I started keeping 3 permanent roosters in my flock in the fall of 2017 and I'm so glad I decided to. Roosters don't really have the greatest reputation but if you get to know one, they can be very sweet. Please note though that despite the breed, age, etc roosters each have there own personality and if you do have a nasty bird then I do recommend getting rid of it. Don't spend crazy amounts of time trying to make friends with the rooster because MOST if they're mean it's hard to turn them...

In June 2015 we ordered 10 chicks from our local feed store. When we opened the little box of peepers we saw a wonderful surprise; instead of 10 chicks we got 11! Usually chicks die because of diseases and such so that's why we got an extra but thankfully we had no deaths. In the box we had: 3 Rhode Island Reds 4 Black Sex Links 4 White Sussexs What a joy these chicks were!!! Their little peeps were such a glorious sound and me and my siblings couldn't stop playing with them. My mom...

Dogs Dogs usually don't eat chickens but they love to chase them. I've had a couple of dogs chase our chickens and they thankfully didn't kill anyone but...

Some people like to take them out of their suffering and use the axe and we have had to use it once, and I agree, it is really sad but they can't suffer in pain till they die. If it is necessary you can use the axe but I like to take it in a new level. Here are some things that I do for my old...
