    Chantecler Thread!

    I just got off the phone with the lady that I purchased the birds from and she said I can bring back 3 of the cockerels in exchange for pullets. That means a 4 hour round trip ones again but I think it might be worth it. Bre

    Chantecler Thread!

    So it appears after taking another look one of the 4 pullets appears to be a cockerel. I might be down to only 3 pullets out of 8 but this little guy has straight as an arrow toes!! So my question now is should I use him for breeding even though he's small or should I do a test breeding with...

    Possible Mareks disease? Grey pupil

    Thank you for the links. I'm guessing there's no point in separating him as if it is Mareks the others already have it.. Not sure where to start finding someone that would test him.. I was thinking of calling a college close by.

    Chantecler Thread!

    Thank you Karen for the quick response! I'm thinking about finding a vet that can test that one roo for Mareks. If not I'll definitely be culling him! I'm in central Alberta Canada (Caroline) if anyone has a rooster or two there wanting to sell Id consider that option. If not I'd definitely...

    Advice on keeping pheasants throw a Canadian winter

    Thank you Tony for the fast response! That's exactly the advice I needed! I'll put some plastic up first thing tomorrow. Do you think a heated dog dish would benefit them or should I just stick with replacing there frozen water with fresh water ones a day?
