    Once you started pulling fish you'd forget the cold

    @Jessimom update please!


    Hi - Thank you so much for checking!!! The consensus seems to be that it's ascites, and pretty much un-curable. We can try to drain the fluid to keep her comfortable, but not much else. She isn't laying anymore, but does still eat and drink. She just needs help getting up and down off the perch at night. We are all trying to get the courage to drain it (or find someone willing). She is the boss in the coop, so nobody bothers her.

    what bator are you thinking Billy? have you asked on CL and put a want ad? or checked your local on FB and posted for one. I would, ask for one in the farming section, not in the wanted section @rIrs roost

    The chick you asked about is doing perfectly fine. It gets around very well. Its head is about twice the size of the other chicks. I think it might be a mix between my jersey giant and brahma. It already found a new home. I asked for updates I wasn't going to sell it, but they insisted on wanting it.

    I was told to check with Casportpony. We know it involves a syringe with a needle. It's the needle that freaks us out.....

    After I saw you suggest the farming section on CL to someone else last week, I tried, unsuccessfully, to do the same. What's the secret?
