    Creamy egg white

    Why do some of the egg whites not look clear? Sometimes white looks a creamy tan or creamy yellow? Are they good to eat? Is it because of the cold weather? I am in central Florida

    What to feed my free range chickens

    I just purchased an Anatolian Shepard pup. I pick up on the 14th this month. It will be 8 weeks old. By the time he is 12 weeks old I should have him trained to protect my hens. The only reason I don’t want roosters is that I want my hens to lay eggs for sale.

    What to feed my free range chickens

    i would have to make a special date to do that since you are 2 hours away from me. I live close to Casia Fl. You may see me one day though. Who would I ask for so you know it is me? My name is Steve.

    Why do they spend the day in the coup?

    I do believe that may be the problem. I did notice that several of the others poked at them when they tried to eat with them.

    Why do they spend the day in the coup?

    Nope they come out once in awhile they do eat and drink plenty. They just spend more time in than out. As far as bullying a little not much. Seems to be a normal amount of picking on just to show who is the head kingpin.

    Why do they spend the day in the coup?

    I recently added two Ameraucanas to my mixed 11 bird cast. I kept them separated from the others for a week then I put them in with the rest. They all roost together but during the day they spend the day on the roost in the coup?? The rest are out and about galavanting and have fun!
