    Shipped eggs, Air cells, and Hatch-a-long

    I recently bought 18 eggs from a Dutch bantam breeder. I have never hatched shipped eggs before. Some of the air cells are "saddled" and others are not attached. I have read that you have to put these eggs in egg cartons on day 18. But what about beforehand? Do they need a different humidity...

    Purpose Of Comb/Wattles?

    This ive been wondering this for a while- So I know roosters have combs/wattles to show of to females. But there must be other reasons. Ive have kinda a guess that it helps realise heat during hot weather. But im not sure. What do you experts know?

    Hatching Versus Purchasing

    I wasn't sure if this went with Hatching or Raising chicks, so please bear with me if this thread is wrongly placed. My turkens have never successfully hatched eggs before, so any addition to the flock was purchased as day-old chicks. My girl was broody and my roo was rather twitterpated this...

    Breeding Silkie's head-hole off?

    Hello. I'm planning to get silkies. I absolutely love them but I'd be lying if I said the hole in their heads didn't bother me. It just seems like a way too vulnerable trait for an animal to have. My current knowledge is that ALL silkies have a hole, more or less and the crest gets fuller if...

    Turkeys not eating in summer

    My turkeys haven’t been eating much if at all the past week. They seem perfectly normal but I worry about them not eating. Is this normal? Is there something I can feed them in the summer that they’ll eat?

    Help identify this snake?

    I stepped outside in the front porch and found this little guy slithering around. I can tell it’s not venomous or bad but I just wanted to know what type of snake it is? Does it pose a threat to my chickens? I have 3 very small hens (one is about the size of a pigeon). I got a few pics of him...
