Alright friends, it’s happening! 🥲
I am posting up for sale the last of my Araucana flock.

💙 I have 1 rooster and 3 hens. I want the hens to stay together, but would let them go without the rooster - however, the price will remain the same.

💙 Araucana are TRUE BLUE and would make a nice addition to a rainbow flock or an Olive Egger project, which was what I was working on.

💙 Araucana are mostly known for being rumpless and for their tufts (NOT the same as muffs on Ameraucana). However, they actually can be smooth-faced, single-tufted, or double-tufted, and though usually rumpless, they can also sometimes have a tail.

💙 My rooster does have a tail, but he is absolutely beautiful and has perfect double tufts. He’s been throwing double tufts frequently even though the hens are all smooth-faced, even in his Olive Egger chicks which I have added to the pictures. I get tails about 25% of the time. 💙 The hens are all rumpless and smooth-faced.

➡️ Here is a link with a decent description of Araucana vs Ameraucana: https://mranimalfarm.com/differences-ameraucana-aracana-easter-egger-chickens/

I just purchased these ones earlier this year, before we decided to make some changes around the farm and get out of birds. It has been my favorite breed to own, and the last to go.

This is a good read to give some perspective. I often find myself hanging onto them because so many people requesting females only, but I’ve been pricing them at only $10-12. 😟 Eating all of that extra cost. It just simply isn’t sustainable.

As everyone knows, costs of feed has gone up. This year I have to really pay attention to input costs and price accordingly. I will be doing a lot more straight run chicks, and a lot less growout females this year. I hope you all understand! 😔

This is the list of how much it costs me just to get a female up to 6 weeks old. Even if she doesn't turn out to be show quality. So when I occasionally offer them it is just as favor to those that absolutely do not want to deal with having to rehome a Silkie rooster or just the comfort of knowing for sure that you have a female. It isn't something I'm making a profit off of. It makes more sense to just sell them all unsexed. You may not agree with the costs that I have included but it is just something to think about when you are specifically asking for ONLY females. Thanks 😀

Cost of a DNA confirmed pullet:
➡️How much I charge for an unsexed chick- $15
➡️Cost of the DNA test(iqbirdtesting)- $12
➡️Cost of feed and bedding to get a chick to 6 weeks old $3
➡️Wing band, paper and ink, postage- $1
➡️Even at just 2 minutes of labor per day up to 6 weeks old at minimum wage- 84 minutes of labor $12
➡️SO far the total is $43

Now double those expenses because the females have to cover the cost of a least 1 additional male because now he is worth 0. No one wants to pay for a male and they cost just as much to raise as a female.

Things that I haven't included in the total:

➡️Me getting stuck with all the extra males to rehome or cull
➡️The cost of supplies and building their pens to house them in
➡️The cost of electricity for fans, incubator, brooder lights, etc.
➡️There are more things I can list but I'm sure most of you would think that it is silly to include them

I haven’t posted in awhile!
I recently had 2 major hip and pelvis surgeries and am confined to my house for 3 months, so I shut off the incubators and downsized the flock in preparation. 😞

But y’all want to see some unedited pictures I took of my Silkie/Satin flock last fall? Just because I haven’t posted in awhile and I miss my birds? 🙃 Lol

🔸 The black ones are my hand-raised roosters, the rest are hens.
🔸 The last picture of 4 are the newest growouts that will merge with the flock as soon as I can walk again, and the biggest one in there is my new rooster that I am VERY excited about. 😍

Enjoy! 🐥

I have a young RUMPLESS Easter Egger rooster looking for a new flock! 🤗

This guy is really neat, I just don’t have use for him in my program.

He would be a good breeder for blue eggs, as his hen was an Araucana, and his rooster was a Whiting True Blue.

(I’ll have to dig to find his hatch date, but he’s less than a year old and just started crowing a couple of weeks ago).

❗️MAREK’S PSA❗️

I recently had a past customer reach out to me, that she was losing my birds and suspected Marek’s. Now this purchase was months ago, and the birds were older growouts, this was not a recent purchase. But still, naturally my heart sank with even the thought that it originated in my flock.

Now I have not had any sick birds, weird neurological behavior, or mysterious deaths. But for my own peace of mind and for all of you, I paused my sales and submitted samples. I sent out environmental/dander swabs, oral swabs, and blood samples in my main coop (which would be the birds that were both parents as well as previously housed with the suspected birds), and also my transition pen and my growouts - because at that point I might as well test them all for good measure, right?

Results came back today, and my flock is NEGATIVE in all coops.

I wanted to post this here for all of you, and for myself and my name.

———————————————————————————
A few notes about Marek’s:
1️⃣ “Marek's Disease is by far one of the most common illnesses in small flocks and not treatable once the clinical signs have begun.
The percentage of illness and death in a flock can be anywhere from 1% to up to 50%. The clinical disease is typically seen between 6 weeks to 30 weeks of age. But Marek's Disease can develop in older birds as well.” -Penn State

2️⃣ It is spread via dander from infected birds most commonly, but can also be spread via clothes, boots, carriers that go to other farms, wild birds, etc.
“In general, poultry diseases are highly contagious because they do not require direct contact between birds, or even between locations, to spread. With Marek’s disease, a tumor-forming virus, the disease can spread five miles in the air without a carrier. That radius increases once you account for the activities of native backyard birds, or your own shoes if you run to Tractor Supply after you clean the coop, etc.” -Tri-State Vet Services

3️⃣ “Since infected birds are shedding virus, they will spread the disease as long as they are alive. If new, unvaccinated birds are brought into an infected flock, they will also become infected. This is especially true of young chicks that are highly susceptible. Even if new birds are quarantined away from the affected flock, caretakers can carry the virus-laden dander on hands, clothing, shoes, hair, and skin and spread the illness. One way that Marek's Disease is not acquired is through the hatching egg.” -Penn State.
❗️An added note to this: my chicks and birds ARE NOT vaccinated, so if a flock has vaccinated, asymptomatic carriers, birds from my flock will be more susceptible to symptoms and death than the vaccinated birds in the same area.
The reason my flock is not vaccinated is because the Marek’s vaccine is sold in LARGE hatchery amounts, and must be used within hours of mixing it up and the rest is discarded. So when I’m hatching maybe 10 chicks at a time, a vial for 1000 birds is going down the drain each time and it is unfeasible for small breeders, unfortunately.

4️⃣ Also important to note, that if you’re ever losing birds and suspect Marek’s, you can submit the whole deceased bird for a necropsy. As I was not losing any birds, and personally was not keen on the idea of culling a perfectly good hen, I submitted the dry swabs and blood samples instead. But you can submit the whole bird if you ever find yourself in this situation at home (hopefully not!).

If you’ve read this far, I hope you’re having a great day! And When In Doubt, Send It Out! 😄

Who needs lettuce?!
*this is the “and Farm” portion of my page name lol!

I’m having to remove a bunch of bottom leaves today, from not getting to them in time.
We cut a big bowl for salads and sandwiches last night and it didn’t even make a dent lol
So if anyone wants to come harvest some lettuce, let me know! 🙂 It’s going bad before we can get to it! I’d rather it go to someone than die off and get tossed aside.
