    Are eggs still good?

    I ordered eggs on the internet and they were shipped on the 13th and I received them today. Do you think they are still good to put into the incubator or has too much time passed?

    Sick birds? Not sure

    Quote: 2 and 3 years old. Brown and runny. I called another vet today and he told me to worm them and treat them for a bacterial infection. I bought Wazine 17 and Sulmet - sulfamethazine sodium 12.5%. I'm wondering which one I should use first? any ideas?

    No, it's diarrhea. I called my vet last week and they know nothing about chickens.

    Chicken worming

    I have owned hens for almost three years now (they don't free range) and have never wormed them. I've never seen - nor have I looked for - worms in the poop. I have DE in the coop shavings and give them ACV every now and then. Do I need to be giving them something else and more often? I sell...

    Help with run problem - pictures

    Colorado, yes I've had to shovel more dirt also, but it takes a LOT of dirt to back-fill the entire run. Frog, concrete might just work for me.

    What do I do-chickens have fowl pox

    We've had so much rain here! OMG what a mess! Just about all of my girls have the pox. So there is nothing I can do about it? The mosquitoes were absolutely HORRIBLE this summer. Is this harmful to humans?

    so they let Michael Vick back into the NFL?

    I don't give a rats a** if he served a life sentence and was raped everyday of his miserably life in the pen - it still wouldn't be justice served IMHO.

    Old chickens beating up new chickens

    cmom, that's a good idea. I'm going to put the two bullies by themselves and put the young girls in the big run and I'm definitely going to keep the hose handy. Thanks!

    Old chickens beating up new chickens

    I've separated my four young girls from my older hens. They are in the same run but separated by a fence. They've been separated for a week. My young sweet speckled sussex got into the older girls run and my usually sweet buff orp and australorp almost killed her. I'm so ticked at the older...
