    Coccidiosis?

    We finally found a few chicks to keep my lone Brahma chick company (the guy the batch was hatched for didn’t want it because it ended up being splash); 4 2-3 week old buff Orpington chicks that are just a little younger than my Brahma, 3 of which look to be hens :fl. We brought them home, they...

    ➡ Quail hatch along

    I got in touch with the breeder and he thinks it should be somewhere between a silver and an Italian pansy, similar to this one... :love:fl

    ➡ Quail hatch along

    I tried to get a picture of the other one too, but he’s even squirmier, so that didn't work. I don’t know what it is about the Italians from this breeder, but they're all very opposed to being held except my one big roo.

    ➡ Quail hatch along

    He’s a bit of a squirmer lol. The feathers are just starting to come in too, so that doesn’t help. Hopefully this is better 😊

    ➡ Quail hatch along

    Alright... I’m stumped... what colour is this? Hatched from celadon eggs, thought it was white because it was solid yellow, but then it’s pin feathers started coming in dark, and now it looks blue/silver?! One of the others I though was an Italian is also feathering in with this colour on...

    Silkies - They’re simply SPECTACULAR!

    This is my 3.5 month old cockerel; he doesn’t have a name yet, but we’re working on it. He’s SUCH a sweetheart. I don’t know how I ever went without having Silkies before ❤ Unfortunately I hatched 80% roos this year, so amid the pandemic I have to find someone who still has hatching eggs...

    2020 Gosling Hatch-A-Long

    I’m up to 13 babies now and have 3 more due in the next few days, then 2 more groups of 2 for a total of 20 goslings... then I’m done! The incubator has been running for over 3 months straight, I'm ready to be done. On the plus side, I’m at a 100% hatch rate on my fertile eggs, and I learnt my...

    Partridge Silkies - Nothing else

    Thank you 😊 I’m so happy I didn’t choose to rehome her early on because she was a Satin, I would have kicked myself for it lol.

    Partridge Silkies - Nothing else

    For anyone looking back at this later on, in case they’re wondering what colours their chicks will be... #1 did end up being blue cream/porcelain (I don’t have any current pictures of her). #2 was a splash (roo - sold) #3 and #4 ended up being Moorhead silver partridge, one Satin and one...

    Silkie /satin Breeding question

    Lavender needs to breed to lavender to make more lavenders, so putting one in your BBS pen isn’t ideal if you’re trying to breed lavender (you would need a whole separate colour pen for that one). I believe the lavender gene can be carried by black, but that chicken would only have one copy of...

    Let’s see your Red Pyle (Splash Blue Partridge) Brahmas!

    Thank you 😊 We’re hoping to have them available for shipping within Canada in the next year, but I’m unsure of the regulations on shipping across the border.

    Let’s see your Red Pyle (Splash Blue Partridge) Brahmas!

    @JacinLarkwell these are a couple of my grow out ladies, they hatched either the end of March, or the beginning of April, so they’re only... 9-10 weeks old, I think. This year has been so hectic that I’ve lost track of time lol. Type wise they’re nowhere near where I would like them to be, but...

    Paint X Partridge Silkies... what colour are these chicks!?

    Thank you 😊 Elvira turned out gorgeous! I’m still 99.9% certain she is a pullet, but so far I have 15 roosters from 20 chicks so knowing my luck she would make a quick turn around and surprise me by being a roo 🤦🏻‍♀️. The chick that was the same colour as Elvira at hatch is a Silkied version of...

    Let’s see your Red Pyle (Splash Blue Partridge) Brahmas!

    They’re not very common. I just took all of my pictures off my phone the other day, but I will try and get some new ones in the next little while to post. My hens all look awful because the rooster is very... amorous, I haven’t had any luck finding saddles that work, but I have a few younger...

    Let’s see your Red Pyle (Splash Blue Partridge) Brahmas!

    This is our second year with BP Brahmas, and we have a BP rooster over Gold hens and a single BP hen. Recently we hatched out a batch for a customer, and ended up with what I’m assuming is a Splash/Red Pyle for the first time! It was so much lighter than the others when it hatched that I did a...

    2020 Gosling Hatch-A-Long

    My sweet little nugget :love It has 3 siblings now too, and another due tomorrow! The 3rd was an assisted hatch who wasn’t out when this picture was taken, because it was having complications (severe edema on it’s head), but it’s out now and doing great 😊.
