My family got chickens around 3 or 4 years ago-currently we have 14 barred rock hens (although that number will decrease when we figure out who is eating the eggs :( Plus we will probably...

    I just “inherited” 5 chickens

    We just bought a house and the guy asked us if we wanted to keep the chickens. They looked healthy, so we said yes. After cleaning out their filthy coop and run & getting the basics covered, we see we need to make it better, larger & more accessible. I have three chickens I need for dinner...

    New layer... Frequency?

    Hey all! So my sweet ancona laid her first egg yesterday! We didn't get one today, how often should we expect to get eggs from her? One of our ducks is laying daily so we're a little spoiled.

    I’m new to all this chicken talk and care, but I have read through some of the articles on here and some other places around the web. So after about 3 months of research and web surfing, I bit the bullet and bought 25 New Hampshire day old chicks from Strombergs. I have seen a lot of mixed...

    Fox problem...

    We have had our 5 chickens for about a year now. No issues with predators up to this point - this weekend one of our girls passed naturally. The next day one was snatched up by a fox and it ran off into the woods with her. I think our coop is very secure - hence not having an issue with this...
