    It was clearanced because we were no longer going to carry this type. It wasn't marked down that cheap, I negotiated with a manager. Another coworker and myself had to buy all the rolls that were left to get that price and we split them.

    Fluffy Feathers Feature Film
    A close-up look at English Orpingtons

    My son, Max, took this video on his new iPhone5s that has an improved slow motion video at 120 frames per second. It's perfect for examining the fluffy feathers of English Orpingtons! He posted the video of my English Jubilee and English Chocolate bantam orps on youtube:

    Aww I am sorry, both of you. If a chick doesn't make it, or does hatch but develops problems its always painful.
    I have learned the hard way to not try to "save" them all, most die in the end and its heartbreaking.
    I still have my wry neck "crook" the fry stealer. 4 month old EE roo. He gets worse as he gets older.
    The rest I let nature decide now, unless its a sure fix.
    Kab, There's a "chick in a cup" sallysunshine talks about in the hatching 101 article. That would be my only thought.

    Good luck!

    My pekin were that way, food hogs! Now that all are past 8 weeks, its slowed way down.
    My stanley the scovy drake is a huge food hog tho, and he is about 18 months now.
    He is LAST to be allowed to the food troughs [​IMG]He has a big layer of fat on him already. He is very lucky he is my only scovy drake!
    I worry constantly he will impact his crop. I have never seen one inflate like his! Looks like he swallowed a softball [​IMG]

    I though FF was suppose to cut down on feed bills. I have only been feeding it for 4 days and they love it but are not eating any less.
