I just started BackYard Chickens and my friends seem to think of it as funny when I looked at breeds and reconized my old chicken Ying as a La Fleche and started screaming that "I had found it!" It says the La Fleche breed is rare, but I just got it from Atwoods. Is this breed actually rare? But Im 15 and can't build a chicken coop myself and my dad doesn't want me using his tools, and won't help me himself. He doesn't like my chickens. So when winter came it was much too cold and my dad wouldn't let him in the garage because the fact the year before my Pullets pecked a perfect hole in his $100 model airplane, they seem to like the taste of wood more than their feed. So my Ying who I bought hay and kept him in a Dog Kennal outside w/ a couple of pullets died. The pullets we're fine though. I felt bad I should of gave him to someone else who could give him a much better home. Have any ideas on getting my dad help me build a chicken coop? So next time this kind of thing won't happen, and maybe I can get some to sit on their eggs.
