    No real update on my injured hen. I have to say if this kind of thing happens again once I know how to process a chicken, the injured chicken will be put out of its misery. Right now she is skin and bones but eating better. Her comb has shrunk drastically and waded as well. She can move around but not easily and has started using her wings for support. I give her until the end of August then its a small cut to end her pain. Unless anyone here wants to adopt her. Then they can have her now for free of course.

    Am so sorry to hear it. I have some failures with splays as well as leg injuries. If they aren't improving my outlook is the same, I wont let them suffer.

    That was my thought, too. I may or may not be going to the party (probably not because of the drive), but if anyone in northeast Indiana is going and would be willing to take a kitten or two with them... ;)

    I have 6 chicks (yes I managed to count them after a few tries lol) and 3 eggs that have craked. Hoping I will get some more chicks! I had 21 eggs left to hatch and 3 of they are in the process of hatching. I would love to get a 50% hatch rate, so 13 or 14 chicks, crossing my fingers.[​IMG]

    jchnny2000- I dont remember when you said your eggs were suppose tohatch, but has anything happened yet?

    I have been hatching eggs since january and plan to keep hatching all year. Around 1 hatch every month or 2. You gotta have chicks all the time lol!

    Welcome to all the new members!

    Bradselig- Cute chicks! I hope your next hatch goes good too.

    Millie said "Watch me do the Moses number and part the sea of chickens". Silver laced Wyandottes
    not very impressive in their markings. Wyandottes and Jerseys are all pullets. Cochin are straight run.
    Buff Orpingtons are straight run: turned out 7 roos and 5 pullets.
    [​IMG]

    The cochins and the red laced wyandottes appear to be quality stock from efowl.com.

    Blue cochin rooster.

    Same rooster with hen looking on (2 months old). Jersey Black Giant hen getting a drink.

    I plan to be at the Mooresville 7/28 get together with 10 freezer bound roos about 4 months old.
    If they don't irritate me beforehand.

    I have
    12 Buff Orpington (7 roos),
    8 Indian runner ducks (2 chocolate, 4 blue, 2 fawn and white)
    6 Buff Cochin
    5 Blue Cochin
    6 Jersey Black Giants
    5 Silver Laced Wyandottes
    5 Gold Laced Wyandottes
    1 Yellow Labrador Retriever
    1 Beat-to-hell Red Golden Pheasant with a lame leg that hasn't gotten any better. I checked and it doesn't appear to be the displaced hock tendon problem. I'm just going to leave him to maybe heal. We will know in a month or so.

    Here is a picture of the poor little critter in the dog cage which is his rehab center for the time being. His name is Jimmy Hop-Along. Or possibly Weed-Wacker Jimmy.

    50% on shipped makes me happy. Have had 2 0's, and one batch only 1 hatched.
    Yes, had a good hatch on my Texas A&M quail, got 8 out of 14 eggs. leaving them in one more day but I think they are done.
    So my quail count is at 60, and have a good stock of breeders to pick from.
    Should start to see eggs this week out of the jumbos [​IMG]
    I have guinea, pekin, and msc chicken hatching this week also.
    I moved hatch day to wednesday so its not interfering with our camping trips once a month.
    [​IMG] they have sure grown up! Rangi is still my fav, what a pretty baby.
