    Setting for the @ coding

    When I joined BYC, was still on dial up speed so I had every options turned off- avatar, sigs etc as those really bogged down download time. Have broadband now.. but apparently there is a new code for tagging people using the "@" I'm guessing it notifies the tagged user, right? Tried going...

    Ova Easy vs GQF Sportsman

    I'm looking to get a cabinet type incubator. Ova-Easy and GQF Sportsman keep coming up as top choices. There is a fair price difference between them though. So I'm wondering if the Ova is really worth the extra or should I go with Sportsman as it should work pretty well? Also would like...

    Feed containers for mother hens with chicks?

    Hi- not sure if this goes here or into the Feeding/Watering section but here goes: I've had to start using chick starter mash instead of gamebird crumbles due to the price constantly climbing up..... I'm discovering some mother hens are MESSY with the mash by "treasure hunting"- digging out...

    Muscovies with carnculations going down the neck

    I always had loved muscovies. The best personality of all ducks. Well one time I went someplace for peafowl, this lady had one muscovy with the red skin and carncules going all the way down his neck! He was SO COOL....... Double cool-ness of the regular muscovies. He also had larger bare...

    Mealworms from reptile store- safe for chicks?

    Are they supposed to be 'clean'- no salmonella or cooties that could infect chicks? There's a local store that deals only with reptiles and they get feeder animals in bulk every week(I think). I have no interest/can't raise my own mealworms.... but would like to try giving mealworms to...

    Incubating with allergies?

    I have a bad allergy to chick/bird dander. I used to have a GQF Sportsman but eventually was forced to sell it due to becoming very sick during and after hatches. Having it in a second bedroom with the door always closed did not help at all. There's no way I can construct an outdoor...

    Cats- egg predator?

    Do cats break and eat chicken eggs? Something has been very stubborn about digging under pens to eat eggs.. I have been laying down wire but want to catch this critter(probably skunk) first before doing the whole perimeter. This evening I set a Havahart trap baited with two eggs and some...

    Nipple cup drinker system without using a pressure regulator?

    I've just started using nipples installed under a 5 gal bucket. Big fan of it now. I really would like to try out the cup drinkers for peafowl as it seems peafowl and turkeys are not really able to use the nipples. So far everything I see for them use pressure regulators, have not see any...
