  1. Hi There

    My dog found an egg in the field near where we live in South Africa. We have hatched chickens before so decided to hatch the egg as it was still warm when the dog brought it out the bush.
    We hatched it from it’s egg and we brought it up in a big black box with necessary warmth, food and water.
    He is a male guinea fowl and has a serious attitude.
    I have learnt to deal with him even thought he occasionally tests my patience and charges me. He has gone through phases just like a child but if you don’t take nonsense from there or show fear they will not peck you.
    Please note he has a cage in one of the rooms and eats and sleeps in the cage.
    The problem we have now is he is very aggressive towards my husband, too the point where is a complete nuisance and we don’t know what to do. We just lock him out when my husband is around.
    We are not sure if it’s a dominance thing due to him being the only guinea fowl.
    He is not interested in other guinea fowl. I have tried putting him with a wild flock and they just chase him away.
    When my husband cuts his hair it gets even worse and the guinea fowl is more aggressive. His food does seem to make a difference to his behaviour. I feed him chicken grower mash as that’s all he will eat. He eats grass outside but not enough to fill him. He is not really interested in worms and stuff.
    My cats and dogs are scared of him as well as he charges and holds on to them.
    Needless to say we both love him like the rest of the animals and if anyone has some insight, we would be most great full.

  2. I have three Muscovy eggs I have been taking care, my female laid her nest outside the fence line and a predator got her a couple weeks ago. One of the eggs started moving around last night and you could hear a chirping noise. It has been 24 hours since this started and still no cracks in the egg. Should I be concerned the egg is too stiff?

  3. Hi I found a bird egg in my garden and a cat got to its mother was wondering it has a little crck slightly leaking I put wax over the crack as the Internet told me to and put it on a hot water bottle with towels to keep it warm I have tried to see if it is fertile but I think the mother has only been sitting on it for about two days was wondering if I leave it and keep it warm will it still be ok and hatch eventually the more looked like something between a pigeon and a dove

  4. Would like to buy 10 or so fertile embden geese eggs for hatching. And or a grown or half grown male embden goose. Thanks.

  6. Hi Ron,

    Sorry to hear about the keet.

    I have never fed young keets mealworm I have only ever given them chick crumbs and then lettuce when they are about 2 weeks old.
    The mealworm may have been too rich for the keets digestive system or there could have been something wrong with the mealworm.
    I hope the other keets are ok.

    I have added your query to my farmingfriends forum http://farmingfriends.com/forums/topic.php?id=1619 here to see if anyone else experienced this.
    Kind regards

  8. Hi Megan,
    Thanks for your enquiry. I don’t have any day old chicks at the moment. If you are looking for quail chicks then please feel free to write your enquiry on the farmingfriends forum here http://farmingfriends.com/forums/forum.php?id=19 with how many you are looking for and where you are located so that quail breeders can respond if they are in your area.
    Kind regards

  11. Hi David,
    Thanks for your interesting comment. It is interesting to hear about cypriot hedgehogs.
    Bill Oddie is still on tv with Spring watch and Autumn watch. It woul;d be great to think that he was reading my blog.
    I hope you have enjoyed seeing your letters on the web. meliaMary one of my regular forum readers and contributors, a farmingfriend like yourself, has commented on your letters. She has enjoyed reading them as she has friends in Cyprus.
    Best Wishes

  12. Hi Sara
    Sorry its me again but I have just read your message about the male badgers. Sadly we do not have these in Cyprus although we do have a cypriot hedgehog who is not to be trifled with. They have long snouts somewhat like a shrew and can be very aggressive and will attack if cornered. Great. Anyway back to your badgers. I do hope that Bill Oddie reads your website as he has a great affinity for wild life and not only birds in which I believe he takes a great interest. I am sure that when I was last in UK he was on BBC with a live badger watch programme. I think the programme originated through BBC Bristol so you may like to contact them.
    Regards
    David

  13. Hi David,
    Thanks for visiting again. I did get your message thanks. I am not sure if they are going to make a dvd of the series but they do show it on BBC iplayer for 7 days afterwards however I have just read the BBC iplayer website and this cannot be accessed by other countries as it has something to do with other countries TV networks and downloads taking too long. I will ask when and if the show is to be aired in Cyprus. I have emailed the BBC and am awaiting an answer. I have also enquired if they are bringing it out on dvd.
    Thank you for taking such an interest.
    I hope you got my email with the photos of the Troodoos Mountains attached.
    Kind regards

  14. Hi Sara
    I am not sure if you got my comment regarding your impending appearance on the Ready Steady Cook programme. There are many people in Cyprus who would be interested in a dvd of the show if one can be made available. I currently get dvd s courtesy of the Cyprus Weekly of Tonia Buxton a Cypriot who lives in London. She cooks wonderful cypriot dishes. I am not sure about copyright rules but if a dvd can be purchased I would be very interested.
    Best wishes
