    New Emu Owner

    Hello everyone! Brand new emu owner here, I've had these 2 for about a week. I tried unsuccessfully to hatch eggs in the past (so close). Some folks right up the street from us decided to rehome these guys, so I brought them home. They're not super tame but they arent aggressive, they'll eat out...

    Hello again!

    Long time returning member dropping in to say hi! Its been a while since I've had birds, but I'm back at it :) My chicks are about 4 weeks old now (though I actually dont have any recent pics of them) and just moved to their coop recently. We're working on the run still, but we're over halfway...

    Black Sexlinks?

    I have no idea what these 2 girls are, black Sexlinks maybe? I've never had them, so I have no idea. They seem to have a more of a Leghorn shape (not very meaty), which is whats making me unsure. They have a few bits of gold in their hackle feathers, single combs and slate colored shanks. They...

    What does the fox say?

    The fox says theres a crazy lady and a really big dog chasin' me! I was outside doing some chores today, and that little jerk snuck right up on a couple of my new hens! When he snatched one up and headed in to the woods, me and my dog followed. One way or another, dead or alive, I was getting...

    White "mold" on turkeys head?

    That's the best way to describe it. A couple of days ago I noticed a small white patch on my black Spanish hens head. At first I thought it could be lice nits so I treated them and their coop, but it isn't. A few days later, its gotten a little bigger, and it looks fuzzy like mold. Maybe some...

    Is it okay to leave eggs to hatch in an auto turner?

    That's the question. I have to admit, I'm an auto turner newbie, but I splurged and got myself one this year! I've always just turned them by hand. Anyway, I only have one incubator, so if I take the turner out at lockdown, I'm assuming I'd have to fiddle with the temp on my incubator to get it...

    Chick got flipped...

    I came home from work tonight to find one of my Sizzles laying in an odd position. It was sort of on its back, rolled onto to its side a little with its legs stretched out behind it, if that makes sense. I thought it was dead, but when I picked it up to remove it from the brooder, it peeped at...

    Sexing question....

    Can hens have long, droopy snoods like toms? I have 2 black Spanish that I was fairly confident were both female. So confident, that I picked up a tom to go with them when we lost ours to the neighbors dogs (not the neighbors fault, our turkeys took a field trip across our 14 acre field and flew...

    Dishwasher incubator?

    Has anyone ever made one? Our dishwasher died, has since been replaced and the old one is still sitting on my porch. I'd like to do something with it, rather than throwing it away and thought it might make a good incubator! I Googled "how to make a dishwasher incubator" and not much came up. I...

    What is she?

    I've posted this hen before, as a younger bird, and no one seemed to know what she is. She hasn't changed much and the only new info is she lays a brown egg. Any breed suggestions are very much appreciated. She's pretty friendly and likes to hop the fence and hang out with my Silkies during...

    Ugh, I REALLY want to hatch!

    But, I never have good luck this time of year :( We heat with a wood stove and I incubate with an LG and my temperature never stays stable enough for my eggs to make it. Anyone else dealing with a similar situation? How do you hatch when the weathers cool if you heat with wood? During the summer...

    Ever seen a Whippoorwill?

    My step son was tromping around in the woods this morning when he stumbled across this little one: Of course, he couldn't keep his hands off. He brought it to the house thinking it was an owlet. I snapped a quick picture and we walked it back to where it was found, where there was another...

    What breed is she?

    This pullet came from TSC. I've posted it before and no one was sure what she was. She's a bantam, has a single comb and is around 10 weeks old now, so I thought it would be easier to identify her Is she a golden phoenix? Something else? Thanks in advance! As a chick. I originally bought her...

    Anyone ever seen this before?

    Here's the back story: This morning when I opened the coop, my normally peppy Silkie hen wasn't so peppy. She had a slight head wobble and seemed as though she couldn't see to hop down the one step to get out of the coop. So, I picked her up and sat her on the ground and made plans to give her...

    Can't post pictures from phone :(

    I have a Nokia Lumina. I haven't had it long, but I absolutely can not get it to post pictures. On my Android, I simply clicked the picture icon and then chose a picture from my phones gallery. Now, when I get to the page to embed the photo it doesn't give me the option to choose a picture, just...
