    Fishers cat

    A Fishers cat so far has massacred 12 of my purebred hens and 5 mixed breed hens, including one roo in three different houses this week. We have sat out for 5 nights now and it has so much nerve as to kill in one house while we are watching another...I have 5 large, fortified hen houses. I don't...

    PLEASE HELP! crop leaking after impaction surgery! UPDATE/photo

    I did surgery on a young hen for an impacted crop 3 days ago and all went very well. Not having absorbable sutures (my vet would not let me have any, the old "have to see the bird" routine, a couple hundred $$ and then...plus they don't do do chickens anyway"), I used super glue to close the...

    Selling roos....

    I have some nice adult roosters for sale, colorful and healthy. I got a call from a man that lives in a nearby town that not too long ago was notorious for cock fighting. I know several people still raise games there and do not want my roos to end up as "trainers" for such. Anyway I can find...

    Waiting up for the fox that killed my ducks and chicken and one of free ranging geese bit a hot wire I have around my shed and got electrocuted! I just can't win.

    A FOX killed this morning....:-((

    A FOX killed my 2 adorable male Peking ducks (Huey and Louie) this morning...they tried to fight it off while the female made it to the big pond. She did, they didn't. Am devastated. It was around 9am...I thought foxes only come around dawn or dusk. Maybe because it was raining??? I saw the...

    Killing still makes me sad...esp. youngsters

    I am so sad tonight. The last few days I noticed a very severe lack of eggs in one of the chicken houses, which is like a fortress, so I have been going out with a flashlight looking in the window and haven't seen a thing...until tonight. There sitting on top of a table next to one of my hens...

    Dark meat on just processed roosters..

    I just had my first Cornish X's processed yesterday along with 2 mixed barred roosters. Was wondering why the meat on the barred roosters is soooo dark all over, even the breasts. Is it going to taste bad? I figured they would be tough but was kinda surprised at the color. Also, been reading...
