    Peacocks Anyone?

    So, my aunt is rasing Peafowls (peacocks), well I decided I'd like to try. I've never really eaten one, but the eggs are great! So I have to ask, anyone else have peafowls that they sell or raise? I thought about going into that business now.

    Drives of Chickens

    In all living beings there are certain motivators or drives and I want to share with you what these are and how they affect you and your chickens. I have sorted them into some different groups based on what they affect. I will note that different breeds have been bred to have different levels of...

    "I'm not a boy, mom!"

    Long story short: I rescued a baby pigeon that was found on the floor of my barn a few months ago now. Decided to keep the pigeon, as it wouldn't have survival instincts being raised by a human. He does great and has adapted well to indoor life (though I do take him outside with me a lot!)...

    Hello!

    I'm Cari. I am a photographer and the mother of Daisy (black lab), Mr. Kitty, Buddy the parakeet (he showed up on our fence one day), and six laying hens: Dolly, Coconut, Ginger, Cinnamon, Sugar and Pam (from the Office not the spray!) My chick-chicks say "hello"! Have a great day! :thumbsup

    What IS THIS?!

    Hey everyone. So, the strangest thing just happened. We were down the allotments seeing to our hens and newly hatched chicks when a strange bird crashed into the fence?? At first we thought it was a chicken, but it doesn’t appear to have a comb - so we honestly have no clue what it is. It flew...

    Releasing rescued pigeon?

    A few weeks ago, I went into our barn to get some straw for my geese. I noticed something moving on the floor of the barn - a very young pigeon. Way too young to be out of its nest. As we have stray cats in the area, I didn't want to leave it there to die. The nests were all very high up in the...

    Anyone have Dove Eggs for sale?

    Hi! So I was looking around for some dove eggs to incubate, however I couldn’t find any. (I understand some don’t ship it due to how fragile the eggs are) Does anyone have any Dove Eggs they can send over? We are hoping for a basically completely white ringneck dove, or I guess any white dove...

    Feeding cheese

    What age can I start feeding my baby chicks cheese? My older hens go absolute crazy over it and that's the main food I trained them with when they were young. When I say feed them cheese, I'm talking about only 1 shreded piece at a time broken into 10s per bird. That together is only about 1...

    Getting a few ducks, breed suggestions?

    I’m gonna be getting a few ducks this coming April thought i’m not sure what breed to get? They’d be living with my chickens for the most part. I have a pretty big backyard too and my chickens get out everyday to forage. Only slight problem is i have one neighbor on my left that’s pretty close...

    Plymouth Rock/Cream Legbar Mix?

    Looking at some chicken breeds and saw one called a Cream Legbar. I then remembered Cin has a Plymouth Rock hen that looks like she's constantly angry because her head feathers are always up. Cream Legbar has the same thing going on. Could she be a mix of the two, or is she just an angry birb?

    Legacy Cut Short

    Wasn't sure where to post this, so if it gets moved or something, that's fine. So there was a post I made about my friend, Nubby, who sadly passed away last month from some illness or something me and...we'll call her Cin...didn't detect. The only clue something was wrong was a lump on the...

    Scared Chicken

    Hello everybody! We have a Dominique chicken, who is at the bottom of our pecking order of 9 guineas, 7 chickens and a rooster. We got her from a family with three times as many birds, and frankly she wasn't given any special care or attention and was in bad shape when we got her. Her health...

    Little chicken cannot open eyes and is off balance

    Our little chicken has never had great balance, but I thought I should add it. He cannot open his eyes, aside from a little part. He drinks when I put water up to his beak, he tries to eat, but he can't quite see it. Preening like he's comfortable, a little fluffed out (less fluffed now that I...
