Chickens are pets, not food! (Except eggs)

Hey y'all!
My name is Catherine and I am still new to this chicken scene! I started out with 4 Ameracauna chicks who were 1 week old. Just recently I lost two of them to a curious dog. Now, I have the two surviving Ameracaunas, who are four weeks old, and two 4 day old Rhode Island Reds!

Welcome to BYC.

 

Mine are pets too, but what else would a 10-15 ounce bird be?  My smallest hen could brood her eggs in the palm of my hand-another uses a cereal bowl for a nest.

My chickens are pets and food. I have birds that will be egg layers/chick makers and birds that will be in the freezer by fall

Dogs/ cats,  can cause a lot of grief.  Please make sure  they cannot get to your chickens.   The dog succeeded, he will keep trying.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

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
