Hello,

 My name is Steven. I have been raising Chickens and other birds for about 2 years now. I will say it is really fun and addictive. I really enjoy incubating eggs and watching them grow into beautiful birds.

 

I am currently looking to buy or trade for some Ancona Chickens if you have some for sale please let me know.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Thank you!  The babies like it a lot - its so easy to clean :-) Its in our guest house and my brother is visiting after his military tour overseas. He is going to be sharing with the babies and will have to shower in the main house :-) I haven't told him yet...

I need help understanding where to ask my question about introducing Hens.  I have one. She is one year old.  I have 9 babies.  I know you are supposed to separate them once they are old enough to be in the hen house.  Then let them free range during the day together for a while and then place the one hen into the new flock in the night when they are going to sleep.  I would like to do more if I can to increase the chances of an easy transition which I suppose will occur sometime in the spring.  Can I place my single hen in the bathtub with the babies?  For a few minutes each day totally supervised?  To me a human it seems like this would create an early acceptance on the babies part.  Not so sure about my single hen accepting them.

Let the single hen and the littles get used to seeing each other but not touch each other before putting them together. The "look but don't touch" method of integration works well. You can read more about it here:
