    Cutie!!! I only asked because I would just make a cage over the eggs that aren’t due so you can still get to the hatching ones. I could be wrong.... but I think I’ve seen @aart post a cage before made out of hardware cloth and zip ties? If she did, I’d bet money she has it bookmarked to...

    Sounds like a great plan for you and the way you keep chickens and what you do with them. my personally thoughts on so many things are always evolving it gets confusing in my head at times. :lau this week I’ve had an enlightening experience. I keep what I would consider extremely clean...

    Vaccinate or Not

    Blood in poop

    My meat birds are on a probiotic and electrolyte their entire lives with minerals for their legs. I have however been experimenting with feeders and feed amounts because they were wasting a ton of feed. I did note today looking back through all of my notes that these chickens were the first...

    Blood in poop

    Please nitpick!!! Thank you. after a week old, all my birds are in the same barn, with different coop/run combos. I keep a pair of chicken shoes that I only wear on my property.
