    respiratory thing and a MASSIVE eye swelling

    Just some info. I found this site while surfing the net. It has some very good info, and a way to mark off on the different symptoms that anyone might have involving poultry diseases. Kind of narrows things down. http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044

    'Tis The Season' Who likes fried green tomatoes?

    For the ones whos gardens aren't bearing green maters yet, look around for polk weed, it tastes the same, and fried the same way. Use the stalk. We peel the purple off the stalk, it's kinda slimmy like okra, then cut it up and fry it.

    The Never-ending Raccoon thread. (BOBCAT CONFIRMED PAGE 15)

    Hope you get the other raccoon! We trapped four nights in a row and got four coons, skipped a night and then got a possum (all in the chicken run). Haven't caught anything since, just because a neighbor is borrowing our trap (something is getting their chickens too). The neighbor has caught 3...

    The Never-ending Raccoon thread. (BOBCAT CONFIRMED PAGE 15)

    Could you move the pot out some, and prop the back of the cage on something the same height as the pot, and the front of the trap in the pot? And maybe a tarp or something over the whole thing. Just an idea... Good luck bandit hunting!

    Marans Thread for Posting Pics of Your Eggs, Chicks and Chickens

    Thank you! He's just started to get real interested in the girls (who take off running for their lives)! Lol He still needs to perfect his crow too, as it's still a little high pitched. He's so sweet, not like roosters we've had in the past. Thanks for commenting

    Chicken Murder... I didn't think it would happen to me.

    Sorry for the loss of your PETS! As far as a fence, that's great IF you can afford one at the moment. Otherwise, it's not like your chickens were in the neighbors yard looking for a fight. A dog attack happened to us, (the dog is no more) lost more than three quarters of our flock, and we...
