I've got a LONELY chick and it needs a couple of buddies. I will be attending the Sunshine Poultry Classic in Lake City on January 5th.
Will anyone be bringing chicks that are 0 to 10 days old TODAY, December 27?
That means that I am looking for chicks 1 - 3 weeks old on January 5
I have a chicken with an eye issue. It is not a disease. I think it is the result of an eye injury.
I have had her in isolation and on oral antibiotics (Erythromycin) for a week.
I have been applying terramycin ointment 2 x a day to her eye.
I am not seeing any change in her status.
I have just discovered the joys of hot tea.
Previously, my only experience with hot tea was in Chinese Restruants.

Now, I am hooked... I have checked out tea reviews and started...
The last few times that I have tried to upload photos to BYC, the web site has locked up on me.

I have an older model 1588 Genesis Hovabator. I need to lower the factory setting temps slightly.
I've printed the pdf file from GQF MFG and have tried for 2 days to adjust the temps. I am ready to SCREAM.

I toggled all switches...
I started couponing about 6 months ago. Since then, I have ran into resistance with my friends. Some declare that the 1/2 price sales at Publix or Winn Dixie are good enough for them. I have converted a few folks. They see the work that goes into couponing, but are more impressed when I...

I have a hen that went broody at the same time I was filling my incubator with hatching eggs.
She hatched 5 chicks and my incubator hatched 19 chicks.
The chicks are now 3 weeks old.....

My daughter is a crafty soul. She has requested some peacock eyes for her next project. Being the SUPER Mom that I am, I am on a mission to fulfill her request. I love my daughter dearly, but I have my limits. NO WAY am I adding pea fowl to my collection of birds..
So, those living in...
A couple of weeks ago I had a really good hatch of buff leghorn chicks. They were shipped eggs and the chicks are my first experience with Buff's.
Within the first week, I noticed that about 1/2 are exhibiting darker colors in the emerging wing feathers. The other half of the hatch are...
I have a couple of pot belly pigs that I usually worm twice a year.
I was wondering if it is OK to worm pot belly pigs with Valbrazen. I currently worm with a horse paste that the pigs hate the taste of. I would like to try the Valbrazen out on them if it is safe for them.

The beak looks more like the top and bottom...

What would happen if I crossed a delaware hen with very little markings to a speckled sussex roo ? ?
