    Cornish Cross vs Chicken Meat

    After reading the responses, I think it is the feed. I feed Scratch n' Peck which is mainly wheat, lentils, fish meal. There are only a few fish I can tolerate, so I bet that's it.

    Cornish Cross vs Chicken Meat

    That's good to know, I can't do wheat well, but I really can't do fish and fish meal is in my feed.

    Cornish Cross vs Chicken Meat

So I kept buying "organic" chicken from the grocery store. Now that I am an active breeder I have...

    Silver Lavendar Orpingtons?...or not?

    You made my month! I thought I would be good at genes since I’m a math brain, but my math brain seems to fail me in biology! Guess I’ll return in a year to tell you how it turned out!

    Silver Lavendar Orpingtons?...or not?

    I have a black/silver marans cock bird and a blue/silver marans cock bird, plus lavender Orp hens. I was thinking how beautiful the silver neck would be on a lavender Orp. So I hung out with the kippenger calculator for a while and I'm stumped. I just keep getting black. I know lavender is a...

    Easiest Way to Move a Tractor

    So I'm pretty proud of myself for building a tractor all by myself! Hubs gave me a lesson on the chop saw and I'm pretty sure he was laughing behind my back, but in the end he said "it's surprisingly sturdy"! Success! I put black drainage pipe sliders on the bottom of the two short sides so it...

    Birchen Chocolate Orpingtons

    I would assume the orps have the chocolate gene since they are chocolate but I dont know if they are split to anything. I have black birchens and also black/blue/splash birchens

    Birchen Chocolate Orpingtons

    I’ve been thinking of crosses I can do with my existing flock. I would like to make a Birchen Chocolate Orpington but I really can’t figure out the Kippen calculator on them. I want the chocolate color to be retained. Should I breed to blue or black?

    Injury help!

    I see the puss ball in her eye socket. It’s too big to push out of the eye hole. Last night I was able to wrap her in a towel and hold onto her mohawk while I picked at the mass with needle nose plyers. Tonight she’s not having it. Is there a sedative or something to calm her? Baby benadryl?
