    Easter Chicken E-card?

    Does anyone have a link to the easter e-card that had a chicken laying/throwing an egg on the screen and saying something along the lines of "the battle is on" or something? I think it had a purple background? Sorry, I'm terrible at trying to explain things. Someone sent it to me awhile back...

    How cold hardy are Guineas?

    I would like to get a few Guineas, but I'm not entirely sure if they can handle our Manitoban winters. We frequently get temps below -15F (air temp, not counting any windchill) for weeks on end during January and February, sometimes even colder. They would be kept in a shed thats sheltered from...

    Are there any commercial pilots out there? Or others involved in the aviation world?

    I am considering becoming a commercial pilot after highschool. I've loved flying my entire life and its something I would really like to do. I have a few questions about how to go about doing that. There aren't very many aviation/flight colleges in Canada, the closest one to me is the University...

    Is there a way to tell Pilgrim and Toulouse goslings apart?

    I have a two Pilgrim females and one Toulouse female with a Pilgrim male. I'm in the process of selling the Toulouse female, but so far her buyer hasn't picked her up. In the meantime, they have been laying quite a few eggs. I have a bunch in the incubator, but will I be able to tell which ones...

    At what age do ganders start breeding?

    I have a quad of Pilgrims, 2 of the females are mature, the other will be a year old in April. I'm not sure how old the gander is, he might be older, but he might just be a year old this spring. I'm not sure. Do you think the gander will breed the mature females this spring if he's only a year old?

    How many square feet per chicken in the coop?

    I know the general rule is about 4, but what if they free-range all day? My birds only use the coop for sleeping and I can provide roosts for all of them, even if they only have about maybe 2-3 square feet each inside. Would that work for layers or am I setting myself up for disaster? I also...

    How to use Ivomec Eprinex?

    I think a few of my birds have worms, and even if they don't it wouldn't hurt to worm them. I've been doing some reading and read that if you have a heavy infestation you should start with something like piperazine because it isn't as strong. About a week later you start with the Ivomec Eprinex...

    What causes a rooster to have runny poop?

    I recently got a Cuckoo Maran rooster, he's about a year old. The lady I got him from said that she occasionally needed to clean around his vent because his poops were very runny and it would sometimes get caught in his feathers. The other night I noticed him standing funny so I checked his vent...

    Sweet revenge

    For the past 3-4 weeks I've had an egg eater (or two). I used to get about a dozen eggs a day, but for the past few weeks I've got about one or two. Since I'm at school all day, I haven't ever been about to catch the eater, I just get home to a goopy mess in the next boxes and a bunch of birds...

    Keeping Meat Birds past their date

    I've seen some people say that they have done this successfully so I decided to try it for myself. I selected the smallest bird from my group of 25, restricted its feed so much that it only got about 1/2 the size of its brothers and sisters. It is now about 5 months old and is suffering from leg...

    Do they make these? Where can I find some? My duck eggs are too big to fit in ordinary cartons.

    Rescued some Leghorns last night (graphic pic)

    I don't know if you'd call it "rescued" but I'm sure glad they aren't in their old home anymore. A few days ago I responded to a kijiji add for some White Leghorn laying hens, needing a few more layers I responded and asking if they had any left. Surprisingly they did (the ad was about 1-2...
