    Are you sure you were looking at the correct stuff? Because at Lowe's a wye is 5 bucks... and the 10' is around $13. These were the 4" PVC.


    I also know my local hardware store will have shorter PVC pipe for cheaper from cuts they have made, so I could pick up a 4 or 5' length for a couple bucks. :)

    EDIT! :p

    I think I realized what you were looking at. That wye was a S x s x s and if I remember correctly those are rated for high pressure for things like higher pressure water systems. So you can pick up one of the hub connector PVC fittings for the 5 bucks I was talking about :)

    You are right. I was on the Home Depot app. I looked again and they have them down to $5.12. Thanks. [​IMG]

    Picked up 3 new girls today. 1-1.5 yr old. I'm assuming hatchery birds, because the lady said they got them as chicks. And they aren't as pretty as self raised that ive seen

    Amercauna(I'm thinking really an EE?)

    SLW. She isn't as pretty as I was hoping for. So still going to hit up Melissa Rose for one :)

    First time I've added birds from another source into my flock. Currently I have them segregated, and I dusted then with 7dust, should I deworm? Ladies back yard was really well kept, and she only had a flock of 8.

    If I need to deworm, will ivermectin be enough? I have both pour on and injectiable/oral

    The first one is an EE or maybe OE. Have you seen her egg yet or did they say what color egg she lays? ETA She is pretty.

    The SLW and the RIR are nice. Crongrats!

    She said she lays blue eggs, though hasn't in a while. Which is why I assume EE.

    I'm getting 1 Barred Plymouth Rock, 1 Golden Comet, 1 Rhode Island Red, and 2 Easter Eggers. I ordered them from Chickensforbackyards.com I seriously hope I don't get hit with chicken math fever, although the coop I'm getting holds up to 8......
