    We have EGGS again!

    After a stressful event, the loss of three girls to a predator in one weekend, the rest of the girls basically stopped laying eggs for us. Out of 27 girls, we were getting 3-5 eggs a day tops. We sell 4-6 dozen eggs to a local artisan bakery each week, so the lack of eggs is twice the hit...

    Poop in the nesting boxes

    I have had chickens for just over one year now. Recently, the ladies have begun to perch/roost on the bar outside of the nesting boxes...heads out of the box and tail end in the box. They are pooping into the entrance ways of all the nesting boxes! YUCK! This is a new behavior and I want to...

    Roos Spurs...

    I have 36 chickens, one roo. They free range in my fenced in pasture. My roo, Elvis, is a bit agressive towards myself and my family. Out in the pasture, there's enough room for all of us to "get along". My concern is that we live in VT where the winter drives everyone into the barn. We...

    "Gorilla-Glue" tape saddles

    Our overly zealous roo, Elvis, had caused several of our girls to become barebacked. I had discovered a thread that spoke of using tape to manufacture saddles to protect the girls backs. I figured there was no harm in trying, so we tried making them out of Gorilla Glue tape (available at the...

    HELP! Attacked and killed...

    Pullet Egg Question

    My pullets have begun to lay odd, wrinkly eggs. While looking over the eggs, my daughter asked a question I did not have an answer for. So, I am asking the egg-spurts. Can a small, pullet egg be hatched by a hen? Looking forward to the responses.

    Water, water, everywhere....

    Water is everywhere! We have had rain for the past two weeks and there is more forcasted on the way for the next week. The girls are walking through the mud and water all day in the pasture. I have small streams flowing through where there should be grass and sunshine. I am a Newbie, and...

    Poopin' through the "roof"

    One of our Golden Bluff hens (Bella) became blind...reason unknown. My daughter has chosen to raise Bella as a pet. We acquired a large rabbit hutch for her to live in. We placed the hutch on the floor in a large stall in our barn, where our ten new babies live. The thought was to give her...

    Suddenly Blind?

    If anyone has any information, assistance, guidance...I'm open for suggestions. One of my chickens, Bella, was being bullied: feathers plucked, etc. Last week I went into the coop and she was sitting on the floor - away from all the others. She was not acting normally. Her eyes were...
