    pullet changing color??

    I don't know where to ask this, because I don't know what is causing it, genetics, diesease, or some feed or vitamin problem.

    weekly hatches??

    If my hens start to lay again, we hope to begin hatching eggs. How do you manage weekly hatches? Do we need a brooder for each weeks hatch, or at what age can we begin to intergrate them? I am not looking forward to having 8 brooders going. thanks. ......stan

    breeding different lines???

    I have read in several places that you should not cross different lines of birds. Can anyone tell me why? I would think that the added diversity would be a good thing if the two lines were of equal quality. I can understand if you have a very strong line with a large number of birds, and don't...

    Friends first egg

    I split a chick order with a friend of mine back in Feb. She got 3 eggs today, her first. She called her educated, lawyer husband to tell him. First thing he asked was "how can that be?, we don't have a rooster". I have heard the stories, but wasn't sure I believed them. This guy is a self...

    cleaning shipped eggs??

    We just received 3 dozen shipped eggs, and 11 were broken, some in each of the 3 cartons. My wife picked them up at the post office and gently wiped them. Is there any thing else we can do ?
