    My girls have gone on strike! Help!

    All three of my girls have stopped laying eggs. I have had 2 eggs in the last 10 days. Nobody is molting. They are healthy, well fed, have lots of space to roam, fresh water, etc. I have searched every inch of the yard and there are no hidden eggs. Could it be because it is so freaking hot...

    I knew it.

    I bought 10 babies as a straight run and vowed to eat anyone who wasn't a pullet. About 6 out of the 10 are looking very roo-like...and way too cute! I have purposely not snuggled up on this batch to distance myself. The only thing that has accomplished is the babies run the other way when I...

    Honest opinions wanted about garage coop

    The deal is we don't use our attached garage for anything other than storage. I have been seriously considering adding a pet door and roughing in an enclosure. Sort of like a dog run and using THAT as their hen house. I would have easy access to gather eggs, they could get in from crappy weather...
