Getting & Setting up our poultry pets

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi,

New to BYC.

 

We are in the Anola, Manitoba area in Canada.

 

I have our poultry barn 80% completed and we are getting ready to get the birds.

 

We are hoping to acquire the following pullets: Ameraucana – Easter Egger, Black Copper Maran, Golden Laced Wyandotte, Lakenvelder, Black Star, Red  Star, Rhode Island Red, and a:  Welsummer Rooster

 

Love to hear from anyone who may know where to find them.

Welcome, I can't help you find chicks as I'm only familiar with American hatcheries. Hope you can locate some, those are all great breeds.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Welcome to BYC!

 

If you want SOP pure breeds, you'll have to find a reputable breeder.

 

Not sure if there's any Canadian chat threads, but try some searching.

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."
