    But it's an easter egger. It will lay pretty colored eggs. I heard that roosters lay double-yolked eggs.

    How many CC's do you apply to the average size hen?

    Hi all! I'm back on here again. I just got done reading 1,000 or so pages! I will have to post pics of my ducks and my friend's chickens and ducks. I know I will forget what I read so what's new with everyone?

    Looking at the pics, i really don't see any roos either. Hope you get a few days rest in too!

    Quoting myself since its just fate, seems like these things always happen. Jeckel, my guinea cock and Quaseys mate, was taken sometime very early this morning, my guess is the fox. Some feathers spread out and lots of blood. a corner of their housing it actually pulled apart and drug him out of about a 2 inch gap, a few inches high.The wood was old but this was no raccoon. A dog or coon normally leaves remains. The guinea just go crazy around that fox and would taunt it. It saw the chance to get even. Other thought is coyote, they get very bold if hungry. and was my initial thought. My other pair Prissy and Hyde, and Quasey appear to be ok, but they are mourning him terribly. The boys are fearless and very protective of the hens, so i just know he marched right over and attacked the animal! RIP Jeckel.

    Ugh, that stinks. They are pretty hard to get rid of without a lot of hands on treatment I guess. I cannot believe I haven't had them yet since the birds are out most of the afternoon.
    In the main coop, I have an old truck cap. Under it, the ground is well broken up like powder. I rake it out often and sprinkle sevin dust in there.
    I love to watch my turkey hen, she is so comical dust bathing! The tom, I have been calling Buddy, wont fit! I need to get straw bales and raise it up so he can join the fun too.
    Aw, John, get some rest and mending time in.
    I am doing several Tuesday hopefully. Youngest DD will be at school and everyone else will be gone. 1 turkey and at least 6 roos.
    One pullet is if she pecks me one more time, she is flat out hateful.Very mean to the new chicks coming out to the main coop too.
