Buff orpingtons


We now have 5 buff orpington hens, our oldest is chickzilla and is Philip's favorite!! She lays an egg a day and we hope the other 4 which should be laying pretty soon, lay as good as she does. They are very friendly and easy to raise and we get alot of enjoyment watching them. The pic is of one that's not laying yet.

Defective brown leghorn

Our friend at the feed store had a chick he needed to get rid of because he couldn't sell it, so I told him we would take her. She has a twisted beak and only has one eye. We have her in a pen by herself, she's eating and drinking just fine. I felt sorry for her when I first saw her and thought she might as well have a chance to live. I've looked at her beak real close up and trimming is not a option. We're going to let her get alot bigger before we let her out with the rest of the chickens if she makes it. I may put a picture up later of her best side only.

Look alike




Half breeds latest chick is now 8 weeks old and looks just like it's mother. Pretty sure it's a pullet, we hope she will sit on eggs just as well as halfbreed does. You can move halfbreed to our brooding pen and she'll get right back on the eggs everytime. Top picture is halfbreed on the nest fixing to lay an egg.

Roosters


We took our 2 new white silkie roosters to our friend at the feed store. Now hopefully we just have 2 left,puff puff and a barred rock we named roo roo. Roo roo is our youngest and our biggest and it's pretty funny to hear him trying to crow!!!

Quail


Our quail are five weeks old and should start laying in about a week!! I am hoping to get a few eggs before their season for laying is up!! We have 12 cuckoo maran eggs in the incubator and they should hatch next weekend hopefully! I will keep you updated. I also have a better picture of our white quail.

Pair of blue swede ducks


This is our pair of blue swede ducks, I can't tell which is male or female but Philip can. We're hoping to be able to incubate some eggs next spring. Maybe it will work out. Have a pair of white pekin ducks also.

Air nozzle


I saw my brother Tim at the co-op buying an air nozzle and it seemed pretty useful so I went in and got me one. When I wash my waterers and feeders I soak them in water and bleach and then put the hose of the air nozzle in the mix and blow the stuck on dirt off. Works real well especially where the jar and the base screw together, pretty hard to clean without the nozzle!!

Thinning out


We took obamma and 4 other chickens to our friend Bo at the feedstore. Mostly roosters, we had too many. We were surpised because he gave us a bag of feed for them!! We were just going to give them to him. He especially liked the white silkie rooster and a rooster cross.
