    Welsh Harlequin + Welsh Harlequin = Khaki Campbell?

    I have 2 pair of Welsh Harlequin (hatchery quality) and incubated some of their eggs on my own (while my ducks are nesting over their own clutches). I was shocked when 8 ducklings looked like Welsh Harlequins and the 9th looks like a Khaki Campbell?! I know that Welsh Harlequins descended from...

    CAN"T WALK AFTER DIGGING

    I don't know exactly were to post this. Just a question, if anyone knows the answer. I have a ~15 wk EE pullet who I have noticed once she has spent more than 10-15 min digging/dust bathing, she is unable to stand up. It is though she is unable to straighten out the tibiotarsal articulation...

    Can't seem to get chickens to "get along"

    This seems to be my most difficult year of raising chickens (since starting in 2007); everything seems to be harder, new issues, new learning opportunities. On to my latest problem. I have 2 broods of chickens. One batch of 4 (white rock, brown leghorn, australorp and wyandotte) is ~18 wks...

I have 2 sets of chicks (one at 1.5wks and one at 7 wks - the older ones got medicated feed for about 2...

    I started my newest chicks on medicated feed for ~1wk, then switched to unmedicated with probiotics. I have 2 sets of chicks (one at 1.5wks and one at 7 wks - the older ones got medicated feed for about 2 wks). As the chicks are inside and their droppings fall down through wire mesh onto a...

    Second Opinion on Gender

    I purchased 4 "rainbow pullets" as more interested in gender (and most of the breeds were straight runs) and 1 brown leghorn pullet. All "feather sexed" as pullets initially - but unsure how accurate this is. All about 2 wks old. I am now starting to second guess myself and think I may have...
