She also is doing this thing where she stretches her neck and opens her beak, I tried to get a photo…She is full grown. What...

    December 2021 Hatch-A-Long

    1st timer here! I’m picking up a dozen F4 OE eggs tomorrow! I’ve also got a chocolate silkie sitting on 3 eggs! Silkie eggs should hatch around Dec 15. Does the 21 days for the OE eggs begin when I put into the incubator tomorrow?

    Fertilized??

    Question- does the bottom right egg look fertilized?? I have my suspicion but won’t say just yet. The reason I ask- I only have one hen laying eggs right now, my little silkie hen, and every day I’ve been taking them. Furthermore she’s molting! Then a few days later, I noticed she has gone...

    Possible hatchlings?? Help! Advice?!

    Thanks so much, yes they have been a joy to watch. And I never knew how good chicken mommas are! Aside from her squishing one, which honestly I think was a total fluke.

    Possible hatchlings?? Help! Advice?!

    Here they are; about a month old now! Compared to a newly hatched silkie. They’ve grown fast and even have their little “pants” now! We lost 2, 1 to a predator and momma squished one… 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Possible hatchlings?? Help! Advice?!

    They have come over out of curiosity, but momma put that to a stop real quick. They are a part of the flock now and even go off on their own a little bit!

    Just sent the hubby to TSC to pic up Equimax. Now I haven’t noticed worms in other poo, but I assume I treat the entire flock as I did last time? if I do need to treat the entire flock, I have 3, 2 week old silkie chick. Should I treat them? If so, how much should I give them? I also have 8...

They are in a brooder with 3 silkie chicks, 2 Russian Orloff chicks and 2 Black Langshan chicks. All are about...

    Possible hatchlings?? Help! Advice?!

    I’m sorry if I wasn’t clear and my message was confusing. I meant moving mom and 3 chicks to hen house with an attached private run for them only. As the chicks got older, I would let mom in/out for breaks. The littles would stay in that coop, themselves, once they no longer needed mom until...

    Possible hatchlings?? Help! Advice?!

    @Weeg @Chicken poppy Momma was up and out of the box today teaching the chicks how to ‘forage’. It was so cute watching her find crickets, holding them, then giving to each after calling them over. My question… at what point should I move them out of the maternity ward and into their own pen?
