    We have a dog kennel we closed in with blue and black tarps with a top, filled inside with hay, and put a heat lamp over the roost...would that work there as well? South...Madison Co

    Either Abilene or close to it, we have a friend that is looking for places for us there until we can come down to see them, too. :)

    Buying: Several Hens to add to Flock - TN

    I have two hens right now, and want to get some more since I have roosters. I have a large coop and run, and they are let out to free range when I am home on nine acres. I'm willing to drive out to get them, and pay what you feel is reasobable either per hen or as a group. They will be pets...

    Anyone have advice? Monster-In-Law is my grandma...

    We found a nice little place yesterday that allows animals! I was so happy DH said he'd go back Friday morning to put a deposit on it, and my neighbor said she would help us if we needed a trailer for furniture or a place to put anything. :) I know nothing is final yet, but I've been relieved...

    Anyone have advice? Monster-In-Law is my grandma...

    My husband and I are ready to pick up our daughter and leave. We're at my grandma's house because I've never moved out and the rent is free. Awesome, right? We get free roofing, free food, and immediate babysitting available. It's why I have tried to stay here this past year. But she is driving...

    Comment by 'MamaDoodle' in article 'Dealing With Roosters Roo Behavior'

    Thank you! I am so glad to see a post about dealing with an aggressive rooster. I have 3, two getting along and one who attacks us and the dogs. The others outrun my hens to escape everything, thus, they are not the ones in the backyard with my hens. I got roosters for flock protection, yet...

    Predator possum dispatched before breaking into brooder *graphic photo*

    You must have some serious arm strength! At least it was an instant kill and you saved your little ones.

    Vent: Stress at a High

    Today has been, and still is, a running one. My mom was harassing my husband, had to stop that; at work, saw a body removal; at home now, my two black roosters took off into the woods. So they'll either be eaten or come back and meet my dogs because I work late (on break). I'm about to go to a...

    Vent: Stress at a High

    I am actually trying the one thing at a time right now, which is actually hard to do when there's more than one thing going on at a time. I'd like to focus on dealing with that I just sold a horse I'm very fond of. I'm worried about so much that I probably shouldn't be... but instead, my husband...

    Vent: Stress at a High

    He is active...9 years is a long time, and it doesn't seem like training will fly by, but you certainly know better than I do, so I'll keep my head up. :hugs I'm not sure when the insurance kicks in...DH says it does when he goes to training, but I would think he'd have to finish it before...

    Vent: Stress at a High

    I actually just walked in the door from selling one of my horses. I don't barrel race but he's young and trained for it, so a lady who does race accepted that he has some issues and trusts me when I say he really is a good horse and agreed to come get him next weekend. I'm both relieved and...

    Vent: Stress at a High

    I'd like to curl up in bed and cry, but I'm about to leave for another shift, can't look awful-er when meeting a new client. I work in home health care, and with money being tight, I've taken on two to three shifts a day until further notice. Problem is, I still can't afford what I need. Like...

    Great Depression of 2016

    And if this happens, what will families like mine do? We will be on a military base, no farming of any kind. I may have it right now, but next year, when we're stationed, nope. I imagine I could put away things in a pantry, but then I'll have to move it and somehow explain it to inspectors.
