I have one young gentlemen with the Chocolate Gene available for sale, $80/each.
Good sized English Bantam birds and seem huge at 6 weeks so may be good candidates for breeding with LF stock to get that chocolate gene cross-over.
Hatched Feb 2012. I will ship them at 8 weeks.
I will sell them...
I have a 10 month old welsummer hen, named Cocoa.
She has been normal today most of the day except she has been doing a repetetive 'caw' noise all day.
First time I noticed it this morning was after I let them out (and she practiced her crowing) I found her on the nest cawing
no egg came of it...
I have a vB Barnevelder trio for sale. They are started, around 6-8 months old. Local pickup in the Sacramento area. I'd like to avoid shipping, but if I have to ship, you will have to pay shipping costs including the box.
Trio = 1 cockerel, 2 pullets, of course.
Beautiful birds. My vBs are a...

have just started giving me hatching eggs.
First batch due in a couple of days. Color me very excited!

There is too much junk on the right side
it compressed the forum which is why I'm here at all

Of course I'm freaked out.
I've been reading up on how to treat, what to treat with.
Just looking for folks with experience on what worked since it is such a pain in the keister.
Right now I am looking at spraying down about 70 chickens and 10 turkeys. Can northern fowl mites and lice transfer...
I transported some birds the other day and discovered after they were in my car that they had mites
so the birds are all taken care of now but what do I do about my car?
Birds were transported in it on Friday, just got in it to go run an errand and I found 5 little critters crawling...
I just had my second chicken killed in about 6 months time by a neighborhood cat. I have not been able to yet find the owners. They are either not fessing up or it's at one of the houses that wasn't home on my first sweep.
What might work? I live in a neighborhood, so no guns. I dont' want...
I have 10 Blue Ameraucana eggs and want to ship tomorrow; so 8 plus 2.
These are splash roo over black hen so all blue chicks.
Splash roo carries darker blue gene than black hen he is with
We are getting very nice blue in second generation, B8 on the Ameraucana egg color chart.
Edited to add: PICs on Page 2
This is the first time I've ordered a box of chicks.
I'm of course worried about them.
They shipped yesterday, it's 9am and no one has called me
I dont' know how this works.
It should say call for pick up on the...

My ameraucana is the top hen and has been trying to sit on eggs multiple times in her short life. She's about 18 months or less.
She was all hunkered down on the pile of eggs a few weeks ago (this had become typical) and I lifted her off after getting pecked and put her on the ground while I...
I have a half dozen of each plus extras; so 7 at least from each breed pen.
Blue Ameraucanas (BBS) from blue roo over blue hen. I love the egg color, nice blue.
This breeding can hatch blue, black or splash chicks.
Black Ameraucanas (BBS) These are black over black ams from Blehm stock...
LOCAL PICK UP ONLY - SACRAMENTO
Picture is of hen from the same line as the parents.
I admit it, I'm a hatchoholic. I dont' know what I was thinking! Ok, I was thinking they are gorgeous and I didn't want the eggs to go to waste. Now I have two 7 week old barnevelders (vB line), 1 male and 1...
I can't find a definitive answer about birdseed (not from the bird feed, but bought just for the chickens)
The gal at the feed store said chickens can have it but I wanted to check with you all
are there dangers?
thanks for your help
Ok, I know you are all laughing now
the weird smell is not poop
I let the kids out last night when I got home from work for a little R&R around the yard. You would think it was Disneyland the way they charge out of the coop/pen
When I went to close it up just as it was getting dark, the dogs...
