    Another of my birds

    They weigh right around 4 Lbs. They can get caught on about anything. If they are pulled, that blood supply I showed in the video can be tough to stop. They can bleed to death if they pull very many. They can't have round perches. The feathers will wrap around a round surface like a bull whip...

    Oiling frequency can vary from once every couple months to a couple times a month. It depends on the time of year and conditions. I just do it whenever they need it. They're very calm. No restraint is required for trimming nails or clipping the tip of the upper mandible either when it...

    Pretty much what you see there in the vid is how they are. They're just very que sera sera and do next to nothing all day. Males of these can even be housed together as long as there are no hens in sight. These are over all very different fowl though. They aren't for chicken coops, free ranging...

    They usually grow approximately three feet per year, but last month he put on 4.5". So it can vary.

    First, he's too rare. Second, if I had to replace him, it's far too expensive. Third, his drum stick is only about the size of my thumb. Despite his head looking like a chicken, he's technically not. He stems from complicated hybrids of oceanic archipelago fowl. So he eats sea food and rice, not...

    This is Hakuro, Hakuraikou's brother. He had a washing on Wednesday and yesterday was oiling day. I also made a video. Some jerk on youtube accused me of my birds being "fake". :crazy: <iframe width="425" height="349" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/3fe0OY9w6xE" frameborder="0"...

    TerraForums is the nicest place!

    The board I was on seemed to be over-moderated. They need to share mods with the one you were on. That one sounds like Springer; entertaining to watch, but you never want to be on it. lol

    TerraForums is the nicest place!

    Wow, that sounds like where I made all of two posts. I got two posts further than you, though I'm not sure that's something to be proud of! lol They even erased my signature flat out! Didn't even ask me if I could change it, even though I wasn't aware of breaking any official rules. I just...

    TerraForums is the nicest place!

    Really, I always knew the folks here were the best, but I didn't realize how good until I tried to join another forum over the weekend. It was an orchid specific site. I was hoping for a species specific area. There was a post that was a sticky in which the OP stated, "If you have any questions...

    conditions for Neofinetia vs. Ludisia

    I've been looking for another orchid for my terrarium. The humidity stays around 60%. My Ludisia d. and L. d. 'Alba' plants have been doing since I got them about 6 months ago. A couple are looking as though they may bloom. They have buds at the tips now instead of rolled leaves. I found some...

    Years ago I had gotten this silkie hen from a friend. She was top exhibition quality. She had the vaulted skull, a very round body, and was full feathered from crest to toe, but she wouldn't lay for anything. Shortly after I got a good quality male from another breeder, but they never had any...

    Queen of the laundry pile, LOL

    I've always liked black cats. They shine so nice in the sunlight. I have two barn cats that are black, but they aren't nearly as tame as your girl. One will take food from me, but won't let me pet it. The other won't let me near it at all. The other blue/gray cats out there are tame though...

    That's nothing compared to what pures sell for. Mine are only 60-70% pure depending on the individual. No pures are known to exist in the US. In Europe, a good quality pair of pure fowl will fetch up to €30,000, or approx. $39,000. It's been said that you'd have to remortgage your house to get...

    I don't think you'll have a chance to find out. lol I've already been given a four digit sum of $ in advance by another breeder for the first extra shojo colored bird I have available. David P.S. I'm not sure they'd be too tasty. The lack of fat wouldn't make them too tender or juicy I...
