    What am I?

    So this baby hatched from a batch of chocolate muscovy eggs I purchased. Obviously not a muscovy baby since it hatched on day 28. Any ideas? It's coloring is really throwing me off. [/IMG]

    Brinsea spot check vs hovabator thermometer

    I am currently using a forced air hova bator genesis with a brinsea spot check thermometer as a back up. I have the probe at egg level and it is showing almost a full degree lower than what the hova is showing. Should I adjust the hova so the brinsea will show 99.5?

    What do you feed your breeding poultry?

    Currently I have a breeding flock of BBS ameraucana and muscovy ducks. Currently I am feeding the ducks Purina flock raiser and my ameraucana Purina Laying pellets. I have read that the laying pellets can be bad for the roosters due to the calcium levels. I was thinking of switching all the...

    Coturnix problems

    I recently culled my flock of 22 coturnix. I kept 12 females and 3 males in a 2' x 6' cage. I had all the males separated with no problems so I could keep the biggest ones. Once I put them with the girls the problems started. One of them has bumble foot and they all three fight constantly! I...

    Today my 10 month old embden female laid her first egg! I have seen them mating a lot so I figured it wouldn't be long. If I keep taking them away will she keep laying?

    Looking for testers.

    Hello everyone I am looking for 3 to 4 people to be my "guinea pigs" for my scovy eggs. I have never shipped eggs before so I am willing to send a few people some eggs for just the cost of shipping. By agreeing to this I will not be held responsible if your eggs arrive broken or do not hatch...
