    Well, we had 'spring' for a day...we call a day or so that in dear old Ontario. Another lovely day here today; but tomorrow will like bring either:hot stinkin' summer heat (with bugs and all that malarky), OR another 'polar vortex'...you just don't know...in dear Ontario?! What I DO know...

But just lets say: so far it's been a crazy trip and lost...

    I too am waiting for other responses. Here is my experience: I sell to friends, trade to other friends and give eggs to family and people who need them. Whatever works in the moment. Be aware that whatever you choose as a price for your eggs...it is NOT enough. They are lovingly...

    Protecting a wood floor?

    No, TwoShepherds. I plan to move some in once I have it all finished...just had it delivered last Thursday, and it hasn't dried up and been warm enough yet for step 1 (clear coat wood treatment). My current flock are living in an old tool shed/pigeon coop that my husband built 20 years ago...

    Comment by 'TCFarm' in article 'Chicken Nipples Anyone'

    Awesome! Thanks...been meaning to make an automatic waterer for my gals. This fits the bill, and is easy for a 'non-chicken lover' to do from the exterior of the run.

    Protecting a wood floor?

    Your coops looks amazing! I just had a very similar one (Mennonites made it) delivered Thursday. I was initially going to prime it and paint the walls and floor, but I had them insulate it and the wood they used inside is so lovely, that I have decided to use a clear-coat water sealant...

    egg eating

    The only time I have had this was introduction of new gals from another part of my farm and my older gals set them straight that time. When I was away this winter for 10 days; my farm sitters said it happened a few times. I would imagine it was related to frozen eggs leaking and seeming...

    Taming a Rooster?

    I have had a similar issue. A fav Roo was headed for soup unless he stopped attacking my knees with his spurs! I read an awesome article on this forum, written by a young chicken farmer. I did what she says and I still have the guy! (He's not in the breeding flock any longer but he's a great...
