    Besides fake eggs and golf balls, what else have you used that worked to prevent a nesting box war?

    I did have some small potatoes but when I tried them out, the girls hated them lol. Sounded like an awesome temp alternative but not for mine hehe My uncle just gave me some of his hollow golf balls and I tried mixing them: golf ball+egg in two unpopular boxes, only golf balls in one unpopular...

    Besides fake eggs and golf balls, what else have you used that worked to prevent a nesting box war?

    I'm scared of the light bulbs breaking or the white bread getting moldy/nasty. The dummy egg made out of clay is an excellent idea. Yeah, the cement is far from egg shape lol....

    I have some broken up cement that looks like rocks lol. Do they have to resemble eggs? as in roundness, smooth, and size?

    Besides fake eggs and golf balls, what else have you used that worked to prevent a nesting box war?

    I'm trying to deter my girls from favoring one nesting box and I've read that this can be prevented using fake/ceramic eggs or golf balls but I have neither! If I don't have to buy some, what else can be used that is just as effective? That's if I have it readily available lol. If I don't, I'd...

    Is it possible to deter the egg song during early hours?

    First time chicken owner and our girls have started laying since 12/12 and boy are they loud! Especially our salmon faverolle. Personally, I don't mind it but my dad does sometimes and I'm scared our neighbors will eventually (idk if they know for sure we have them in the first place). We're not...

    Is lemon grass safe for quails and/or chickens?

    We have lemon grass that has dried up/died from the weather and I'm wondering if it's safe to use around quails and/or chickens in terms of bedding? The quails tend to kick their pine shavings out of their ground coop's entrances and I used to use leftover hay as a barrier to prevent that (and...

    Crop issue? Quail spit up water, lethargic, and dropped wings

    I see! I live in FL and where i live exactly the lowest it's gotten so far is 49 F. Other quails are still not showing the same symptoms so it might've been an isolated case. Still keeping an eye on them all though.

    Crop issue? Quail spit up water, lethargic, and dropped wings

    I'll keep a close eye on the others. i hope it's that cheap but even if i wanted to i can't! Found out while I was at work my mom put the body in the freezer and I have work tomorrow and the day after so I won't have time to do it myself and I know she won't want to so i think it's impossible...

    Crop issue? Quail spit up water, lethargic, and dropped wings

    Don't know how old. Don't know is she was the older quails or the young batch. We had a young batch still eating 28-30% (5-7 weeks old) that wasn't ready to be mixed in with the older quails (4-5 months old) but my parents went ahead against what I said and mixed them and I couldn't tell them...

    Crop issue? Quail spit up water, lethargic, and dropped wings

    Quails are eating purina flock raiser crumble and occasional fresh fruits/vegetables or seeds on the side while avoiding any parts toxic like apple seeds. Set up consists of coop and run on the ground. Coop is about 2'x3'3' and run is about 4'x6'x10' (may be larger actually). Coop has pine...

    Crop issue? Quail spit up water, lethargic, and dropped wings

    While in the quail run, I noticed one of the female quails had dropped wings and was closing her eyes a lot and walking very slowly. I gently picked her up and she spat out/threw up water which I could assume at first she had a little hiccup with her crop. I also saw her poop but it was white...

    Finally have eggs! Breed of chickens and who laid what?

    so that's a cuckoo maran! my girls look just like that. i was confused with barred rocks and reading that barred rock hens had that leg coloration as opposed to yellow and their eggs being a cream color so when i saw brown eggs I was like huh?? and the extra protective coating makes sense upon...

    Finally have eggs! Breed of chickens and who laid what?

    I have 8 chickens in which 4 are 5-6 months old and the rest are 4 months old. I'm pretty sure the younger 4 are easter eggers but I'm a bit confused as to what the 4 older ones are especially after I found some eggs this week. My mom got them all randomly from TS a month or so apart. In the...
