Chatty Chicken

Chatty Chicken (7/19)



  1. You should always candle eggs really even if under a broody as you don't really want them to sit for 3 weeks for nothing and lose condition I would candle now and check Leanne.
  2. Well i started with 4 and i still only have 4 well thats what i tell the neighbours
  3. One of my broodys has 3 chicks hatched so far 3 to go currently in the conservatory i would post pics if i could
  4. Ive tried these on a broody and chicks lets just say after 24 hours they were very thirsty lol leanne
  5. My Blue columbian wyandotte boy Darth is still on full throttle lol 6/6 eggs under a broody due the end of the week broody and chicks will move into my winter shed once hatched
  6. Which one is Tilly if its the lemon cuckoo her mums currently sat on eggs lol sorry not much help and dont put any bedding in cage she will just make a nest out of it
  7. Well i know its late in the year and my breeding is over but one of my bobtail girls decided otherwise and now has 2 baby hopefully paint silkies shes still sitting on the other eggs im quite excited as these are my first silkies in 10 years
  8.

  9. Ive just taken one poland girl in not much hassle at all but then my girls run free so plenty of room to escape whereabouts are you ?leanne
  10. Hi yes i wouldnt think the dodgy tummies is down to the grass or turkey growers if im rearing chicks and turkey poults they all eat the same food i think its better to rear birds on grass if you can. But as lewis says just keep an eye on them you dont always see blood in poo for coccidiosis symptoms are hunched up ,sleepy ,no energy,head shaking,yellow poo with or without blood and generally looking unwell but yours dont sound like this you could always get some herban and add that to the water i love the stuff leanne
  11. Hi not very clear pics but if thats a ruffly beard going on lol they are not sablepoots they look some what the same but have no beard leanne
  12. Hi Duckling crumble is better but i always feed unmedicated chick crumb as i cant get hold of duck crumble in my area mum is fine eating what babies eat i never feed seperate food. I move babies on to grower pellets by 3 weeks as they are normally huge i try to get them eating more grass than pellets but thats just me leanne
  13. Dont know about a cockerel but i had to fight my 301b turkey stag off with a broom to go in and feed and clean them out but this just made him worse he was up for a good old fight would drop kick me the works he could even grab the broom and we would be having a game of tug of war .There was no way i could tuck him under my arm and carry him around just think your friends will be back soon
  14. I know someone who recently tried the collars on 2 boys one died so off came the other collar if it came down to my boys wearing a collar I'm sorry but I would cull them all
