    Cow feed, Sweet Feed.

    A little bit used as a treat should be alright, but I would not give too much. My ladies get about a cup of scratch a day when it gets cold out as well as table scraps year round.

    Installed a automatic chicken door

    My ladies are always back on the roost before last light, so the light sensor works great for me. I suppose if I had a few that stayed out after dark, I would have to add the timer to my setup. Altogether, I have right around $1000 into my coop; but I have already made around $100 selling eggs...

    Installed a automatic chicken door

    I needed an auto door to keep out the racoon family that makes rounds every night. I considered the drapery motor but because I did not have electricity to the coop (about 75 ft away from the nearest) I ended up purchasing the VSBi from foys. Easy install and it works on 4 AA batteries. They...

    Experience wirth Automatic door from Foys

    Again... It runs on 4 AA batteries!!! I had considered the drapery motor option, but figured after materials and labor I was better off with the VSBi; also, I have no electricity to my coop. My dw has a bun in the oven and the smell of the chicken coop (and nearly everything else) gives her...

    Was I too late w/nest boxes?

    If the hens are laying in the nest boxes now, would it be okay to take out the golf balls now. I still have one laying on the floor in a corner and I am considering putting a laying box there as she has been laying since early july and always lays in that corner.

    Do egg bound hens usually die??

    I think I had a hen get eggbound on me yesterday. She had only just started laying and had never really got around to laying a regular hard egg; just soft shelled or no shelled membranes. I feed back their shells and added free choice oyster shell. What else could I have done differently. I...

    Is it too late?

    I would say go for it... if you wait til spring, it will be july before you see any eggs. chickens can take the cold so long as they are a breed without huge combs and so long as they are feathered out.

    Call Modesto Feed on n. mchenry; he might have an idea and he may even have a rooster for sale. He has 17 week old hybrid RR, just about ready to lay for 7.95, and last time I was in he may have had some bantys. My wife was raised in modesto and had chickens; don't know if she had any roos...
