Chronos & Kairos.

That is a fertile egg.

It may be hard to see, but there is a bulls eye on that egg. We're going to start leaving the eggs in and see if someone wants to be a Mama!

New Roo

So crappy phone photos I know, but we got a beautiful Rooster from a friend. He’s in with our flock and I’m just wondering, how long until he starts to have his way with our hens? Beanie wants some baby chicks…Image08052013165019

HOW TO KEEP AUTOMATIC WATERING SYSTEM CLEAN??

Hi all,

 

I remember reading a post a long while back that talked about an additive to put in the water, that is also antibacterial.  Does anyone know what that may be?

 

Thanks!

I realise that by posting a polital blog I may loose some readers, but this should be important to every American.

mystery blood…

So I tried to take a photo of this but my camera is at my parents and my husband’s has no memory card (because I stole it and put it into my camera) but there were two bloody stools in the coop this morning.  They had to belong to one (or 2) of the original flock members b/c the new two are separated still…though one got in with the big girls and was not too kindly received.  So after on-line research it’s either nothing…or fatal…awesome.

The girls are getting pretty big, I’m wondering if they will pass blood before they begin to lay.  Any of you chicken veterans out there have any advice or suggestions for me?

On another note.  I hate fixing plumbing problems…however if you don’t fix them they begin to pile up…now we have something to fix in every room in the house with running water (minus the laundry room, thank God)  Guess I know what I’ll be doing in September.

and then there were ten…

Two more chickens…photos to come…
