    Kudos to USPS

    Pride and Joy (on here) mailed two o shamo to me Tues afternoon at 2:00. My post office called me Thurs morning at 8:30 to come get my chickens! They went from one end of Florida up to the other and over near Tallahassee. Quick trip! It took me 14 hours to drive that trip last year.

    Dry pox observations

    Last year my chickens had fowl pox. Typical lesions...round patchy bumps on the combs and the wattles. Went away on its own. This year my polish and other non-typical comb varities got pox as bumps on their faces and on the beaks themselves. Some who were worse off got them all over their legs...

    juvenile breda with leg issues

    I have a breda juvenile a couple of months old that seems to have injured its legs/hip joint? The first morning it was squatted down with its legs spread sideways and its belly on the ground. I picked it up and checked its legs and manipulated everything and all seemed fine. I put it down and it...

    So...broomstick was a failure

    I had to dispatch a mean roo. Tired the broomstick method.....his head popped out from under the stick! I won't go into the details but I eventually got it done but I feel so stupid. I guess maybe I didn't step down hard enough? I am not sure how I managed to mess it up but I surely did. I think...

    taming feral rooster

    Anyone with experience getting a feral rooster used to roosting in a pen? There is a feral rooster that has been hanging around here with my hens since his last two went missing. I was wondering about how long I would need to pen him up in the pen to get him to return to it instead of the pines...

    save me from old people

    at least the ones who pretend to know it all. I am technically an old person too but wanted to warn you all....just because a person is old that does not mean they know everything! Some idiots manage to make it to be old too. A friend of mine has six new chickens about a couple months old. She...

    vent gleet

    Have a banty hen that I thought was going broody. Turns out she had an egg she could not lay. I finally helped her by grabbing the egg from behind and working the vent around the egg (after a bath soak and some oiling). At the time I didn't think the egg was all that big really. Now, several...

    I have been to serama heaven...

    I got a chance today to visit Grady Taylor and see all his seramas. Unreal. This was my first chance to see seramas in person instead of just in pics on the computer. WOW! We spent two and a half hours talking and looking at seramas. He is absolutely the nicest most patient man. I was amazed at...

    Removing light?

    I have four baby silkies (around 8 weeks old-ish) that have been in my house for a few weeks. I put them out in my open air pen in a separate enclosure with the heat lamp that they had inside. The ambient temp last night was 45. The light kept it at 55 or so. They seemed to do fine. This week we...
