Bring it! Lol!
O.M.G. That's freaking hysterical! Only because it wasn't me this time . The photo cracked me up; but I guess Chickenrunner will take a while to get to the point of laughing about it.
Nah. He's good. I'll get pics of the bator tomorrow.
Morning y'all. Work at 0630.. I do NOT like having to rush my coffee time. *yawn*
Have a nice day everyone.
Hey anyone seen this one??
So our 6 chicks are still alive!
This might not seem to amazing but as we lost one last week, and we are new to this, it seems wonderful, and scary.
So I read some place that female chicks grow their tails sooner than males? If that is the case I think we might has 3 hens and 3 roos....
My dear friend in VA ended up having to kill her Roos as her town made a new law that no one can have them in city limits and she tried to give them away but no one wanted them. Do people really not want free Roos?
I haven't heard anything about the tails growing faster. SOMETIMES you can wing-sex them at a day old, if they were bred for it. But it's hard to tell if they were or not, unless you were the breeder.
Aside from vent-sexing or waiting until one starts to crow or lay an egg, there really isn't any reliable universal way of determining gender.
As for not wanting roos, it depends. I've been able to give them away around here, and abmaddox usually sells them quite easily at the auction on Fridays.
Oh wow. Thanks sommuch for the info!!
From what I understand (and I am new at this) the problem with keeping roosters in a flock is the hen/roo gender balance. If you have too many roosters with too few hens they will pester the hens endlessly and even strip all of the feathers off of their backs while constantly mating with them.
Seems a lot of folks want a few hens PER rooster to keep the balance and keep the hens from going bald.
