Thanks for that Andrew
You can get them for $5 at Northside Produce. I got 3 that are doing nicely Darren.
Gumfree site has some chicks and eggs - Jumbo Jap. Pine Rivers and Ferny Grove.
Hi there everyone ,I am interested in buying some jap quail and I hear that they are breeding an extra large type and was wondering if anyone could tell me where I can buy them
I also find it's best to introduce them late in the arvo. The overnight sleep over seems to help the bonding process. And unlike Susanne, I forgot Betty's wings weren't clipped. Had over an hour's fun keeping her in the yard and getting her out of the tree.
I have two chooks in a large pen. We get on fine. Respect each other's privacy. But I want more eggs so I'd like to add another two chooks.
Last time I added stock I got pecking order savagery so I'm a bit wary. Is it best, do you think, to add two at once or stagger the additions?
Are there other work arounds?
I'd prefer to get bantams but I doubt that they will co-exist comfortably with the larger poultry. True? I mean given that I have two already ruling the roost...
I've always had bantams in the past....and I miss those gals.
To anyone who has backyard chickens/ducks/turkeys or other feathered friends in SEQ:
Could you spare a few minutes to help a study on the possible presence of Antibiotic resistant bacteria in backyard poultry?
Researchers are looking for people who have healthy backyard flocks (4–99 birds) of any kind in south-east Queensland. (Chickens, turkeys, waterfowl, pigeons/doves etc.)
The study involves 1. the collection of some poop from the ground or a perch ("an environmental sample of avian faecal material"); the birds don't need to be touched, as the poop can be sampled wherever the birds left it. This doesn't involve giving any antibiotics, since it is about understanding the bacteria present among your birds, not about altering them.2. a short questionnaire either electronically or via post.
If you can help, please contact UQ researcher: David Wakeham firstname.lastname@example.org or Ph (07) 5460 1090
:) Whoa Black Betty.
