    Is there such a thing as a naturally caponized rooster?

    I have a hatchery breed golden lace Cochin I call Lola. "She" was very weak as a chick, and required a lot of butt cleaning and extra care. She feathered out very slowly from the begining, and took maybe two months longer than her brothers and sisters to feather out. She is about 10 months old...

    Help, need advice on poultry net fencing against raccoons!

    I think you are looking at a situation where the only true safe situation is a covered run with hardware cloth. The poultry netting will not help if there are trees for them to climb. How about livestock guard dog?

    do broody moms know when "lock down" is

    I think it is a fair question to ask. I learned that the bad eggs get tossed out towards the end. I think we all should remember that there are no dumb questions. Also, everyone was new to something once.

    Terror on the roost

    Mine never fight about space. They have so many different options in my coop. I have a couple of really fluffy dark spots on the floor that the silkie showgirls like. Then there are the too tall nest boxes that some like to sleep in, and some like to sleep on top of them. There are also roosting...

    Started Reading "Pastured Poultry Profit$" - Joel Salatin

    It is his book, and he can write whatever he wants in it j/k Doesn't mean you have to buy it, or even read that part. It would be different if it were a text book for a class, but it isn't. They are his thoughts, and his methods of doing things that have worked for him.

    What Am I Doing Wrong?????

    I had a baby cochin that was VERY slow to develope. I thought he was going to pass away since he was not growing or maturing. She finally caught up at about 6 months, so there is hope. I did feed her a lot more boiled egg yolks in the begining. Good luck!
