Re: Worm count kits

Worm count kits all very well, but if you got worms and can't get flubenvet its a problem. My girls won't eat marriages pellets, so on a time bomb until someone somewhere sorts out the issues with flubenvet and gets some on the market... And no, vermex does not work!

Re: Red bits in chick poo

I live in a small group of 8 houses and some neighbours say there is a covenant against keeping chickens in their deeds. I never found anything in mine and everyone is happy with my girls as they know they are pets and I make sure I keep them spotless and vermin at bay etc. I'm not sure how they wou...

Re: Red bits in chick poo

3 boys and a girl it is - 2 mottled / speckled boys and the third turning into a lovely clear Blue / Lavender boy (the one on the left with the large comb). He's hand tame, always looking out for the girl and mum and really friendly. Need to find a home for (at least him) because he's an angel. Any ...

Chicks now four weeks old and three are sizing each other up, butting chests and hang in' with the homies, so presume boys.
This one I'm not so sure about. Seems quiet, never really mixed with the others and is possibly a girl?
Best guess anyone, or do I need a full length shot?

Re: Boys or girls?

They are all very sweet and come from lovely looking parents (although not 'standard' breed colours). Sadly I only have a garden and although neighbours love the girls and appreciate the care I take to make sure they are clean and do not attract vermin etc, I think cockerels would be one step too fa...

Re: Boys or girls?

17 days at time of taking picture. The grey one seems to act like a boy and has done since birth, taking the highest point and always been the bravest. Think the 2 in the middle may be boys because they spar with the grey one, but may just be chicks fighting? The blonde on the right is the quietist ...

Re: Red bits in chick poo

Oh dear, it's always the ones you love the most that cause the most trouble :D yes, they are all Pekins. I posted these in the photo section but will post here too. The grey one has acted like a boy since birth and the little blonde one on the right a girl, but as this is the first time I've ever ha...
