Rare Copper Maran Rooster, 11 weeks old (Alb. NE) Needs a home

Healthy, beautiful young bird, beginning to crow, beginning to mount the pullets, needs a home. He has matured at an incredible rate, hatched April 10th in my classroom. He has been well-cared for and loved. Marans are a rare breed, and make good free range roosters, smart and protective. Marans are the birds that lay beautiful chocolate brown eggs. He would be butchering size in another month. We have a backyard coop with a small flock, and no room for a rooster. I don't want to waste him. I…See More

"My hens are doing better. Not laying good yet, (about one egg every day or so) but behavior-wise are much more normal. I began feeding them scratch in addition to pellets, and adding electrolytes to their water, and feeding oyster shell. They look…"

"I am so sorry for what has happened.  I agree with the others.  Keep your lovelies.  You have put so much care into them and they have gifted you in return thus far. In some ways, I guess you have to be the rooster.  Encourage…"

"I would keep them. They will start laying again. This time of year everyone is slowing down because of molting and light issues. I have 8 layers, I am getting 2 eggs a day right now. And they haven't had the shock yours had. I have 3 that are…"

"There is a psychiatrist in Corrales who specializes in poultry.  I'm not sure about his expertise with canine induced trauma, but it might be worth checking into.  My hens have been seeing him for years, and with his assistance they…"

"Thank you so much for your encouraging and speedy replies. It's good to hear that recovery is likely. Do you have a local source for high quality lay feed, preferably organic? I was buying from Ranchway, but they must be out of business…"

"Gayle,Sorry to hear about the traumatic attack to your girls.I have not had that happen as our Hens are in a coop. We did have a problem with "not laying" so we cooked up some soybeans and gave them a "push" to start…"

"Gayle, Im so sorry for your loss. I've experienced this too frequently. They will recover. I had my first batch of 25 chickens (& 2 roos) almost completely slaughtered by a neighbor's dog. We had maybe 7 or 8 hens and 1 roo that…"

"Hens slow down in the winter, they aren't traumatized by what happened a month ago. I'd feed lay crumble, hen scratch, and make oyster shell and grit available - period - and see if they start getting back to normal digestion."

Traumatized Chickens

We live in the Belair Neighborhood, and a month ago two dogs scaled our 5 foot concrete walls and killed 2 of our chickens, and badly injured another, that a week later died. I was home when it happened, so was able to save the remaining 7 hens, but they were badly traumatized. They still are not laying, have reduced appetites, some still have very loose stool, and all remain nearly quiet (not at all like they were before!). They had just begun molting when this event occurred, and have…See More
