    Quote:Just a broad-spectrum like tetracycline. You can get those foil packs at TSC or the co-op for like $5. Good thing to keep around just in case. If they share water with laying hens keep her and maybe a buddy seperated for a couple days until she's done with meds.

    I will see if I can get this at one of my local feed stores. I don't have a TSC around here. [​IMG]

    Through a series of strange circumstances (read: OMG! You have AURACANAS, TOO!???! while buying other chicks), I acquired two. I call them Daphne and Velma. I don't know what you would call their color, though. I'll take pics tomorrow. Both have the most beautiful feathers!

    Update: All 3 are normal as of this evening; the one with the closed eye now has them both open all the time. She ate, stared down my Red Star, and tried to pile on top of her siblings on the roost. Crazy as usual...I hope tomorrow her eye problem doesn't return. I will still buy some tetracycline anyway if I could get my hands on it.

    Mrs. Fluffy Puffy, do you only have girls left?

    Quote:I think so, but I may have one boy. My dog, Gpysy, killed one of them. Before that I knew I had a trio, but now I don't know? [​IMG]

    Today she seems fine? [​IMG] Must have been a slight injury....
    Thanks, BuffyGRL. I don't have room either but I still want more. Must fight the urge! I think I may have one more boy, I don't know. It could be a very masculine pullet but I doubt it. I saw one of them today picking leaves off that tree and letting it fall to the ground, while the other one ate them up.

    Quote:You want to watch out for single combs, feather quality, and type. The lavenders are still very "Orp-y", and you want to move your flock away form that.

    This is my second-to-last batch of wheatens for the year (for myself) (i hope) and some of my projects. We may not like the weather we're having but I have had the best hatches lately. Not being shipped eggs probably has something to do with it too.

    Cute bunch! Its been pretty hot here. I only kept the light on my chicks for the first few days. After that they've been fine with out it. I do have a building I use as a brooder outside though so I don't have to worry about inside temps. Mine are now almost 3 weeks old and made the move to an outside coop. No losses and all are doing great. I cant wait to see them as adults.
