    Something got my roo! I am just amazed. UPDATE-I GOT IT!! PG 9-GRAPHIC

    What happens to you if you eat these eggs??

    I have heard that you can not eat the eggs of chickens who are feed medicated feed. One of our local feed stores does not sell separate starter & grower. They only sell a combo. I simply asked for "starter/grower". NOT "medicated starter/grower". They took it upon themselves to give me...

    Starter Vs. Grower? Laying mash? Scratch?? CONFUSED ON WHAT TO FEED

    Ok...I've read on here that you feed starter until a certain age, then swap to grower. I go to the feed store & tell them I would like to have "Grower" now, & not "Starter". Do you have to ask for medicated starter, or is it all medicated? And what is it medicated for? They say to me, that...

    Hatching upright eggs as opposed to laying them on the side--Opinions?

    I've seen pics of eggs during hatch both laying on the side & in the upright position in cartons. I have heard that you lay eggs on the side so the chick can get into position for hatch. I have also seen pics of cartons of eggs with almost all eggs hatched. Has anyone had more sucess one...

    Toes Fused Together On Newly Hatched Chick.

    I just hatched a few BCM's. One of them was born with it's outer two toes fused together by skin on both feet. Since the pinky toe is way shorter than the middle toe, the middle toe is forced to curl under. It can't now walk properly, but it does hobble around. The chick is alert and...
