Recommended Posts

welcome! I love your chicken names - very cute...

I just installed my WIR but instead of upgrading to a cube I got another !gored! I figured it would give me more flexibility for introductions/quarantine/down-sizing

they have to be kept separate first though, Claret, in case of pecking.

I'm a fully integrated Yank!

LOL!!

I'm dual brit/american - does this mean I'll get pecked by everyone?

so am i, it means we can free range with both flocks....

 

Swing both ways? *giggles*

 

Yes, I agree, careful integration with quarantine in case of infection :lol::wink: Nice to see that someone reads the FAQ section.

Hi! I am new to the flock! I've lurked on this forum for awhile--just now joined! I'm in the rainy Pacific Northwest. I've had an eglu for a year and love it--also have a wooden arc that I love too, just not quite as much! Hoping for the cube for christmas! So Hello! I am still trying to figure out how to add the cute little chickens to my signature!

My friend has three little girls who were all VERY excited about the wedding - I was slightly puzzled about the enthusiasm until she said 'but we don't have real princesses here' I guess I forgot the details that only Disney has princesses here - quite cute I thought

Hello

Yes I'm brand new. Been a new chicken owner going on 8 weeks. I'm not sure of the breeds. I'm guessing 3 Rhode Island Reds and 3 Rhode Island whites. Not sure but the whites are substantially larger than the reds. All 6 are very aggressive to one another. I'm taking that as a sign of being Rooster's. I got 6 to insure 3 hens but I'm convinced no hens. I will start again and give these birds away.As it is there won't be eggs for a very long time. I cannot have rooters and I'm only allowed 3 hens in the city. They were straight run chicks. At the time I had no idea.I do now .I read about chickens every day.
