And occasionally use it to calm my dog down if she gets too hyped up to be otherwise calmed.
Hi! First time chicken people here! Mt babies are about a week old, except for Martha who we got yesterday to round out our flock. I've been browsing and can't wait to read more!
Here are the ladies (minus Martha) last Friday
Of course we have pictures! [/IMG]
Thanks for the responses on flipping her! I kinda feel bad for doing it now. Since I've stopped, she just gets in my lap and lies on her side and dozes. Definitely my little lap chicken
We are loving these little guys.
So my babies are a month old, and a couple of them are getting hen pecked. I thought we had bloody poop at first till I saw their butts. One has lost almost all her little tail feathers and another looks like they have just started pulling and pecking at hers. I think I know who the bully is, but I don't know what I need to do to help my girls that have been pecked and are bleeding and to stop the bully hen! Help!!
Get some Blu-kote or Blue Lotion from your feed store, and spray or paint it on the fresh wounds. Then verify who the cannibal is and start in on a regimen of discipline. I describe how to go about this in an article I wrote. It's linked below under "Articles by Azygous" - the one on aggressive chicks.
I just love blue Kote it is seriously the best stuff, just never on a cat (you only make that mistake once)... I was going to ask if I could use it on the chickens, good to know!
Here is my girl Claire. She come to my hand as soon as I reach into the brooder. She LOVES to be held. I adore her.
