    Hello Alex. I've got so used to Cillin crowing in the mornings I've managed to sleep through it a couple of times.:th

    Thank you. No, hens can and will lay without going broody. Many hens will go broody with no rooster in the flock.

    I've not kept a rooster flock. I would expect their behaviour to be very different.

    Thank you. Sometimes it takes some rooster experience to make sense of what I've written. It's a bit of a minus point to the article unfortunately.

    Review by 'Shadrach' in article 'Getting, caring for and keeping Ex-Battery Hens'

    You get 5 stars from me just for doing it. I liked the article but felt there was information missing that might help future Ex Batt keepers. Making sure you can access vet care for chickens is a sensible thing to do before you get them. I know BHWT can assist in this. Feed the same feed if...

    Review by 'Shadrach' in article 'Fluffy Butt Acres: The Coop'

    Despite having seen lots of pictures and videos on your thread I was often confused as to where everything was. I know now. Well detailed. The PDFs work fine for me. Love all the pictures.

    Review by 'Shadrach' in article 'Egg-bound chicken causing obturator paralysis - A case study'

    Doesn't get much better than this. Fabulous article. The right medication (Metacam) The right syringe technique (disconnect the syringe body from the needle) Good obsevations on the causes of egg binding and very unusual, recognising where the egg is stuck. I'm a bit of a softie so I feed...

    Review by 'Shadrach' in article 'Raising a blind or partially sighted chicken'

    I think this is the best article I've read on BYC this year. It's informative for all chicken keepers. There's interesting footage showing what feed pick up rate one can expect from an adult hen. I like the links. It's well written and deals with the subject in a humane, but realistic manner...

    Might be worth checking your article title.;) :pI think it's meant to read Health bars. Not sure all that sugar is healthy though.

    Review by 'Shadrach' in article 'Will it harm my birds? (Identification of diurnal raptors for birdkeepers)'

    I realise that it's time consuming, but pictures of all of these raptors in flight might be helpful. Falcons here (Spain) will make a dive for chicks and small juvenile chickens. Mostly they are unsuccessful but worth noting. Otherwise a great idea for an article and well put together.

    Teams of roosters can be difficult. I have three in one tribe atm and they generally get along with the minimum of fuss.

    It's terribly sad when something like that happens. To lose all her chicks in one go is very hard. Will you let her sit again?

    I believe the fire department have been called to get chickens out of trees.:D
