Very Pale Combs

Two of my RSL's have very pale combs. The first one I noticed had also gone through a tail feather molt, but now I noticed another hen, also with a very pale comb. Could it be stress, since we put all the 22 chickens into the barn? (21 hens and a rooster) Background: As soon as we allowed the hens t...

Re: Selling meat birds from the house?

What we have done twice in the past is have another couple go in on an order of meat birds with us. We housed the birds, fed them, etc. When butchering day came, they also came to help with the process. And they would pay us for their share of the costs. Having said that, we tried it twice and that ...

Re: Eggs???

YES!!! I have 21 hens (plus Anna the Cochin). If it wasn't for the youngest ones, hatched this past May, I wouldn't be getting eggs either. For the last 2 months, I have gotten an average of 4 eggs a day. Oh, and as of today, they are all in the barn, fenced in with a hen house attached. We stapled ...

Re: Just always pondering silly stuff..

"Skip the Dishes" - What's in a name? Delivery is delivery.
Then there is the kind where you can order, and get delivered, all the ingredients to make the meal at home. That would eliminate the decision making and planning process for some people.

Oh my gosh! Yes, she deserves some cushiness to help her through that molt.

Wow! You were young when you got married!
It's a sad time when it doesn't work.
Good luck, and wishing you all the best.

Re: Brown egg layers

My young Barred Rocks that were hatched at the end of May, are laying now. I bought the eggs from the Lombardy Buy-Sell-Trade at the beginning of May. We do not heat our barn or coops. There is also the light factor; this time of year has less daylight. Even though we put a light on in the barn hen ...

Re: Newly Acquired Cochin

I have a dog kennel...or pee pen that can be stretched out in my indoor coop. I use that to keep them separate but close. It works well. Mine has a little door. Eventually, I just leave it open. The Cochin will take a little time. They are lovely birds. I have a standard one I hatched in March she ...
