Chick-less Chicken Obsessor in Monroe

   Nicolets, a chicken-owner-wannabe!     It all started with ... hmm ... where did it start? Perhaps it was my chicken-owning friend who won't stop talking about chickens  (that would be me now, though!), or perhaps I just stumbled across My Pet Chicken one way or another. But it would have been around May 2010, when I joined BYC. Basically, I had, at that time, discovered the wonderful world of chickens, tried to enter it (meaning, trying to 'get me some chickens'), and eventually failed, intending to forget about chickens for a few years.    Two years later, I... read more

I started batch #2 on 1/20/2012, so far looks like 26 are... read more

Breeding pens plans and other random thoughts

Initially, I had thought to set up my breeders in smaller pens. Then i contemplated doing a large group at once, for now. But now, seeing the feather damage the rooster is causing on his girls, I'm thinking about something someone else mentioned. She has a rooster pen, and puts the girls and guys together one day a couple days a week, and the rooster goes back to the 'bachelor' pen when he's done. That would involve a bit more work, but at the same time, with no roosters loose, all the girls could free range all day without worry of cross breeding to unwanted roosters...... read more

Hi there! You may have noticed me a couple times bouncing around the threads. I show my poultry, it's all about showing, and making money back for the $18.00 (for 1 bag of 50lbs feed).
