Man it's been forever guys.
I haven't signed in for months.
I've tried with the laptop but it just wont let me on. So I have to use this old computer that freezes every 10 minutes and I reckon is about to crash!
I've missed you guys and I've missed talking chicken with you!
I'm sure there's...
Have a big 'ole bucketload of roos to get rid of.
Have some malays, some RIR mixes, some BR mixes, and a bunch of other breeds (pure).
Most came from IDEAL hatchery and are about 6 months old. Some are about a year old now.
Prices range from $4-$8
So, I have 13 adults hens in a pen with 8 nesting boxes. The dimension of the inside of the coop, their side, is 12 x 10. It is those hens and 3 roosters.
I used to get about close to 5 dz eggs a week, about 8-10 eggs a day, now I've only been getting 1 egg a day.
They have a huge run on the...

"There are no mountain lions in Pennsylvania"
As told by the game wardens.
We all know thats not true.
About a half hour ago I was sitting comfortably on my couch. I heard my neighbors voice outside the window. I threw on my shoes and rushed out the door to greet him at the gate to my dog yard, he had a shotgun in his hand.
"Your brown turkey just almost got it" he said.
At first I didn't think...
Since I've been on this forum again.
I bet you all thought I was gone for good!
Its been sososo busy around my house. The coop that was built over the summer is officially finished, except for the back needs 2 windows put in and the end closest to the house needs egg boxes because the...
I have a bunch of horses that have their pasture right next to where the birds run around during the day, and next to the chicken PALACE ( ) and runs. The horses keep the predators at bay for the most part.
The only time my birds have gotten snatched is when they've been out and not suppose...
Any helpful information for butchering a chicken and not feeling guilty?
I'm an animal lover, never butchered my own chicken before. Been considering though, but I know if I do it I'll have guilty feelings.
It's just hard for me to kill something I hatched, like to bring it into the world and...
I declare we do writing chains
For those of you who don't know what a writing chain is, it is a chain that consists of 1 paragraph written by each person. Only one paragraph per post, and it usually ends up being a totally random funny story.
The paragraphs must consist of at least 5...
Awhile back I bought an ear piercing kit from walmart and ended up piercing my ears twice more, not in the cartilage though, now I have a row of three earrings on each of my ears.
Problem is though, the studs from walmart are pretty cruddy, as in they aren't the best studs around... and it has...
Saw an add on eggbid:
Now I am wondering what the heck a greater prairie chicken is? The add is in the grouse and partridge section, so I'm assuming it is not a chicken.
Now my question for you is, what the heck is a Greater...
I might be interested in some blue orpingtons.
I think they're a very neat color and would love to have some.
Just post here if you have some, roo or hens, and how much.
Edited to say:
I need more hens for my flock, have some older girls who are starting to quit and some that...
There are tons of you who have amazing looking birds that arent pure breeds. I have a few.
What this thread is for, is for you to post about your amazing looking chicken that YOU created. It can be from the same breed, but you've just mixed different colors.
For example, today I saw a thread...
I want to know what your favorite kind of chicken is!
Let's figure out what the most popular type of chicken that is raised by the BYC'ers!
I'll tally it all down.
For me, I'll have to go with my RIR's. They are just so friendly and are always waiting for me when I go in the...
Ever wondered how big a chicken could get?
Well, you've come to the right place. Here is a prime example!
Amaze your friends with your 3 foot tall chicken!
Malays are a game breed.
These roos are from this spring. They are just beginning to crow.
It takes about 2 years for them to reach full...
Exactly what I was hoping not to have!
I don't know if you all heard about my missing blue slate hen, but yes, awhile back in late spring she went to nest on a batch of eggs and never came back, well yesterday I went down towards the woods to bury a couple birds that died, and I found some of...
I have 2 goslings available.
They are a mix of sebastopol and pilgrim. Very curious as to know what they look like.
They have nice temperments and are about a month and 1/2 old.
One is very gray, so I'm assuming since pilgrims are sex-linked that the 2 goslings are sex linked and one is male...
