    Well, NY found it's summer. I'm ready for rain...lol Humidity is only 64%, but it feels so hot out there. I made two veggie ice blocks-well- they are in the freezer becoming ice blocks...lol so the birds can have a treat tomorrow since it's supposed to be about the same or a tad hotter.

    I had a hen at the beginning of summer do that too. It was her first time sitting. All of the eggs that developed hatched! I was shocked!!
     
  4. yes you deworm chickens according to our state lab that was why I was losing young pullets last year. when I say young I mean close to laying age. what you use is up to you some people use food grade D.E. I use Wazine and Ivermectin It's best to know what kind of worms your chickens have and treat for those .that requires stool sample and a vet to check it. and of course a vet bill.[​IMG]

    Chickening mistakes are easy to come by. We made a lot of them this first year.

    Sounds like a raccoon or cat. ?

    I think BYC910 is spot on. Voice of experience. [​IMG]

    Nope, not :smack ing for peachicks. You said early on they were different, and I have no experience. You are, however, reaffirming why I don't want them :gig
