    Peeps in Europe!

    Thanks!!! I just bought a big one with 30 liter...I'll see how I like it. But when I have all those chicks I am planing on hatching... I got to have something bigger. Does it leak at all? My regular waterers all leak.. or the chickens make a mess... either way... the bedding gets wet.

    That's a real nice looking coop. How do you like that waterer? Is is hard to clean? I was looking at it but ended up buying a different one.

    I have Sulmtaler. They didn't lay like at all almost since I got them. I guess the change, molting and who knows what else. One group of 4 hens finally decited to lay late December and have faithfully given me 1-2 eggs per day. Last week I even got 10 eggs. So it looks like things are...

    Now now John... I am sure there are other ways a husband can please his wife... just saying!:lau My hubby's pronounciation is really good, so is his writing for the most part. But grammar... he is fighting still at times.

    abpatchy's adventures in breeding

    I thought I would start a thread about my breeding adventure. I am basically a new chicken owner. I bought my chickens on July 31st 2019. I am going to be beeding for show but also to have eggs and meat at the same time. I am getting ready to place the first eggs into my brand new incubator...

    Peeps in Europe!

    well... I don't think it would change just because of Brexit. English has become such a common language worldwide. I cannot imagine it would change.

    oh no!!! that is bad luck. I see some hatching eggs for british lavender araucana sometimes here in Germany. Maybe that's an option?

    Peeps in Europe!

    Well, the first chickens I bought from a breeder in my area. He has made it all the way to european champion with his chickens. Then I'm breeding a breed that is not very common as a matter of fact it is considered endangered. I was just lucky enough to live in the area where he lives and...

    Peeps in Europe!

    Marek vaccine can only be given to a small chick. And only if it has absolutely no contact to adult chickens or lives inside a coop where adult chickens used to be. I will have my chicks vaccinated. I paid 500Euros for my 10 chickens. Those chicks will be too precious to me to lose them to...

    Finding a vet who deals with birds or even chickens is a difficult job. I know from different forums that you don't have to vaccinate in Austria. When I went to the show in Wels they did require Newcastle immunization. So my guess is, unless you are showing you don't have to. Contacting a...

    Same here, our Verein is a lot of old people. But also a couple of younger ones... I count as a younger one (and I'm 51). But I think there is hope...more and more people want to keep chickens... so who knows.
