Re: Haatching egg pricing?

My hatching eggs I sell for $60 a dozen with free local shipping or $50 a dozen picked up. The price is the same for common or rare breeds. I feel when people ask $10 per egg or $100 a dozen they are missing a lot of sales and disappointing a lot of buyers. I also add a few free eggs if available. F...

I generally use Eagle Creek or Sage Garden but they are both from the West.

Re: Buckeyes

You could try Skara Brae Farms. Not sure if they still have them but are listed for sale.

Re: Asparagus crowns

By far the best crowns come from Sandy Shore Farms. They are huge compared to what you find in stores and also inexpensive with only a 25 minimum, I think. A few years back I bought them by the 1000 to resell and made decent cash. http://sandyshore.ca/asparagus-crowns/ These crowns are big and healt...

Re: Eggs???

I do supplemental lighting 6500K (daylight) bulbs from 4 am- 5 pm. Most of my older hens are moulting and I have about 40 % 1st year layers but overall my egg production is down about 20 %. I feed layer pellets and treat with scratch grain & black sunflower seeds. I haven't seen any study but I wond...

Re: Can anyone identify?

Just a thought. Download the free app. "Plantsnap" to instantly get an answer to variety. They claim over 585,000 plants are identified with 90% success. My wife uses it quite often to help her identify plants.

Re: Question on Mites in the coop

Rubbing the roosts, sides of small coop and even the birds feet with vaseline will also kill/control them. Any nicotine spray meant for gardens can also be very effective.
Don't give up, it will work.
Happy chickens = more eggs.

Re: A Few of Our Birds...

Love the Hmong. I too got some eggs from BC but unfortunately now have 6 cockerels and only 1 pullet. I'll rotate the boys when it's time to expand the gene pool. They are surprisingly tame to work with.

Re: I think my new dude is a dud

Are you trying to incubate the eggs to check fertility or just cracking them in a bowl? If so maybe your missing something. I would put 2 dozen in for a week. Crack them all open to know for sure. If any are fertile then probably another few weeks will correct that.
