Just thought I'd pop in and say hi to the rest of the Arizona folks. We Northern Arizonans tend to get forgotten about - most people think that Phoenix is the only city in the state
My town changed it's ordinance on poultry recently, and now I can have hens (no roos - I'm on less than 40,000 sq. ft. of land). I might have a little cockerel in my tiny flock. If so, I'm hoping I can at least keep him with a friend and have him over for a hen house night now and then - no one has to know, right?
We lost our first chicks due to underestimating the predator instincts of a dog that was never taught that live chickens are not his dinner It was a very painful lesson, and 10 birds later, we finally have him successfully contained.
These are my babies - they're still a little too young to tell who's a girl and who isn't, except my Barred Rocks.
