female black coloring in black sexlinked chicken

I have not found an answer on the web. How does a Rhode island red rooster impart a black color to the female chicks in a black sex linked pairing? It is stated everywhere that the rooster provides the color gene to the female chicks. It is also given repeatedly that a RR rooster imparts the red color to the female chicks in a red sexlinked pairing. So how in a black sex linked pairing does a RR rooster impart a black color gene to the female chicks when it is the hen that has the black/barred gene? The genetics that ive read says the male has 2 color genes on zz sex chromosome and imparts one to his chicks and the female has 1 color gene on z and imparts it to only male chicks.

How to repot

When I sold my house, I dug up several plants to take with me. For two years, they have stayed in the pots I put them in and were doing very well. Now I choose to repot them only to find a solid root mass across the bottom, up the sides. It took a saw for me to see what was in the middle. I would like to save them and repot the healthy parts. These are the plants I want to save: 1) calla lily 2) Indian paint grass 3) chives 4) peony. How do I get a smaller, healthier root ball to transplant? I can make the new pots larger, but I would rather keep the same size and make the plants smaller.

Is it possible to grow a Meyer lemon outdoors?

I've seen many tutorials about growing in outdoor pots, then bringing into a sunny room for the winter, but I'd prefer to plant the tree in the ground and build a glass/plastic surround for the winter. Are there any opinions/experiences to support this strategy?

In Ground Garden

We live in Vernonia. Last year we used planter boxes and soil from Williams Fuel in Gaston. It grew well, but we would like to grow more. I need to find more information on how to start a garden site that has never been tilled. I've been told the ground is very high clay content. Can you help us find the resources we need? My husband thinks we have to remove all the grass before tilling, but I thought we could just til it under.

Conflict of Interest

The property to the north of us was purchased in March of 2014. They asked our township ZBA to consider a variance. Our neighbors and we attended the meeting and made our points for and against the request. The first variance request was denied. Two months later, they applied for another variance placing the building in the same place under a different statute, but this time they had the township building inspector represent them. He spoke for them the entire meeting. The ZBA gave him free rein as if he had some special right to speak in his role as "representative." He introduced a different statute and redefined a term that the ZBA adopted. Eventually, they granted the variance unanimously which puts the building in the same place as the first meeting. Also, our neighbors are in the middle of construction under the eye of the building inspector. Isn't it a conflict of interest for MY building inspector to represent one township citizen over another?

Compressed air or oxygen into the compost pile?

Hi there,

I am busy planning my first compost water heater and was wondering if whilst putting my water pipes into the pile I should not maybe include an 8mm airline that I could use at a later stage to push compressed oxygen into the pile. I was thinking of using gas welding oxygen. Your thoughts and comments would really be appreciated.

Best Regards,
Howard Rees

When do I tackle the weed problem?

I have recently begun landscaping some areas around our property in Yamhill, Oregon, that has been overrun with a weed/grass mix since the dawn of time. The soil is clay ridden with many rocks, but has a lot of nice topsoil from spreading out the decomposed horse manure. Last year I sprayed a weed/grass killer in the summer, and tilled/grinded all the dead weeds/grasses. As Spring approaches I have growth again that looks like bittercress and henbit. Before we had a lot of thistle and groundsel, which I'm sure is waiting to come up. Now that things are blooming, when I can start spraying and killing? Our plan is to spread grass seed late summer and grow lawn. Thank you!

Organic Pest Control for Potatoes

I grow my potatoes in a potato tower with straw and compost. I was very successful the first year with a beautiful pest-free and high-yield crop. The second year was not as great, very small potatoes and ridden with bugs. It was some kind of worm that ate the potato from the inside out. I cannot rotate crops because the towers are fixed. I am looking for some sort of soil insecticide (organic or non-organic) to treat the surrounding soil before I plant a crop this year. Any suggestions?

Are my seedlings at risk now that I have obvious pests in my greenhouse?

I have a wonderful new greenhouse. It's about 16 x 10, glass, heated to 55 degrees and fairly successful. The first picture is of my second winter season of lettuce. The second two pics are of my new aphids and white (flies?) which are invading. I think I know what I need to do, but want your advice. Should I: 1) Throw out all the lettuce bins (not a huge loss, as I've eaten it all fall and winter). 2) Let the bin soil freeze and thaw a few times outside to kill the pests. 3) Look carefully for other plants being infested and remove them. QUESTIONS: Do I have to do any additional cleaning of the greenhouse? Is there hidden infestation which I just can't see yet? I am primarily interested in starting seeds in the greenhouse in the next few weeks. Will my seedlings be at risk now that I have obvious pests in the greenhouse?
