    introducing bantam pullets to my full size hens.

    My Old english game bantamss are 7 weeks old, even though they are a 1/4 the size of my Rhode islands I think it's time they joined the main flock. In the past I've snuck the birds out at night and set them on the perch with the other girls and it seemed to work. I'm nervous due to the huge size...

    Day old American Game Birds in the same Broder with older birds?

    Last Tuesday I got my first set of birds and the American Game bantams arrive at the feed store tomorrow. Is 1.5 weeks to big of an age difference to house bantams and regular chicks?

    Giving chickens 24/7 access to a run?

    Last year I built a duck house but now we are getting chickens to live in it. It's pretty much the same as a chicken house except I'll need to add a perch and the ducks food and water was kept in a super secure outside run so they wouldn't mess there house up as they are very messy drinkers.

    All of the sudden lots of feathers in the duck house?

    Yesterday my wife mentioned that there was lots of loose feathers in the ducks house. I didn't really think much of it until I went out today. The whole floor is capetered in feathers!

    How do we treat CRD?

    My oldest duck Samson was the only duck to survive out of a shipment of 10. He seemed to be doing fine but is now showing signs of CRD. For a while he was coughing but that stopped. Now he is the smallest by far even though he is the oldest and his feathers are all ratty and thin. What should I do?
