    How To Raise A Rooster

    No I was referring to a human thief! Cops said no proof! I do have them so they can see each other. The rooster, I am calling him Stanley, was eying them last night but showed no aggression. He just looked curious

Buff Orpington or RIR or something of similar color with high production rates in the genes. I was looking forward to babies after the...

    How To Raise A Rooster

    After almost a year I have ended up with 3 roosters. One of them was by choice. I do NOT have any problems with them. As most of you have read, I have had a few issues but they were resolved easily enough. I do NOT pick up my roosters unless I have to. I do NOT pet them-usually hehe. They are...

    Neighbor hates my chickens- will she do them harm?

    I am so glad you stood up to her. Yes cancer sucks, but that doesn't mean she gets her way because of it. She is the kind of neighbor in sitcoms. Maybe you should write to a network and have your own reality t.v series. Then all the world can witness her antics and she will be forced to watch...

    *Buff Orpington Thread!*

    My flock will run to greet me and then follow me. Sometimes some will get accidently stepped on because even though I am being careful, they still manage to get in front of me and under my feet. Usually they will hang out with me for a little while and then go back to their chicken lives. My...

    Jim could you send that info to me via private message? That sounds like something I have been looking for-ie drought tolerant, grows anywhere, continuously produces!

    Growing fodder for chickens

    It is going to take me a long time to read this whole thread but I am glad I found it!!! Living in the desert does not provide the ideal free ranging experience for my chickens. This will make my chickens super happy! I am hoping it will also cut down on feed costs because my chickens are...

    Neighbor hates my chickens- will she do them harm?

    I think the fence on the property line is a good thing-as long as it is on their side. I would make sure that it is!!!!! Pay for your own surveyor to oversee it. The fence will keep her off your property!!! If she is on your side call the law for trespass!!!!

    Neighbor Complaining

    My advice take it or leave it: I think that he is using his position as your employer to his advantage. He is testing the boundaries of the relationship. You should NOT allow him to do this. Changing the color to please him is not a bad thing. But since you agreed to do it he is now thinking he...

    How To Sex A Chicken - Wisdom From An Old Timer

    Ok first off-that is NOT a buff Orpington. How do I know? Because my main breed is buff Orpingtons and that is not one. the leg coloring is yellow for one. Orpingtons don't have yellow legs. Also the coloring is off-too much red. Secondly, that does appear to be a male. The comb is large and...
