A few years ago, we took a vacation through Utah. Their old barns were wonderful! I'm hoping to go through the Eastern states, someday, for even older barns. Your house looks wonderful!

  Im so sorry to hear about your fire.

I think the basement is a better place to keep chickens than the bathroom, especially since we have only one usable bathroom at the moment, and that is the one where the chicken lives!

Counting down to March 7, when all these birds ought to be out of my house (but then we will have brooder chickies! )

  Are you having any luck with your new hens? We just got a new one and she is in quarantine right now, in the bathroom. We also have a prolapse hen recovering in my exercise room and the respiratory infection hen in the kitchen. I feel like I am running a chicken hotel around here!

  Introducing new birds:
Thanks for visiting my page. I have not had super-great luck introducing new birds. Hens are pretty easy. You just put them on the perch with the others at night, and in the morning they think that new hen was always there. As for roos, I have 2 right now and I aim S-L-O-W-L-Y working through this process: http://www.upc-online.org/chickens/newmembers. html..It is a big PITA. I ma going to get some more hens soon, which should help make things easier.
Are you planning to get new birds soon? If you do let me know and we can compare notes!

  Our son uses and pvc run he made that is covered with chicken wire, at one end it has tin to keep shade and 1/2 the roof has tin, too. It allows the old crew to met the new crew and son moves the run around (ever couple of days) and then when night comes and it's rainning they all get put in the coop (lights off) and released in the AM.

Good Luck.

Oh and When mine was a baby he was housed with my chicks and it was a small house and they kept going into it until they got too big. I had 5 to start with. Then I had a overhead cover for them and they used that for shade and from rain. When its hot they love being hosed down, they will lay there and enjoy.

Yes emus will wander if given the chance. Mine never tried to get out but my goat managed to pop open the gate and so my emu took a stroll and I am glad he didnt get hit by a car. He was easy to catch cause he was so tame. Animal control is the ones who came and caught him and then they delivered him after I called and posted his bail. My fence is 4 ft in some areas and some areas are 6 ft. The 6 ft is by far more safe cause if spooked he could go over short fence. Mine never has been spooked. Mine is a male and I had him for 11 years, and yes he was lonely during mating season. He was always looking for love and would fluff up and prance trying to get your attention. They can live to about 45 but mind justed passed away last year. I think he might have gotten injured when he gotten out cause he passed not long after. I will be getting another when I manage to get pens set better.

Emus are not really high maintenance by the way, I fed mine a mix of layer, chick starter and scratch when they were babies. Then just scratch when they were grown and I mix an allstock sweet feed with it. They will eat just about anything and you have to keep baby chicks away from them cause they will eat them when they are small.

  Hi there
I have just the one goat Baylee who is a African pygmy. I ended up with him cause the owner was fed up with him cause he really knows how to get out of pens. He gets out of mine but he is still in my yard and he gets along with Maggie my sheep they are buddies. Emus make wonderful pets if you raise them as hatchlings. They love being petted and mine was raises with all my animals so they get along. They will go after anything new to them and one of my dogs teased him and so she gets chased. I raised mine with chicks that I had gotten at the same time and that worked really well.

  Hi there
Thank you for visiting my farm page. Animals are wonderful to have and enjoy.My friendliest birds are light brahmas, roadisland reds and wydottes. The brahmas are by far the quietest breed and very mellow. You have some nice pictures posted. My little farm has a way to go to be nicer. Needs more fence so that I can get the whole 2.6 acres fenced.

  Thanks! The picture of our chicken is a Light Brahma. We also have some Plymoth and Barred Rocks! It is so true that they each have their own personality! We recently added ducks to our flock and they are pretty funny too :)
