    Do they know?

    I have been observing my new chicks (7 days old) and it seems to me like they are segregating them selves by color as well as breed. Plus there seems to be one in particular that is "eyeballing" the top of the brooder as if to be figuring a way out. It is also the same one that comes running...

    Aggressive Rooster

    I have a rooster that I have raised by hand since the time he popped out of the egg. He just discovered he was a "rooster" about two months ago and has terrorized the hens to the point that they hide under the roost and haven't come out of the coop in over a month and he's tried to peck me a few...

    Really weird rabbit (pics)

    I have a typical white rabbit, "Dirty" Dianna, that lives at the school were I work. She kept escaping from her cage this past summer and I finally through up my hands and let her run free.

    Is my chicken molting or is there something wrong with her? Her legs are not normally this scaly looking. Usually she has a nice pink comb and she's a beautiful chestnut color. She's eating, drinking and acting like herself.

    What do they really need?

    So I am getting really tired of the way the "store bought food" makes my chickens poop and frankly them smell. During the summer I've noticed a huge difference and I'm sure it's because they are free rangeing all day and getting what nature intended. However, if you can avoid

    Can you make a hen STOP laying?

    My hen has a fractured femur and it looks like she's very uncomfortable each time she lays an egg. I'm trying to make her as comfortable as possible while she heals and was wondering if there is anything I can do to get her to stop laying. I'm sure that it is painful considering where the break...
