    Ccccc- M2H had those really cute tags for us to print. But I don't have a way to do that.

    M2H- milk snake!!! I had one here this spring when we plowed a field for alfalfa. It's a good snake, goes after barn mice. Speaking of mice.....saw a rat in one of my coups last night!!!!eeeeeewwwwwhhhh!!!! New warfare to begin!!

    If anyone is interested in one of those dog igloo dog houses - I have a medium sized one that I will give away. I don't need it any more and have been reluctant to sell it on craigslist (not worth worrying about the crazies!). Free to a good home! :)

    I need to get pictures. I can't really tell. I did google and saw pics, but most pics are really bad cases. She just has a couple raised like where her foot bends, like where the ankle would be. I may just treat them all to be sure rather than sorry

    I'm not sure where in Indiana you are, but close to me we have the amish. They will kill and butcher a chicken for you. Perhaps they will just kill it for you so you can take her home to bury her. Here is like $2.25-2.50 per bird from what I've been told. Might be another option for you. If you are northern Indiana, I have a number to a guy who did my neighbors turkeys, PM me and I'll give you his number.

    Half of mine hide the other half stay out to forage. And yes they do look bad when they are wet!

    I'd agree. Looks like an eastern milk snake.

    I find dead mice in my run all the time. My rooster kills them and will play with them for awhile than leaves them lay.

    I charge $5 for day olds but if I have extras, I always throw in a few for free (of course mine are bantams)

    When buying hatching eggs always make sure you ad shipping. Some people look cheaper, but ask more shipping. I charge $40(which includes shipping) for 12+, but once again if I have them I've sent as many as 2 dozen eggs, some will send you 13 eggs and some will send lots of extras.

    Paul is a great and honest guy, but there are breeders right here in Indiana, why not buy from them. Paul bought a lav. cockrel from my daughter for his breeding program, So He thinks she has great birds!!!

    The flailing around is the worse part for us as humans , and though I tell myself it is just nerves, It still gets to me, I've used the starter fluid method and the broom stick. I've also just picked a few up and wrung their necks, It is one of the hardest things for me to do. No matter what method we use, some times we just have to get over it and do it, At least that is what I tell myself. LOL !!

    People even use the broom stick method for rabbits,

    I'd be interested depending on how far you are from me??

    I'm located off 421 (Michigan Rd) and 47 - between Sheridan and Lebanon. I work in Indy so I could also bring it to work one day if that helps. I am also in search of reasonably priced horse hay and may be making a trip out your way in the next month. I figured it could be useful to someone as a shelter! I have no need for it any more!

    I hope they aren't also, but you are in the right place. There are several people on this thread who are able to tell you sex by color pattern when their feathers start coming in. I'm not one of them, but I do like to guess. After the chicks were about 8 weeks old, the worrying lessened, but not by much sorry! around 5-7 weeks we started watching out for Cocci and were so relieved with that time frame passed. I have tons of extra medicine for that if you live somewhere near us (if you find you need it). The bag was about $20 but I'm not kidding, there is enough in the bag for at least a hundred birds, not the average backyard owner. I'd mail it to someone if I didn't think I'd get flagged for mailing strange white powders[​IMG] .

    Good luck with your chicks. Everyone here will help you out. They are the best!
