So I finally gave in and let bill get goats.
He has been building a 5 x 6 goat house. We are getting 3 male goats in sept. All 3 will be 12 weeks old. One is a Nigerian dwarf goat, and the other 2 are mini lamancha /Nigerian dwarf .
The goat house
And the 3 amigos.
3 breda cockerals.
Pick up only I won't shop
Our chickens are 8 weeks old now. Wigwam is definitely a rooster! He hasn't crowed yet, but he's got massive tail feathers! He is growing into a fine bird.
I joined the 4H poultry club, so now I can show my chickens! There is a show on Sept. 28th, and I'm bringing Wigwam and Raisin along.
Any tips for showing? And will I need a chicken crate/carrier? Thanks.
I Store my chicken feed outside in aluminum garbage cans with lids. I had to throw one bag away bc the lid wasn't tight enough and water got in. The second one has a super tight lid so no water but I just discovered worms all in the feed as I got towards the bottom of the bag. Probably maggots, Tanish short fat worms. I'm tossing the food but think the chickens ate some of the worms. Is this ok? Any suggestions for better food storage outside? Hate always having the food go bad??
I have three ISA Brown hens. They were about 5 months old when I got them in December 2015, which means they're around 2 years old now.
One in particular (her name is Subway) has always seemed a little more "fragile" than the others. She loves attention, loves to gently peck at my clothes or hair for hours if I'd let her, and is okay with being held. Unlike the others, she doesn't run unless she's being chased (or has been left behind), and she sometimes perches 6-12" up, but prefers to stay on the ground. She always sleeps in the nesting box, and the others sometimes do it too.
