    Glad James had such a great experience with 4H!

    As far as homeschooling, I would love to talk to you! I was homeschooled in the dark ages, and now am homeschooling my 4 children. I will send you a PM with my contact information. Heading to church now, but feel free to contact me this afternoon.

    My two cats are completely trustworthy with day old chicks to grown. They spend a great deal of time hanging around the chickens and will lay near the babies and let them hop on them. It all depends on the kitty.

    Good advice, but then you have to try and get them all in the same picture lol.

    Thanks. I will try to post pics by friday. I dint hatch them under a broody though, I hatched them in the incubator.

    "HouseKat~ Did you decide to construct a gazebo coop? It would make a lovely summer home for your chicks."

    We are doing it, but didn't get it completed as planned yesterday due to some missing pieces. We have everything now and will try again next Saturday. The sooner the better, because this morning we had a JAILBREAK!! I walked down the hall to the back bedroom and noticed that it was suspiciously quiet, when I opened the door the cover had been pulled off of both tote boxes! All of the Easter Eggers and one of the Black Australorps were out of the brooders. We got them all rounded up and secured the covers better.

    I'm in Whitley county, between Columbia City and Fort Wayne. I don't know if I can make the party, but maybe if someone in the area is going, then they can play kitten train? I'll see if there are any females and get back to you on it. :)

    ETA: As far as I can tell, all four are female.

    I have two eggs due to hatch in a week I'm so excited! They are from a golden comet mommy and a buff brahma roo. Anyone know if these will be sex link chicks? Will I be able to tell their gender fairly early? Up to this point I've only purchased chicks. I know nothing of genetics and mixing breeds other than the few things I've read on google. :)

    I am pretty sure that you can't make a sexlink with a sexlink, so no, you won't have sexlinked chicks. Do you know if your roo was slow feathering and if the hen was fast feathering? You should be able to sex by feather growth if the parents carry the genetics for it.

    RhondaCaroline~ Welcome to the Indiana Thread! Hope you find good homes for your chickens. Please see info below.

    irtehun~ Welcome to the Indiana Thread! Seems like there are many thread members from your general area. You can click on the link below my signature to view the list. You might read the info below first.

    Do you want to be listed on the BYC Indiana Members’ List? “Being a member of this thread” just means adding your screen name and flock info, which can be helpful because the list is a spreadsheet format that lets you sort the list by breed, county, or other category. It’s an easy way to find other members who have the same breed you have or who live in a nearby county, etc.

    Click on the link below my signature to view the list. Just look at the bottom of the list page for sorting options.

    If you’d like to be added, send me a PM (personal message) by simply placing your cursor over my screen name: Mother2Hens, and you will see “Send a PM.” A personal message ensures that your info is added. Please send your screen name, county, and city. Also include the following information about each member of your flock: List each species (chicken, duck, etc.), breed (Barred Rock, etc.), is it a LF (Large Fowl) or Bantam? Quinstar actually adds the info, so you can PM her directly, too-- whatever is the easiest for you.

    Thank you Quinstar (Erin) for recently adding a long list of information!
    If you have questions about the thread, please PM jchny2000 (Janet) who started this Indiana Thread.

    Indiana County Map for instant member location
    If anyone would like a map of your county, like the one on my avatar, I will be happy to provide one. If someone wants a combo map and a chicken or an animal for your avatar, I can put that together for you, just PM me. When I read posts, many times I think “Now where are they from?” I look at the city and still have no idea what part of the state they’re from. The map icon with the county in red because you could quickly glance and see where the member who is posting is from. These avatars are not required-- they are just a free service if you’re interested.

    If members would like me to change the photo(s) on their avatars, just PM me. Someone might have a picture of a chick that has grown into a hen (or a roo!) and would like to update the photo or someone might like something totally different.

    BYC Indiana Google Map for detailed information
    Cluck Acres set up a Google Map for just us INDIANA BYC’ers. You must first log on to your Google account or make a Google account. (If you have gmail, just use your gmail password). All you have to do is go to this link.... . Here are the directions. You will see the state of Indiana.. Zoom in to where you live and then click on the red button that says Edit. After you click Edit you will see a hand, blue pin point and a zig zag line on the map. Click the pin point and drag it to where you live on the map. After you have placed your pin point then click on it and you can edit your description by adding your county. If you want to change your blue pin point to another icon or upload your own then up on the right of that box click the pin point icon and choose others or upload your own icon. If anyone has problems with this feel free to ask.
