Housing, Health & Hatching / Re: Cheap Rabbit Cages for Bantam Breeding
« Last post by Tennessee Farms on January 21, 2020, 11:52:52 PM »
I plan on building a wooden stand for these to set in then place them inside a fully fenced in shed. Hopefully that'll keep most critters out. I need  a few large male barn cats and a guard dog to stay outside with chickens. Lost my best guard dog last year, maybe i can get a young rescue by next year to train. I'll post pics once frame is built, hopefully within next month

That seems like a Really good deal for cages. I have seen some use this type cage for breeding, especially pairs for predigree tracking. Be careful that they are protected from predators, even snakes like bantam chickens and eggs. And the wire will not keep the creatures from creating havoc. I've had a 4' black snake inside wire of this size and even a hawk that snared a youngster thru the wire top. They will be helpful If they are in building with smaller wire or somehow protected with an elec wire perimeter. Commercial farms use wire cages not quite this size for 3 LF layers. The ones I've seen come in 10' sections. They have dividers at 14". So they can put many layer chickens in a row with roll away floors for eggs and automatic feeders/watering systems.

Housing, Health & Hatching / Cheap Rabbit Cages for Bantam Breeding

Thought I'd post a pic of some bantam breeding cages I bought off a local farm group on Facebook. $50 + $10 for him to drive them an hour to me, so $60 total. I saw it as a good score. He got them in a trade for a boer goat. Previous owner used them for rabbits, seem to be perfect size for bantams.

8hole, each compartment is 18in wide X 24in long X 18in tall

4hole, each compartment is 24in wide X 24in long X 18in tall

Anyone else use this style set up for bantam pairs/trios mating?

Exhibiting & Promoting / Re: Self Blue Ameraucana Bantam Approval Process
« Last post by Don on January 18, 2020, 09:26:56 PM »
Thanks Paul and Aaron for the emails. Hopefully this will work out for this breeder to get some Self Blue Bantam stock sometime this season thru one of the contacts you provided. But please keep an eye out for others in that part of the country who might want to create a good showing at the Norman OK National this season. At the very least it would make an eye catching class of the variety and hopefully interest some others in working with the color in bantam as well.

Sounds like a plan I was getting a lot of eggs a month ago, now I only have 1 laying regularly on entire property. Ready for it to warm up. I'll tell them you said hey, thanks I'll check my email. Hope you get your egg eaters worked out!

Spencer, it's always the Good birds, the ones you hope to raise from that get into trouble with something. But I am working out some blind roll away nests to help with the issue. I will send you an email with more detail. And certainly, we can trade some eggs later in the season when they are more productive and we both have incubators working well.       Thanks!  And Please tell your family we say hello, too!

Thanks Don! With the newborn in March and moving/renovating in our new home, I won't be able to start hatching till April-June. I'll show a few at the Dixie classic show which was moved to January 2021.

If I hatch a few before April and if someone is driving thru TN on i40 I'd help with gas if they could show a few birds at nationals for me and I'd donate them to the silent auction. I've talked about nationals with Lisa and personally attending won't be an option.

I plan to hatch about 100 project eggs, and 50 whites & 50 blacks.. but time will tell especially if any issues occur.

What variety has started eating the eggs? I still plan on swapping some eggs if it works out on both of our ends.
