Wing I bought all they had!!!! Sorry......................
You bet she's happy! She loves those mess makers!
Oh, we are lucky that wasn't going on too. I plan on going back to that TSC. It is so much cheaper then the one by me! They also have a bigger selection!
quick question for you guys. I made my late night "rounds" for the night and before the snow. I noticed my largest and oldest pullet chick (about 5 weeks) has a small bald spot on her back above her tail between her wings (about the size of a finger tip). I haven't caught anyone picking at in, and i can see the larger feathers coming in, but it is more spars than other areas and it looks like one or two of the new feathers were pulled out. She has been preening her self a LOT. Is it possible she did this to her self, or did one of the other chicks pick at her back? The skin isn't red or sore at all, like i thought it would be if it was from others pecking at her. She is the biggest and oldest and is the top of the pecking order. I left her in there with everyone but i gave them some new larger sticks/roosts to play with to keep them occupied. Maybe I will give them some treats tomorrow. Is it just from her losing the baby feathers and getting the new ones in and during preening she might have accidentally picked one out?
She probably picked out a feather that she is molting.
Sally, I love the crown Harmony made! Awesome
So I'm considering getting a rooster.... I have 17 hens, 7 in one coop/ run and 10 in another. Any advice? I have EE, silver laced Wyandotte, buff Orpington, red sex link and white leghorn mix. Should I get a roo that is old enough to add to current flock? I'm worried about getting a mean roo.... Advice? Love my EE's....
It was great to meet you both too! Let me know how your hatch goes!
I have a BO roo I have to eventually rehome (He's just over 3 weeks old). Sold as a sexed pullet, but he turned roo. So far, he's a great guy! He gets handled pretty often so he's confortable around people and he'll fall asleep in your hands (He's a sweetie, breaks my heart that he has to be someone elses manly man. There are too many of them here!). Duke has some growing to do though, (adult hens would torture such a little guy) so when he gets a bit bigger, if you still need a roo, let me know
Ok yu emu people found this on Craigslist!!
