go?
are they easy to train to come in at night?
What do they eat?
Give me all the info you can give on these things!!

I have been waiting so long for this day, but my dad kept saying he needed to build other things, then today he decided the other things were going to take a while so he said lets build it!!! This afternoon once we clean out our barn, which will just take a second, we got a trash can delivered...
I went to let out my girls this morning, and there were two dead chicks laying there. They were squished by the others, now here i was thinking they were safe at this age from getting squished. It didn't even get that cold last night.
One of my americana and my precious Milles fleur were...
