Problem-solving a troubled hatch
Edith's answer to my
question about what she wish she'd known about chickens when she
first got started involved breeding:
"PeepPeep is 3 1/2 and a full blood Buff. He has Fathered all of our chicks since he was able to. In the picture he is doing his dance trying to win over the Hens.
"To answer the question.......I wish I had known about inbreeding. The Hen in the other picture set twice this Spring.....the only problem is that we hatched out 4 chicks from both settings. Dud eggs. We tried incubating also....all duds. Very sad to learn the hard way."
Our chicken waterer is perfect for chicks from day 1 since it keeps then dry and healthy.
