Pipsqueak, the pullet who was beat up by the others, is officially now a hen.!! She laid her first egg a few days ago.(: Everyone is doing good. I am just waiting for someone to go broody so I can hatch chicks. Minnie, my heifer, is doing good too. Oh, and if you haven’t heard.. Kastatka had her calf at SeaWorld San Diego.!!(:
I have been real busy lately..! I got a heifer and I am gonna show her in the fair.. so I have been working with her and haven’t really had time to post. She is 100% Limousine, black, and soo cute. She was born last year in April, so she is still a baby..(: BUT, back to the chickens. Everybody is doing good. Pipsqueak is loving her new coop, and she is healing nicely. I am still waiting for the test results from their saliva.. hopefully it comes back clear.!! I got the all clear from my mom that I was allowed to hatch some more eggs, so I am just waiting for someone to go broody and I am going to put some of my show hens eggs under her; and some from my non-show girls. Everybody is outside free-ranging, eating bugs and what not.. If you haven’t checked it out, here is the link to the ” 4-H EGG Cam ” ———-> http://lancaster.unl.edu/4h/embryology/eggcamera.shtml
The vet came, and everyone is clear and I am ready for fair.! I can’t wait to start hatching some chicks when it gets warmer out. I am gonna breed the show pair.. and keep a few, and sell the babies. Everyone is happy and healthy and Pip’s head is healing nicely and she is basically back to her old self.. just scared of the bigger chickens. I have to finish her new coop that we started to build for her yesterday. She won’t have to worry about being pecked to death now. I think I might either buy her a new friend that is calm, or the babies I am having from the show girl… just giver her one of those pullets as company.
I have somebody coming out today to make sure my chickens and ducks don’t have anything. I am scared though. This is their first check up so they can have anything, and I really hope they don’t D: Oh, and Pip is doing so much better and she is back to her normal self. Her head is just healing now.
Everyone is doing good. I am hoping that one of my hens goes broody soon so I can hatch out more babies. I am about to go let everyone out; starting the morning off a little late.
All the chickens are good, and my poor baby is doing better. I cant believe the other hens beat her up this bad. Everyone is jut relaxing now ( including her ) and now I am off to SeaWorld.! Yay.
It is time for me to lock the chickens up. It is late though, hope they are all ok.! And my baby Pipsqueak is doing a little better. I just have to think positive and hope for the best.(:
I came back today to find out that my youngest pullet got her head pecked really bad. I just feel so bad for her and hope she can pull through. I am going to build a separate coop for her and get her a nice friend that won’t peck her head open. She is seperated and has fresh food / water.
I haven’t seen my chickens in a few days. I hope they are alright. Nothing really to say since I haven’t been over there. But… MERRY CHIRSTMAS EVERYONE and hope you enjoy the fun, SAFE holidays with close friends and family.(:
