Can you refresh my memory...do the welsumer's have feathered feet?
Welsummers don't have feathered feet in the meyer catalog.
I'm ordering some production layers from Meyer. They are hatching on the 23rd of this month. The soonest I could get the production deal. Anyone near me want to add a chick or two and save on shipping. I think my shipping will increase by $2 for up to the next 25 chicks. Sure beats paying just over $33 for small order shipping. Send me a PM if you want to add to my order.
Nope. Just plain yellow chicken feet. The females are colored very similarly to a light brown leghorn. If you look back at pics of Pipd's Whiri, they have the same color, just not the big floppy comb (of which I am very jealous). Eggs are dark brown, but not as dark as a maran. Mine lay about 5 each a week.
I had no idea basic h could be used in this way. I had the same bottle for at least a couple of years as it lasts forever but I'm finally out. Looks like its time to get some more!
A few weeks ago I bought a new 7 gallon waterer so DH and I wouldn't have to carry the smaller waterers we'd been using back and forth, up and down the hill in our yard all the time. The first time DH went to refill the new waterer there were mosquitoes inside of it that flew out and attacked him when he opened it up. We've now refilled it several times and each time there was a new batch of mosquitoes in it. Any suggestions for how to keep the mosquitoes from making a home in it? Some kind of additive for the water maybe?
juile0477- Here are some pics of my girl as a chick and at about 4 months old
cooking oil ~ it will float and make a skimming covering to keep the bugs out of the water. I would add it slowly to make sure to use as little as possible, not because it would hurt the chickens just to save money.
would adding ACV deter the mosquitoes as well?
ha! They are almost identical! Thanks for the pics. Did the girls turn out to be decent layers?
Ya they are. your welcome. And they havent started laying yet. I am thinking because they are mixed with brahmas and they are slow at maturing.
