    Hi, introducing myself!

    After decades of wanting backyard chickens, in 2008 I ordered 5 barred rock pullets from a local feed store. They were barred rocks, alright, but 4 pullets and 2 cockerels. Yes, their math was wrong but I got a free chick out of it. This was a great introduction to keeping chickens. Fast...

    Rouen lover

    I bought four unsexed ducks last year from TSC. Not knowing breeds, we picked two ducklings I assumed were Pekin and two that I thought may be khaki Campbell or Rouen. I ended up with two female Buff and two male Rouen ducks. The sweetest ducks ever. This winter I turned their baby pool upside...

    Hi. Looking forward to learning about chicken keeping and having fun doing it. We bought our 'retirement' home late last spring (40 acres) in a very rural area. We are lucky enough that there was already a chicken coop on the property. However it's not very big (4x8) and no run. We don't have...

    Had to rejoin the forum again

    No, I'm not new to having chickens. Back in the late 1980's and early 1990's was when my mum bought my first two chicks. One was a tiny Bantam (I still don't know his breed.) and the other was a White Leghorn hen, but she passed soon after her two months from a genetic disorder. It was because...
