Just wanted to give an update. I thought for sure my chickens were gone for good. But a week and two days after they went missing I went down to...
I've looked everywhere I can think of. The attack didn't look too bad, but I didn't get too good a look because she ran off before I could. I'm...
Yesterday my dogs attacked one of my hens. I got her away and brought her to the coop only for her to run away. Now she and another hen are...
I would check craigslist to see how much hens are going for in your area. But it really depends on the kind of chicken, age, etc.
I got my first welsummers last night. They are two days old and so cute. I'm so glad to have added these wonderful birds to my flock!
Yes! She/he has three new welsummers for companionship. :-) They seem to be getting along great!

They're so cute! Mine are about 6-8 weeks old now. They're adorable and growing quickly! I can't wait until they are older.
I have 5 one year old chickens. I recently obtained two more one year old chickens to add to my flock. What is the best way to go about combining...
How old are they? Do you have any pics? My jubilees are growing quite a bit.
No, the others haven't been using that nest box...at least that I'm aware of. I'm not in the coop 24/7, so I can't be sure.
Thanks for the advice!
Craigslist is a great way to get rid of unwanted roosters. There's also a forum on here for buying, selling, trading, etc.
