    found a dead chicken..

    so out of having 27 chickens in my entire experience, 8 have died of predators or unknown cause (2 predator, 6 unknown death) in 2 years. I found her dead under the roosts. Her neck seemed arched and limp. Her face was pale when it was bright red just yesterday. I didn't really pay...

    Have a friend that can't stop talking about their other friends?

    I have this friend that moved from scotland in september and I've been friends with her since then. At first I think she was grateful that I was there for her. I was always nice and loved that I had a new friend. But now that she has gotten used to this town she can't stop talking about her...

    How big does a chicken need to be that it isn't HAWK BAIT anymore?

    I personally have never had a hawk take a chicken. And I've had mine for 3 years. I also happen to live in texas where there are tons of red tailed hawks and their prey (6 ft long tx rat snake.. no joke.. they are that big and they actually will eat button quail ). Maybe I am just lucky. I...

    Cochin "pullet" chick just mated with me??

    "she" is 8 weeks old and extremely cuddly. I would hate to see her go but if she is a boy she may have to go. She is a blue bantam and her comb is more red and more developed than the others. Now that I look at her she seems to have hackle feathers.. (do they look like scruffy feathers that...

    Interactive animals?

    Okay. So I have narrowed my search for a new animal to raise on our small acreage of 3 acres. The animal must be something an inexperienced (more or less) person can breed on small scale. The animal must also be moderately quite and the noise they make must be non annoying for our neighbor's...

    What sorts of animals should I raise?

    I have chickens already. We have close to 3 acres and noise could be an issue. So our deed says we can have split hooved animals but no non split hooved (horses or donkeys) animals or poultry. But our city says we cannot have roosters so my mom made us give ours away. But according to the new...

    Mom made us give away our rooster. :(

    It wasn't out of hatred but it was because we don't live in an area where a roosters are permitted. We dropped him off at the man's house and I know he's happy there. But not hearing him crow somehow makes me feel sick... like something is missing. Funny, after visiting his farm in makes me...

    What Breed Do You Recommend?

    Quote: Love them too! I would say they have less personality than a orpington (my orp seems to have a spice to her mind :S) but they are so sweet and fluffy. And their feathers are like those of ducks!

    Can someone tell me about seramas?

    I need some info as I saw some at the feed store (were not for sale) and I loved them! They were nearly full grown and very small. What do I need to know about them? Are they heat tolerant? What are their housing needs? Are they somewhat friendly? Where can I get some in texas?

    Where can I get some lady amherst pheasants?

    1 more q before I'm set on getting some. We had a serious problem a few years ago with snakes eating our button quail. But they have never touched our chickens. Do you think they would consider pheasants as fair game? oh... we live in east texas btw

    Got a new project for the year - the rainbow carton :)

    Well I guess that would be obvious, since they were bred in Australia. Lol. I'll put that to my list.

    Got a new project for the year - the rainbow carton :)

    I really like australorps because they seem to have the personality of orpingtons (I know the orp is the ''mother'' of the australorp) but do you think they would get to hot with the black feathering? I get really worried about that.

    Got a new project for the year - the rainbow carton :)

    okay, so what lays the richest dark brown egg? Barnevelder vs. welsummer vs. marans? And I do like orps but mine rarely lays. I do love their pink eggs though! Should I get some more? And what do you recommend for normal brown?

    Got a new project for the year - the rainbow carton :)

    I need help starting a small business of selling cartons of eggs containing all shades possible! I already have chickens and i'm 14 but I think it would be nice to earn some cash for the pocket. I would like to stick with large eggs and good layers. I am a fan of the docile breeds though I do...
