    Non-flying breeds?

    Just wondering if some, like the Broad Breasted types are less apt to be able to fly? My property is fenced in with 4' field fencing, and we have a lot of wild turkeys that come right up to the fence. Are the bigger breeds less likely to fly over the fence? I assume, when they are younger and...

    I just got another one of those pop-up surveys, this is like the fourth one. Each time they pop up, when I move the mouse over to click on it, the "yes" or "no thanks" buttons drop out of sight. I tried to drag it up, nope. I tried to scroll it up, nope. Then after about 10 seconds, they...

    WTB: Splash Copper Marans eggs

    I am looking for some eggs from Splash Copper Marans. Can also be just Splash, but would prefer them showing copper. Pics of the adults is a must, as I need assurance of CLEAN combs (NO sprigs or carnations!), and need HEAVY shank/toe feathering. The bigger and chunkier the type, the better too...

    DICKEY'S vs. SPORTSMAN ... Any reviews?

    Well that tears it! After my last hatch disaster, I'm going to buy either a Sportsman or a Dickey's incubator. Does anyone have any experience with the Dickey's? Has anyone ever used both brands, and if so, which did you prefer? Pros and cons of both models appreciated greatly!! Ideally, I...

    Got a Problem here.. NEED HELP PLEASE!

    I may need some help here. I went out to check on the chooks around noon, and noticed one of the 5 month old BC Marans pullets standing off by herself, fluffed up. It was a fairly warm day, 50s, but cloudy and damp. Got her in the coop to inspect her, thought maybe crop was looking a bit larger...

    Political Ads????

    What is up with the political ads now on the home page?? Seems a tad hypicritical that we can't get into political conversations, but now are having politics shoved down our throats with banner ads? Frankly, I find it digusting, especially seeing who the ad is bashing! Being from Missouri, and...

    Suggestions for Safe Plants in Run

    My coop/run is almost done! My chooks will be so happy, as will I. The top of the run is fenced in and has support beams extending from the coop to the side top rails. This looked like a perfect place for me to hang some flower baskets! Going one step further, I thought about a vining type of...

    BCM Candling at day 8

    This is my first time hatching, and today was my first time candling. Of course, it would have to be on hard to see through eggs of the BCM! Out of 12 eggs, I think, I see 8 of them forming, and the other 4 I will call "iffy" at this point. When would be a good time to candle next?? I was...

    Freezing or Frying?

    Hi all, I am about to venture into my first time incubating. Bought a Little Giant, with fan and turner (yes, I know, but the price was great!), and I've had it running for a day now, and it was holding pretty steady at 99.5. Last night we had a huge storm here in MO., and the outside temps...
