    Hello!

    I'm a first-time chicken-keeper here in central Ohio. Right now we have 13 chickens in our flock (it's sort of a joint venture between my mom and I), but we're in town and I would like to find new homes for some of them so they all have a little more space. Three Easter Eggers, a Silver-laced...

    Introductions

    Hello, I'm fairly new to the backyard chicken flock club. Before making any purchases I was sure to do quite a bit of research, but research isn't the same as experience. I'm hoping I'll be able to find out more information from people with first-hand experiences! At the moment there's three...

    Roosters & baby chicks

    Hi! So about 8 weeks ago our hen hatched 12 chicks! So this was a little unexpected, and we hadn’t done any research about our rooster and the chicks, so we put our rooster in a second cage right next to our hen and her chicks. Since then we have built one big coop hoping all of them could stay...

    Hi fellow chicken people! I have a somewhat emergency situation that I was hoping to get some advice on. A local chicken mom is being forced to rehome her 5 bantams approx 5 months old each (she believes that two are not yet laying). Her town does not permit Chickens, and clearly there is a...

    Chicken farmer's kid....................

    I'll be 80 in August and nearly 5 years ago I bought a one acre lot with a small home in Windsor, ME. Since we have a gazillion ticks in the NE part of the U.S. I bought 4 keets last spring (2017). They really did a good job at tick patrol. All 4 are females, 1 tries to hatch eggs so I've given...

    Thankful to be here!

    Hello new chicken buddies! This year we are starting the adventure, finally, after years of wanting to and never having the guts to just do it. My friends offered to raise the baby chicks until it’s time to go to the coop, knowing that raising babies was the thought holding us back the most. We...
