It's just a wrinkled egg. I was going to tell you if you cracked it open it would be normal contents. Something just went hay wire in the shell formation part of forming that egg.

Need help!!! Installing a new fence for miniature milker goats. Will the galvanized chain link with vinyl coating be a problem? will the goats chew the vinyl off? Is it harmful for them? Any advice welcomed! New to goat farming!

We have been raising dairy goats for 14 years and have used several kinds of fencing.  The ones that have no escapes or predators ever get thru is RedTop NoClimb horse fencing and horse panels.  Goats like to stand up on fencing and also scratch themselves by leaning on the fence and waling down the whole length of it. So any thin galvanized fence will be bent and stretched out in no time.  Same with chain linking.  Stretched out.  We have never had a goat escape or anything get in praise God.  Just my two cents worth.  If you wish to see our fencing and dairy goats feel free to see them on my blog.  www.sanctuaryfarm.blogspot.com     Blessings.

I have a 9 week old Rhode Island Red Roo that has suddenly become listless.  He just sits in one place.  I have witnessed him eat and drink a little.  I have witnessed him go the the bathroom too.  mostly white and black poo).  I pulled him from my flock and have him wrapped in a towel for warmth and comfort.  He is staying on my front porch out the the direct weather.  What else can I do?  I do not want to take him to the vet,  just nurse him back if possible on my own.  Any suggestions or advice wanted..(

First get some electrolytes and put them in his water. Always do that first, as its cheap and healthy. Farm store should carry them cheap we jokingly call them "chicken Gatorade"

Next try to determine the cause of his ailment. There is coccidiosis, infections, sickness, parasites, etc... Pick him up, do a manual inspection. Look for bumps or breathing issues etc... Really look.

If you cannot tell it makes life really hard. Might put some antibiotics in the water and hazard the guess for random infection. But that last step is debatable.

Our chicken named Faith, found a new place to lay her egg... We had to move her old nest and so she being the "faithful" chicken has found and created a new nest in the bunny cage? Note the bunny is in a new home so this one was vacant.

Just got two miniature milker goats. I am getting pen installed, but I needed to know if the vinyl coating on a chain link fence will cause a problem with the goats? Any other advice is appreciated!

The best advice I have is to get familiar with Fias Co Farm website. Goats can be very mischievous, be prepared for anything, be patient, and have fun!
