    What to do with feathers.

    I read chicken feathers are too thick and sharp to make decent pillows, duck and goose feathers are soft but need special fabric or they will just come out through the fabric.

    What to do with feathers.

    Do you dry them before you put them in the bag or when you get ready to use them?

    What to do with feathers.

    I have only processed once and threw the feathers away, but got to thinking there might be better options. Can the leftover feathers be used in the nest box?

    How much daylight do ducks need to start laying eggs?

    I’m not going to add light. I’m looking to calculate at which point in the year there will be enough natural light.

    How much daylight do ducks need to start laying eggs?

    My ducks are almost 7 months old. They have been doing the deed and eating the oyster grit for almost 2 months, but not laying eggs at all, I’m assuming because it’s not the right season. The girls also have been able to fit 3 fingers between their butt bones for weeks. How many hours of light...

    Everything House Chicken!

    Here’s my house chicken Flamingo but we’ve been calling her ming for short. I brought her inside to recover from loosing a leg, and now she has no interest in going outside without me. She has a modified rabbit crate in the living room but roams the house while we are home.

    Can I keep a bunny in my closet?

    Wireless collar on rooster??

    When my rooster leads the girls off too far, I play rooster crowing videos on YouTube while standing on my porch. Never fails to get him running home fast. The girls follow him back.

    New puppy love: Beware of bringing home those cute deceiving predators!

    Yes beware! I spent good money on a livestock guardian puppy from working dog parents from a farm. Whilst attempting to train him using a leash and putting him in a kennel when I was not outside he managed to dig out of the kennel and killed chickens, then I put him on a chain for the in...

    Drake running at me!

    I had this problem and lost a few juvenile pullets! That’s why the ducks don’t get to freerange anymore!

    Something ate my chickens leg. Should I cull it?

    She’s pretty much fully recovered. She does live in the house now, but I take her outside with me on nice days. She stays real close and follows me around the yard.
