I have been chickenless for quite a few years now. I went to visit my cousin this past week and saw the state he was keeping his birds in. He had two chicks in a guinea pig cage with a tarp halfway over it and a soaking wet towel in there. It has been raining for days straight! One of the chicks...
Dogs and cats can be spayed/neutered at either 8 weeks old or when they hit 2 pounds. Many vets like to wait until they are six months old. Personally, I'd get females done ASAP. I usually wait for male dogs to reach at least a year old. Just personal preference.
I made the mistake of putting my couple day old babies in with 2 week olds. Lots of pecking and biting. They ended up killing one of the little ones but it only took a day or so before they're pecking order was established.
My muscovy Elvis is the daddy. I'm having issues with my uploader so pics will be slow to come. But I'm so anxious I had to share right away. Last night two little boogers hatched. They look just like little mallard babies.
You can't tell but the two babies are under there. There were 7 eggs...
I only have three ducks right now and they don't have names yet. One is about a week and a half and the others are are a bit older than the first. Names will come. Totally came to this thread for ideas. lol
In the past I had:
Daffy: black Swedish hen
Yakky: blue Swedish drake
Last year my cousin got the only crested Swedish TSC had. I couldn't find anymore at any of the stores near me. I was upset. I'm on a mission to get my crested Swedish this year. So far, I haven't seen any Swedish at all. Just mallards.
