    Yeah one of the EE's has started laying, i named them cloey and zoey, zoey has been giving me an egg a day for a couple weeks and she is getting some girth! Saw a blood spot on an egg not long ago so i thought cloey had started but im second guessing that now

    Catdance silkies are suppsedly the cream of the crop, yokies are kinda hard to find depending on the breed (red shouldered and white are the only ones with a SOP that i know of). Sex links you can do on your own, find a BA roo (tiger creek on byc has some beautiful birds) and cross with some BR's (i think the guy name is yardfullofrocks on here)

    As far as the others go, browse the breed threads, plenty of info there. For the yokies onagadori on byc is a start, i believe thats where sarge got his nice trio from, or wait till sarge, yinepu, and i get our yokies going

    I thought I had asked this earlier but I cant seem to find it now! Anyway, I am looking for hatching eggs, chicks, or POL's in the following breeds if anyone has any or knows where I can find them it would be great! French Black Copper Marans, Light Sussex/Speckled Sussex, Light Brahmas, Tolbunt Polish, Delaware's, Heritage Barred Rocks, and Araucanas(not Ameraucanas). I need purebred eggs or chicks to add to the bloodlines I currently have, so no mixed breeds please and only the color varieties I have listed. Also can use adults in these breeds and will accept 1 adult rooster in each breed too... I'm also looking for Guinea Keets and New Zealand or Californian Rabbits either young or breeding ages...Willing to barter or buy...

    Please let me know if you have any of the above and are within driving distance of Houston, preferably within 2-3 hours of Brazoria County...


    Thank you

    OK years ago I had chickens and never had any problems with them laying and having babies, we moved down her in the winter of 09 and that summer we got some baby wyndotts and I found a lady that had a mama chicken,we went out to her place with the babies and put them under her brought her home and she raised the babies with no problem. I lost a few from the coyotes and hawks along the way. The mama we bought was one that we lost but it was way after the chicks had grown up, anyway non of the chickens ever got broody. I ended up buying a couple of orphington and two amercanas, lost one of my amercans to a puppy that came from who knows where, I was so mad I could have shot the puppy but didn't because I wasn't sure if it had really got my girl but when I went out in the pasture there she was, by that time the puppy was gone and never seen it again good thing or he wouldn't be here. So about two weeks ago my orphington got broody I thought she was getting ready to by the way she was acting, she would fluff her feathers when the guineas would bother her like she was trying to protect her babies but she didn't have any. When she stayed on the nest I new she was broody and I didn't have a rooster so I went and bought two black copper marans pullets and 8 eggs put the eggs under her and she keeps breaking them now I'm down to two eggs. I have hay in the nest box so just don't know what is happening. I will be Lucky if I get one baby out of those eggs. How do they sit on 15 eggs and not break them? I think what I will do is try and get some more maran chicks if I can find them and put them under her when it is time for them to hatch.

    I am trying to figure how why some of my chickens always have runny poop while the others are solid I rake the pen everyday. Feed them purina pellets with omega 3, some conditioner feed mixed in. I put vitamins in their water and recently began using healthy flock tablets to sanitize the water. Any suggestions would be helpful. These are 2-3 year old birds. Another Texan just 40 miles north of Houston.
