The 'egg song' is NOT quiet. Chickens do not know how to sing quietly- when chickens are happy, the whole world knows about it!

  Any leftover apples ......
that YOU don't want to eat but are still basically OK (remember, mold or fungus isn't good for chickens either!)? The chickens'll be happy to take care of those for you.

  A quick tip to keep boredom at bay!
Throw a few armfuls of leaves in your run, then scatter some scratch in the chicken's leaf pile and watch them go wild! It'll stop feather-picking- for a few hours, anyway:P.

One of the partridge is molting. It looks like a fether pillow in that coop!

  The Molt- Coming to a Coop Near You!
My poor Polish hen- the mother of our four three-month-old Polish chicks- is officially molting. The poor girl has three tail feathers left, and whenever one pets her or she flaps feathers fly everywhere, like in cartoons. The coop floor is liberally dusted with glossy black feathers, and she is VERY cranky.
Ah well. She'll be OK. In a few months.

  Jersey Chickens
Thanks! There were no restrictions on raising poultry in our town- just that if they bother our neighbors, we need to find them a new home.
We're not exactly 'urban', and not exactly 'suburban'. More like 'municipal', we have a standard 50' x 100' lot. However, 'Municipal Chickens' didn't sound quite as nice!

  Jersey Chickens!
Good for you! Many urban homesteaders find there are local restrictions about raising backyard livestock. Did you have any trouble with town or neighborhood rules against chickens?
But would you consider the Jersey Shore to be "urban"? Here in Northern NJ, we wouldn't!

  I've been saving sunflower seeds year to year just because they're pretty (and the seeds from the mammoth variety are great for us to eat). I'll be planting them near the chicken coop when we get that built next year as well.

  Thanks!
My chickens say thank you! As a side note, they're are a hoot! I let them out today, and off they went, galumping across the yard!
I just looked at your page- Button Quail are so cool! Lucky you!
