    Anyone in need of a white rock roo? We have one that is 6 weeks old. Sad he is a roo, but know the best thing for our flock is to keep it to one rooster, our BO boy. The WR is a beautiful little guy that is bigger than our BO or EE were at that age. Will take a good pic if anyone is interested.

    Good morning La-yers! hope everybody had a nice Thanksgiving! We spent a quite day yesterday snacking on leftovers. Kind of on the cool-ish side this morning. A good day to clean out the coop & lay in some new shavings. Has anybody tried the PDZ in their coop - that stuff you use in horse stalls? I noticed Tractor Supply has it.

    'Bator is rocking along & I'm hoping for a good hatch in 2 weeks. Might candle tonight & see if I can see anything (if it's like my usual luck - nope)!

    OK have a good one everybody!

    Good morning Terri and the rest of ya'll La-yers and BYC-ers too [​IMG]

    I have read on a couple of post where people have used the PDZ in their coops with good results. I only use lime every so often esp under the brooder coops when I have large congregations in them and the flys are bad. My other coops are wide open so I never have smelly issues with them of course what may not stink to me might just floor others LOL as I have had many, many years of experience working in broiler houses and the aromatics are just divine [​IMG] in those we all know, LOL smells like lots of money(spent) LOL

    Thank you for posting that suggestion -- I will for sure be trying it out!!! I'm SO tired of cat prints all over my car hood, & cat pee running down the windshield. I have nothing against the feral cats; they need a home & a place to eat, too -- & I don't mind providing that -- I'd just like them to stay off of my car, leave my "official" outside cat Minou alone, and allow themselves to be trapped & neutered/spayed so they don't propagate -- other than that, they can hang out here forever.
