    My RIR rooster is becoming mean!

    Well I knew when my lil rir rooster was so sweet when he was young would not last long. He has run into the back of my legs twice now in the last few days. He had attacked my Dad one time a couple of months ago but I figured it was because Hercules was not use to seeing my dad in the chicken...

    Quote: a bigger gun will kill a possom just as quick as the 22 http://www.bertc.com/subfive/recipes/possum.htm I don't think it's a question of the effectiveness of the weapon - she lives right outside of NYC! I don't think she's allowed to shoot weapons of that calibur in her backyard...

    I am so unsure why people think drowning is better than shooting. I mean have you ever thought about what that animal goes through before it finally dies! I almost drowned as a child and that is not the way I would want to go I would much rather be killed quickly. I am a hunter and believe a...

    So... I never knew Roosters were so smart.

    My RIR rooster, Hecules will not eat treats either until his girls have gotten theirs and when one hens strays too far from the rest he goes and gets her so all his hens are together. He also attacks my dogs when he sees them so I guess he thinks they will harm his women.

    Trading your eggs!

    I have yet to sell any of my extra eggs but yesterday my father traded a dozen and half eggs for some fresh squash and vidalia onions that he shared with us. I was wondering if anyone else trades their extra eggs for other stuff?

    PLEASE tell me all you know about Plymouth rocks and Wyandottes

    I have a flock of nine with only one SLW but she is the coolest little chicken I have. She lays a medium size cream colored egg almost everyday. She is a mellow hen and gets along well with the RIRs and EES that she has been raised with.

    Spider plant killer!!

    Thank you! It seems that I am doing everything right then. Maybe the browning is from the plant being outside when I purchased it from the store. I have it inside now.

    boiled eggs

    This just lets you know those eggs we were buying from the stores are OLD! yuck. I try to but a dozen aside in the fridge and wait a week or two before boiling them. I have also discovered that my two EEs' eggs peel way easier than my rirs' eggs.

    What should I put down in the run?

    My run is just dirt and leaves that I rake up and haul in there for the flock to scratch through. About every two months I rake up everything in the run and haul it to the compost. And since my yard is full of many different types of trees I always have leaves to put back in the run.

    Pair of male/Female Silkies who don't act like chickens

    That is so sad! The poor babies don't know what it is like to be normal chickens just breaks my heart. People can be so thoughtless. I think with some extra attention you can get these babies where they need to be. Do you have other chickens that they can watch and learn from? Good luck
