A lot of our flock were given to us and wandering why this duck likes my husband's boots? Just inquiring on what is good for growing around their pen. Wanting...

    Can you hatch eggs using the heat from a refrigerator?

    Tldr; yes I had recently acquired a pair of coturni quail and was super excited about hatching out their eggs. I was waiting for the incubator to come in the mail but due to the rona everything was delayed so my dad suggested that the heat from the fridge should suffice so we tried it. After...

    My 3 week old chick is going crazy. Help!

    I got 3 barred rock chicks a little under 3 weeks ago. Their behavior has been normal until about an hour ago. We took them out of the brooder temporarily for about 20 minutes to change their bedding, and put them in a smaller box. They started aggressively trying to fly out after about 10...

    Legal Help (?)

    I need some advice on what we can do. I'll give you the entire story from the beginning. -My family moves into a nice fixer-upper. We build a 14 x 14 chicken coop and get six bantams and 6 guineafowl. 4 of them are roosters! - We get a few more because we don't want the rooster problem to build...

    Rooster acting crazy

    i have a rooster that is a little over a year old and lately he has started acting crazy. He is the only chicken doing this. He will stand still for a second and then start running like something is chasing him. He also shakes his head like there’s something on his wattles. His wattles have...

    Crazy Chicken (Blood Warning)

    Hi guys, we have had five chickens in a spacious coop for going on two years now. The chickens have always gotten on fine, and are extremely passive compared to chickens I've seen in the past. This morning my dad got up to clean the cage and found four of the five chickens had blood pouring from...

    I'm surprised. My cat actually defended my chick!!!!

    So we have 1, 7-week old chick and 4, 1- week old chicks. The cat is kept away from the 1 week olds, but has been around my 7 week old (under watchful eye) since she was 2 weeks old. Usually she bats at her. Lately I have noticed them chase each other around. But lately (with the warm weather)...

    Poop Door ...literally.

    So, in looking around I see lots of creative ideas. But, I'm wondering if anyone has a poop door, as in literal poop? Hubby always tells me "you design it and I'll build it" but he is great at improvising, too. I designed my coop to have a storage area. Originally, the "human" door accessed the...

    My Project Breed Plan

    I think I'll call them Blue Spot Chickens. I'm intending for them to be extended black silver based with charcoal and other melanizers. I also want to have both mottling and leaky heterozygous dominant white breeding true (aka all 3 colours look good even in a mixed flock) along side the solid...
