    Anybody know what this looks like?

    This is exactly what happened to us. We thought that sending chicks in the mail was straight barbaric so we weren’t going to do that. I did some research and found this hatchery that has a beautiful website and lots of glowing reviews. From people just like me where things like Marek’s aren’t...

    I found a Colorado chicken FB page that has posts about Marek’s confirmed by CSU (veterinary teaching school) (also where I took my birds) in chickens that were gotten from this same hatchery.

    This is our very first flock of chickens in a brand new coop I built in a yard that has never had other chickens in it. I got all the birds from the same place. So if it is Marek’s, it without a doubt came with them from the hatchery.

    It definitely looks like she is trying to “adjust” something. My gf said this morning she felt her crop area and while it didn’t feel big or hard in there it did feel soft and swollen.

    This is one of two we’ve had quarantined from the others for a week+ with a respiratory thing. They were on oral antibiotics for 5 days and Tylosin for the last 4. The other one not shown has just been kinda sleepy today. No obvious respiratory distress or noisy breathing in either one. Thank you.

    What did you do with your flock today?

    Built a ladder on top of my ladder so the 6 week olds can get up to the observation tower easier :)

    Solution to stop hanging waterer from tipping?

    I know I’m late to this party but I just figured this out about 10 minutes ago. Seems to work great. Old hinge. Drilled out the holes big enough to accept whatever carabiner type thing you’re gonna use. For the low side I used those small ones that you screw the shaft tight to secure. Just a...

    Hey y’all

    Hi! Just got back into some baby girls after having been away for a number of years. Always kind of been a creeper around here but hope to learn some things and make some friends : )
