    Thanks I'll try that next time. He's fine today but his white feathers are going to have a red tinge for several days. It's too cold here to bathe him.

    I sure hope she does. [​IMG]

    Yeah, mine are being a little slow to pick up also. I've got 50 chickens (over 15 of which are pullets) and I'm only getting about 5-8 eggs a day.

    I hope Jasmine continues to get better.

    As for the silkie, I've found mine have delicate nails that sometimes just rot and fall off or get twisted, not even bleeding. My poor broody silkie had really badly curled toe-nails and needed them trimmed over a few days so that I wouldn't clip the quick.
    I know what you mean by having to dip in the powder a lot. We had a hen with a bleeding foot (small but deep cut) and we used cornstarch to stop it (I hear that styptic on the skin and not nails is bad) and she continued to bleed for a little while. However, she didn't even limp so as soon as it stopped I let her back outside.

    Adorable chicks! I can't wait to see the Seramas!

    Thanks. [​IMG]

    He thinks he's royalty of some sort (he sure likes to crow a lot and dances for the ladies), so I guess the name that came to mind was the Prince of Persia.
