Re: Identification

Just by way of a PS to this topic, I have 3 Pavlovskaja hens and four Pavlovskaja cockerels and the breed does not appear to be extinct. Though whether the current strain is rescued from a surviving cock or a cunning Russian re-creation is another matter.
But they are fun.

Re: What temps a poorly chook to eat?

Great news - hope progress continues. One extra thought I forgot to include for sickly chooks. If you have an area of available lawn, short grass etc, water it with a couple of cans of water and place sickly chook on damp grass. Give her time and every encouragement to potter. She probably won't wan...

Re: Information on Worming Chickens

The problem with Flubenvet (and probably other wormers) is that the dosage assumes you have several hens all of whom have the appetite for their food. What I and probably quite a few other folk need is information on just what the dosage is for one or two birds. Getting the dosage into the bird is n...
