    Cream Legbar Pictures

    I just got two cream legbar pullets. They have such a nice coloration and are just getting their crests growing. I'll try to post photos tomorrow.

    Ameraucana thread for posting pictures and discussing our birds

    Oh, my....I meant that as a joke. Sorry. I know it isn't a SF as it doesn't have feathered legs and an extra toe. The coloring makes it similar, though. See what I mean? Sorry, I didn't mean to be rude.

    In my area the predators would be over that fence in a heartbeat. Hope your area is better.

    Is my chicken run now 100% predator proof?

    I thought my three coops were predator proof. I have had no successful attacks for three years.....until yesterday. I went out and saw dead pullets in one of my coops. My coops and runs are fully enclosed and plugged what may have been a place the raccoon might have forced their way in. Today...

    skin pecked off back of head and neck

    I would be worried about those eyes. Chickens have a BAD habit of pecking eyes out, when they are doing this. Be prepared for doing the right thing if this is the case. Otherwise, keep the chick seperate, warm and the wounds clean.

    North Carolina

    Newhomesteader, I just learned a HARD lesson about putting cut grass in my run for the birds. They loved it when I cut grass and put it in there for them to eat. The problem is, they ate too much and the grass pieces were too long. When they "graze" they take little bites, for the most part. The...

    She hasn't laid an egg in over a year and now this?

    Hey she's just a smart (lazy) bird. She knows that little fart egg is a whole lot easier to lay that a big ole honker!!!

    Polish Picked On?

    I have a pretty gold laced polish. They have done well together for a good while. This year, she lost her tophat completely....she was BALD! No blood, just bald. She stayed that way most of the fall. During her winter molt, it grew back and I have not seen any sign of it being pecked....yet...

    Relatively new chicken attacked by dog - help!

    You can always try crop feeding her as a last resort. I make a mixture of live culture and pedialyte (electrolytes) and suck it up into a 3-5 cc syringe. I open the mouth and put the syringe deep into the throat. It is important that you go below the area near the base of the tongue. That is...

    Lavender Ameraucana Breeders .... UNITE

    I spoke with the breeder about this and she ASSURES me they are purebred Ameraucanas. She told me a number of her small flock have been shown and several have won "best in breed" at shows. I was wanting blues, which she said she had. When I arrived, there were none that I considered blue. She...

    Cochin Thread!!!

    That's OK. I'm not into breeding (no roos) or showing. I was just wondering. I got it from an OLD-time breeder who has many different breeds. Just curious. Is it stance....color...leg feathering....? What makes it lessor quality? I am wanting to learn something about the breed using this...
