  Rooster Question
Hi again! Finally got logged back in to this. I have a question that hopefully you can help with!

We are in Michigan so it's usually up in the air whether the weather is nice or not.....and we did open our coop up a few times when the snow was here, but usually our chickens don't go out in it...or if they do they just stay near the coop. Anyways, it's been nicer here lately (in the 40's with no snow), so we've been opening the coop and letting them free range (they free range all spring, summer and fall, usually every day). I've noticed that my rooster keeps falling over on his side.....and the back of his legs are very red (like dry skin almost). And, when we picked him up (they are pretty nice chickens) to see if maybe something was stuck on his foot, there didn't seem to be anything, but one foot/leg did seem much stronger than the other. We thought maybe he slipped on ice or snow when they were out previously, because the other 3 chickens are not doing the same thing......any suggestions?

Thanks for your help! Glad to be back on :)

  Sorry to hear about your loss !! This being my first year raising chickens has been rewarding! In a small rural town I live in, many neighbors have shot most of the racoons, skunks, and foxes, even though we are surrounded by small farms! My girls are still pullets and will turn "hens" this coming March. A church friend of ours, just lost all 8 2yr old chickens to (believe to be) a fox...here's to a hopeful extended life! BTW...I also have 2 ducks 1 hen and 1 drake...hoping the drake has some impact!

  the sad truth of raising birds
Well, unfortunately we suffered a total loss of our ducks and 3 of our chicks in one night a couple of weeks ago. We have not decided if it was a fox or a raccoon, but it had to be something large enough to drag off 6 half grown ducks.
Then a possum got 3 more chicks a few days ago. No matter how safe or secure you think your birds are, nature will prove you wrong every time.

  Steel Siding On Our Coop
The siding on our coop was salvaged - from a pig barn :) There is chicken fenching along the top with open space...I'll post some more pictures soon :)

How do your ducks do with the chickens? We are thinking of "taking in" two - they were with chickens before, but not ours. Do they sleep in the coop as well?

  Thank you so much for the info. I just got your post. I will look into both. We are in West Virginia, so I don't know which is closer. I guess less shipping time would be better for the chicks. I am deff getting me some of the black and white ones. I think you said Wyandotts. That other one in the pic is pretty also. Thanks again for getting back to me. Please stay in touch. Have a great farming day :)

  Yep, You are right. They are adorable :) What kind of baby chickens did you get and where did you get them from. We are going to be needing some more chickens soon. We have had some bad luck with raccoons. I think I have eliminated the raccoons but we are down to four hens. Two Austrolorps, one Red Comet, and One Auricauna. Will be needing a few more. I just love the pic of your black and white chicken. Would like to have a few of them. Any suggestions as to where to get some by ordering them. The only place around here is Tractor Supply in the spring around Easter. Have a great farming day.

  Thank you for visiting my webpage. The emus and all my animals are pets. I raise them so that I can work to feed them!!! I just love the minis! I don't have a lot of pasture and need something that doesn't eat so much!

  Hi again,:). Glad you asked that question. The Myotonic breeds are not known to be a industrial class hair/fiber producing goat, however, they do produce some very wonderful cashmere. Especialy if you have the silky fainters. The fur/hair on the myo's come in short, medium, and long lengths. Ad a assortment of colors. The primary color is black/white. As for milk production, again, they are not dairy goats either. However, they are good milk producers. I am certainly no expert on them, but from what I have found, they are the most well rounded and versitile goat of all. There attributes certainly make up for anything they are lacking otherwise. I know we certainly love ours. I am actually going to Kentucky this weekend to pick up two more yearling does. That will bring our small herd total to seven. We have one wether, two first kid does and a pair of twin 3 month old black and white bucklings out of one of the does now. Check out whitmore farms on the internet for more fainting goat info. Hope this helps a little. Have a great farming day.

  Hello again, :) Thanks for the reply. I love to talk "FARM'N". LOL. The Highlands are the most wonderfull of all the bovine. We love the heritage breeds and they have been arounf forever. Extremley docile and hardy. No help needed at calving and eat what other cattle will not. Also produce the worlds best beef. You should really look them up on the internet and do some research. You will be amazed. As for the Myotonic "FAINTING" goats, well, what can I say? They are just the most wonderfull breed ever. They also are very hardy and resist illness. They do not have the instinct to climb and escape. We have had them for almost two years now and I have never had to put one back in there enclosure. We just keep them for entertainment and sell some of the kids every year. It is so hard to let them go when we do sell them. They are so stink'n cute and extremley fun to watch and be around. I would recomend either animal to anyone. Please feel free to ask questions. Like I said, I love to talk farm'n,lol Please tell me some of your favorite farm stories. Looking forward to hearing from you again. Have a great farming day.

  Re: The Homestead
I show for myself and I show my chickens, horses, and soon the goat and cattle. The black and white hen is a silver-laced Wyandotte. She is one of the best chickens I have ever had and she is absolutely the softest prettiest one also.
