    Long Island Ny Laws On Chickens????

    I just got a summons, and was told by Code Enforcement they have to be gone by next week. All from an @#*** neighbor who has a vendetta against us from a tree issue from the beginning of the year.

    Dog licking too much

    With mine, it is a behavior that he developed from puppyhood. He seems to really love his feet (we ran a battery of skin tests when he had problems with his ears, and our vet told us it is just a behavior that he does) My other two will obsessively lick each other, but that is more of a...

    I can't keep my humidity up during LockDown. Please Help!

    I use 3 sponges in my LG. 1 on each side and one on top (I have a fan so the bottom hole can't be used) and kept good humidity. I too use a injector and a piece of plastic tubing to add the water. This past hatch (2 days ago) I went as far as to put the bator up on blocks for better airflow...

    JUNE HATCH-A-LONG come join in

    Quote: You did good! They look great. Congrats! Very nice pics. I see you're using that waffle-like no-slip shelf liner stuff on the floor of the brooder, it sure does work for good footing. We used the shelf liner for our hatch in April and it worked well. It also make for a very eay...

    JUNE HATCH-A-LONG come join in

    Just hatched a mix of Marans, BLRW's, Cochins and Barred Rocks. They were shipped by a BYC member and our hatch rate was exactly 50%. Seems like that is not bad for shipped eggs. 9 out of 18 hatched.

    Set eggs under broody on 5/18!!! Anyone else?

    So how did the hatch go for everyone? Ours hatched yesterday. We had 18 to start but 8 never developed enough. So that left us with 10 at lockdown. 9 of the 10 hatched yesterday with one more to go. No signs of it hatching but 9 is not bad at all. So the total is 1 BLRW, 1 Splash Cochin, 1...

    What's the stupidest car damage you've ever done to your own car?

    I was in HS, on my way to see my GF (now wife) in my DADs truck, and bring her some flowers - we had just started dating. I was in a rush because I was running late to see her then get to work. I slam into a tree that is like 10 feet from the edge of my long driveway backing up. Broke the rear...

    Will a broody hen raise incubated eggs with her own once hatched?

    We just did this a couple of months ago (first time our broody got to hatch, and were unsure if she would do it so we only gave her 4, she hatched 100%!) We switced out some of the chicks she hatced with some we incubated a few times over the first few days (to keep the ones we wanted and sold...

    Set eggs under broody on 5/18!!! Anyone else?

    Our last hatch we let our Broody Cochin hatch out 4 of the 26 eggs we had. She was 4 for 4 and did all the work. It was great. We should have givien her more but were unsure she would sit the whole time. She did and is a great mom. We kept only 5 from our last hatch and at least two are Roo's...

    Chicken proof rat traps ???

    Keep us posted, I have the same problem and "caught" one of our 5week old chicks across both legs (and somehow unharmed) in a rat snap-trap. I have tried the hav-a-hart trap but it has not worked so far.

    Has anyone made a wiggler out of a plastic easter egg?

    wow, I would not have thought of using gel, but that makes sense (and I have some to spare) great idea.

    Has anyone made a wiggler out of a plastic easter egg?

    I can't find a water wiggler and started to try and figure out how to make my own. I started with a zip-loc baggie, fought with it then had an "aha" moment. We have some of those plastic eggs that sandwich together, and I thought a water baloon inside it with the probe shoved inside the baloon...
