    I'll share my yard with you~~picture heavy.

    My coop/run. Part of the front walkway. I just love sunflowers! The next few are of a 70' bed I dug out and planted this Spring. Please excuse the landscape fabric peeking through. I wasn't finished mulching when I took these. This is the end of that 70' bed. There are a few...

    Under her beak is always wet and has odor

    Ok, so this may be a goofy question, but here goes anyhow. One of my hens under her beak is wet. I thought a few days ago she was just a sloppy drinker (I know a few of those ). Anyhow I checked her again and there's a slight odor under her beak. So....ok, I picked up another hen to do the...

    The family that was dealing with the flood waters at their home. I thought it was titled "Here comes the water" or "The water is coming" or something like that.

    My run stinks

    We've finally had some rain here and it blew sideways. Their feeder got wet and I cleaned it out and put in fresh feed. But they were really messy eaters and there was chicken feed on the ground. I now have flies. It smells sour out there. I took a shovel and turned the soil. Will that do the...

    Starter crumbles vs. pellets question

    My girls are about 4 months old now and I'm having a blast with them! It sounds like many here keep them on starter until they lay which is what I'm planning on doing. Or should I switch to grower now? I know they're not ready for layer yet. I only have about a weeks worth of the crumbles left...

    Thought I'd introduce myself

    Hi everyone! I joined BYC a few months ago and never made it into this area until a few days ago and saw the "Here comes the flood" thread. So incredibly sad. I started off in the forums with the baby chicks, then coop building, feeding, etc. Now I'm ready to settle down and maybe make some new...

    Here's my coop/run and pictures of my girls!

    I borrowed a friends hubby to help me with this. It was fun to build and there's still some work to be done to finish it off like some sort of roof. And I still need to tack the wire from the inside to the 2X4's. Anyhow, here it is. I hope I did this right!!! This is Thelma. Sorry it's...

    letting chicks play in the yard question

    I'd love to let them play (supervised of course!) in the back yard for a little bit, but am concerned because I sprayed Weed B Gone 2 weeks ago. Should I wait until after the first mowing to make sure there's no residue? The package says it's dog safe after it dries, but I know the chicks will...

    Breeds of chickens

    Ok, since coming to BYC, I'm curious. Just how many breeds of chickens ARE there? My knowledge is very limited on chickens and I'm afraid I've forgotten more than I knew, lol. But I read the threads and there seem to be so many different breeds. No wonder it's addictive!

    starter feed question

    I got Thelma and Louise last Saturday and they're doing great! I asked at the feed store how long they should be on the starter feed and was told they'd be on that about 5 months until they are about ready to start laying. Then today I read in a magazine someone loaned me that they should be on...

    I got my babies today!

    The feed store got their pullet delivery yesterday. Today after work I went (around 3:00) and they were almost sold out! There were no more barred rock nor rhode island reds . But the Araucanna's were so cute I got 2. I wanted one of each, but didn't want to just get one little girl, she needs...
