    Hemp Bedding for Ducks?

    Hemp Bedding for Ducks?

    I use it and buy it from a local business here. It's great for chickens and I use it in my duckhouse for the ducks. It definitely helps with moisture. I'm planning to try it on the outside area, so we'll see. I get a large packed bundle for $22 and it lasts me forever, so I find it totally...

    Help! My duck has a leg deformity! What's wrong and what can I do??

    I'm wondering how Tiny Tim is doing? I have a duckling with what looks like an identical issue. I tried to move the tendon, but that doesn't seem to be it at all. Right now, it's adapting.

    So my husband and I have inherited a Jumbo Pekin we believe is male and he is huge. He was dumped at a local pond here and now lives in our backyard. We weren't sure what kind he was when we got him, but now that we know and we want to make sure we give him a quality life. We think he is about...

    Old English Game Bantam Chicks

    I'm trying to figure out what type of Old English Game Bantams these are. I'm thinking they're more of a mix in coloring and I'm pretty sure there's a barred mom or dad in there somewhere. I bought these without seeing the parents. Thoughts?

    This is my first jump into polish chicks and I bought these from someone, already hatched and they seemed to be different ages. I think I have 3 different ages here actually and I'm trying to see if there are any signs of gender. I would love some opinions. I have multiple pictures of each...

    Comment by 'pdholbrook' in article 'Lexington Kentucky Chicken Ordinance'

    This is very outdated. Here is the current information: https://www2.municode.com/library/ky/lexington-fayette_county/codes/code_of_ordinances?nodeId=COOR_CH4ANFO Roosters are allowed, it's the noise ordinance that is an issue.

    Maran 5 week old, girl or boy?

    The chick next to the maran is 2 weeks younger. She's a brahma/ameraucana mix. It would be nice if this was a pullet actually. I'll post an update in a couple of weeks.

    Maran 5 week old, girl or boy?

    I've assumed this is a boy because of how it is feathered. It hatched March 10th. I was noticing today though that the comb is very small, at best, and not remotely pink. Thoughts?

    Growing fodder for chickens

    I did not use oats initiallt. The day after I posted they did start to sprout, they are just appallingly slow. I have a 50lb bag, so I'm going to use them, I'm just going to have to refigure out the schedule
