    What Size (Sizes?) Should I Make Nesting Boxes

    So I’m going to be building nesting boxes. I have a huge variety from a small Spitzhauben to Brahma and Jersey Giant. So how large should these nesting boxes be. Should I make them all one size or should I make different sized ones to suit the different birds. I was planning 12” deep, 12” tall...

    How Young Can You Give Chicks Pellets

    So I’ve been feeding my chicks Naturewise starter grower crumbles and in the bag it says at 8 weeks start feeding Naturewise all flock. They come in crumbles but I can find that sold anywhere, just the pellets. Will they be able to eat them? Is there an easy way to grind it up if it isn’t...

    Breed ID for Chick With Feathered Feet

    That’s another thing I was thinking but I definitely got a Salmon Faverolle male as well, unless I was wrong about that ID.

    Breed ID for Chick With Feathered Feet

    I’m really confused and trying to figure out who this chick is lol. I believe I should only have 4 chicks with feet feathers, and they are all accounted for. Yet I have this chick with feathered feet. My best guess is that it’s an Americana? Can they have feathered feet if not “pure” ? They are...

    Building chicken coop

    The general rule is 3-4 square feet of floor space (taking into account feeders or waterers take up space) and 10 square feet of run per chicken. I would also highly recommend building bigger than you think in case you decide you want more later. Are you planning on free ranging? Also, you may...

    Baby Chicks Eating Sand Dustbath

    Hello, I was wondering if I should be worried about my chicks eating sand. I saw a few of the chicks (they are 12-14 days old) appearing to try to bathe in their pine shavings. So I went down to the stream, and got some of the sand that is on the edges, sanitized it in the oven, and gave it to...

    Would having to Roosters Sharing The Same Coop With 22 Hens be Okay?

    After reviewing your "My Coop Link" I think I may be able to quite easily make some modifications to do something similar to your coop brooder, only I won't be able to do the chicken run access. Thank you, this was very helpful

    Would having to Roosters Sharing The Same Coop With 22 Hens be Okay?

    I don't know the exact height and it slopes. I'm 5'4 and on the left side I have to crouch some to move around and on the right side I have a good amount of space over my head.

    Would having to Roosters Sharing The Same Coop With 22 Hens be Okay?

    That's what I figured. I do eat chicken, but I can't really imagine killing one of my own chickens (I know bad), but I do have a neighbor I know who would do it for me. I would really hate to make that decision. I do kinda have a plan B. We haven't gotten a tractor or any equipment yet so the...
