    Infertile sebright eggs

    I have golden Sebrights. I hatched two rounds of eggs this year mail order with good success. I let a broody hatch last year with good success also.

    what a way to start the day

    Hardwire cloth. Nothing big enough to get in side my run/coop can hurt the girls.

    Bees- Friend or Foe?

    I have honey bee hives beside my coop. Not a problem. Are they honey bees or something else? Pic's would be good.

    Chickens and Bobwhites, can they live together?

    My flock of Sebrights will be up to 9 shortly with one Roo. I was wondering If I hatch some Bobwhite eggs would the chickens tolerate them in the same coop?

    Looking for recommendations on a SOLAR fence charger

    I am running two hot wires. One about 10" and one about 15" off the ground all the way around the run. Maybe 120' total. My coop is hardened and the run is all Hardwire cloth. I have had deaths from Weasels and coon this year. Hoping all the combined security will prevent further deaths.

    Looking for recommendations on a SOLAR fence charger

    This is what I put up. I tried it my self. It gives a pretty good shock, enough so I have no desire to try it again. I put in a 4' ground rod to make sure grounding will stay good.

    Tragedy in the coop

    One came out of it just fine. I ended up having to put the other down. She had bad head injuries and could not walk. I tried giving water and food but she could barley keep her head up.

    Tragedy in the coop

    I am not releasing them. If I catch them they win a free .22 to the head.

    Tragedy in the coop

    I did touch it. I even took off my shoos. It gave me a pretty good jolt.

    Fox attack! 12 chickens dead and abandoned.

    Sorry for your loss. Fox are about the only thing I have not dealt with yet.

    Tragedy in the coop

    Does this look OK for an electric setup?

    Tragedy in the coop

    I did dispatch the coon that did the killing yesterday. I caught another in the live trap last night. It will be dispatched also as well as all future catches. I have hardened my coop and encased the run with hardwire cloth due to a weasel attack several months ago. This coon got in through the...
