  3. There you go smacking total strangers again. do Australorps lay dark eggs .I wasn't looking for dark egg layers when I found the marans I liked the way the chicken looked so had to have some. every time I say I want or I'm going or I'm thinking my wife gets nervous because most of the time I do.

    I think you're doing well. Anytime I'm assisting and get a bit of blood I hold my wet q-tip on the spot for a minute and then put it back and wait.

    Man is it hot today! I sat with the chickens for a few mins and my two oldest ones jumped on my lap and I could feel the heat coming off their feet through my jeans!! I froze veggie ice blocks today too!!! I wanted to ask you, how do you give them to the chickens? Just put them on the ground?
    Ok, thank you. I don't mind getting a vet to do a fecal test on one or two of them. That should give me an overall consensus. The oldest chickens are 9 wks. And they've only been on soil for a week or 2. So do you think I can wait till the spring to de-worm them?
    This is exactly what I did (used a spare bator). And it lets the chick stay undisturbed after the assist so they can gain their strength.
    That looks great!! Love the pics!! Did the other one zip yet?
    I love them!! Absolutely adorable! What kind are they?
