    Using Diatomaceous Earth?

    If you search eye worm you will find several posts about it. For my chicken it was a swollen whitish lump inside her eye socket. I guess an eye worm will take residence in a chicken's tear duct. This is a very short, and possible inaccurate description, but that was our experience. I posted...

    Using Diatomaceous Earth?

    Just as an interesting note. I had a chicken come down with an eye worm. I use DE in the coop and nests and food, but had forgotten to mix it with the last couple bags of feed. Well, I read on here that they used DE to get rid of an eye worm. So I thought I would try it. I dusted her, her...

    Do you have more problems with feathered leg or crested chickens?

    Back to the original question of brahmas or polish I would definitely say get the brahmas. Polish tend to be very timid and tend to get picked on by the other chickens (literally). They also seem to be weaker in general. More prone to disease. I started out with several. I had one die, got...

    Intergrating 4wk olds with 6wk olds

    At that age you shouldn't have too many problems. A little pecking is expected. Just keep on eye on them and make sure the little do have some access to the food and water. Also make sure they have enough space so the little ones have space to get away if needed. If that doesn't work put 2...

    weird opened mouth gagging or swallowing

    I saw this at the end of the day with several of mine. I'm still torn if they are trying to finish swollowing the green weeds and grass from the day or a simplier answer is that they are yawning...

    Question Concerning Production Reds

    Production reds from my understanding are not sex-links. The are a hybrid for great egg production but not sexlinks. Red Stars or Red sexlinks close to the same, but are obviously sexlinks. You probably just fall in the 10% error rate with the roo.
