    what are your favorite layers sans flighty/broody?

    I worry with the sex link about health issues.. I had some golden sex link ('isa browns') and one died and the other always laid eggs that were huge and always misshaped. Honestly I would get sex link for sheer egg production but I also want healthy chickens so I lean towards the heritage...

    what are your favorite layers sans flighty/broody?

    I think as long as I'm prioritizing the lack of broodiness and flightiness those are my two main concerns. If they are a little cranky I can live with that haha... My family needs lots of good eggs for dietary reasons (we spend a fortune on eggs) but we are limited to 3 hens, so I don't want to...

    what are your favorite layers sans flighty/broody?

    In past experience my ameraucanas were bottom ranked and flighty.. and my australorps broody. I want to avoid flighty (my neighbors dogs will be only too happy if I get a flighty breed) And I do not want to deal with broody hens. I am intrigued by some breeds I haven't tried yet, what do...

    making the ramp - wood frame with open hardware cloth center?

    Good questions. The ramp serves a few purposes in my situation - it's not only there for the chickens but for baby chicks, who would not be able to hop in and out. It also believe it or not stops my dogs from getting INTO the coop. Without it there, they could fly right through it, because it...
