    Feeding pigeons

    I haven't found anywhere that sells pigeon food. I only have a pair. I feed my ducks and chickens gamebird grower, scratch, and whole oats. Could I pick up some split peas and lentils and mix it with what the other birds get and provide a decent diet for them? What percentage protein should I...

    New pigeons

    After having ducks, geese, turkeys, and chickens I figured pigeons were the next logical step. So I picked up this pair (most likely 2 girls or 2 boys knowing me) at a swap today. They are inside, since their pen isn't quite all the way done yet, oops. The cage they are in is 2' x 3' x 4' or...

    What color are my turkeys?

    This is my tom and hen. They are blue slate mixes . What color would they be considered, and do you think their babies will look like them? They are about 4 months old or so, hatched at Easter. Just for fun, this is the little guy about 3 months ago. And after hatching.

    Feather sexing question

    All my chicks are fully feathered except ugly duckling here. Does that mean he carries the slow feathering gene? If I keep him and pair him with my girls who feathered in quick will the chicks be feather sexable? Really don't want another roo, but if I can get sexable chicks I might just keep him.

    How do I find a processor?

    Hi. I'm in the Kansas City area. I have a drake I'd like to take to be processed. How do I find a processor, and will they just take one bird? I don't want to do it myself. I've done chickens and I hate plucking them, I won't even try with a duck.
