I have a polish roo that is about 22 weeks old. I have 25 RIR same age that really like to peck his head which make it start bleeding and they wont leave him alone after that. Ive tryed pine tar and about every thing eles and notting seems to work.
Any body got any Ideal what might stop them...
I think about doing another batch after this one. I have to keep them in the shed do to all the coyotes,coons and all other things that like to eat chickens. I keep them good and clean (not really that hard ).
Well as most of you know we are going in to winter and is getter colder faster this...
I have a 8x12 chicken house with a dirt floor i wish i could keep the dirt floor. but it is just so dusty mostly because the chickens dig holes in the floor.
so i was wanting to know if i could just put about 2 inches of ag lime down to keep the dirt and the dust were it belongs

I have 18 week old RIR that have not started to lay i was wanting to know whne should they be put on laying mesh. They are all on flock rasier rite now mostly because i feed it to the meat birds.
I have 4 week xrocks which are doing find but i still have the heat light on them all the time. Thy spend most of the day outside in the run with the feeder and water and what ever bugs they can find.
But the temp are getting down in the low 40s high 30s at nite and the high temp during the day...
I went and put my meat birds xrocks on the scale and i was woundering if they should weigh a bit more. thet about about 4 weeks old . Ive be feed 12 on off 12

hens about 3-3.5 lbs
I know this has been asked before but i cant seem to find any thing about it. when will that start laying eggs there are RIR and 18 weeks old. I guess I just in a hurry to start getting eggs is all.
I got some xrock meat birds and they make a sound like a sneeze but it not loud you have to be listening to hear it.

i hope this is the rite room for a question like this.
