    Huh, it’s been 6 yrs, those weeks of sleepless nights watching YouTube. They were all in my old lap top (3 laptops ago). I googled how to make cape cod style shed; how to make a-frame roofing; framing windows and framing doors; how to do shingle roofing. I watched them over and over taken...

    Burying hardware cloth to deter predators?

    “Apron” technique is easy peasy, then I weighted it down with bricks so it doesn’t heave up and for aesthetics look and so I can also step on them when checking on my chicken. I had them on now for 5 yrs, I grew mints around them for added mice repellent.

    CRAZY neighbors

    What in the world? You don’t just kill a chicken and tossed it over a fence. First cruelty, 2nd insensitive to other neighbors. They could have gave it away or butcher them humanely or disposed them properly. I have had unwanted roosters. I gave some away, I sold some really cheap and I had...

    It was a first time broody, the other first timer hatched and took care of her 6 chicks for the last 3 wks, and she started laying again this week while still mothering her chicks. I got 5 more broodies, I’m not giving them any more eggs to sit on. I got 34 chicks ages 2 to 5 wks to integrate...

    34 Eggs Today, this early morning 2 more eggs were zipping under the broody before I went to work. Came home @830s pm, I checked the broody, she left the nest and the 2 zipping chicks dead cold, together with 2 more eggs ready to hatch, that was so bizarre. :(:(:(
