    poult hatchlings and 'flip' over

    How do hatcheries manage the flipping that seems so common in turkey hatchlings? When they fall over on their back, so frequently there are those who can't turn back over. I do wonder how hatcheries with hundreds if not thousands of poults manage this issue. Or do they not have the issue? (broad...

    large gallbladder issue, white droppings in 1 wk. turkey poult.

    A turkey poult from a feed store had white droppings. It died. Upon inspection, I found the gallbladder was HUGE. Googling revealed white poops can be caused by a blocked bile duct. Any experience with this and the cause? It was one week old direct from feed store on half cracked corn and half...

    What kind of chickens are these?

    They are pure breeds and the eggs came from a hatchery. But I got the chicks from someone else. She bought the eggs of unknown breeds. Is the black hen (with some brownish streaks in neck) an Australorp? what about this rooster? Thanks.

    Lost my genuine Dutch bantam rooster, sad

    Here is a picture of him and it does not do him justice. I don't show chickens, but he is originally out of someone's show stock. This info was in my notes: (from Mary Hoyt-Kristy and Jean) Someone may know this 'line'. So just asking you to cry with me! I do believe I know who took my little...

    how to judge best of the group of newly hatched PURE CORNISH

    Hatched out some dark cornish. Thought I'd keep a few. Given they change as they grow and then change again and again likely, could someone experienced tell me what to look for to pick the best ones? Such as squatty looking body? Shorter legs? Wide heart shaped back? Head? I thought too, that if...

    Little Giant incubator piece of crap

    Some time ago I read a web site of someone who recommended the Little Giant over the hovabator incubator. I bought one. It has had to be replaced once already as it was very unreliable in its temperature control. Later I bought the turner and it is less than 2 months old and it now is making a...

    what sex are these two?

    I thought the red one was a hen, but I saw it step on that barred rock like it was a young rooster. They are 12 weeks old. The red one is a Barred rock/White Laced Red cornish cross. The barred one is a barred rock crossed with unknown.

    too many WLR Cornish pretty soon!

    Thought I’d post some of my chickens here. Likely they won’t suit the show people since they are not show stock, but I want meat and eggs and a project of my own. I don’t show. I am hatching WLR Cornish at present and since it seems they are hard to find, it is hard to just eat her eggs! One...
