    American(Buff, Blue, Lavander,etc.)goose thread! Post pics!

    We went to a sale in Trenton KY today & found out about the bird flu in Christian county KY. No sale today & not for another couple of months! We were wanting to buy some more grown geese ourselves and now can't find any.

    Broode Silkie- how many peafowl eggs?

    I have had very good luck with my silkie hens when they are broody; they have hatched out pheasants and peafowl. My silkie hens can handle 2 peafowl eggs fairly well; I have a black silkie hen that hatched out 2 white peachicks last year!

    My peafowl appear to be eating their own eggs!

    Thanks for the info: I have not seen any squirrels in there yet this season; I did sacrifice a few guinea eggs under a milk crate overnight but nothing bothered them.. I still did not get egg this evening either-that is 2 days now that I have not seen a new egg!

    My peafowl appear to be eating their own eggs!

    Great idea about the milk crate---I have seen squirrels also running up and down the outer poles, in and out near the eaves, but you would not suspect a squirrel or not? I have seen mice, they are being eliminated as I speak, and the stuff is supposed to work on rats too but I have never seen a...

    My peafowl appear to be eating their own eggs!

    The year before last we had great production from our one pair of peafowl-white peacock and pied peahen. I allowed the peahen to hatch out a late hatch that September-2 pied males & 1 pied female. Then last year-nothing happens. An egg laid here every now and then and then seem to disappear...

    Do they always hatch their eggs?

    I understand your pain! I have guineas that will lay up piles of eggs, 40 at a time, and this past summer on 2 rare occasions, they would attempt to set for a few days; even managing to hatch out 3 or 4 of the little buggers, and I declare that when I went out to check on them the very next...

    How many here are actual backyarders vs. Farmers?

    Farmer!! Even though we both work at other full time jobs, we are sure we are farmers! We own 46 acres and rent 2 other farms, total acreage altogether being somewhere near 650 acres. My husband owns & raises black Angus cattle; he uses the other farms for pasture to raise the calves up to...

    Pesky snakes

    Yup, I agree that a snake has its' place, it just so happens that it's place is not in my Silkie coop!

    Pesky snakes

    A snake can sneak in and eat the eggs/chicks right beneath the hen, especially if she is setting where it is secluded and dark. I killed a chicken snake that was in the Silkie coop this past Saturday and it was about 5 feet long.

    bagels and loks

    such a funny story, I can almost see it! They sure do get used to being "spoiled", don't they? I have 18 golden campines in their own separate coop and pens; (we have peafowl, yellow golden pheasants, a handful of guineas and about 25 silkies-they all have their own coops and pens). Anyway...

    The Middle Tennessee Thread

    Jenski, it took me 50 minutes to get in to work this morning; it usually only takes me 25 minutes. I drove very slow even though I am driving a Jeep 4x4. The roads that I was traveling were completely covered with snow and ice and did not seem to get much better until I got closer to Dickson...

    Campine Chicken thread?

    You are most welcome; I will try to get in touch with him, it may be a day or two before he can get back to me, he teaches school and is quite busy gearing up for the holidays. I have an outpatient surgery on Tuesday that will have me out of pocket for a few days, but I promise you I will not...

    Campine Chicken thread?

    I am sorry, I meant that I am in middle Tennessee and I believe that these other 2 breeders are somewhere northeast of middle Tennessee. My contact is in Kentucky and I am thinking that Lynn Shelbourne is in Indiana or Illinois?--not sure and don't know about Steve Gould. I can try getting in...

    McDonalds McRib - Love It, Like It, Loathe It?

    I have never tried the McRib--the idea of purposefully ingesting a pressed form of indescribable meat?, made to resemble a small rack of ribs just doesn't do anything for me. No wonder they have to disguise it with all that barbeque sauce!!

    Campine Chicken thread?

    I LOVE my golden campines! Right now, I have 24 of them, 6 of them are roosters! I know that I do not need that many roosters, but I want to get thru the winter to make sure how hardy they end up being. We are finishing up a ginormous new coop with outside pen on each side just for my...
