Re: The tweedles

Just to close the loop on this should anyone look it up in the future-this chick is 4 weeks old now and walks fine although seems a tad knock-knee’d. No limp or lifting his foot or favouring either side. His wing issue seems to be resolving as well and I think that when he moults and gets his adult ...

Re: For WWW...What am I?

I pulled this thread up to add a couple new pics and had to read through it. windwalkingwolf I laughed and laughed at some of your comments lol. Here’s my latest baldy chick. One of the tweedles. One is clearly slower at feather growing than the other. Baldy #2 772251AF-8106-4B35-B1F2-D23BC553B134.j...

Re: Help me with interior design! Garden shed turned into coop

Lol @TomK I also agree with you that whatever you do...the chickens will use it. All that other stuff about removable perches, vinyl flooring, pens, tarps, built in cages...the majority is to make the humans life easier!

Re: Three amigos

I’ve never had bearded chickens before. Does it look like this guy will have one? He’s definitely got cheeks. Which is how he got his name. Maurice Cheeks (some basketball player). Plus hubby sings “some people call me Maurice...” every time he sees him So I guess it’s sticking. 9BBD7B9A-2952-4A19-9...

Re: Help me with interior design! Garden shed turned into coop

I just thought of something else. I bought tarps to fit all 3 wired walls of my attached pen. I use screws and washers to attach to the top board directly under roof line of my pen and 2x6 boards with bricks on top to secure the tarp on the ground. You can see one still up in the picture. My chicken...

Re: Help me with interior design! Garden shed turned into coop

My coop is 8x10 with an attached roofed run and a separate open run behind. When we built the coop we had some sort of fantasy that we would store garden tools on one side (about 8x4) and house chickens in the 8x6 portion. Ya right lol. That didn’t last long for 2 reasons. #1 I wanted more space for...

Re: The best part about poultry

Yep until last night, I would agree that watching them doing their chicken thing is the best thing ever. I still haven't found an answer to the question of whether it is too cold at night to let my three plus week old chicks stay out over night, so I let them run in the sun by day and take them bac...

Re: Good Morning!

Planting my morning glories along the fence line today. That marks the beginning of summer in my mind. Was my dad's favorite flower and today would have been his 86th birthday if he was still with us. Those big blue flowers are the colour of his eyes and will always be prominent in my yard 💕
