    Would love to see an area with information dedicated to roosters.... and how to raise/manage them as mine is going to be headed for the pot I think...
    And poop... I think people would appreciate information on removal/usage and coop design ideas for easy cleaning...
    Just an idea....
    Thanks for listening...
     
  2. I agree with the rooster one!! There are lots of questions on them!

    I am not sure about Poop though.. Maybe in managing your flock..

    There is a lot of talk about roosters in the flock management section, if that helps.

    As to the poop and what to do about it, well, you mentioned a couple of things. We have a Coop design section that talks a lot about how to manage poop.

    Here's a great page about the Deep Litter Method: https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=1560-DLM

    Don't
    forget to check out the learning center, which has a lot of information that is sometimes hard to find in the regular threads. https://www.backyardchickens.com/lcenter.html


    I
    have no control over when or whether new sections are created, but i hope this might help you some.

    -Managing your roosters is part of flock management
    -Poop, inspecting poop, telling the difference of poop is part of Flock Management
    -You could also ask questions about poop cleaning in Coop section of this forum as well as Managing your Flock section too.

    I hope this helped. [​IMG]

    Since I'm new here... I get that you don't need poop...
    but I know I haven't read much about roos as a "here are the basics" kind of info. Would love to know what they're thinking.... and where I may go 'wrong' if not aware of their pea brained idea of my roll in their existence....
    so where do I find the afore mentioned
    "Flock Management". I'm gathering it's something to read not just a forum for questions....????
    Thanks for your time, and help.

    Well, the flock management section is still a forum, but it has lots of great information.

    Someone had written a really great rooster page, but now i can't seem to find it. Does anyone know what i'm talking about? It included tips for correcting an ornery rooster, etc.

    Quote:That's just what I'm looking for!!!! I wish those "really good pages" would be kept in a file of sorts. I found a really good page yesterday with details for killing,cleaning plucking...and I have some other topics that I keep in a folder now... It would be nice if BYC had a folder like that too... oh well. If you find it.. I could use it!
    Thanks for the reply

    when you have a specific question about roos or about poop... simply start a new thread with that question... if you want general knowledge.... start a thread asking for that... people love to talk/type lol... and there are plenty of opinions to float around here lol

    Quote:Thanks for the suggestion. I've got a question with roos up now since I think mine is hopelessly in hate with me...for what I'm not sure.... What ever happened to "don't bite the hand that feeds you" ??? I just found a home for him a minute ago...so problem solved...
    Love your quote... Dogs are best!
