    Unincorporated King County -- Washington State

    that counts if you have more than 1 acre of land. I only have about 1/4 acre so it doesn't apply in this case. The way it was interpreted is that I could have 3 small animals and they coudl be chickens. However, the area was set to incorporate and the city allows up to 6 chickens in addition...

    Sumatra Thread!

    I have a blue sumatra that is supposedly about 3 years old, but has no spurs at all. He's got some little spur buds but nothing like a real spur. Is he just a bad specimin or is he maybe a lot younger than I was told? Any ideas? I can try to get some pictures later, I'm not at home now.

    I have large fowl, but not perfect stock. I guess you mostly have bantams though so I'll probably have to find bigger birds elsewhere. I don't need them to get bigger, but I don't really want to have bantams at this point. Maybe when I get out of the city and don't have a stupid limit on the...

    IDK, I'd try craigslist and the auction sites here, etc. I wish I was closer or planning a road trip to cali, I'd love to breed him. I saw a black sumatra for $50 (mature good stock) and I recently sold 2 juvenile boys for $25 each and probably could have gotten more but I had to thin my flock...

    if it was a boy, I bet he'll be worth a lot of money. He's gonna make a good stud.

    looking kinda roo-ish with that scraggly tail. Hard for me to tell though, for some reason, sumatra's are the hardest birds for me to sex.

    Quote: This is why it's a good idea to remove a broody hen from the coop and put her in a brooder where it's dark & quiet and she can get food & water and none of the other chickens can bother her. The only downside is that you probably will have to scoop her poop, though it will be big, it...

    When to take them out?

    They can stay in for up to 4 days. If/when you take them out is dependent on you and your incubator mostly. Some people say to take the incubator in the bathroom and run the shower for a few minutes to get it all hot and steamy and take them out there. If you have a good incubator and can...

    Cockerels -- Local Pickup Only

    I have too many cockerels. I need to rehome them. I'm asking a modest $5 re-homing fee to help ensure that they go to good homes. I'm happy with it if you want to finish raising them and have them for dinner. I'm not fine with it if you plan to fight them or do anything else inhumane or cruel...
