I bought 20 keets yesterday and all were healthy and running around. This morning one is hanging to itself has gunky eyes and just wants to lay around. I have separated it. What does it sound like and what should I do.
I have 6 barred rock chicks that are nine weeks old. one of them seem to be listless and has poop on her.i cleans it off last night but it was back this morning.all the others are find what does it sound like it could be and what can I do. she used to be fine
I had my mom let my hens out today around 10. When I got hone at 5 I did a head count and noticed I was missing one. I found her gutted under the nesting box and whatever it was pulled her out of the nesting box. Everything else was intact but her guts were missing what does it sound like could...
I have seen on here you can use a heating pad as an alternative to a heat lamp. If I decide to do this what setting should it be on for chicks 3-4 weeks old. Is there anything special I need to put over it and will pine shavings hurt it.
I really want to hatch out some eggs since i have a new EE Rooster but none of my hens seem to want to go broody and im not sure how to do the incubator deal. is there anyway to get a hen to go broody or will i have to buy a incubator?
I have a jungle fowl that has gone broody. I have them in the pen with my standard chinkens. How many eggs do yall suppose she could sit on to have any success of hatching out? i want her to sit on my easters eggs to hatch them out.
I am wanting to hatch some eggs due to having a broody hen. The thing is that i dont get home frow work until late and i didnt know if she could sit on some eggs that were cool but still from today. I wasnt sure if they would hatch if there were cool.
