  6. Healthy Dried Treats

    Many people are looking for homemade, low calorie, healthier treats for their pets, especially if they have weight issues.  Many treats on the markets can be high in fat, salt and sugar.  Using dehydrated fruits and vegetables are not only healthy but tend to be chewy and can aid in dental care.  Homemade treats also have the advantage of not containing any artificial preservatives or sulfites to preserve color.

    Fruits and vegetable can be dried in an oven or with a commercial dehydrator. Oven drying can be done by setting the temperature between 140-150°F. Higher temperatures may harden the surface of the fruit or vegetable and prevent dehydration. The oven door should be left open a few inches to allow moisture to escape. 

    Fruits that work well include:

  7. Pasting In Chicks - Causes, Prevention & Treatment

    Pasting in Chicks – Causes, Prevention & Treatment

    Baby chicks go through a lot before you get them home. They are hatched, shipped, and stocked at your favorite feed or pet store where they encounter all the hustle and bustle of a retail environment. Then you select them, transport them yet again and bring them to another new environment. For a baby animal that is only a few days old, that can mean a lot of stress, and stress can greatly impact the health of young chicks.

    One of the most notable problems in chicks that are stressed is pasting. This problem (also called “pasty butt” or “poopy butt”) is what happens when feces that are not the right consistency get stuck to the bird and can “paste” the vent (area where feces are excreted) closed.  Left untreated, this problem, which on the surface just seems a little gross, can actually be fatal.  Pasting can be caused by a few key triggers.

  10. How to Winterize Your Coop

    from www.scoopfromthecoop.com

    If you live in the north like me, the nights are getting chilly, the leaves are changing and here has even been some frost on the pumpkins in the mornings. All this means…winter is coming! Whether we want it to or not, it will soon be upon us. So instead of scrambling with frozen fingers when it’s really cold and snowy, prepare your coop now for a healthy flock through winter.

    Check the health of your birds. Any health issues will be exacerbated by the cold weather. Treat any ailments, keep waterers and feeders topped off so their immune systems are at their peak.

    Things to do:

    Clean and disinfect feeders, waterers and perches
