    R.I.P Perri, always remembered, never forgotten.

    It was around 6:15 am in the morning that I heard the commotion. I heard panicked squawks from the chickens outside my window. I thought the flock of 9 was just being annoyed by plovers...but when I looked out my window...a fox was chasing them around. I gasped and ran to the laundry door in my...

    Whisky Willows Chicks

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? My family has had chickens for at least 7 years. Can’t remember exactly when we got our first flock. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? We have 18 chickens, just acquired a new one today. (3) What breeds do you have? Oh...

    Because I loved her

    A few months ago we got some baby chicks from tractor supply. The first few weeks went by fine and nothing really happened. Then they got to the age where they could be out in the coop. I will forever regret that decision. We put them out and they seemed to like it. They had fun in their new...

    Ferret lovers?

    I don't have a ferret yet, but I am in love with the idea of getting a male ferret. I have calculated the costs, and come to the conclusion that here in Australia, it would cost me $330 dollars [on average] to get the ferret, his cage, castrate him etc...And $100 dollars per year [on average] to...

    Hello, I'm looking to re-home the two healthy adult male button quails that I have raised in the Bay Area (California). Recently, one of my females have passed away, leaving one of my males lonely. I have to go to college next year and I need help to give these guys a new home! They have been...

    noisy female ducks...ideas?

    Hello, I have five male and two female call ducks and they are my babies!! However, my two females, mainly the youngest one (6mnths old) are 'calling' nearly all of the time, every 20/30 mins or so. At first I thought it was hilarious and cute (and I still do) but now I'm worried neighbours...

    Thought it would be nice to learn more about each other. 3 questions: Where are you from? How big is your current flock? What made you fall in love with the idea of having your own chickens? I will go first. My name is Krystal. I'm from Queensland, Australia. I currently have 8 Australorp...

    12 week old terrified still

    Hi guys, it's been a few weeks since I brought home Edison and Mayo. They get along with the chickens no problem and now they seem to know who I am when I come into the enclosed run. Problem is, they still won't greet me, come to feed on treats near me and especially be held. They scream and...

    The old hen is in LOVE!

    I had a large flock of hens and they were killed by a bear last October, all but two hens. The oldest, Myrtle Mae (a 3 year old RIR), has been the top of the pecking order with my new flock and always rather peckish and nasty to everyone else. Even the roosters run from her! Imagine my shock...

    Ex-Fighter: Caspian's Crew

    I adopted three roosters from roostersanctuary.org a little over a year ago one passed but the other two I've rehabbed and are doing pretty well for themselves. Caspian was in my main flock for a while but he got scalped because he refuses to fight at all to keep his rank, got scalped, went to...
