    Why raise Quails?

    Great comments! Thanks everyone. I've been considering a small flock of quail for years. I personally enjoy having livestock but live in a neighborhood and don't have plans to live on more acreage in the near future. I love birds and it seems like quail would be fun and productive. Can anyone...

    White Rock chick I'm hoping is a pullet

    Hi everyone! Revisiting some old posts I made. I dropped off of the chicken scene for a while. The mystery of the white chicks was solved. The chick that I received as an extra "meal maker" where I chose to receive an extra pullet and was encouraged to share eggs with those in need. I was...

    Treasure Coast (Florida!) Cream Legbar Hen

    I need to rehome a Cream Legbar hen that I've raised from a chick. I'm posting on BYC rather than Facebook because I'm hoping to find someone experienced who wants a unique bird to add to their flock. I ordered her with a small batch of chicks from Meyer's Hatchery and her hatch date was...

    Calling all pictures of Barnevelders

    Thanks for sharing! I know my reply is later so you've probably collected a few more of those eggs from her. She's pretty! Is she calm? Friendly? The one Barnevelder I have is the most standoffish of my flock. If I touch her she makes noises like a hen on the nest! I don't need all of them to...

    Deep litter method

    I agree the pine needles (right?) look pretty and probably much more dry than hay! Also abundant in some areas and free!

    Deep litter method

    Thanks for all the great posts on this thread! I'm building up a deep litter in my new hoop coop that started with several large bags of Aspen shavings and I keep adding leaves from my yard to. I've read that it's recommended to start with ~6" and go from there. I'm more building up to that over...

    Chicken sitter instructions

    I didn't see an option for uploading a doc so I pasted it. Some of the formating is lost but this is the text. I also labeled the feed, jugs for refilling water, poop ahem COOP shoes, and other items in the workshop with green paper. Taking care of the girls should take 5-10 minutes. Here are...

    Chicken sitter instructions

    Thanks! We had a great trip. We got to experience some traditional NC weather. It was misty and cloudy/foggy about half the time we were there and we loved it! I don't need Florida sunshine every day while I'm in NC. We felt like we were walking through a fairy forest while we were hiking with...
