Hi, I'm new to this site! I've had hens on a small scale for the last two years now, and really enjoy them. Until yesterday, I was down to two hens, they are kind of regular hens, one is a black \ white speckled hen ( she rarely lays and only started laying last Christmas! ) My other is mainly black with golden undertones and she started laying around the same time, and lays practically every day. I decided to get some hens, and was attracted to what I now believe to be polish hens, and bought two.
I'm going to try my luck again,just put 4 eggs in the incubator,I've tried twice before (last year)but with no luck,they keep dying before they hatch. Not quite sure what I'm doing wrong but I'm trying it again with a few changes.
So I finally gave in and let bill get goats.
He has been building a 5 x 6 goat house. We are getting 3 male goats in sept. All 3 will be 12 weeks old. One is a Nigerian dwarf goat, and the other 2 are mini lamancha /Nigerian dwarf .
The goat house
And the 3 amigos.
3 breda cockerals.
Pick up only I won't shop
Our chickens are 8 weeks old now. Wigwam is definitely a rooster! He hasn't crowed yet, but he's got massive tail feathers! He is growing into a fine bird.
I joined the 4H poultry club, so now I can show my chickens! There is a show on Sept. 28th, and I'm bringing Wigwam and Raisin along.
Any tips for showing? And will I need a chicken crate/carrier? Thanks.
