    Hello, my name is K Mole

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? When I was a kid we had chickens as pets and for eggs. We had one big flock and added to it as we came by chickens. We had many different breeds and made our own incubator and hatched our own chicks. At one point I'm pretty sure we...

    Heya

    I guess I'll start off by saying hi, my preferred name is roxas. And now I'll answer those questions. Here goes: 1: I am not new to chickens. I have raised 2 flocks with my family, and it has always been me doing the begging for more. The first flock, consisted of a varying mix, like white...

    My Only Chicken is a Sultan

    My DIL recently surprised me with a chicken, she knows that I like chickens! This gifting was on 7-30-20! So, I have ONE chicken, a Sultan, and I don’t know much about her as there is a certain vagueness about where she came from. I will want more chickens, but need to get set up for more...

    Hi there

    I am a new member. I have been enjoying the site and decided to join. A bit about me. I used to live on 150 acre farm and had pretty much every farm animal there is. Including chickens of course! The biggest difference is that when you have so many animals to care for you don’t really get a...

    Introducing a New Muscovy Hen

    Currently I have one Muscovy drake and one Muscovy hen. It has been this way for the last 2 years. However, I would like to add another adult hen to the flock because my current hen’s feathers have seen better days because my drake is always standing on her. I am concerned that my current ducks...
