    Wanting to re-home Brown Leghorn Rooster, Lower Michigan

    Have a brown leghorn rooster thats 2 years old, very handsome boy. He does like to try to assert dominance over people, but as long as you know how to assert dominance, he shouldn't be an issue. Wouldn't do well with children though. He does very well with hens. He does well in a coop as well as...

    Accident Hatch. Free Chicks

    When I was at the end of my pregnancy, apparently I had a Cemani go broody and hide a nest under the nesting boxes. When recovering from having my baby I wasn't going out to the coop, my husband was (he is NOT the chicken lover of the family). Needless to say the nest kept getting passed up...
