    Raven killing chickens

    Maybe you could try a bigger mesh on your enclosure. I have a 1"x2" heavy wire on my run. I do not have a snow problem but a bigger mesh should lessen the build-up.

    Best Bait for Raccoons?

    Howard said it all. Your coon is in its home territory, is comfortable there and has a good food supply in that area. You would have to take it a long way away for it not to return to its home territory. Even if you succeed there are more that will take its place @ your chickens door. Therefore...

    Poop outside the coop -->

    How about just watering it in after you move the coop. The grass would probably love that.

    How do you like cooking your eggs?

    Fried-Hot grease so the edges will get crunchy and white will get cooked. 1 minute or less on each side so the yolk is still runny. Top with fresh salsa. Scrambled- Mix cut up spinach in with beaten eggs. We3ll done. Top with fresh salsa Love me some Deviled the way Momma used to make 'em

    Topic of the Week - Feeding Treats

    I know this is an older thread, just thought I would add my $.02. When I think of "treats" I discount things like calcium and other additives that are necessary for their health. My girls are on the pasture most of the day and don't like to go into the pen/coop until almost dark. So every...

    Chickens down

    PS: I am new to this high falutin, gettin mixed up in Mother Natures business style of chicken management. More used to the "Let mother Nature take it's course and learn from it" style of management. Tryin to change my POV! Does that make me an "Old Fart"?

    Chickens down

    South East Texas and yes, low 90's and humid. Nothing new in coop/run/1 acre free range area EXCEPT: a "chicken snake" caught and strangled in the "bird netting" above the run. Been there a couple days and maggots already present. I noticed they are eating the maggots. Thought that might be...

    Chickens down

    Coops and gardens

    You can google "chickens in the garden" to see people that have built wire tunnels to put between the rows. Keeps the walkways clean and fertilizes the garden a little, but you have to move the tunnels every once in a while. But beware on Youtube, there are all kinds of crazy ideas that I...
