    Feather footed roo - mites or infected?

    Thanks! I’ve never dealt with this obviously. I’ve never noticed a feather picker within my flock so that will be hard to narrow down but I will definitely pay more attention to try to get to the bottom of it

    Feather footed roo - mites or infected?

    I noticed my feather footed roo’s leg is inflamed and possibly scaly mites? for a while now I’ve noticed I have a feather plucker getting him but it has never been this inflamed/infected. What can I do to help? I have VetRX and a few other things on hand. Thanks much!

    Flock not laying - help please

    I’ll compare lay rates but I know which breed belongs to each egg by color and I only have two at most of each breed. I checked vents, and I was correct on those laying and not. Definitely no predator in my raised coops, thankfully. Good news! My second Barnevelder started to lay [email protected]

    Flock not laying - help please

    They’re offered oyster shell always.bI do understand shorter days, amount of light, egg decrease, etc. They’re offered oyster shell always. They’re not laying at all is why I’m alarmed by it. Above I listed ages.

    Flock not laying - help please

    Hey all! About half of my flock is not laying. Can I please get some feed back on food/diet? I’m feeding them all Home Fresh multiflock. I have a mix of ages.

    Window placement in 10x10 coop

    Well guys this coop was completed a while ago but I’m reviving this thread! We’re now working on the run. 4x4 posts are in, roof complete and almost all HC installed. There’s a section on the back that’s 9’ in height. Yikes! It was either super tall walls/roof or super short to avoid the window...

    Winterizing run

    Great to know! I bought 6 mil yesterday. Our wind as been insane lately so I’m really hoping it gets me through this winter at least. I plan to invest in something thicker/stronger next winter as the cost of lumber & material to build my run has me in shock

    The Underappreciated Hybrids Thread

    I think so too! I keep calling him a roo but technically he’s still a cockerel at 7 months old 🥰 He keeps getting more and more stunning! Same! I’m extremely uneducated on mixing but curious as well. And the coloring 🥰 My crested cream has the best temperament I wouldn’t mind more of her

    The Underappreciated Hybrids Thread

    This is my polish Frizzle x silkie roo. I’m unsure how his offspring would pan out with his ladies (crested cream legbar, barnevelders, Olive Egger and sex links ) but I just may try!

    Coop Winterization

    Have you had a chance to test this out yet? I know most marine vinyl is rated to -40 below but I’m interested to know how easy it is to handle in colder temps

    Cocci?

    thanks! I think I’m going to start treating tomorrow just incase. Do you by chance know if there is a wait period on eggs being edible while doing so?

    Cocci?

    Is this cocci? Or would it be brighter red and thicker? I’ve found blood in stool like this almost daily the past 4 days. Just one dropping typically. I noticed my roo had a slightly bloody foot feather this morning.

    Pump House Coop Reno

    Here is pic of open eves. I’m still undecided On the tree. Leaning towards chopping it so I don’t have to deal with the mess of going around it, it being in the way of windows and the trunk can be used as a roost of some sort
