    Mareks???

    Thanks! I have been reading the other threads on mareks and what I can find online. I was just wanting chicken people's input especially if they have seen this before or experienced something similar.

    Can LICE cause limping leg or bad eye??

    Well I am struggling with a sick bird myself. His leg seems injured and he might have cloudy eyes--not sure on the last. Those two together signal mareks disease. I hope it is not the case for both of us!!

    Mareks???

    Ok I have a sick roo. Started with one leg seeming to bother him. I checked him out and he had a bad spot on his foot ... thought bumblefoot but he was still getting around. Then his foot got better but then he was holding out his other leg. He could not get up into the coop for food and water...

    turkey hatching experts

    Oh AND the bottom of the still air lg bator looks pretty yucky. It looks like it might be growing mold. I had planned to clean it quickly this weekend before lockdown. Do you think this will kill them?

    turkey hatching experts

    So I am incubating turkey eggs for the first time. They were suppose to hatch next Thursday but the momma turkey had sat on them a bit so last night when I went to turn them I had a pip. It surprised me! Anyway I am worried because the humidity was in the 40s and the membrane looks dried out. It...

    Did I post these already? The first is an EE and it has no comb or wattles but it has those pointy feathers around the neck. I "think" it is a girl! This is my roo from my buff roo and white cochin/silkie mix. This is my EE roo with a BLRW comb. Somehow all the chickens I have...

    So you want my roos to eat? That is fine by me ... I just don't want to eat them! Maybe I could trade you for or pay you for your processed chickens! Lol! I just don't want to eat my own! Of course the bantams are prob not ideal for eating???

    Yeah that is the trick .... having the right roos! I have hatched for fun from my own chickens. So one roo is an EE and very pretty! One roo is a Buff Orp BLRW mix and very buff looking except with the blrw comb. I have the danver bantam roo who is beautiful but hormonal! Lastly I have a...

    Can I send al my roos to you then? I like your idea of separate communities!! Anyone want a Kris and Robert stock danver roo? I am told he is just going through a hormonal stage but he drew blood on my 11 yo at feeding time and tried to attack me too. I fought him off but I can't keep birds that...

    Sexing Barred Rocks

    Ok in my opinion it is a pullet. I think it is too dark and the comb is not that big. Of course time will tell!!

    Our soil is all clay too. I am hoping that all the stuff we planted today grows anyway! I guess we will see. I am not sure the smal tomato plants will make the night anyway with all the deer and rabbits around. We won't be able to get any fencing up until next weekend--yes we maybe did that in...
