    Hey Shelley when will you have some silkies and cochins? How do I put an order in?

    Well first timer here letting a chicken sit on eggs and today I went out and she wasn't on it, she must of got down to eat and drink and someone else layed another egg in the nest box. I put her back on the nest but now there is 5 eggs one being put there today. I guess I should have marked the ones that were there so I would know which are which. One way to learn I guess.

    Howdy Michigan! Just popping in to see how you are doing. We've had a colder-with-more-snow-than-usual winter here in Oklahoma, so I am feeling a little closer to ya'll this season. Take care and keep warm!

    I have a parakeet that is egg bound! Gave her a warm bath and have her under a heat lamp. Also putting oil at her vent...too small to try and get anything in her vent. Poor baby! Her mama died of egg binding. No more inside birds for me! Is there any thing else I can do for her? [​IMG]

    Quote:Experience is the best teacher, Briana. [​IMG] You may wanna go ahead now and mark the eggs that are there...just in case it happens again....that is, if you haven't done so already. [​IMG]

    As for Silkie and Cochin chicks...I've got a boatload of Cochins and a few Silkies due to hatch on the 19th. I've started incubating a new set of eggs every 7-10 days. [​IMG] I think I've lost my mind! [​IMG] [​IMG] The Silkie chicks will be from my pure blue/black/splash pen. The Cochin chicks will be blue/black/splash mottled. They should be very cute! [​IMG] I'll contact you through my website, Briana, when the chicks hatch and let you know for sure what I've got available. They're all going to be for sale. I'll also be starting a thread here in BYC when it's closer to hatch time. [​IMG] If you already know how many you may want, just let me know and I'll be sure you get them. [​IMG]

    Rose with that bird being smaller than a chicken it's a little harder but if you place one hand on it neck and firmly grasp with the other hand below the first and slide lower hand towards tail egg should pop out. [​IMG]

    Good Evening!

    The game is on and most of us are in the rec room!

    Got to go and make milk shakes for the kids.

    Then after half-time, I get to go and pick up the oldest from a church super bowl party.

    Good Evening!

    Hello Everyone! How are you all doing? Getting ready for the storm on Tuesday?

    For eggbound birds, chickflick, order Calciboost online. It usually only takes a couple of drops in the beak and the egg comes out soon after. It may not help this time, but a good product to keep on hand.
