Is there a safe to mark chicks , I have a few eggs I am hatching for a friend with a bunch of other eggs and they are starting to hatch . Is there a safe way to mark her chicks like food coloring or something of that sort?
I need some advice, I think my silkie flock has mareks. I cant sell anyone who makes it because that would be so WRONG. But I really want to have a healthy flock. Could I hatch babies and vacinate them would they be ok? Or is my yard contaminated forever? I am at a loss as what to do. Do ducks...
My Muscovey all of a sudden cant walk......she doesnt seem to be in any kind of pain, there are no visable injuries. No swollen legs or anything. I am confused and unsure what to do. I dont believe there is anything toxic around that she got into so it is very unclear to me what could be wrong...
I got my first duck eggs today not 1 egg but 2 WOOHOO I have 3 girls and was shocked when I saw this "thing" in the coop and there were 2 eggs . I dont eat them but I wanted eggs so bad now I have to figure out who I am going to give them too!!!!
I have 3 female muscoveys they are about 8 months old and I have not gotten a single egg. They are out of the coop by 10 am and out till about 7 pm . I feed them layer feed. They are healthy and happy but dang they are slackers is there any reason why they arent laying?
