    American serama thread!

    Any frizzle I have ever had of any breed, I could tell at that age if they were frizzle or not. Those wing feathers would be curling if it were. I don't know of any birds that had straight feathers like that and turned out a frizzle.

    American serama thread!

    Just thought I would drop in and share a picture of my only (and most likely infertile Serama roo). He is 11 months old, and I think he is turning out pretty good. He was in a hatch that was born on the 4th of July... so they all got festive names. This is Blaster.

    Who do you call for hurt duck at a city park?

    Oh I didn't think that is what were getting at, but it popped into my head and I thought I would ask. My luck I would get a ticket for something I thought was perfectly legal lol, my luck hasn't been to great lately.

    Who do you call for hurt duck at a city park?

    I easily saw 10 Pekins there today, and that was only in the part of the lake I could see. I didn't get their number, but they have mine... so if they call I will let them know I will take her.

    How long to leave eggs in nest before you give up on duck setting.

    Thanks, I plan on only letting her have 10 or so eggs to hatch. No more then that anyway, if I think she can't cover them well I'll cut that number down more. I want some of the ducklings for myself, and I can easily sell the extras. I always have people trying to buy my ducks when they come...

    Who do you call for hurt duck at a city park?

    She is a Pekin duck, and you can tell she was someone's pet because she comes straight out of the water when she sees you... but there must have been quite a few people try to catch her because she stays just far enough away. I have plenty of room for another duck, if I get her caught I could...

    How long to leave eggs in nest before you give up on duck setting.

    Shameless bump lol. I would really like opinions on this, I haven't found anything that says how long people wait before they decide they need to take the eggs to incubate.

    Who do you call for hurt duck at a city park?

    Well... she has one of the rings in her mouth then it is around her neck, and a second ring is around her neck. We talked to 2 girls that work at the park and they have been trying to catch her for a week. Our attempt at catching her failed. She keeps her distance and the geese were not helping...

    Who do you call for hurt duck at a city park?

    My aunt told me that yesterday while she was at the park she saw a white duck with the 6 pack rings around his neck. She said it looks like it is very close to cutting into his neck. I am willing to go try to catch it, but I don't know if we can get it done with just me, my aunt, and my son. The...

    American serama thread!

    Nope.. cause then I would have to explain to these two what happened to their favorite chickens. These are my 2 favorite hens, and my son and nephew think they hung the moon. (Yeah don't pay attention to the background... it is a work in progress lol)

    How long to leave eggs in nest before you give up on duck setting.

    (I'm sure yall are thrilled that I have another newbie question lol.) Ok so I have 4 Cayugas, 1) 2 year old girl and 2) girls over a year old... then of course my drake. I have left their eggs in the nest but I'm not sure how long to leave them before I decide they aren't going to go broody...

    Taste of Duck Eggs

    I eat my Cayuga eggs. They don't taste any different then a chicken egg to me honestly. My Cayuga girls lay about 5-6 eggs a week, each. One duck hen kept our fridge stocked with eggs while I hatched all of the chicken eggs I had. We don't eat an over abundance of eggs though. I have never had...

    Oh I couldn't imagine turning 74+ eggs! lol I set 12 eggs tonight from my neighbor, he is giving me a dozen eggs a week to hatch. Found my first Cayuga egg of the year in the coop today also, so if she isn't sitting on them by next Sunday I will have about 6-12 duck eggs in next week. (Depends...

    Incubators Anonymous

    Well I think I am in over my head now. I have 2 cheapy incubators, one for incubating and the other for hatching. I hatched all of last year and finally turned the incubators off around January... and just fired my incubators back up again. I had a dog problem at the end of last year that...
