    Yeah, so maybe someone looking and dressing like THAT should make an appearance at our mini BYC convention at the York Show. I'd bring some dolla' bills!!!!!

    Flock Combination question.
    Older flock; 2 wyandotte, 6 bantams and 3 cochin roos.
    Young flock; 6 RIR, 2 leghorns, 1 serama, 2 mallard ducks, 2 pekin ducks, and 4 red bourbon turkeys. Everything is a couple months old.
    My coup is divided into 2 sections with wire mesh in between. Both sides have their own run and the younger birds have a heat lamp in case it gets cold.
    How long do I leave them separate?
    When I do combine them, do I do everyone at once or a couple at a time?
    Any other tips for combining flocks?

    Do it all at once at night. Wait until about 8 weeks. Everyone should be big enough to hold their own by then.

    Ok guys, I could really use some help. I am a little worried about my favorite chick fancy. She is a 5 week old speckled sussex hen. She started having some feather loss on her back but there has been no blood and i have not seen any one picking at her, she is the oldest and was always the one in charge. I have been putting a+d ointment and some wound powder on her back (it's about the size of a finger tip) to help with her feathers and make the skin darker so they don't peck at it. Today i noticed she is sneezing and has a runny nose. She is still active and eating and drinking and acting her normal self, but she keeps wiping her beak on the bedding because of her runny nose and i listened to her breathing and could hear some rattling. What do i do???? I have 23 chicks in the brooder with her. It is a big brooder, i haven't added any chicks for 2 weeks. Everyone seems healthy. Do i need to isolate her? should i add something to there water? I keep the brooder very clean and they have a heat lamp and everyone seems comfortable. Please help!! I am very worried about her and the rest of the chicks. Thanks in advanced!
