Tomorrow here in Ireland we are supposed to get hit with the worst storm we have had in the last 50 years!
Gusts over 130 km/h (80 mp/h)
By the time it reaches Ireland it will be a tropical storm as the water temp is too cool for the hurricane to keep coming.
My area is in a red warning...
I am going to a local agri show this Sunday.
I had one of my coronation Sussex entered but the two hens have begun to moult.
I suppose I can't take them now.
I do have a young coronation Sussex which is around 4 months old.
I was wondering is it worth taking her instead or just leaving...
I was up around the chickens afew minutes ago and I heard something going on,
In the pekin chicken coop.
I went over and saw the mother hen and the pekin rooster attacking the grower.
The grower is about 2 months old and he was in with his mom,
Until today when she was running after...

As you may know I am into showing a and breeding quality poultry.
I was thinking of crossing some breeds though just for broodys or eggs.
Here's my breeds

Gold partridge pekin bantam
I also have a few laying hens...
I know most of you are in America so it's
Not officially 2017 there yet,
But here in Ireland it's 2017 just 21 minutes ago.
I would just like to wish everyone on Byc a happy new year in advance
(And maybe belated! :D) for other parts of the world.
I have a barbu d'Anver rooster for sale.
Got 2nd in his class at the ISPF (Irish society of poultry fanciers)
young bird show back in October.
He is 7 months old and crowing.
PM me for more information,
Thanks for looking
I think I am gone chicken mad! :D
I started off 6 years ago with laying hens untill I started buying breeding hens.
I started off last year with 3 different breeds barbu d'Anver,silkie and cream legbar.
I bred them this year and successfully showing them.
Then in August I added another...
Here is the second "Guess the breed" I have done.
I will put up pictures of various chickens,ducks,turkeys and geese!
You just guess the breed and I will announce the winner(s) when it is over.
No prizes it is just for fun.
1st place only but it may be a tie.
Common BYC rules apply...
I recently build 2 coops for my
Gold partridge pekin bantam quad and my
Coronation Sussex bantam trio.
They are 1.5 ft wide and 8 ft long including the coop
In these pictures the roof (which is galvanis) is not on
I was thinking of maybe getting a few geese.
I have ducks and I was wondering would they be compatible?
I was also wondering can geese fly?
My next question is which are the least aggressive geese?
Do geese know where home is like if you let them out will the remember home?
I was looking at Google images today at pictures of barbu d'Anver hens.
I breed and show barbu D'Anvers and I was just looking through pictures.
I saw a picture of one of my barbu d'Anver hens that I got professionally potographed with
The special background.
I have a website and this...
I made an article on my new
Coronation Sussex bantams and gold partridge pekin bantams
Here's a link
Thanks for looking
I couldn't find a Belgian bantam thread so I decided to make one.
Discuss hatching showing and just general breed info
Also share some pictures.
I will kick it off
Here's a few pictures of my Barbu d'Anver
I decided to get pictures
Of breeds of fowl and see who knows the name of most of them
The prize for the winner is just the happiness of winning :D
I will announce the winner on 6/23/16
And I will also let you know the names of breeds people don't get.
(If there is any)
I breed a couple of breeds
Cream legbars,silkies and Barbu danver.
As you know you always have extra roosters
And I was wondering what is cream legbar meat like
And how are they to fatten etc.
I have cream legbars and would like to know
How good they are and if they are good example of the breed.
I am new to cream legbars but I have show quality barbu d'Anvers
I don't have any pictures of hens but how does the rooster look?
