    Went out and candled tonight. We threw 3 clear silkie eggs out, but the other 9 were all developing and moving like crazy!! We even saw a beak and a little foot through the shell. SO cute. Lavender hates it when we take her eggs, but now we know how many we have so far. Hopefully everything goes well until next tuesday. [​IMG]

    I think I'd try some duramycin-10 in their water. It's cheap antibiotic and they sound pretty sick. it's worth a shot. The only draw back is the withdrawal
    Period for eggs is 21 days but for meat its much shorter for some reason. You'd have to look it up to verify but i think its only like four days. Strange I know.

    I would get a good antibiotic. Tylan 50 is pretty effective with respiratory issues. I don't know whether RK or TSC carry anything besides the injectible, but it comes in other forms. I'm partial to the injectible. Last fall I had a bout with respiratory problems. I caged the birds in my enclosed sun porch and ran a vaporizor with Oxine in the water. I don't know of any place locally that carries Oxine; I ordered through Amazon. Most poultry supply houses list it now also.
    Good luck with your chickens!

    Thanks for all the rabbit advice! I figured there would be some people here who have had pet rabbits, i appreciate the help.

    I still don't know the exact breed we will get but probably either a full size or mini lop. I think the living indoors %100 of the time thing is not going to work, but supervised inside time should be ok. I think a large cage/kennel in the climate controlled garage will be the best idea. With an outdoor hutch for good weather.

    Well I have what is probably a dumb question but I candled the eggs under my broody hen tonight she's been sitting on them for a week. If they are fertile what should I be seeing? They all looked like they have a dark mass in them except for one it looked like it was clear. Does anyone candle with a flashlight, if so what type/size?
    On a different subject I have a new layer today. I found this in the nesting box.The second picture is it compared to one of my other eggs. It looks like one of my banty eggs but they all lay white eggs so I know it wasn't one of them. It had to come from a slw, glw, bpr, rir or nh. Any idea which one lays an egg this dark? Thanks for any help.
