      Hello! Thank you for reaching out : D

      I recently posted a thread in the Introductions
      ! As a medical patient, I'm mostly looking to connect with other patients and find growers - I'm somewhat new to the medical marijuana program; my apologizes if I come across as shy

    RIP Feisty

    This is so sad, she was one of my favorite hens I sure am sad about her passing. she looked so much like an eagle to me. Now she flies with them. May she rest in peace. I love all the care you have taken to give Feisty a resting place. ♥

    RIP Feisty

    @EDDIEKIRK This is a tough one to write. RIP Feisty Feb. 2017 - May 14, 2021 I just lost my hen Feisty this morning. She was a silver laced wyandotte that hatched in Feb. 2017. I'm clueless of how this has happened. Yesterday, Feisty was acting and looked normal. She was one of the first hens out in the morning demanding to get her mealworms. She was her normal talkative self. She was eating and drinking like normal. Her comb was bright red. She laid her egg and sang her egg song. She had her afternoon sun/dust bath. My teen chicks are in the old coop now (last night was their first night) and Feisty like normal visited them chatting away. Feisty was my mother hen when she saw babies. During the nightly head count, Feisty was in her normal spot telling everyone to get in the coop like normal. She talks throughout the night and was normal. Then this morning, Feisty was stand offish with the other hens. She's normally one of the first hens rushing out of the coop area. She didn't do her normal reaction when a hen pecked her instead just stood there. Her comb was very pale, but I couldn't find any bleeding. Feisty refused to eat or drink. Feisty wasn't known for being quiet and she was very quiet. She wasn't moving fast. I picked her up and took her in the house and called the vet asap. I was about to call the vet again after waiting a hour for them to call me back when Feisty had a massive seizure. I got her out of the cage and wrapped a towel over her while telling her it'll be ok. Feisty look at me right in my eyes then closed her eyes. I was calling the vet while my son checked for a heartbeat and if Feisty was breathing, she had a heartbeat and breathing but weak. What kind of vet office puts you on hold 3 times when you tell them your hen just had a seizure and is now unresponsive? They are the only vet I could find that sees chickens. When I got to talk to the front desk person again I said I'm bring her in now. When I get there she again puts me on hold. then says the vet will call you. The vet calls shortly after but unaware of what I've told the front desk person. Once I told her my hen had a seizure and is now unresponsive she asked what spot am I'm in, and I'll be right there. The vet ran to my car and tried to find a pulse, but it was too late. An autopsy would start at $300, I can't afford that. Feisty's 1st picture Pic below. Feisty on far right. the 1st field trip outside Feisty's 1st egg Feisty is being mourned by the entire flock. I watched them go to Feisty's grave and bow their heads. Feisty was mother to most of my flock, seen as a daughter by Sweet (mostly) & Sour, and sister by the rest and is already greatly missed. Her youngest babies (pic above) don't understand why Feisty isn't over talking to them like she has daily. My hens knew something bad happened this morning when my son went to dig Feisty's grave. They went from normal talking, eating, drinking to dead silent. Normally, they're allowed in the area and feast on the worms/bug and a large area is being hand tilled. Not this time. The area was closed down, a small hole, chicken sized was dug, and flowers including seeds were planted on top then fenced off. When they saw me carrying Feisty to this area, they all stopped talking and either watched or got closer. All were quiet and most bowed their heads. Some got closer then bowed their heads in silence. I did take some pics of a few hens. Sour didn't want anyone, hen nor human, around when she bowed her head to my old guardian dog's spot of death and then slowly walked to Feisty's grave. Sour bowed her head and stayed there for at least 5 minutes without moving. Cookies isn't just a thorn my side with her mischievous way. Cookies annoyed Feisty to no end and always after her trying to keep her safe. Despite this Cookies has been by her adopted mother's grave most of the day.

    New Chicks

    I put netting up to keep the chicks from jumping up on the cardboard siding and sticking their head through the bars. This is the first time 'chicken jail' is being used as a brooder. Luckily the young rooster did this in front of me and no cats in the room. I put up a bar for them to roost on last week. It took them a few days to be able to get up on it Caught was sleeping with his head tucked in his wing. My little Delaware hanging out with her buddies. The boys seem to have to do their fighting when they wake up from every nap. I think it mainly 2 or 3 doing most of it

      Sour is about there, but I found her a nice retirement home where she can teach young hens the ropes

    Great read. Thanks for the share.
  21. For those of ya'll medical patients with limited funds or where big brother is protecting you from yourself by proscribing ethanol above 150 proof, here is a way to make your own 190 proof ethanol for extraction and formulation from scratch: https://graywolfslair.com/index.php/10-the-alchemist-resource/10-19-190-proof-ethanol-from-scratch

    New Chicks

    Update First the bad news. When these chicks were sent, it was 2 day express with directions to call me ASAP. Live animals on the box with air hole and peeps from the chicks. Well the bigger post office in my area held my chicks when they arrived on day two and didn't sent my chick to my local post office until the next morning. My local post office called me asap and I picked them up within in minutes. The heating pack in their box was cold, chicks huddled together. Two chicks were weak, the Speckled Sussex and the Buckeye. I let the hatchery know asap, so I got a refund quickly when they died. I've never ever lost a chick let alone two before this. The hatchery's customer service was great, they gave me info to try to save the chicks and when it failed refunded me without any hassle. They weren't happy what the bigger city post office did. I checked to see when I could get replacements from them, but that's out in Sept. So I looked at other hatcheries. I found one and ordered 4 chicks. 1 each and all girls: Buckeye, Buff Orpington, Rhode Island Blue, and Speckled Sussex. there's a 3 chick minimum order. They will be here next month. Sweet & Sour are 7 years old. They egg laying days are coming to an end soon. Sweet hasn't laid an egg yet this year and never was a good layer. Sour's eggs are a lot smaller now (was large light brown to now medium almost white) and she lays 1 or 2 a week. Their breeds normally lays for 3-4 years, but their 2nd year is the best. Sour was great for 5 years straight. Year 6 is when she started to slow down. Now the good news and lots of cute pictures The Delaware and Buff Orpingtons are thriving. I'm still thinking of a name for my tough little girl. She's going to be tough since she's being raised with 6 brothers. The boys are already practicing their fighting as they figure out their pecking order. I admit, this started out really funny. They first had to master jumping up without falling on their back when they moved their legs forward. then to go forward. Many fell on their backs, went sideways, or straight up. Kinda like popcorn. This has been very interesting to my cats, but really can you blame them? Once the chicks could go forward, they had to work on their aim. I've seen many many misses and the chicks and my cats looking confused as to what just happened. Even my little girl is on this. I think Cookies is going to have a hard time teaching this group quickly that she's above them in the big flocks pecking order. Some of these boys are already very cocky. Once their legs are big enough, they will have a leg band on. This will help us to identify which will go to freezer camp and the lucky one that lives. There will be only 1 winner. My son wants to name him 'lucky fucker'. It is fitting. Roosters developed faster then hens. The Delaware breed matures fast so my little girl is keeping up. Keep in mind this breed was meant to be dual (meat/egg) bird, and was the meat breed before the Cornish cross. She's close in size and feathers are coming in at or a little ahead of the boys. Once the saddle feathers come in, I'll be able to show the difference between male/female. Male feathers are more narrow and pointed whereas female feathers are wider and rounded tips. Some of the boys have started to have their little chests out when walking or standing. This started very cute as they were doing this at first in front of the mirror. They sometimes do this when I bring a hen to look at the babies. My hens watch them then start talking. The boys then stop stunting with their chests out and lay down. Feisty can get them to do this with a look, if the boys see it. If not, Feisty starts talking, might be yelling at them, since they all stop, lay down, and pay attention. Sour, the top hen, tries this, but the boys just look at her stand with their chests out. Sour never went broody and never raised any chicks unlike Feisty. The Delaware is in this pic, do you see her? Below is a young rooster. The wing tips came in first then the upper wing and now the tail feathers Just eat dry oatmeal and/or baby grits (tiny rocks) You can see the chick's ear, the hole behind and slightly lower to his eye. Feathers will grow here soon My Delaware's wings are more developed then most of the boys. She also started her tail feathers days ahead of them
  27. I can also change your name or photo. :)
