    I got 78% cockerels out of my hatches this last summer [​IMG] such a bummer i need more girls [​IMG]
    Quote:The listing is for 10, these are the 4 bigger ones. They are monsters compared to the little ones (all in the same brooder), so I had to remove them so I could see the itty-bitties [​IMG]

    Of course, these 4 are all cockerels [​IMG]

    Well I had a scare last night....

    All was well in Seramaville, when suddelnly my daughters say "Mom, there is blood in the food bowl" of my little pair of seramas, Gordon & Hedwig, that are my indoor birds, then I hear "Mom, there is blood all over the perch, .....OMG mom there is something wrong with Gordon, he has blood all over him!!!!"

    I go rushing to them, and here is my little white mottled cockerel Gordon, blood on his mouth, big gob of bloody feathers on his chest, feet covered in blood. [​IMG]

    I was panicked. Then looking at his feet, I see he had ripped the entire nail off of his middle toe. All that was left was the bloody inner core of the nail. [​IMG]

    We grabbed the styptic powder, and mashed it all over his toe, which helped for a minute, while I checked over the rest of his body. Everything else seemed okay, the bloody feathers on his chest was from him pulling up his foot, however he's still bleeding.

    Thank God for my wonderful friends, Cara & Fabian, they always seem to know exactly what to do for animal emergencies!!! They suggested we try to cauderize the vein using my husbands soldering iron.

    After we did that, I sat with Gordon on the sofa for an hour or two to make sure the bleeding had stopped, and put him to bed in a little carrier, on some soft towels. I was so afraid he'd bleed to death over night!

    My daughter found the toenail, and it was completely intact, and hollow down the middle. He tore it right off.

    This morning, he seems perky, and well. His toe is swollen, and sore. But he is alive, that's what matters most. [​IMG]
