    NOPE never a dumb question! "pullet egg" or some people call it a "fart egg" odd sizes or shapes, its common for a new layer.

    Its true. And a drake can kill a chicken hen if he mates her, internal injuries. Rooster to a duck is not as dangerous, but the spurs can harm the duck. I have my scovies/pekin in my big coop until my goose/duck coop is finished and 1 muscovy drake, but he is too slow and fat to catch a chicken [​IMG]I am still looking for a pekin drake, but now it can wait til spring.
    oh no I am so sorry. Hope you find your missing turkey.

    Sounds like your ladies are doing it as a team! I do hear that happening a lot. The chicks will be well protected. [​IMG] sending good hatching vibes!

    Wheezy- I had an EE go broody and everyone added to her eggs then my Cochin decided to help. Mine like yours would switch the eggs and even sides . Finally had 1 hatch and the others were starting to stink so I cleaned out the nest. Between them I think there were 20 eggs or so!! But both took care of the baby!! And both didnt lay for over a month!! This babie has been with the flock the whole time and none of the others have bothered her. She's about 3/4 grown now.

    Dog saga- well I think tomorrow's the day! We've tried everything to get my Gracie to pass whatever she ate. So unless she passes it before 8:30 she's off to surgery!! After the recent horse issues and the dog attack and now this...... I'm just about worn out!!

    Racin - hope you find your turkey. Let us know! We're your turkeys separate from your chickens now? How'd your dog get out!? Was he in a different yard area than we were at your house?

    Hopefully your other turkey will show up.

    Have you interviewed the dog? Or does he just look at you and wag his tail.

    i no longer have ducks but i used to and they were housed and kept togetjer with my chickens. First off they were raised from hatchlings together. My female ducks always got along with my cjickens. Now they males ducks did try to mate the hens. But they were also cery mean to them. they would grab onto a clump of feathers and not let go. It would be to the point where the duck wouldnt let go and the chicken would be freaking out and we would have to thriw a bucket at it to get it to let go! the chickens avoided the ducks as much as possible. i had a mean rooster at the time that didnt even mess with them. I decided to completly get rid of ducks a little ubde a year ago. O and i did have a male call duck that never dared to mess with the chickens. the mallaed deakes would chase the call duck and his mate. if i ever get ducks again i am only getting call ducks, and dont see me doing that anytime soon. IMO i would not house them together.
