    can anyone identify this fish?

    We found a ton of these in a mud hole that catches run off from the highway. We had put 5 very large catfish in this mud hole during the drought late last summer. Now the hole is getting low and the tanks are finally filled up so we needed to sane out the fish to put them in deeper water and...

    dewberries/blackberries okay for treat?

    I have an abundance of dewberries/blackberries (depending on what you want to call them). This is not on the list of treats but I was wondering if anyone has ever given this to their chicks/chickens. Mine are not a week old yet but I thought they might enjoy a few here and there. I just wanted...

    My new girls and one boy are here!

    I was fortunate enough to get to pickup my babies yesterday at Ideal. It is nice living so close that I don't have to worry about the chicks going through the stress of shipping. I ordered 10 Salmon Faverolles, 9 girls and one boy. They did not mark the boy so I hope that I got him. Here are a...

    Pleasant surprise!

    I have been missing three EEs for the last three weeks or so. I thought that may be a hawk had gotten them as I have not had any predators and there was no sign of feathers anywhere. Saturday I was at the clothesline and I heard the sweetest chirping noise that I knew was a baby chick but I...

    Help identifying bantam chicks, please!

    These chicks were purchased at TSC. They are about 4 weeks old and come from Ideal. They all have furry feet. I think this brown one is a boy! I have two of these blue colored chicks. I had a better picture but can't get it to upload. I have two of these as well. It is hard when they...

    :f I am hoping for a silkie. My husband got this out of the "assorted bantams" bin at TSC for me. I actually got six of them since you can't buy any less than that. This is the only one with black legs, black beak and fuzz around the eyes. Thanks for the help.

    Chick hatching in coop and it is freezing

    I have a chick hatching out in my coop and it is freezing already. Since I am in central Texas I do not have a completely enclosed coop. My hens and roosters do just fine with this but I am concerned about the chick. Of course it is in a wooden nest box with mom so I am hoping she will keep it...

    sick RIR pullett

    My RIR pullet that is about 7 months old is acting sick. I noticed about three days ago that she was holding her tail down. This morning she did not come out of the coop and was very easy to catch. I have put her in a small cage away from the other pullets. She is not laying down at all. She is...

    two roosters in one cage?

    I have two Red Sex Link roosters that I need to separate out of my flock. My roosters will not leave my ducks alone. Today I found the ducks hiding in the corner of the barn. They are scared to be with the flock now. I do not think there are enough chickens to go around for four roosters so I am...
