I raise chickens in upstate NY. I have a large flock. I lost 35 birds this year due to weasels and minks. For more information you can visit my youtube account "Portugal5698". I raise pigeons, ducks, turkeys, many diferent breeds of chickens. If you have any question about dealing with birds, or selecting breeds, or dealing with roosters and chicken predators, then feel free to question me and i will have your answer.
