Thanks for the advice but a new discovery called PIE works every time. Keep reading and
Love it! I am still waiting on my eggs even with PIE... although I did start the PIE a little early, and my girls are just hitting the possible early laying age!
WELCOME TO BYC weasel killer!!!!
so... OK, this is for you... this is just a small example of what you will see within a few short weeks as RK's babies grow and she still tries to cover them all. Peach only has 4... RK has 11! I will need to see pics of that! Pardon the poop, her kennel was soaking wet from the rain, I emptied it and flipped it upside down, she moved in before I had a chance to right it... she always kicks the bedding out anyway.
Henry arrived this afternoon - he's glorious! he's just perfect for Peach... then he promptly got into a fight with Max... and now he looks a bit beat up - bloodied comb and wattles, both of them. I separated Max, put him with the hens and all is calm. I wish I could post the pic I have of Henry, but he looks rough... he'll look better in a day or two, should have taken pics right away...
On a happier note, we had a Perfect Day here - glorious weather, lots of free range and 18 Eggs! that's everyone, can't count Peach, she's not laying again yet, nor are her 3 older chicks...
lindz, I am so happy to hear that you know where those dogs are. too bad you have to wait 3 weeks to get reimbursed, hope she comes through with her promises!
W4W, those little girls are beautiful! I've really developed an appreciation for the tiny chickens! I was wondering about your non-dust bathing fella... maybe he would like a different medium? have you tried sand? I think I might take him and dust him myself with some soft sand and a little massage to get him into it... my little Dutch is a great bather, but OEGB Brutus would just stand and watch, so I sprinkled dirt on him and rubbed it in... he took to it after a few times and does it himself now.
W4W Pretty birds!
Lindz, good for you keeping your cool, for now! I hope they keep their word.
Cheeka, there must be some page here for pictures like the one of Peach with all the little heads poking out! I can't wait to see RKB with all her babies!
WeaselKiller, I will try the turnip greens too. I hope something works soon! I actually had to go out and buy eggs
Pictures for sure. RK is pretty small already. Those Delawares will be twice her size. Should make some hilarious photo opportunities in a few weeks.
Great, If PIE doesn't work, what else is there?? I may never get eggs!
