    I have chicken anxiety?

    I've dubbed myself with something I like to call chicken anxiety. Now I'm not scared of chickens or anything like that. But I noticed something. Ever since Blacky (my prairie bluebell) passed away back in September, I've felt very nervous not spending a lot of time with my chickens. To the point...

    Because I loved her

    A few months ago we got some baby chicks from tractor supply. The first few weeks went by fine and nothing really happened. Then they got to the age where they could be out in the coop. I will forever regret that decision. We put them out and they seemed to like it. They had fun in their new...

    How did you cope with death by fox attack?

    Click this link for my story in a nutshell. I feel so empty right now. No one has chickens in this neighbourhood so they won't understand. Please don't reply explaining why this is my fault. I already know it is. Please.

    R.I.P Jennie Mae

    My sweet chicken Jennie Mae passed away last night. She had been acting strange but we agreed that she was just old. All of my other chickens are doing fine. Her favorite treat was blueberries and the peanuts from the Flock Party.

    Bye Ladies

    R.I.P. to my final two hens from the original 6. The first hens we bought were 2 White Leghorns, 2 Rhode Island Reds, and 2 Americanas. Sadly, after 5 full and happy years, all of those 6 hens are gone. The RIRs, one White, and one Americana all died throughout the last 4 years give or take...

    I think I killed my chicks...

    They can’t bust through the membrane - the first I thought was just weak but now just have done something wrong - only briefly opened (I mean less than 5 seconds) incubator on day 19 (and none were pipped at the time) to add water and now they bust the shell but not through the membrane. I’m...
