    I choose to feed fermented feed. I think it benefits my birds as well as meat and eggs. I gave my best friend a flock from my flock and she chooses to feed dry. She feeds good feed and it works for her. Her little flock suits her families needs. I believe each to his own. There are lots of ways...

    Have had a few single chicks for various reasons. I hang a feather duster so they can get under it like a mama. It works well

    I sell my extra eggs for $3 here in dry west texas. I have started attending a new church and am not that familiar with pastor or his family. I took 2 18 packs to the pastors wife sunday. In our conversation she told me they have 7 children. Well, my meager gift may only be one breakfast!!!!!!

    I feel this way completely. I breed some nice chickens. I want them to be good sturdy survivors for our area no matter how rare the breed. I don't raise and sell wimps that won't survive in our Texas weather.

    this is in a very large caged tomato plant. I know it's not a great idea to let them remain in my tomatoes but don't have the heart to remove them

    Sometimes when nobody else is laying yet you can tell just by looking at their vents. You will know when you see it trust me. Of course this still requires getting awfully personal with a chicken.

    Sometimes birds just die. I have no problem with guessing what happened or cutting her open and having a look if that suits you but the base line truth is sometimes chickens just die.........

    Getting the flock out of here - a diary of a crazy chicken man

    Sold some Marans babies to a nice Philipino family the other day. This is notable since I live in the middle of nowhere and there is little racial diversity. He was telling me about chickens in the philipinnes and how they raise them. He wants to try the 'merican way. He is fascinated by...

    My advice is go and have a great time. Deal with it when you get home. That will definitely keep your hands and mind off of whats going on in the bator. You can remove chicks or yuck eggs when you return. They don't usually hatch at an exact time and sometimes not even on the expected day. They...

    The sweet spot for me is 45% until lockdown, 65% at lockdown. I have always laid my eggs down and can't really speak for the carton method since I Have never tried it. Remember shipped eggs are notoriously disappointing. I still try though.
