'More than one way to skin a cat'?..that's an old one, not sure of it's origin.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

Yup yup. I'd be curious to find out too, and especially curious what it's cat and not rabbit or lynx or some other common animal lol maybe they meant big cats

Have you ever heard this saying when someone's not listening? "They've got two pair of socks on."
One of my grammys's favorites. Meant that the other pair of socks was stuffed in their ears....hahaha
