    Blue Cuckoo Araucana Cockerel

    I have a blue cuckoo araucana cockerel, Ann Charles from Sky Blue Eggs lines. He’s double tufted, sparsely, and rumpless. The only reason I’m getting rid of him is I have too many cockerels and my hens are being over bred. Can’t ship, will travel within reason to meet you. Pm me for details.

    Eglu Omlet... Thoughts?

    For those who have this coop... I wanted your thoughts on it. Honest reviews. Keeping in mind, I'm not thinking about using this as a coop. I was thinking about using it as a broody box. Some place for a hen to brood eggs and raise her chicks until they can get up into the main coop.

    Incubating Napoleon's Babies

    I'm starting this thread to document my first time incubating eggs. These eggs, if fertile, would be fathered by my rooster, Napoleon. He was stolen from us a week ago, by a human, and I’ve been collecting eggs since. Napoleon was a tufted white Araucana, a beautiful boy who was great with my...

    How Long After a Rooster Leaves the Flock...

    Will hens lay fertile eggs? I can't remember. Earlier this week my rooster disappeared. Personally I think he was stolen. He was a beautiful double tufted white araucana, and was wonderful with the ladies and with us people and the dog. I would love to hatch his eggs, if I can, and my...

    Well, they're coming out with numbers now. According to this article Florence's flooding killed 3.4 Million chickens and turkeys, and I presume that's in the commercial farms, not the small time farmer, or the back yard chicken keeper...

    Will she accept them?

    Question y'all, I have a brahma that has been persistently broody all summer. Literally. Every time I think I have her cracked, she's back in the nest box growling at me when I go to grab eggs. IF TSC still has chicks when I go there this afternoon for feed, they'll probably be over a week...
