my pekins have started laying and i have collected some eggs. they won't sit, i know, and my incubator is full of chicken eggs. i was wondering if anyone has used their chickens to hatch their duck eggs before. just curious since i'll be sticking them under my broody hen tonight.
i know we've talked about this before but since there are more people perusing this section, i thought i'd bring it up again.
i have a friend raising the red bros and the other day she informed me that the last two weeks, she was going to feed them straight scratch (which is more than just...
i'm not sure though. i let them range during the day and so sometimes my chickens go into their coop. but i coulda swore i saw one of them sitting on it this morning and get off of the egg when i went to open their coop.
this is my first time keeping ducks so i'm not really sure how to tell...
they came all safe and sound. i have several that looked a little listless but i'm hoping the vitamin water will perk them up. he put the 100 in two boxes of 50 batches each. the bottom batch was a lot happier than the top batch. gave them some feed and they were busy eating it up when i left.
i consider myself a backyard enthusiast, but have over 200 birds and when my meaties come, will have 300. my friend who recently bought an egg business bought the business to supply local restaurants and neighbors with fresh eggs. she doesn't consider herself one of the "big guys" but does have...
we've been thinking about getting feed mixed for us. evans feed down the road sells layer feed, but recommends that scratch and oyster shell be supplemented with the feed. further reading shows that it's also got animal fat which of course, they can't tell us what animal fat it is. evans makes...
my feed went up another dollar!!! :mad: purina crumbles has gone up another $1 to $14.95 a bag. i can get 75 cents off a bag if i buy 10 or more. $1 off a bag if i buy 40 or more.
and here i was celebrating gas was now $3.59 a gallon at buckeys.
last night, i couldn't find my FR boy. i have two boys and 4 girls that are going on 4-5 months. one of the boys lives with a couple of the girls in the large pen with the rest of the free range flock. the other boy and 6 hens (some sex-link, some FRs) live in the open pasture in a tractor with...

i'm wondering if i just need a better knife? is there a way to get in there and slice the neck bone off? i understand how to take the feet off at the knees, but for some reason i can't figure where to put the knife in to cut the neck bone off.
i know this is OT for this section of byc, but i feel a little closer to ya'll on the "meat birds etc" since i'm on here everyday.

so i was given a cornish X roo and he seems to be surviving well. (knock on wood) i've been feeding him with the other birds and he's walking around, acting a little like a chicken. anyway, i was thinking about using him as a rooster when he got old enough, and putting him in with some FR hens...
