    How to let a broody hen hatch eggs

    Thank you so much! She picked the ground nesting box so she is good. I've been kicking her out once a day to try to get her to eat.

    How to let a broody hen hatch eggs

    There is a lip on the nesting boxes, so i don't think she can roll any out. How often would you suggest candling them?

    How to let a broody hen hatch eggs

    I have 3 broody bantams that I've been unable to break, so I'm getting some hatching eggs to put under them. How do I go about doing it? Do i need to do anything, or just put the eggs under them and forget about it? Do i need to candle at all or anything else? I've never hatched eggs before...

    Ayam Cemani or Plymouth Rock?

    I have a camera in the coop. it wasn't in there yesterday because it was charging, but it was this morning, so i saw the cemani leave the nest and went right out. The egg was in the very corner of the nest, so possible she moved it? She was in the nest for a while

    Letting broody hatch

    She is definitely broody, but I've been trying to break her. It's been about 2 weeks. I have talen her out of the nest multiple times a day and put her on the roosts at night. She does always come out when i take their treats out. I tried a cold bath, but didn't help. She only started laying...

    Rooster or mites?

    A couple of my hens have this weird patchyness on the back/top of their heads. It seems a little crust so I can't tell if it might be mights or just from the rooster. Only the top of their heads seem affected and I don't see it on anyone else

    Butchered Roosters

    We butchered some roosters last week, and I'm wondering how long they will be good refrigerated. My husband comes home from work next Thursday and I'd like to cook them that day. This will be our first time eating something we raised.

    Update on cat attack chick!

    My chick that was attacked by my cat yesterday seems to be pulling through. She isn't moving about much, but she is eating and drinking a little. Her wounds are a bit worse than I first could see, but they don't seem life threatening. I got some penicillin to prevent infection. Thank you...
