    Your dad is a LOT older than you. . .. My dad is living with us ( Alzheimers) and he is in his 60's.
    It gets rough taking care of your parents.

    Me! I'll put him in with the goats and let them bounce on him for a while [​IMG]


    For those who toe punch - how does it work??
    I mean I know HOW, but how do you number??

    I have one pullet who is toe punched from the breeder b/c she comes from a super, super dark egg, but it is only one "hole" in one foot/toe web.

    I don't understand your question. That is, I don't understand what you don't understand. Punch a hole in the toe webbing = chick identified. What's the question?

    MM I think she is talking about the code... the numer code for punching... it is on the back of your marans card.. if you have one...

    There should be a chart online somewhere or you could start a thread with that question.

    Quote:[​IMG] According to the guy I bought my birds from there is a special punch for just that sort of thing and you do it the first day. The pattern of how many holes in their feet determine flock #? So that you don't inbreed?

    I find it all very confusing [​IMG] and just say to myself "WOW! My chikkies have holey feet!"
