    The time has come to separate. A genetics sort of question.

    I have one golden hen. Do I put her in with the A&M's and a tuxedo roo? Or do I put her in with the browns and a brown roo? What will I end up with?

    All I do is complain to you guys...

    but life has been handing me lemons lately, and I'm all out of sugar! Last Monday, my car died. I suppose I should explain the dynamics of my life, so a reader can understand the significance of my dead car: I do everything. Yes, everything. My dh works at his poopy job and that's pretty...

    Facebook friends?

    Maybe I'm out of the loop, but is there some point to friending people you don't know? I mean, other than the obvious "Look at me! I'm popular!!" aspect? I just de-friended 2 of my so-called "friends"--total strangers to me. I got invites from them maybe a month ago, and I figured we had...

    What happened?

    2 days ago, I moved my babies to the big hutch in the kitchen with my A&M hens. Once the older birds got over their terror of babies , everybody was fine. All were eating and drinking today and yesterday. I even put the heat lamp in when I moved them, just to be on the safe side. The babies...

    I'm baaack; A Workers' Comp Dilemma

    Post-hatch let down -w/ pictures added

    Does anyone else feel that? Well, at least I can unplug the bator soon. Out of 46 eggs, I got 3 A&M's, 4 goldens, 5 tibetans, and a ton of browns. I also had 11 that were infertile or quitters (some of both), and 4 pipped chicks that died when my 3 yr old turned the temp up to 116 at the...

    Someone needs to write a book here!

    I've been checking out Amazon for quail books. Technical would be great, but even light reading would be ok. By technical, I mean nuts-and-bolts stuff, written by experts (like some of you guys, for instance!). I thought it would be nice to have a book to refer to, rather than jumping online...

    So far...

    I've got 5 new babies, and 41 eggs to go! We got back from my in-laws' house (helped them move this weekend) at 7-ish, and 2 were out and fluffy -- 1 little A&M and 1 brown. Of the 3 others, I have 1 golden and 2 I-don't-know-what-but-they're-darks. They're too wet to tell yet. The two...

    A plethora of eggs; Ok, so I'm dumb

    I got 3 eggs in 4 hours yesterday, from 2 hens. Is that normal?

    Dogs mating, Thanks MIL!

    My dh's parents gave us their 10 yr old NEUTERED dog a couple weeks ago. As I was loading the dishwasher just now, I happened to look out the window. He's locked together with our female coonhound! So my questions are: 1) How likely is it that she's going to get pregnant? As I said, the...

    Marking chicks?

    How do you guys mark your chicks (assuming that you do)? Mine should be hatching this weekend, and I have some of my own mixed in with the ones I bought. I know with chicken chicks, some people dab nail polish on their claws, but quail are so much teenier, I didn't know if it would be noticable.

    Finally! An egg and a separate question.

    My 9 week old quail laid an egg this morning! She's the oldest by a week, and she's been mooning around for days singing her egg song. I was starting to think she was egg bound, but she finally laid this morning. Now for the question: My other hen has a crooked neck. I THINK it's because...

    Short, white, handsome and mysterious...

    I'm still getting one egg a day. I THINK I know who my gal is, and I THINK it's my solid white one. Yay! Last night I got my 5th egg, which is the 3rd I've saved for eating. This morning I decided to make some 1-egg-cornbread. When I opened the 3 eggs up, they were all fertile! That means...

    Is there any difference in coturnix eggs?

    I mean, is there any way to tell the different varieties apart? I'm guessing the answer is no, but I just wondered. My current eggs are a mixed bunch from my favorite ebay seller, and I have another 15 days till they hatch. I'm dying to know what they are!

    I need advice, too (another crazy neighbor post) --sorry so long!

    We live on a perfectly nice street in a perfectly nice neighborhood. Our street is racially diverse, and we have some wonderful neighbors. We all mow our lawns, chat across our fences, and plan block parties and block rummage sales. There is only one thing keeping it from being a new, modern...

    I feel like a heel.

    My in-laws are moving this weekend, and they recuited my husband, J, to do all the heavy work. His brother lives 13 hours away, and his BIL had to work today, so it's just him and his parents. Originally all of us were going to go, but our 3 yr old has a really bad cold. Plus with all the...

    Still don't know who's laying!

    We went out to eat for dinner, and dh turned off the kitchen light. When we got back it was pitch black in the there, and not an egg to be seen. I kinda figured that, since they didn't get their 14 hours of daylight. So I turned the light back on and 2 hours later there was egg #2. All 3...
