I bet that will be pretty!
Good morning all. Rain,sleet ,& snow yesterday. Went to Running yesterday got chick starter, pine shavings (for big bird side) stall fresh for under shavings it really really helps with odors and ammonia smell & buildup...........argghh bycc at it again
@campingshaws bet they keep you on your toes! I have 5 hens and I'm thinking of getting a couple more, but 53.....wow!!
Plus the two dogs, cat, and two kids: 6 and 3.
It looks way worse on paper.
GRANNY DID IT !!!!!!! I have a serama baby ! One more piped. day 24?
That's fantastic! Are these from home eggs or shipped ones?
You really need a camera! I want to seeeeee!!!
Good news for you Granny! Sucks you can't take a picture though.
Before I go back and read what I've missed, I could use some help, if anyone has a second! The chicks are starting to have yucky poops. Their poop was fine until a couple of hours ago, and now it's runny and stinky. I thought maybe it was a one time thing from one chick, but now it's both of them every time they poop. I have a picture, but BYC isnt sending me to the mobile site for some reason so I can't upload it. I can figure something out and put it on my computer if necessary. Background: chicks are one week old today, eating Scratch and Peck non medicated starter, chick grit sprinkled on top (as per the instructions on the feed), they have a traditional waterer and a nipple waterer, brooder is sand with puppy pads that I change 2-3 times per day, and they have an eco glow heater that they are in and out of. They are acting normally, eating and drinking, no weird chirping, have not been outside. My kids put a stick from the yard in there because they thought the chicks needed a toy, not sure if that could introduce something nasty to them. I can post this somewhere else if I need to, but I'm not sure where to post it, the baby chick section? Or does anyone have advice?
Lol granny, we need pics and descriptions!
From now on I will always assume granny has gone and done it until told otherwise!
your feeding what? I feed mine from day one to death flock raiser crumbles. I dont medicate unless they have cocci and they never have. With crumbles they dont need grit either. and the stick should be fine but they are young for that as well. Is the puppy pads on top of the sand? they are not eating that are they? I use a wood floor with some feed scattered around . clean up is easy. they are past the point of worrying about splay leg . not that they need a slippery floor, they dont . I think you have the wrong food.
