    How to let a broody hen hatch eggs

    I have 3 broody bantams that I've been unable to break, so I'm getting some hatching eggs to put under them. How do I go about doing it? Do i need to do anything, or just put the eggs under them and forget about it? Do i need to candle at all or anything else? I've never hatched eggs before...

    Ayam Cemani or Plymouth Rock?

    Would this egg be from my Ayam Cemani or my Plymouth Rock?? I got one like it yesterday and thought it was from the Rock because I had seen her in that nesting box, but the Cemani was in the box this morning and when i went out to check after I heard the egg song, this egg was in that box. I...

    Rooster or mites?

    A couple of my hens have this weird patchyness on the back/top of their heads. It seems a little crust so I can't tell if it might be mights or just from the rooster. Only the top of their heads seem affected and I don't see it on anyone else

    Butchered Roosters

    We butchered some roosters last week, and I'm wondering how long they will be good refrigerated. My husband comes home from work next Thursday and I'd like to cook them that day. This will be our first time eating something we raised.

    Update on cat attack chick!

    My chick that was attacked by my cat yesterday seems to be pulling through. She isn't moving about much, but she is eating and drinking a little. Her wounds are a bit worse than I first could see, but they don't seem life threatening. I got some penicillin to prevent infection. Thank you...

    First egg questions

    So we got our first egg today and I'm pretty sure it's from my d'uccle bantam, Snow. She is 22wks and the only girl that has squatted for me. I feel like the egg might not be small enough to be hers?? Everybody says how tiny bantam eggs are, and while it is small, I guess i thought they'd be...

    Egg selling?

    How has everyone come up with their farm/business name for selling eggs?? I am not a creative person and am struggling big time. I've thought of Willenburg's Crazy Coop and Willenburg's Butt Nuggets. I don't feel like those are right though 😕 I'd like it to be something that will work for us...
