    Let's talk flock! What is your flock size to yard/land ratio?

    I agree that bare spots are to be expected with chickens...They do have their favorite areas to scratch and dust bathe in. lol The thing is, bare spots don't equate to toxic, at least not for people. I think that a lot of people, who know nothing about raising chickens, have a lot of...

    Let's talk flock! What is your flock size to yard/land ratio?

    I think I am lucky to have a pretty good setup as far as being able to let my birds free range without too many predator problems, although I have had a few I wish had been avoided. -What got me thinking about flock size and land space was a conversation I had with someone the other day. They...

    I have some who can, and one who cannot fly. She hops, but you would never mistake it for flying lol. The ones who could fly were Showgirl frizzles...They never had any problem flying up to about 4 ft.

    I agree coop space is a definite must have. I live in Florida so my birds don't spend much time in the coops, even in winter; I have to worry more about space and shade so they aren't too hot in summer.

    Yeah, predators like dictating how you are able to raise your flock. Luckily, I have a boxer, who is really good at keeping them at bay. (She has gotten into it a few times with opossum and a huge raccoon in the early morning before they are let out for the day.)

    Let's talk flock! What is your flock size to yard/land ratio?

    I have about 35-40 chickens, consisting of both LF fowl and bantams who free range all day on about half an acre. They each have there favorite spots in the yard where they hang out in groups...unfortunately, my back patio is a favorite spot to a few. lol

    Breed please!!!

    Breed please!!!

    With 4 toes that rules out Silkies so maybe they are Cochin bantams...(I love my Cochin bantams! lol so that's what I think of first) Maybe someone else will reply with some other ideas

    Breed please!!!

    Did you order them from a hatchery? If so, which one? Might help to know what they offer as far as bantam breeds.
