Free hens to a good coop (or to a good pot)

We have 5 hens (3 barred rocks, 2 Ameraucanas) who are nearly 3 years old.  Still laying, though they have slowed down tremendously over the past month.  We are looking to start over again in the summer with chicks, as my kids really like the chicks, so I am happy to let these go, as I don't think we'll be seeing a lot of eggs over the next few months.....let me know if you're interested.  See More

"I have neighborhood cats that frequent my yard as well, but when I let out my chickens they all disappear.  Chickens are miniature T. Rexes,"

douglas binder replied to C.C.'s discussion adding new chickens to flock in the group ABQ Chicken Keepers
"Just be ready for some squabbling!   I would add two rather than one and if possible I would add some "obstacles" to the coop, where they can hide, if need be..... Make sure the new ones are big enough to defend themselves, or fast…"

"Michael, there is a highly rigorous application procedure involved with membership in this group, so you should indeed consider yourself lucky to be a part of it.  I had to bribe my way in, but that's the way things work in the elite world…"

douglas binder replied to Binders's discussion Where to get chicks? in the group ABQ Chicken Keepers
"Town 'n' Country Feed would have them.  Be aware that your chickens will attack your chicks if you put them in together.  I learned that real quick!"

douglas binder replied to Gayle Wise's discussion Traumatized Chickens in the group ABQ Chicken Keepers
"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…"

"I did it when my chicks were around 4 or 5 weeks last August.  Didn't use a heat lamp, as the nights were pretty warm and they all huddled together.  In late December one of them started crowing.  That was a hint...."

2 Rhode Island Whites to a good home (or a good pot)

These girls are 2 years old and have never laid an egg.  Not sure why.  They are healthy (one has molted and is a bit bare on its neck) and sociable, but both have been a bit problematic as I try to introduce 6 pullets to the established flock of three. My kids won't let me make them into dinner, but if you are quiet about it you can.....

douglas binder replied to Binders's discussion Need info on suppliers in the group ABQ Chicken Keepers
"Diatomaceous earth is made up of fossilized diatoms, which are hard shelled algae.  It's mostly silica.  It scratches the shells of insects, and thereby kills them by dehydration (leaky exoskeletons don't work so well). The…"

"Most hardware stores sell DE (diatomaceous earth) in 5 and 10 pound bags.  Probably a whole lot cheaper than the La Montanita Coop.  I have never given oyster shells to my girls--I am assuming there is enough calcium in the laying…"
