    CCM or Australorp chicks?

    I've never had either, and was told it could be one or the other from the egg shipper. Thanks for looking! Or do I have one of each? We had a confusing hatch (at night when asleep) with breeds we have never had before. Lol

    Going to set a trap for another coon....

    We are going ahead and setting a trap for the OTHER coon tonight. I'll post a quick "we got it" tonight if it's caught. But I'll NOT post what we're gonna do with it! Lol (Sorry MODS for the other locked thread, it was not my intention to start anything).

    Looky what we caught tonight!

    Something for the past three nights has been getting in our run through the top (which is chicken wired). It was getting into the outside feeder and making a mess. We double and triple checked the openings between the runs of wire, making sure there were not any gaps big enough for a snake to...

    Fix for our muddy runs!

    Finally! Dh and DD worked for 2 days running slabs of wood around the bottom of our runs and filling them with wood chips from a neighbor that runs his own sawmill at his barn. The wood chips are 8-10 inches deep. DD now only has to take a garden fork and turn the chips over occasionaly. It...

    This was sooo weird! :D **UPDATED with PICS**

    My DD bought some guinea eggs last week from a man at our local stock yards. Long story short he didn't have the eggs on him just selling adults that day, so he offered to have us follow him home and get some. Which we did. He went to his barn and came back with a dozen. We never thought to ask...

    Question about coloring??

    My DD bought some shipped eggs (12). One has just hatched and the other is pipped, these are the only 2 that made it to hatch day. Out of the 12 one egg was more green, not that that has any bearing at all. Lol My question is, they were supposed to be blue, but this chick is NOT blue. Can...

    Avian Necropsy ***UPDATE***

    I had a hen (ISIS) sent off on Thursday that died the day before. UofK is the university she was sent to, and the diagnosis was "Eggbound". I did all of the things mentioned on this site to try and have her relax enough to release an egg, as in a warm bath, oil on bread, oil dripped in beak...

    Avian necropsy, anyone sent off a chicken before??

    I would like some info on how things are done. I had a hen who passed away just under an hour ago and want to send her to the nearest University that does this. I'm just wondering what all it entails. I have put her in the freezer for now, I didn't know if she needed to be kept (fresh)?? Thanks...

    de-worming, but don't think worms are my problem NOW!

    Here is some history of WHY I thought maybe I should deworm...BTW: (I haven't seen any worms in their feces since I wormed them.) Last weekend had one of my FAVORITE chickens, a modern, die from the only symptoms I could tell were: Ruffled up feathers Skinny She had no drainage of any kind...
