    Moving with our pets from CA to AK how's?don'ts?and do's?

    I would use dog kennels— a couple hens to a large kennel, roosters separated. You can keep a food and water bowl in the kennel, and add bedding for easy cleaning. Just pull over every few hours to refill food & water, and try to keep it a straight shot from where you’re starting to where you’re...

    There is something wrong with my hen.

    Post pictures of top and bottom of feet afterwards, especially the bad foot. She could have bumblefoot or something underneath the crud. And she’ll probably enjoy the pedicure, lol.

    There is something wrong with my hen.

    Could be bruised, not sure what you can do about that other than let her rest it her feet look like they could use a wash... soak in espon salts water and give her poor toes a scrub, it could reveal more that we’re not seeing.

    How do you charge for meat birds?

    It also might add nutritional benefits, but that seems to be a point of conflict

    How do you charge for meat birds?

    from my understanding, fermented feed is just wetted down feed so it doesn’t spill and waste

    What is going on here??

    it might be an egg membrane, have you tried giving it a gentle pull? If a soft shelled egg broke inside of her, you’ll want to know and start treating her for egg yolk Peritonitis

    Grit size

    Do you free range your birds? They'll likely go out of their way to find themselves some grit while Scratching around in dirt and rocks

    How do you charge for meat birds?

    my chickens are pets, and the eggs are an added bonus. My landlord gave us a few chicks in the dead of winter, so I had to buy both chicken feed and chick starter. Right after I quit my job. So I’m really thankful that they're grown now and I’m back to my twenty buck feeding schedule I’ve...

    20% of Flock is Doing Weird Molting...To Give Molt Muffins or Not?

    I would give them the molt muffins, because I love watching them eat treats anyways :pop If you’re worried, is there any way you could separate the molting birds and give them molt muffins, and give the rest of the flock like... regular muffins? I bet they’d love that.

    How do you charge for meat birds?

    So with my rough estimate of $20 every 2 weeks, and pretending we still have 11 birds, it would cost $10 x 10 wk. / 11 birds = roughly $9/bird. That seems far more reasonable than $47/bird, haha. I suppose you would want to raise many more at once to make a higher profit, but that would cost a...

    Quick survey, nature or nurture?

    Did it! I think you might want to add a question about being raised alongside other fowl, as I believe that has had a large affect on my chickens behaviors.

    How do you charge for meat birds?

    How many birds do you have, and about how much have you spent on feed to raise them? Feed $$$ divided by # of hens equals how much each individual hen has eaten, in dollars. Then, consider how much you need for upkeep. for example, I have 11 chickens and go through $20 of feed every 2 weeks...
