Re: Pekin cockerel's neck going bald

Mite and louse powder can contain different chemicals, or not depending on whether they are natural ingredient based. I don't use wet cleaners in the winter as they don't dry, so make up diatom, louse powder mix with sanulan in it and brush it into all the cracks and over all the surfaces, making su...

Re: Pekin cockerel's neck going bald

I keep pekins :) dose with 2 drops of ivermectin and then repeat dose a week later. This should clear any mite, but make sure you repeat. I have done this while using flubenvet without any issue. I also put a big dollop of diatom in the girls dust bath and a good sprinkling of louse powder, this kil...

Re: New Year chicken keeping resolutions.

My resolution is Not to worry about my girls so much. Constantly stressing about whether they are ok. Also planning to make sure that I handle my new girls more. Due to being at work from before dawn to after dark for about 2 months over winter, my new girls are happy to see me, but not comfortable ...

Re: Digestive impaction and yellow poo

That's interesting. When I lost mildred Nancy went the opposite way. She was alone in the ark, but I kept her with me and free range when I was home. She completely latched onto me as her flock leader and in a matter of weeks was doing tricks for treats, hanging out in the kitchen and would have hap...

Re: Digestive impaction and yellow poo

There is a children's book in there somewhere I'm sure :D I know my neices always ask after your house chooks wheneve...

Minimum temps for bantams

I've been told that full size chickens can tolerate temps down to -15, but bantams only -5. Is this true? If so, I'm a little worried about my pekins as temp currently -3 in the ark and been down to -4 last night ( I have a max/min thermometer in the house with the girls). They are dry and snug, a s...
