    Hi. I'm Dan. (Poultry Addict & Hatchaholic)! I've learned a lot about the many different breeds from BYC so I thought I'd become a member. I'm just getting through the turkey-test phase that my wife suggested, when I mentioned that I wanted chickens for eggs, to see if I have it in me to murder an animal and eat it. (I can and did [​IMG] Since then I've hatched some barred rocks in a homemade incubator and determined that I need more land to do the things I'm interested in.

    Hi I am a new member. I have inherited two beautiful Roosters that were wandering in the woods near my home. The man who had them no longer wanted them. I have named them Rock and Roll. They are great. They are free range right now until I build a pen for them. I have talked to other farmers and they say to just let them go in the trees at night. They have the run of three neighbors yards and we all have agreed to keep them. I worry about the cold temps at night and also predators like racoons which are around. They have been fine though and sleep under the eaves on my deck rails at night too. They keep each other warm and get along very well together. I have been feeding them rooster chow, black sunflower seeds and some bread. I would appreciate any advice on caring for these guys. We live in the country, but have houses close by.
