    Can Valbazen be put in the gallon waterers? Can not find any straight answers. There is no way we would be able to catch all 70+ chickens. I’m afraid the bread method would cause some chickens to be overdosed and others to be under-dosed as they steal and fight for the bread.

    We have a sick little bantam. According to the guy we got her from she should be about ten months old now. Three nights ago she started wobbling and wouldn't go on the perch with her buddies, so I brought her inside to investigate. I tried a warm bath and checked for a stuck egg but couldn't...

    So those leg bands I bought from Jeffers turned out to be a bad idea. The plastic tip on the end dug into one of our girl's legs. I will be writing a negative review on those definitely. I don't think it looks infected, but it's got this big scab thing which is making kinda hard to clean and...

    We got some chicks from cackle hatchery four weeks ago (Rhode Islands, Wyandottes, and Australorps) We decided that we were tired of not knowing which chicken was which so we got some little ring ID bands from Jeffers. They are like little plastic rings that are open on the side. Does anyone...

She tends to roam around a 5 acre area without tiring; she's completely healthy... Getting to the topic at hand, a...

    I am planning to get some chicks in a few weeks, and I put the coop in the goat pasture. Is that okay? They would be loose with the goats during the day. I heard some people say that goats can get sick from chickens. Is this true? Thanks! :book:

    Ok - so I have a broody duck. She was our first hen OR duck to go broody, so we were very excited. Only problem was, she didn't quite get that she needed to LAY EGGS to sit on. First, she sat on an empty nest. For seven days, I slipped a fresh chicken egg under her each day, and then left her to...

    A mink got into the chicken pen last night and killed our best duck hen and one of our favorite chickens =( It also grabbed hold of one of the other ducks by the head and it has a piece of cartilage (or something, I'm just guessing) sticking out of one of the holes a tooth made. It moves...
