    goodb ~ Welcome to the Indiana Thread!
    Since I'm still catching up on posts from being gone a few days, I'm sure there are other new names to welcome. As I notice new names while I'm catching up, I'll send them this info, too.


    Do you want to be listed on the BYC Indiana Members’ List?
    “Being a member of this thread” just means adding your screen name and flock info, which can be helpful because the list is a spreadsheet format that lets you sort the list by breed, county, or other category. It’s an easy way to find other members who have the same breed you have or who live in a nearby county, etc.

    Click on the link below my signature to view the members list. Just look at the bottom of the list page for sorting options.

    If you’d like to be added, send me a PM (personal message) by simply placing your cursor over my screen name: Mother2Hens, and you will see “Send a PM.” A personal message ensures that your info is added. Please send your screen name, county, and city. Also include the following information about each member of your flock: List each species (chicken, duck, etc.), breed (Barred Rock, etc.), is it a LF (Large Fowl) or Bantam? Quinstar (Erin) actually adds the info, so you can PM her directly, too-- whatever is the easiest for you. if you have any questions about this thread, please PM Jchny2000 (Janet) who is the founder (thread starter) of this group.

    Indiana County Map for instant member location
    If anyone would like a map of your county, like the one on my avatar, I will be happy to provide one. If someone wants a combo map and a chicken or an animal for your avatar, I can put that together for you, just PM me. When I read posts, many times I think “Now where are they from?” I look at the city and still have no idea what part of the state they’re from. The map icon with the county in red because you could quickly glance and see where the member who is posting is from. These avatars are not required-- they are just a free service if you’re interested.

    AVATAR UPDATES
    If members would like me to change the photo(s) on their avatars, just PM me. Someone might have a picture of a chick that has grown into a hen (or a roo!) and would like to update the photo or someone might like something totally different.


    BYC Indiana Google Map for detailed information
    Cluck Acres (Curtis) set up a Google Map for just us INDIANA BYC’ers. You must first log on to your Google account or make a Google account. (If you have gmail, just use your gmail password). All you have to do is go to this link....http://goo.gl/maps/UShV6 . Here are the directions. You will see the state of Indiana.. Zoom in to where you live and then click on the red button that says Edit. After you click Edit you will see a hand, blue pin point and a zig zag line on the map. Click the pin point and drag it to where you live on the map. After you have placed your pin point then click on it and you can edit your description by adding your county. If you want to change your blue pin point to another icon or upload your own then up on the right of that box click the pin point icon and choose others or upload your own icon. If anyone has problems with this feel free to ask.

    This information is submitted periodically by Mother2Hens.

    I buried an egg in the planter and it grew into a chicken!

    This works SOOOOOO much better than fooling around with incubators and all that stuff.

    So sorry to hear about pbird's tragic accident! Please forgive yourself.
    Also sad to hear about danad's horse. I hope there is info available from equine behaviorists about how to help your other horse through grieving.
    Darth~ I hope other Cornish owners can help. That's terrible that someone would sell you those for pets to raise. It's also terrible that they were bred by humans for greed with no regard for the chickens' quality of life.
    Doesn't BYC stand for Backyard Cats?
    I was out of town, but I think the discussion began with chicken treatments for fleas. When I was catching up on posts last night, I saw the word "Frontline," which I had just discussed with my veterinarian yesterday when I brought my flea-bag cat in.

    Since my post last night about fleas, there's been good input from many members about their experiences. With any treatment, "results may vary" depending on the individual creature being treated.

    In my post, I was strictly talking about Frontline for cats. And my cat's experience with the Comfortis pill for cats was great. Lionel is very happy finally being flealess.

    [​IMG]

    Lionel is examining himself in the mirror to make sure every last flea is gone and to make sure my sink is as unsanitary as possible!
    Although I hate to use chemicals, it's one of those "Do the benefits outweigh the risks?" types of situations. I think Danad posted concerns about a pet orally consume pesticides vs. skin application. Either way, the pesticide typically enters the bloodstream, just by different methods. Some pesticides adhere to the skin.
    CRSelvey posted:

    Good Post! I was at Costco the other day and bought the Kirkland brand of the Frontline and even though it seems to be working, it does not distribute like the Frontline does. It just sat in a gooey mess on my dog and cat until I brushed them out more. Now I know why it cost less and thank you for letting me know to watch for effectiveness.

    Last summer I tried Walmart's generic version of Frontline Plus called PetArmor Plus on my cats and it was not effective. I ran across this explanation online: Veterinarian Lorie Huston reports in the Pet Health Care Gazette [http://www.pet-health-care-gazette.com/2011/05/14/best-flea-treatment-for-dogs-and-cats/] that while these products do contain the same active ingredient as Frontline products, they do not have the same "translocation technology that allows the product to be spread through the skin."

    That poor egg will never be able to spell its name!
