    cull humanley and easily

    I'm a real wuss when it comes to dispatching animals too, fortunately DH is okay with it so he usually takes care of things. But I needed a backup method for when he's not around. For chicks, I punched a hole in a sour cream container and put the chick in, then used an unlit propane torch and...

    Rooster lost his voice

    I have a 2-3yr old SLW rooster who seems to have lost his voice recently. About two weeks after that happened he got into a spat with another rooster and he has been compulsively shaking his head since. I can't seem to see anything on his face that would be irritating him but I wonder if the...

    Why would a broody hen make herself ill?

    Sounds like she is one you need to take care of. Block off that nest box or try moving her to her own cage where she can have some peace and quiet and her own feed/water.

    Brinsea Octagon Opinions

    I'm looking to upgrade my incubators this year and would love to hear about anyone's opinions or experiences with the Brinsea Octagon bators! A friend has an R-Com Mini which does everything automatically and she has a 100% hatch rate. But it only holds 3 eggs. We need something bigger, but...

    Selling birds, WWYD in this situation

    I did ask about transportation ahead of time and specified that I did NOT have any boxes available that were large enough. I was assured that they would have a large cage that fit into their vehicle. I described in detail the size of the birds so they would be fully prepared. So it came as a bit...

    Selling birds, WWYD in this situation

    What would you do if someone drove several hours to buy some birds and planned to transport them in a very inappropriate way? i.e. too many birds to one cage, using plastic feed bags, too many hours without food/water...? These are breeder birds so as much as I'd like to make money off of them...

    The Imposible Happened!

    Best of luck with your hatching! I had a nasty temperature spike over 110 for at least a couple hours (heat wave, warmest room in the house etc.) and just about gave up. Just before I turned the bator off and threw the eggs out I thought I should have one last look at them to make sure and they...

    Splayed legs

    Is there anything I can do for the two quail I have with splayed legs? They both seem to have a problem with the right leg and one has curled toes on the left foot. I had excellent luck with putting a shoe on one of the others with curled toes, but not this one. They flop around and are eating...

    Turning issue

    I have to go away for a few days and leave my precious eggs with DH to watch and turn. I usually turn them 3-4x/day but he'll be lucky to remember once or at the most twice. If he forgets for a day or two, will that damage them? Will once a day be enough for 3 days?
