The Poultry reddit
Poultry - domesticated birds kept by humans for the eggs they produce, their meat, their feathers, or sometimes as pets. These birds are most typically members of the superorder Galloanserae (fowl), especially the order Galliformes (which includes chickens, Guinea fowl, quails and turkeys) and the family Anatidae, in order Anseriformes, commonly known as "waterfowl" and including domestic ducks and domestic geese. The word "poultry" comes from the French/Norman word poule, itself derived from the Latin word pullus, which means small animal. Wikipedia: Poultry

Marsh is our brand new Royal Palm Tom we recently acquired ired. He’s very soft and his beard feels like a Brillo pad. I love him.
I bought 2 chickens 1 week ago and everything is going fine I really love having them around. They seem to already recognize me because they tend to walk toward me when I'm somewhere but they alway fly when I'm trying to pet them. Do they stop being afraid of you at some point or are they always going to avoid contact ?
Hey, it is the fourth time we are breeding eggs with incubator, the last times it was always about 10 chicks hatching, this time we did a bit more and it is now 25 chicks. so equivalently we give more food and more water and the small guys are hungry... so this morning we gave them quite a little mountain of food, and they ATE IT ALL 😅 (after 2 or 3 hours). they are all fine and happy and running around and don't look fat or anything...
we're just wondering, is it fine to give them "too much" and they will eat as much as they need (or can) when ever it is good for them? or can there be a "too much", and we would need to start to measure and ration/control the amount of feed available?
I'm a student looking to improve any automation at my hatchery in Canada. I also work part-time at a smaller-layer Hatchery in Canada, I heard that the American industry is very different. In Canada, we have a quota system that's regulated by the government to help stabilize supply with the demand. What's the market like in the States in terms of competition? Also, some broilers here sex their chicks since there's an incentive to have a flock with a uniform weight. Are there many broilers that also do this in the States?
About 7 months ago I acquired 4 baby keets and raised them up. They’ve been kept in a nice coup with a motion sensor light too ward off any predators. Even with these precautions over the span of the last month of lost 3 of them, one eaten by a possum, became sick a passed, and recently my dog scared one off in the middle of the night and the bird was found dead in my field. Now I have one left that screeches everyday trying to find its friend but I don’t know what to do. This is my first time ever handling poultry or just farm animals in general. I’d like to know if it’s best to see if another would take him in, or get another set of 4 as that’s the minimum you can get them for where I’m at and nobody sells grown fowl. Thank you!
None of my other turkeys get in my business like this or make these sounds. She's usually a very cuddly bird (she's pretty much just a pet at this point as we like her too much to eat) and was much calmer before she dissappeared to sit on a nest and came back skinny and alone. Before she would just quietly sit in my lap or right beside me. Now shes very possessive and tries to preen and nibble me a lot. I also think shes mad because we put her in quarantine when she first came home.
I plan to build an incubator over the winter. a 300 ish capacity automatic with proportional thermo. Is there kits out there for this ? I know incubator warehouse have an xl kit - any others? Or how would I go about putting together a selection of components on my own?
Im interested in these, they seem productive, and good temperament. they were bred from RIR.
how would I even get them? I have contacted someone from PRC to no avail.
