    These are mostly for newbies, but people who have had chickens for years can learn something too. Doesn't hurt to read.
    These are articles written by me on several topics:

    My newest: ~*Coop bededing options*~

    Thank you. I am only sharing what I have learned through the years. I can't say I am a very experienced chicken person but I know some. I have learned a lot myself just by writing.

    Sort of off the topic.... Saw you are in Kalispell, Montana. We were just in Kalispell, Montana in August! Our car's front wheel bearing went out at almost the top of West Glacier. Amazing place. We were then towed to Kalispell, Montana and slept in the car at a junk yard. :p

    @ChickenLover200 I agree with Michael O'Shay's compliment on your articles. So far I've read two of them:

    Egg eating, what it is, how to prevent it, and partial solutions
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/egg-eating-what-it-is-how-to-prevent-it-and-partial-solutions

    **How to photograph your chickens and other poultry**
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/how-to-photograph-your-chickens-and-other-poultry

    Both were well done and helpful (well, the photography still requires a lot of practice on my part, lol). Thank you for sharing and adding to all the wonderful information here!

    This entire area is pretty amazing. It's one of the reasons we moved here. You probably slept at the big wrecking yard on the south end of the city. It's not far from our place (which is a little ways further south in the foothills).

    It was American something or other towing/wrecking company. I forget what the owner's name is... seems like FOREVER ago. :)

    thank you. I still need a lot of practice in chicken photography too. I'm learing right along with those reading my article :D

    It was not the one near our farm then. The one near us is called Wisher's Auto Recycling.
