Has anyone had a chance to check their barns for some old formula? Next time you are at your feed store, could you ask them if they have any old Tucker Milling Non-GMO chick starter in the back? I am super grateful!
I am on the hunt for some old Tucker Milling Non-GMO feed. Does anyone have any laying around?
We are doing some research and need to run some tests on their old formula. I only need about a quart bag size of the feed (if the bag is unopened that would be even better, but I'll...
It's very saddening for me to say that I recently decided to depopulate my flock. I made the mistake of taking some chickens from a neighbor and brought MG into my flock. One by one they started getting sick and we contacted the Poultry Lab in our state. They mailed us some...
Hello, thank you for your response. That is what we plan to do. We plan to kill our entire flock and start over. After reading many forum posts on here about MG, I discovered that there are some people who have MG positive flocks and have chosen to treat them and keep them anyway. We wanted...
These chickens all have names and stories and are wonderful otherwise healthy birds. We have treated them with antibiotics but they tested positive for MG and MS. I made the mistake of buying chickens from a neighbor and now our entire flock is infected.
We lost many chickens due to this...
We have a turkey that just hatched 2 babies, and we want to get some chicks in the mail (or we are willing to travel a bit - we are near Chattanooga, TN), so that she can raise them all together.
Please let me know if you have any chicks you can mail to us. We are looking for heritage breed...
There were not many other symptoms, no deformed eggs, no purple combs, and none of the others were sneezing or wheezing.
One of them did have runny poop. Should I treat them with anything? If it is respiratory, how do you suggest treating that?
I offered them some diatomaceous...
I made the mistake of buying chickens from a man down the road who I'd never bought from. He sold me 10 laying age chickens: 7 red star and 3 buffs who seemed to be pretty healthy when I got them. Shortly after getting them home, they started dying. I've had chickens for 7...
I am looking for one or two Bourbon Red Turkey Hen of laying age or some fertilized eggs that I can put in my incubator.
We are also in the market for some laying hens:
Wyandotte (SLW or GLW)
Rhode Island Reds
or we are open to other breeds...
I can vouch for PoultryLady. I have bought many chicks and turkeys from her. She has healthy babies, clean coops, and great breeds! She also basically has an open door and is very welcoming. I will continue to buy my chicks from her! Speaking of..... got any chicks?
Okay, so I was wrong....it's a peahen (show's how much i know).
I put out bread, chicken feed, scratch, lettuce, and water. I tried to create a feast for her.
I left her alone for a couple hours, and went out to check and saw her walking around in the tall hay by the coop. I turned around...
I went out this morning to check on the chickens and let them out of their coop.
I heard something loud moving on the tin roof of the chicken coop. We've been having a lot of pest problems, so thinking it was a possum or racoon, I ran outside to see what it could be.
It was a peacock!
