So, possibly moving to the Mesa area in March....
What are the rules on "house chickens"? The ordnance I read made it sound like they had to be in an outdoor coop....
Also, is there a rule about not being able to dye your chickens? ( Our silkie is currently pink)
Any recommended areas around Mesa to look for housing that is chicken-friendly?
Hello All! I live in Tempe and had a question for everyone around this area. I am planning on hatching some paint silkies for easter and my question is what type of watering system do you use in the summer? I tried a plastic container with little nipples but the algae was constantly growing. Currently I'm using just a plastic tub and still find myself washing it out at least 3 times a week. If someone could give me some advice, I would greatly appreciate it. I will look for more AZ threads to see if anyone has any ideas.
I am located in Tempe near to ASU. I bought these eggs from Linda who owns Twin Maple Ranch. I will attach one of her Ebay auctions so you can see what I have. Hopefully I will get some paint chicks along with a few solid white or black. I'll post some photos on this thread and the Arizona thread when they hatch.
