    how do i train my roommate ?

    It's going to be nearly impossible for her to train the dog not to attack the chickens if it's already attacked and killed one. So I wouldn't blame your roommate for that. Just keep the dogs away from them, let her know how you feel about it - and ask her to make sure she doesn't accidentally...

    For a dark egg layer, which would you recommend and why: Welsummer vs. Barnvelder vs. Marans

    I love my marans. They lay jumbo dark chocolate colored eggs, never go broody, and they're just as calm and relaxed as a chicken can be. The only downside is mine are huge and it costs a lot to feed them compared to my ameraucanas. I like really big chickens though so I dont mind too much . Just...

    3 have hatched so far! These weren't supposed to hatch until tomorrow but for some reason my marans always hatch a little early compared to the other breeds. Crossing my fingers that some of the silkie x ameraucana eggs hatch! Looks like there's one olive egger and two marans. I'll post pics...

    olive egger chicks - Austin, TX area

    We just hatched out 4 little olive egger chicks. They're straight run (unsexed) $8 each. These first generation olive eggers were produced from our black copper marans cockerel mating our wheaten and blue wheaten ameraucanas. All are blue and have feathered legs. From what I can tell, 3 of them...

    Comment by 'Frost Homestead' in item 'Ameraucana'

    I love my ameraucanas too, theyre wonderful birds. Perhaps flighty was the wrong word. They're not LAP CHICKENS. They are "friendly" in the sense that they will come near me, but they dont seek out human attention. We dont add artificial light for our birds so they slow down laying in the fall...
