    To move..Or not to move? that is the question. (Broody Hen)

    My 2ish year old hen has decided to sit again this year. However, she has chosen a nesting box that is 1-2ft off the ground, and that the other hens like to use as well. Since she's lower in rank, I'm wondering if I should move her into my large brooder that I built last year for my ducks...

    What breeds are these?(Rabbits)

    These two little guys were abandoned here last month(ish). Originally there were 3 but one disappeared, so we assume some sort of predator got it. The silver seems to be "dominant" over the brown/orange one. I tossed them some bread and the orange waited for the silver to move off to another...

    How old does this horse look?

    I apologize for the not-great pics. This horse absolutely despises his mouth being messed with for some reason. Plus my camera decided to focus on the background and not the foreground... but from what you can see, how old does he look? Thanks:)

    Rabbits - need all the help i can get...

    Someone dropped off 3 rabbits at our neighbors house... Sadly, a raccoon got one so their are only 2. They aren't completely tame, but they do come within 10 feet of you. Neighbor would keep them and tame them but she is moving and cannot take them with her.. So I think I'll be taking them in...

    Looky what I [finally] caught!!

    Little bugger [and his mom] caught 2 of my ducks when they didn't go in the other day. Ever since they've been wandering around here eating scraps from the chickens, dropped grain,etc. All the horses and goats were absolutely terrified of him,even if they're ten times bigger

    Are these two eggs any good?

    My hens abandoned the last two eggs once 4 of the chicks hatched... so i made a home-made incubator and put them in there. I've been candling them and there's nothing obviously telling me that they're bad, but i wanted an expert opinion Also if you can tell what day they appear to be on that...

    What's wrong with his legs?

    In the last few weeks, I've noticed my rooster has been picking at his legs quite badly...So badly that he's been limping slightly. I'm thinking mites maybe? No other chickens have this issue..

    Help identifying Arabian mare *AHA datasource members needed*

    I have this posted on the arabian breeders website, but i figured it wouldn't hurt to post it here as well. I got a wonderful Arabian mare in December 2010, and have been trying to identify her since then. I traced her owners back to a woman named Kim [who, was not an owner, but someone who...

    Well, my hen's been sitting for awhile [10+ days] and today i noticed she'd pushed an egg out of the nest, i figured it was a bad egg but i still decided to take a look to make sure things were actually developing and she wasn't wasting her time there. See pics on pg 3!!
