    Could things get any worse?! Frozen Wing/Feet, dehydration, and lice/mites

    Thank you for the input. He is more active today and seems to be taking a step in the right direction. I tried some sugar in the water and he drank some but not a lot (still an improvement though). I have started treating him for lice and many dead ones have fallen off of him (good sign that...

    Could things get any worse?! Frozen Wing/Feet, dehydration, and lice/mites

    I hatched some eggs back in August resulting in a single chick due to a massive temperature spike. This one and only chick lived in a brooder in my room for months, knows his name, follows me, and now clearly doesn't know how to be a chicken. He has spent the last 3 months with the rest of our...

    Coturnix quail with swollen eyes?!?

    I purchased 14 three week old quail just under four weeks ago. They are all housed together at the moment and I have not had the time to sex them and separate out which ones I'm keeping. This last week along with the arrival of their first eggs I have noticed a couple with swollen eyes. I have...

    Is my new duck a male or female?

    Thanks DucksAndGardens! When I picked her up I was told it was a male but as my mom and i spent more time with our new addition we both said she looks like a female. We originally got her because we wanted a male as we no longer had one (our neighbors dog killed several of our chickens...

    November/December "Hatch-a-Long"

    There is both inbreeding and line breeding. Most people think of inbreeding when something goes wrong and the offspring has issues. You can breed mother to son, father to daughter, half brother to half sister, cousin to cousin, aunt to nephew, and uncle to niece. Now with that said when line...
