    I hate when things happen like that, every day seems to be a challenge. I usually find the stinker the next morning, wishing you best of luck.

    Is there any kind hearted soul in the bloomington area that has or knows where I can get food grade DE? We have a sickly bird that isn't responding to TLC well. We are starting down a list of treatments as we don't know the ailment. We're first time chicken folk.

    She's lethargic (better now with twice daily solitary feedings of warm mash/yogurt), wants to sit a lot, wobbly on her legs (spreads her wings to catch herself) and her tail is down most of the time. 17ish weeks old and hasn't started laying. Solid poop with a white cap but somewhat dark green (we let them free range some each day as well).

    We've ordered some from online but it won't be here for 6 days :(

    We just want her to be well. Heart drops everytime she loses her balance and plops on her butt. :(

    I can't believe I'm actually trying to help with a tech type question. I am no expert at this stuff by any means. When I click the 'more' button on the right side of the reply, area, thats when I get the A with the under line and my color is back. It pops up with the color choices then. Maybe it doesn't work with your device? I use Windows Vista on my home PC.

    most if the ones i want to get blood tested are not laying yet. You have to get them blood tested to shoe, im actually not sure what they test for but do not it is required. Not very many are certified to blood test. I will just contact the person i already knew.
    thank you an suprisingly out of the years i have raised chickens this is the oddest egg i have seen. I have mever got a soft shelled one ir anything

    Thank you. I haven't seen her yet, but I'm still hoping she will show up today. Had a long talk with my little ones today.
    I had two that got wobbly and everyone told me to make sure to put some apple cider vinegar in the water too (with mother). Still not sure what Mother is, but I know its in Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar. Now I use it all the time. Good luck with your chicken.

    PS, you can find Bragg products in the Natural Foods section of most grocery stores.
