Wish some one told me they lay on their sides with feet up in the air lol
I thought I killed them !
We ALL wish we'd known that! Believe me!
I wish I'd known how attached to them I would become and how easily they can become sick and die I also wish I'd known how much they would fill my partner and I's lives with peace and joy, would have got them years ago
I don't have chicks yet. I was planning on getting a red sex link and just wondered why you would never get production reds again? (Are they the same as red sex links?) Thanks
They can be prone to crop or laying problems (bred for production), mine get along fine with other breeds. They are friendly
I love this thread!!!
Things You Wish You Would Have Known?....
#1 BYC, so many here with great info, facts, opinions based on experience.
Would have never wasted my time with hatchery chicks, most are great layers but usually not truly representative of the breed.
Going from just having a few or bunch for eggs to deciding to breed and hatch your own can happen and IMHO best to start with good quality breeder stock. Might seem a little $$ but you only have to buy once.
Deep litter, better for their health and easier. Nipple waterers, no more hauling water everyday. Fermented feed, saves $$ and better for them.
Like others have said, be aware of morehens disease aka 'chicken math' it's real and contagious Lol!
