    Ended Official BYC Contest: "Chickens 'n Treats" Photo Contest

    We decorated a tree with orange slices and cranberries and bird seed ornaments we made for wild birds, but no birds touched it. This looks really cool and I'm sure your birds really enjoyed it. I have never heard of a cake mix for chickens before. That's awesome. Maybe I'll have to make a cake...

When we went to get a tree this year, we were told that with the shortage on trees, there were very few left, which was an accurate...

    This pumpkin must not have been as tasty, but one of the chicken seemed to like it.

    Winterizing with hay bales and or dog house

Someone recommended building a box or dog house type of thing to put inside so the chickens can roost in...

    Waterfowl feed suggestions

    Well I want to stick with a soy free food and I'm not too impressed with Purina's food because they aren't transparent with the ingredients in the food. I'm sure it works fine but I need to do what's best for me.

    Waterfowl feed suggestions

    Lol I do not want to get complicated like this which is why I want one food to start feeding them when they are mature and to keep feeding them at least until they are too old to lay eggs any longer. I think a 17% protein ration will be good for them year long even if they quit laying in the...

    This is the food I was planning on switching them to. they say its for laying/non laying ducks but the calcium content is high. I should add my ducks are all female, in case that changes things. But this company told me you can start feeding this to ducks at 3 weeks old. Wouldn't the calcium...
