    Coop Build 2

    We started with a 4x8 table for the base. Then built the wall frames. We leveled out the base in the yard and attached the walls. Thanks to somebody on BYC we used these brackets to hold the rafters for the roof. Added the clean out door, hinges, locks and painted the inside. Built the nest...

    breed?

    Its definitely way cool. I had NO idea a green egg was even a possibility, so I was super excited.

    breed?

    That must be it then. The 2 do have pea combs. Not quite sure about the muff though, don't really notice one, especially compared to the non-muffed one, but there could be a hint of one. They're all mutts I'm sure, I just never thought there was a chance for green though. I'm thrilled.

    breed?

    Do they really? I never even noticed. Ha. I'll have to check them out closer tomorrow. Thanks. And I'm 99% certain the hens are mixed, one is the red roosters mother.

    breed?

    Well somebody laid a green egg. Just trying to figure out who. The one on the top right and the grey are roosters.

    Does egg color change with what you feed them?

    Oh and before I get too excited, this is a green egg right?

    breed?

    Sorry this isn't the best picture, but they all look basically the same. Do you know what they are? And any chance one of them is an EE?

    Does egg color change with what you feed them?

    This is the best I have for right now. But you can see they all look like normal red type. But I'm not an expert so maybe you will see something I don't see. You can see the 3 hens and the 2 roosters

    Hi everybody. I haven't been on here in a bit since we've been busy with school and kids and stuff. But just wanted to update on my beauty John Jr (she's a girl). We finally integrated the borrowed hens and the roosters and so far everybody is still alive. We've been watching them closely...

    When do roosters get mean?

    Now why couldn't I find that when I searched? I am definitely not afraid of them, but maybe I should be. It sounds like they can get pretty mean. The most they have done is peck at me, but I think they thought I was feeding them or I was food, it definitely didn't seem in a mean fashion. They...

    Does egg color change with what you feed them?

    Awesome. Thats about what our yolk looked like. My husband was afraid to eat it, so I snatched it right up. I don't know how you can compare to the store. Ok, I guess I'll try to watch for right now and see what happens. I thought they weren't even supposed to lay in the winter, so it might be...

    When do roosters get mean?

    Thanks. So it sounds like it could be any day now. I'm also worried about the 2 fighting with each other. They're hatch mates, so I hope that helps. Only one of them crows, even though they both can, so maybe only the one will take over?

    Does egg color change with what you feed them?

    The yolks are almost orange, super dark. Is that good or bad? And is there anyway to tell who is laying the green?

    Does egg color change with what you feed them?

    Thank you. Thats what I thought, but before I correct somebody else I wanted to check.

    When do roosters get mean?

    At what age do roosters start getting mean? Will they all get mean or does it just depend on the individual? We have 2 roosters that are 6 months old. For the longest time it was just the 2 of them and they are friendly enough. When we added the hens everyone said they would get mean. Now the...

    245 am crowing....

    Ours crows at 10:45 pm and at 3:30 am. Probably more than that too, but we don't hear him too much in the house.

    Does egg color change with what you feed them?

    I'm fairly certain I know the answer, but I thought I would check anyway. We have what I thought/believe are RIR or generic production reds. Anyway, one is laying green eggs. Somebody said the eggs can change colors based on what you feed them.

    Time to combine

    See thats what I'm worried about, they'd be going into a fenced in run, so they couldn't really get away too much. Unless I let them all loose in the yard and just have to worry about catching them later. I also have some wire fences that I put them into in different parts of the yard, so maybe...
