If it's hotterenhell in your area, Remember to observe your birds during the day (if you can) and see if they look uncomfortable.
If they are standing around in the shade with their mouths hanging open, looking miserable, try and help them out.
Some fresh cold water in their drinkers, some...
Have you ever done something by accident or coincidence, and later found out it was something you are supposed to do?
I spilled a bunch of food grade DE in the run, said @#$%&*!, and raked it around and diluted it with dirt as best I could, and figured it probably wouldn't hurt them. (this was...
i cut some cheapey camo netting into strips and put it all along one side of the run

Forgive me if this thread has already been made.
but sometimes it takes a minute to figure out why they do the things they do.

I had four pullets.
So, the past few days, I've been letting them fart around in the unfinished chicken run while I'm out there working on wiring it the rest of the way shut. Being outside with the sun on their backs and their feet in the grass is much better for their health and well-being...
With all the discussion about coyotes, and raccoons, and blowing away various predators, I thought we could have a thread for showing off/discussing GUNS!
Let's see your noisemakers.
Here's a few of mine.. I like my guns old and cheap.
I have a lot of cardboard boxes left from moving, and I was thinking about using some of them to help me work out a coop design/floorplan.
Anyone ever tried making scale models of coops? I may post pics later if I decide to try it...
Here's a picture of the crummy dog run along my back fence. I don't have a dog, and if I did, I wouldn't cram it in there, so I was thinking of making a chickenwire roof over part of it, and building a coop for 2 or 3 hens. Then my tiny dog run becomes a luxurious chicken run.
