Re: Hello from Hamilton

Welcome! I see you are from the Greater Hamilton Area! We moved here, to Eastern Ontario, 3 years ago from Hamilton. We lived "on the mountain" for 32 years. We have a hobby farm that came with a barn and a horse barn. And this is our 3rd year with chickens. This is my experience: We started with Bl...

Re: Good Morning!

The young ones finally made it out of their coop. First I had to give them a bunch of snow for them to find out they can eat it. It only took them about 2 1/2 hrs.

Re: Good Morning!

Good morning! This is the first significant snowfall seen by all our this year's hatch. Mine included. After shoveling, encouraging, and enticing with food, they would not come out of the coop.

Re: Good Morning!

Good morning! Thought I'd chime in before the morning is gone. All are turkeys have been put in the freezer; the stewing hens are next, probably next week. Finally got out on a walk today, not a really long one but a walk just the same. I really need the exercise; modified Zumba a.k.a. "Zoomers" and...

Re: Mice control

I'm 95% positive that the two sonic sound plug-ins (or whatever they are called) that I have in my kitchen are working, keeping the mice away. Haven't seen any evidence of mice.
I agree, a quick death is better.

Re: Lulu

Well then, she is a true loner and introvert! And maybe a late bloomer; so I would think she may calm down as she gets older.

Re: Egg production, and lack there of

Thanks everyone, for confirming that I wasn't just giving them excuses for not laying eggs. I should have mentioned the number of "0" egg days from the BSL's lately; there have been a few. Also, there are about four that have not seemed to recover fully from last winter's molt. That is why I decide...
