    I have to pull DH out. I won't be back for a while...just to let you know. I'm going to search for you on BYC later too.

    I know what you mean...the powdered stuff. I have 3-4 different packages...lol. It's a pain to break down.

    Greybeard has a better grasp of your ounces and gallons...lol. You're doing fine and you're not bothering anyone. :hugsYou're only concerned and that's commendable. I feed my entire flock on 21% chick starter because I also give grain. If she would eat chick starter, my thoughts are that it's fine.

    The electrolytes shouldn't bother them for a mix. I think that's if they are kept on electrolytes for an extended amount of time.:thumbsup

    Darn, I totally missed you. When you get on BYC...send me a conversation. I can't find you. I'm not really certain how to search, yet. I'm going to be out but I can help figure out the stuff if you wish. I usually break it down like this... 4oz - 128 g 2oz - 64g 1oz - 32g 1/2oz - 16g 1/4oz -...

    Oh sorry...nothing gave me an alert that you'd posted.:barnie Yes, don't you love mixing with those amounts...lol. Not! I will mention one thing I've read that I didn't know until a month ago...apparently one has to watch when you give electrolytes. It's fine if it's to an individual that needs...

    She seems fine? I think broodies are programmed a bit like the roosters...where they tidbit for the chicks but don't eat much themselves because they want the chicks to get the food. Broodies seem to be clucking too much all the time to really be eating much...lol. I'll see you over at BYC?

    I went back and reread your first post. As long as she seems fine as far as acting normal etc...I would watch, probably give her food she likes and see how things go. It's good to be watching her and keeping tabs...if she seems weak or unwell then intervene. The electrolyte with vitamins is a...

    The chicks are still separated from her?

    That's a really good idea...since she hasn't been eating much.

    Hi! Most of the BYC members have most likely moved back to the site. I just saw your thread. Is there anything noticeable about her...her crop or a distended belly? As long as she's eating there's hope.

    Keeping ewe lambs for breeding, yet keeping their dad...

    If you are breeding commercial animals where you're not restricted by a purebred registry...and these animals are for yourself and don't have any genetic issues (which I'm assuming they wouldn't since you're keeping them) ;) it should be ok to cross father/daughter or mother/son. I agree with...

    lookout for colors

    Have you contacted any of the Katahdin breeders in Ontario? I hope the link below works. http://www.clrc.ca/cgi-bin/list.cgi?_list=memberprov&_association=77&_province=ON I don't know if they have as much color as we have here. Not as many breeders breed black...there's a lot more brown. I...

    What breed of hair sheep should we do?

    :frow It sounds like you may have mostly made up you mind. I'm not familiar with the St. Croix breed. I've had some friends and colleagues with Dorpers. My experience lays with Katahdins. What are your thoughts about buying the sheep? To produce and sell offspring...or to produce lambs to sell...
