    Hi. I live in the mid Atlantic East Coast. I have eighteen chickens, five Columbian Rocks, three Americaunas, two Cuckoo Marans, one Bantam, two Wyandottes, four Americauna Columbian rocks, one Cuckoo Maran Columbian rock, and a Columbian Rock Rhode Island Red. I got my chickens last March, and just kept getting more because I love chickens so much. I enjoy spending hours out in the chicken pen sitting in the coop or on the run. Can't wait to get started here!

    Hi everyone. So far I'm having a great time here. I have a question: does anyone have Wyondottes? I have a gold laced and silver laced chicks that are about five weeks old and I just read that they can go broody often. I already have a Dutch Bantam who lays eight eggs and then wants to hatch and so I really don't need any more broody hens, but I love Wyondottes and have always wanted some. Do yours go broody a lot?

    I have blue laced red wyandottes that are just at maturity so I don't know if they go Broody the time. I do know that they're very very sweet

    You can break any chicken from going broody. Just stick her butt in a small dog cage and remove the bottom tray. This is so air circulate around her and begin to cool her down. NO bedding or anything but food and water in with her. 3 days usually works.
