I currently have 5 random-breed chickens that are about 2 months old. We got them newly hatched. I have no idea what they are, but here is what I think they are :
1 white leg horn?
1 speckled ?
1 buff orpington ?
2 who are black with green in their feathers when the sun hits them. ?
I will be...
Wait, so I can give the kids store-bought eggs for Christmas, right? I'm just making sure. I'll tell them it's all legal, because I had a lawyer.
Them- "Is this it? Eggs? We have eggs in the coop."
Me- "But these are made by ELVES, sweetie."
Them- "Uh, mom, eggs are made by...
Wow, that long? I am going to pick up my BLRWs tomorrow. I didn't realize you had to keep them apart for a whole month.
What are your feelings on using Ocytetracycaline (sp?) before and/or after combining chickens ?
I currently have 5 that are about 2 months old and I am preparing to add several that are one month old and a couple that are 3 months old to the original flock of 2-month-olds.
Here is what I was told; hopefully keep everyone new and old where they can see each other, but not have access to...
I agree with you 100%!!
I have a neighbor who believes that altering takes the aggression out of their mousers. That is bologna! I have two altered cats who regularly leave me "gifts" of dead birds on my front porch (though amazingly leave the chickie-poos alone). A fixed cat can...
It's going to help the situation.
If you pull your gun out in an attempt to intimidate the guy, are you going to make him stop, or are you going to make yourself target?
I wouldn't pull my gun out to intimidate. That's a good way to get shot. If my gun comes out...
Eeeek! Is right! There are some places that a gun is totally inappropriate (most, IMHO) but nothing good can come from mixing a gun with alcohol, drugs and/or large crowds of people.
Though I would not personally own a gun, I am pro responsible and sensible gun ownership too. I do not...
I would go 'Eeek!'....just like I just said to myself. I want to keep stating that I am pro responsible gun ownership, but I wasn't raised with them.
It makes me very nervous to think you carry a gun with you everywhere. Why do you need to do that? Out to...
Thanks for the response!
It looks like I'm just going to have to get 4 of them and figure out what to do with the roosters when I figure out which ones are roosters.
Watch, they'll all be hens and eggs will be on the menu every morning, noon and night! LOL! (we have a family of 5 and...
Just so you don't feel alone in a potentially hostile environment (though amazingly non-hostile considering the touchy topic), I wholly agree with you!! Guns are not banned in Canada, but they are more regulated than they are in the U.S. and their annual gun death rate is...
Thanks for your response!
Do you think there is any credence to the smaller birds with skinnier legs being more likely to be hens?
Will I be looking for darker or lighter down with the darker feathers to hopefully choose a blue variation?
Thanks so much for your advice! It is really...
