    New member in Oakland, CA but where are our eggs

    We are a family of four plus 2 German Shepherds and a Siamese living in the Oakland hills. We started with 6 Wyendotts two years ago. One died likely egg bound given the size of the eggs it was laying. One got bit on the head by a skunk and then ostracized by the others until it ran off. We are...

    Araucana raising

    I have been interested in raising Araucana and Americana chickens for years. I used to have a small Americana flock 30 years ago and wanted to try them along with a separate flock of Araucanas. The only problem is no one I know around here has any pure strains. So I was at the mercy of the...

    Hello all

    It all started when my daughter talked us into getting 4 chicks at the local feed store. At first I didn't pay much attention to them and my daughter did all the feeding watering and cleaning up. When they were old enough we let them out to free range. I was working on a project one day when...
