    Opa's place -Where an old rooster visits with friends

    Hi Sam I hope all is going well with you. I saw on the news yesterday that the company NECC has finally been charged for the tainted steroids they distributed to unsuspecting patients like Granny two years ago. I could not believe the beautiful home the owners live in that was paid for with...

    EweSheep, wouldnt it be nice if you could spend winters in Florida though. If I ever won the lottery I would buy a house up here in New England for the summer, preferably on the ocean. I would also buy a winter home in Florida. Right after New Year's I would go there until April, and miss the...

    That is so true about the cost of feed. If older birds are kept, they might as well just be considered pets, because they are not really contributing much. The only thing they are supplying is manure for the garden. I have thought about just getting a few new chicks every spring, to make sure...

    Opa's place -Where an old rooster visits with friends

    I bought 7 day old chicks, they are now 4 weeks old. Here's hoping that they are all hens like they are supposed to be. I could probably deal with one rooster, but since I let my chickens out in the yard everyday with my kids around I would rather not have a rooster. I am just hoping one day one...

    Fox problem

    After 4 years of free ranging chickens every afternoon we now all of a sudden have a predator. Took 2 chickens and attacked my cat the past week. Animal control says I can trap and kill it. State law is if I trap It I have to kill it. If I just keep my chickens in their run and coop will the...

    Trapping a Fox Legally?

    You should call your local animal control and see what the laws are in Maine. I live in Mass, and have had chickens for 4 years, and never had a problem with a fox before. Now in the last week two chickens have been taken out of the yard when free ranging and my cat was attacked. I called...
