    Hi everyone First time chicken owner here. I've had my girls for about 9 months now (bought as pullets), but I haven't run into this problem before! My sweet girl Penny is having issues and I just need to check with you about what it could be. I have been reading other forum posts and...

    How to treat Poultry Fleas/Stick Tight Fleas?

    Hi all, Just thought I would update. I applied Vaseline again last night, and they're looking pretty good, but not perfect today. As for the coop, hubby replaced all the bedding. The only products I could find to use were a Lice & Mite Powder (sulfur and rotenone), and a mite & lice spray for...

    My only friend has died.

    You obviously cared for her a lot, and she was so lucky to have such a great owner like you (I'm sure you were lucky to have her too). I am so sorry to here that she passed away, that must be very hard for you. I am always inspired to see people with close bonds to an animal like a chicken...

    How to treat Poultry Fleas/Stick Tight Fleas?

    I also found this flea bomb that uses permethrin. It's for dogs and cats, but I wonder whether anybody has had any luck with something similar? https://www.petstock.com.au/product/dog/fido-s-flea-bomb-125gm-1/53924

    How to treat Poultry Fleas/Stick Tight Fleas?

    I thought I'd add that I only have three hens (who all have the fleas), but their coop is large (3mx3m or ~10ftx10ft).

    Yes or No to No-Crow Collar?

    Is there reason to believe your neighbours would be upset by a rooster? I suppose it all depends on where you live. If you live rural, with plenty of room between you and the neighbours, it's unlikely that the crowing would be loud enough to upset them from inside their house. I think you would...

    What do you do with all your eggs?!

    I have not had a custard bread pudding since my mum made them! I think I'll have to give it a go. We do love banana nut bread in this household!

    What do you do with all your eggs?!

    I love that you can give some to your Nanna! I'm not sure about where you live, but people around here LOVE to buy eggs from their neighbours/random houses instead of the grocery store!

    What do you do with all your eggs?!

    That's such a shame! I love to see people around town selling their eggs. You have quite a few hens! Like I mentioned, we have three hens, which is plenty of eggs for just my husband, myself, and our dog (who loves egg)! Any excess, and I'm certain there will be, we will give to my mum or his mum.

    What do you do with all your eggs?!

    Hi everyone! I have only THREE hens, which are just about to lay (one started six days ago), but I know many of you have a dozen, two dozen, maybe more, hens! And it got me to thinking. Do you sell your eggs? Give them to family? Just eat a LOT of eggs?! Maybe some of your hens are senior...
