    Is There a Movement to Make Deathlayers APA??

    I have recently been reading up on Deathlayers and am wondering why they are not APA. It seems they are historic, is it just cause they are a new import? Is there a movement in the U.S. to add them to the APA list? I know the Cream Legbar is a few years out from being added but is there even a...

    What is growing on my chickens face

    I wouldn't rule out mycoplasma. It's more common in turkeys but is in chickens too and cause nasal swelling sometimes. You can treat with Tylan 200, and get him tested. :)

    Help Taming Red Goldens!!

    I just got some Red Golden chicks a few months ago! :D They are growing so beautifully I can't wait for more and more color to show up! Unfortunately, they are batshit crazy. We had a mycoplasma scare two weeks in with the turkey's we bought at the same fair, but luckily the goldens were...

    Dying Ducklings

    He got them from Metzer. He says there were no signs whatever. He thinks it might liver disease or duck hepatitis, do you know anything about those? He gets his feed from a local farm.

    Welsh Harlequin or Silver Appleyard?

    So I recently got a duck advertized as a welsh harlequin drake :D, but he's a lot bigger than the female I have. When I looked it up it, it seems that the drakes for WH and SA look exactly alike?! How can you tell them apart? I can post pictures of mine later but I just want to learn the breed...

    Dying Ducklings

    I have a friend who just got 20 new ducklings. A few have been randomly dying and he has no idea what's happening :hit. Does anyone have any ideas? He's been giving them electrolyte water and is a very experienced poultry owner so I definitely don't think it's his care. Thanks so much for your...

    Review by '' on item 'Metzer Farms duckling hatching eggs'

    I got six ducks from them, two Rouens, two Khaki Campbells, and two Welsh Harlequins. They all arrived safe and grew up to be beautiful and amazing. My Welsh Harlequin just won Best of Show at the county fair :)

    How long until I get fertile eggs?

    I'm going to pick up a new drake on Wednesday! I'm so excited! :D I'm going to have to separate him for a few weeks but I'm pretty sure he's really healthy so I'll put him in with my girl soon. How long after they are put together can I begin collecting eggs that will be fertile? :confused: It's...

    Multi Purpose Bird House/Run

    Do you have any idea how much just a box would cost? I'd be putting in birds I wasn't afraid would escape. I'd just like an estimate, as I am comparing aviaries and really like this design :)

    Different Species With Pheasants

    I'm going to the Pennsylvania Aviculture Society Tailgate later this September! I am so excited to get involved and am looking to possibly get a few more birds! :D I'm wondering what species can live with pheasants that are perhaps lower to the ground or higher. Does that make any sense...

    Is Pressure Treated Wood Dangerous?

    I am working on building a night enclosure for my pheasants. I've run out of room in my barn so this enclosure has to be completely outdoors. The plans I have seem well ventilated but I'm unsure of the dangers of pressure treated wood. Will the chemicals be dangerous to my birds? What's the...

    DESPERATELY LOOKING FOR WELSH HARLEQUIN DRAKE

    I recently went to fair and won Best of Show with my Welsh Harlequin Duck. :D I want a show quality drake so bad to breed with her! I don't want a duckling, however, because it would take too long to grow and it might end up not fitting the standard. I am in Northern Va, practically on the...

    What breed of chicken is most likely to win at state fair poultry shows?

    It definitely has to do with the judge. The judge at my county fair almost always picked a waterfowl. I would definitely say it's easier to be all black than speckled. Complex color patterns are really hard to master. I have Speckled Sussex, and love them but it's so easy to get one with a...

    What is she/he?

    Since she has five toes she has to be crossed with a five-toed breed, likely a Faverole. :)
