    I have a very affectionate hen. She talks to me, and I love her as much as any other pet.

    Comment by 'Nutcup' in article 'Bee's key points to successful and safe free ranging.'

    I have a 6 year old alpha Cochin hen that's growing spurs. She protects the other 2 hens as they have almost complete freedom in my backyard. She is the noisiest hen I've ever had, sometimes she drives me nuts. I also have plenty of trees, and the vegetable garden is fenced off to keep those...

    Why is my chicken behaving like this

    I have a 5 year old Cochin hen that screams almost like a peahen. She bellers in the morning and evening like a rooster. She drives me nuts, I can't go out into the yard without her noise.

    Comment by 'Nutcup' in item 'Cochin'

    Toddlers are Quackers

    When I was young they grew tomatoes real close to our home. They were NOT staked; they grew all over the ground. You don't have to stake them, that's just for convenience. We all keep learning. What still makes me ill is how animals are mass slaughtered. I couldn't do that job.
