New updates

Two things happened today. Obamma laid her first egg today, about the same color and size of stephanies. Puff puff crowed for the first time also, his right eye is still closed and he had a cold. I've been giving him antibiotics and he seems to have more pep in his step,( saw him strut yesterday) so maybe he's getting better!!! We now have 3 hens laying, 1 rooster crowing, 1 chicken (halfbreed) is neither laying or crowing(don,t know why) and 4 quail eggs in the incubator!!! (We'll see!!!) Halfbreed looks like she has a case of leg mites so I'm going to have philip catch her and we'll put vaseline on her legs and it should clear it up!

  2. Not at all when you enjoy it!!! I messed up and got chickens from another source(not going to mention name,not a hater) Now I will always order chicks!! Thats how we got puff puff and chickzilla. The other 3 we got elsewhere. Stephanie and obamma are healthy. Bamma mamma had an airsac infection and died. Halfbreed has leg mites(we're taking care of her now). We're going to get about 20 more pullets ia a month or 2 along with some other fowl(big word).
