    Third Hatch Is A Charm !!!!!!!

    First hatch ended in total let down. 0 for 5. Second hatch 1 for 4. This hatch was a perfect 6 for 6. All of them were homegrown fertile eggs. The only difference is that for the last hatch, I left the eggs out on the counter to settle for 24 hours, before putting them in to the bator. So happy...

    Looking for info.

    We recently hatched a batch of our homegrown eggs in the incubator. Two of them were from our mama turken. I know very little about genetics in chickens. One of them hatched out to be a little buff colored chick, which would make sense because we have a buff orpington rooster. He/she looks like...

    Our 18 week old black austrolorp rooster crowed for the first time today, & I must say it was hilarious!!!!!

    Silkie question ???????

    I am looking into getting a few silkie chicks to raise for my little 5 year old to show at the local county fair next year. My question is this. When they are old enough, can I put them with my other chickens, or will the others pull their feathers out? Is it better to keep them in their own pen?
