oh, Its the first one. they are pretty. are these yours? do they mature fast or lay large eggs?
Oh if she was top hen I doubt it was a peck.
auugh. Gross. I have never heard of such a thing. How old were the poor chicks? Does he think the males have boy parts or something? Crazy.
So you got chocolate. Chocolate what?
the partridge rock looks chocolate . I think he was doing a poor attempt at vent sexing. the males do have a little bump inside the cloaca but they are only sexed when first born by very experienced trained personal. they sure dont try and stick their finger in there. they spread it open and push down to make it come out eough to see. You have to be very careful doing this or it can push their insides out. like a prolapse.
Oh duh, you got partridge rocks. I have chicken envy!
The feed store I use is very good at taking care of the chicks. They are kept in brooders in a special room, people can't handle them, and certainly no one pokes their rears!
Next town over got a TSC a few years back. Almost made me cry seeing all the pasty butts. When I told the store clerks (kids really), they didn't know anything about it. To their credit, they called a few people over and got a quick lesson. I didn't go back to see if they followed through. Hope so. They seemed like they wanted to do the right thing.
Had to stay the night away from home and didn't get back til noon. I thought FOR SURE that I would have chicks, or pips at the very least. Nope. Nada. Just still, quiet eggs.
It's only Day 21. It's only Day 21. It's only Day 21. It's only Day 21. It's only Day 21.
