    Yea, my wife reminded me when we took something to someone's house and they had chickens. I thought it was goofy they had chicken crap on their back porch and the chickens were roaming all over their yard. Oh how times have changed for me!

    I know someone who has a while bunch of quail...not sure if he has button quail though. I don't have him in my contacts anymore since my phone drowned in the dog water bowl over Christmas but I know where he lives!

    Sad to report that April is moving, and won't be bringing her beautiful show birds to The Mill, [​IMG]. Chicks Night Out just won't be the same without her, and I let her know it!! I hope they got someone else to bring their birds in.[​IMG]. The upside, if you didn't already know, they'll have Barred Rock chicks, EE's & RIR's this time, last time it was only RIR's. I'd be tempted, but I'm hatching the Barred Cochins. Don't want too many barred chickens running around, LOL! But I may be persuaded to get a few EE's as my only one insists on laying in every inaccessible spot on the property.[​IMG]

    Just want you to know that I resisted going to Tractor Supply to look at chicks tonight, and I won't have time tomorrow. To compensate, I set 4 dozen eggs - marans, ameraucanas, plus a couple olive eggers.

    I'm still waiting on my tux buttons that I paid for last year. :( I'll have to shoot him an email. Hopefully they start laying again soon.

    Wing, I usually don't feed medicated chick starter. I am this year. I think the parasites are gonna be out of control! It needs to be frozen for at least 10 days (deep freeze) to kill the eggs, protozoa, etc. that's in the soil. I am going to de-worm too. I am going to alternate. I am going to spot treat only. I am also going to frontline the birds every 35 days. I am so sick of the f'ing starlings giving my birds lice!

    They sell the right one at TSC, it a generic in the yellow box. Its a cattle pour on. It works good. It will not kill every species of mite/lice. So far it has worked for me. If you can't find the right pour on. You can get a tube of horse wormer.
