    How many eggs does your SFH lay..?

    I really like the idea of having a flock of friendly birds, and Swedish Flower Hens seem perfect for that; but, it's hard to find an official amount of eggs I should expect... Which is why I'm on this site. Because so many people here know so much more about chickens than I do. Thank you...

    Hello! I have 1 week old baby chicks and I was just looking for some “bonding” advice.

    Need an emotional support chicken for my chicken.

    Yes, that's right. That is a silly title but it's essentially what I'm looking for right now. I have three chickens right now. Two are independent sex-links (Java and Franny) and one is a cuddly Easter Egger (Easter). Sadly, Easter's temperament is the problem we're having at the moment. We...

    Hi all! I love my ducks, but they are super jumpy. They're Welsh Harlequin, don't know if that matters. I keep seeing cuddly duck photos on Instagram but my ducks HATE to be picked up and always run from me. They will eat out of my hand and sometimes sit nearby as long as I'm very still. I...
