    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...

    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...

    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...

    Introducing Pullets (one runt!) to Good Flock, Aggressive Roo?

    -Pullets: I bought a pair of pullets almost two weeks ago to slowly add to my flock. They are about eight weeks old now. A Barred Rock named Harley Quinn and a Speckled Sussex named Crooked. Harley is tough and friendly, having already pecked my aggressive rooster through the cage. She sits on...

    Mystery Horse Injuries/Illness :( UPDATED: R.I.P.

    UPDATE: Trick passed away today. He began to bleed out of the mouth, refuse food, and we just could not get him up for the world. He passed away peacefully, just a few deep breaths and stillness. He'll be buried tomorrow under the tree he often grazed beneath. Thank you all for your kind and...

    MamaDoodle's Critters

    Forgive me if this is not the place to post this, but I did not think that animals only belonged in the Social forum, under Family Life - Pictures, Updates, & Stories... If this is not the place, I will be ready to remove or move this. As stated at the end of this thread, feel free to ask me...

    At Work When They Hatch?

    My eggs are due to hatch the 14-16 this month, and I am worried I will be at work when they do! :th I have 11, ten eggs but one double, and all seem to be doing well so far... I only work four hours a day on week days, 10A-2P, so maybe I am too worked up. The incubator is beside my bed and I...

    Do I Drop My Case at Work? Argh! Vent Post.

    I am a CNA and work for a company that does in home care, and while I have not been around the business for years as several of my co-workers have, I have seen many different clients both at my current job and beforehand, so I am surprised that this is my first time working with someone who...

    The Dog and the Rooster (as of this evening...)

    Chicken round up tonight was quite the amusing event! The rooster (still needs a name!)... And this gal, "Drizzle"... I gave the chickens a bowl full of canned corn to call them in from the yard when the sun started to set and all came except for my rooster. Well, he came over, but...

    Australorp? Black Cochin? Something else??

    My two roosters are confusing! They are about the size of my Orpington and RIR, black with a greenish tint on the tails, gold flecks on their necks, buttercup combs, and feathered legs. But every time I look up a breed who has similarities, they don't match up perfectly, especially due to their...

    MamaDoodle's BYC's

    I had been considering getting chickens for a couple of years, but never had the courage to bring home even more animals. I did not want chickens who were wild, nor did I want them for meat. I simply wanted tame, egg laying, entertaining friends to have running around my backyard for me to watch...

    Late Introduction!

    Whoops, it seems I skipped right over this thread! Anywho, pleased to meet you all! I'm Caitlin (aka MamaDoodle) and I have been a lurker on BYC for this past year. It wasn't until my second flock grew up that I joined, and I wish I had been more active on here rather than just winging it...

    Hen With Broken Wing - What To Do?

    Updated: R.I.P. Doodle. I realized the break was a joint, and without the money to amputate her wing and avoid secondary infection until next weekend, I had the vet put her down. I simply don't have the heart to break the neck of an animal I have raised and coddled, and my husband is burying...
