    I'd rather skip the air conditioning in this weather.

    There is a dozen pure Ayam with good pictures and seller rating on ebay for 9.99, but shipping is probably 50 bucks.

    Bubbles I would check and recheck meticulously for mites/lice on yer littleuns
    Mines wasn't laying and I found out they had leg mites....
    Even though they wouldn't touch my other girls....
    Thought that was weird. They love my OEGB fer some reason? :confused:

    I treated with horse wormer,ivermectin,1.7 I believe.
    ONLY a BB sized portion to each.
    Again in 10 days.

    One started laying almost immediately, then went broody,Lmao
    The other started back lay shortly thereafter
    The other is a bit more wild,never laid as well as the current broody.always been a bit standoffish.
    I will hafta get yall some pichers of em.

    I know a few of mine have mild scaly leg mites, but it is not progressing so I figured to just keep an eye on it. Maybe I had best treat it.

    I live up north so I do suspect weather plays a part in it.

    That was a typo and you know it.

    The only affected ones are my non-laying OEGB and my non-laying 7 year old EE. I always thought it was age keeping them from laying, but I will treat them and see if they lay again.

    Most ac eggs on eBay are a scam because they are mixed. Bobfarm is the worst of them.

    Read some of the ac threads here and you'll learn who to order from to get nice stock.
