    Moved to PNW from NorCal - how can I keep my birds happy and dry?

    Hi all, A month ago I moved from hot, dry Sacramento to the Portland area. I, a Seattle native, am delighted at the weather change. My five chickens, not so much. This is the first time in their lives that they've had reliably wet, cooler temps. The first two weeks we were here, my focus was...

    Might move soon...advice for moving with chickens?

    We might be moving soon! I'm pretty excited. But I'm worried about how we'll move the chickens. The house we're looking into is 3 1/2 to 4 hours away. I can probably bring one coop, and we can build another there. I will definitely be downsizing my flock, hopefully to under 10 chickens. Any...

    Moving turkey to a new location

    As per my previous thread, I'm getting my turkey tom a new mate. But it's a surprisingly hard thing to do, since a LOT of farms in my area stopped raising them due to covid. Recently I've found someone who's willing to part with a hen, but it's a 3-4 year old. Can a hen of such an advanced age...

It’s off the ground and has 4 legs that prop it up. I mean this thing is SOLID. I would say this thing weighs about 800 lbs. We have it...

    Hello, we just received 10 chickens from @Jmiller89 and they do not seem to have handled the move very well, in regard to egglaying, with a current grand total of 1 egg, so far, in 2 weeks. How long should it take them to get over the move? I know that chickens generally lay less in the...

    What to do with Last Rooster

    We've had a small backyard flock for a few years, but are about to move across country. I've re-homed 4 hens, two ducks and one rooster, and feel good about that. However, we have 1 rooster left - he's about 3 and a half, a big boy (some kind of mix), and a little ornery. As of today, he's the...
