    No that is a pet peeve of mine as well. And another peeve of mine on craigslist: how hard is it to make an ad with all the info needed? Nothing frustrates me more when I read an ad and I am more confused after reading it than before. For sure a no sale there from me! Seriously why even post something if you can't describe what you have for sale and how much it is!

    After these birds drop in price and they are a dime a dozen I will count on getting mine from you. Putting in my order now so you can get a jump on things. :) Seriously though are you hatching guineas this year? I still want some(not 30 from Mcmurray either). I just need to off load all my dang bachelor roos.

    I am a product of the 80's and I say sniffing glue not paint. must be a 2000's thing or something. weird kids ;)

    Coffee BAD NEWS~!~~


    I was just reading the federal register pertaining to chicken ownership. And you can trust me you know that I would never make stuff up just to benefit myself..


    And I quote:

    "All acreage purchased after 2014 must have a minimum of 1 rooster per acre or any portion therefore of."


    After reading this it appears you need 5 or 6 roosters, depending on whether you are over exactly 5 acres or under. The good thing for you is I just happen to have 6 roosters. If you want an extra I bet I could even find a 7th.

    Nope. Trap was empty. I suppose the critter was still good and full. I have more meat scraps to put in tonight to try again. Will keep trying for at least several days

    Errr.. Young man I paid Heidi's price too as did BC...... But look what I got for it..


    This is the one I cannot tell if it is a rooster or hen, it cackles like a hen, sings the egg song tail looks like a rooster to me, but the head looks hen.. I had thought Ole might have gotten to this ones mother. BUT I am fairly sure it is 100% CLB

    These are couple of my pullets, They are wondering what all the fuss is about. Taking their picture was no big deal to them.
