    Hen With Swollen Wattles?

    I have this Buff Orp hen that has really swollen wattles. I just noticed it yesterday when I was putting her up for the night. They are very wide and tinted blue.

    Had to Give my Quail Away...

    As of now I only own four quail. A few days ago raccoons knocked the door off a cage and all of them but two were killed. I found one a few minutes ago. I've had coons and coyotes come almost every night and the neighbors don't like them at all. So I got rid of the quail and moved the chickens...

    Not This Time!

    I was setting on the deck and I heard birds fly everywhere, so I jumped up and ran to the quail pens. I saw two coons under the cage and one on top. I grabbed my bow and put a carbon shaft into the one on top and then I got one underneath the pen while he was running off. Does anyone know how...

    Why Tractor Supply Won't Carry Game Bird Starter

    First off, I personally don't believe a word of what this guy said, but here it goes... I walked in to buy some bedding and realized there was a new manager. I walked up to him and asked him why there was no pine shavings in the store. He told me they were in the back so I followed him there...

    Guess What???

    It is possible to get work done AND be on BYC at the same time! I just broke a lot of beans from the garden while reading on here. Just thought I'd share that it is possible for us to still be productive even though some of us spend hours on here.

    Something Got 12 of My Quail!

    I put 53 two week old coturnix in a dog carrier overnight. They were in a shed that could use more ventilation so we left the door cracked about an inch at the bottom.

    Well This Is Great...

    I have a hatch in process and we just lost power. My grandpa's old generator won't crank and I have 8 chicks out and more coming. We've had a lot of bad weather here lately and this hatch has already been through one power outage. Plus I have to clean up more trees. What is wrong with this weather?

    Hatching Question

    I set a lot of eggs and since I have been told to hatch upright I put them in one of my flats. I was wondering if they will hatch alright in it. And I use this little temp gun, it reads different than my walmart thermometer so I trust it, should I trust it or the other one? Thanks
