    Purina's New Packaging?

    Not sure if this has been brought up, it's been a few weeks since I had to buy feed. What's with the new bag material? I always recycled the paper grain bags of Layena. Not sure if these new bags are recyclable or not, there's no symbol on them. Anyone have any info on this?

    Breaking my broody BO.

    Wish me luck. One of my Buff Orp's has gone broody on me. I'm really not set up to do the hatching thing, no rooster or fertile eggs. I've been moving her off the nest for a few days to no avail. Luckily I had grabbed a wire rabbit hutch recently at a "take it or leave it area" at the local...

    Is she a Welsummer?

    I have always thought this hen was a Welsummer but looking at other pictures makes me think otherwise. A mix perhaps? Or just hatchery stock? She was a mistake in my order in May of 09 from the feed store but a nice mistake. I don't get very dark eggs from her either. She is however a very nice...

    My first multi egg day and an oyster shell question.

    One or two of my hens started laying last week, I got 5 eggs for 7 days. Today I got my first 2 egg day. I have 15 hens. The eggs are very durable, nice hard shells. Should I have oyster shell on hand for my girls? Bill

    Laying on roost, will that change?

    Okay, here's the scoop. I have 15 twenty week old hens. I got my first egg on Monday this week (firts egg thread for photo) so I'm excited as can be that some one started laying. I don't know who yet. Between Monday and today I've gotten 3 eggs. The only problem is they're being laid on my...

    The highest spot in the run is the favorite spot to hang out and rest or groom for a little while.

    Murphys' Law in the heat lamp dept.

    Well, my chicks which are around 5 weeks old let me know the other day that it was time to remove the heat lamp. They were brooded in the coop and are thriving. I had the lamp raised up to almost 4 feet in my 8x8 coop and the other morning not one chick was even close to the heat zone. Last...

    What breed?

    I picked up my chicks about three weeks ago, ordered through a local feed store. I chose five different breeds, EE's were one of my choices. All of the breeds were seperated in their respective brooders at the feed store. In the process of rounding up my order, this chick was in with the EE's...

    Chicks getting a little

    My chicks

    Well, after a little thought yesterday I decided it was time to take my 15 chicks out of the brooder and give them full range of the coop. They're 2-2.5 weeks now. My brooder was in the coop to begin with to concentrate the heat etc...So today was the day and they loved the extra space. They...
