so no pics today as rained all day till this arvo where i had to go out for trip so

but rang third chick today

ring 3664

and will need to ring fourth chick tomorrow as their feet are so stumpy

i think the first chick is defenently from my grey dom pied cock and cin hen as its feet are thiner and legs much longer

not concistent with other chicks

but still will need to see

also being opaline and the dom pied grey cock is opaline so

unless my skyviolet is split opaline

whick murphys law states he will be lol

if not though ive found my chick yeppy

woo hoo id be extatic if it is the pairing was one my best pairs i have but the storm scarred allbirds from nest but that egg was just laid so i fostered it (stupid didnt mark it as thought all chicks would be greay

one thing is all the chicks from the cinn and sky have to be sky or light green so

and the other pair could be cobalt or grey or ....gr...skyblue

 

lol oh well

its a hen so its staying here regardless :glare:

Is that an actual anti-plucking product or just a nasty tasting spray? I have a plucker sitting on eggs that is a great layer/feeder/breeder but she plucks when the pins start to turn to feathers so i usually move her out and let the cock finish feeding to prevent her even starting the plucking process. Would love to see if there was a way to stop her plucking?

its an actual produce' on market

its around 12 dollors and truely works

unless hens really really stubbon

you take chicks out when down gets plucked

and spray them you have to let dry a bit so chicks dont get chill

i only sprayed it ones this did the job

i will get name of it tomorrow as its out in shed

and to cold for me

tonight

 

 

update on chicks

all doing well and time spending with the babys begins on monday
