    Eggs can be a source of protein and to guess how much do the guys (roosters) in my frontyard love them, i tried giving them some. and to my amusement they really enjoyed it :)

    We got baby chicks last August and only one of them was supposed to be a rooster but our hatchery messed up and sent us three, so we now have two beautiful, 4.5 month old boys that we cannot keep. For the past month, we've had them separated from the rest of the flock and living together in...

    I said I would post some pictures of my roosters in my "keeping two roos" post. One picture is of the flock. I am thinking about keeping the blue wheaten roo. I thought I was buying ameraucanas from a breeder but the other 3 roos have things that make them obvious easter eggers. I will be...

    Hi, since I am pretty new to having chickens I was hoping I could get some feedback on what you feed your flock when you have roosters. I have read that the amount of calcium in layer feed can be very bad for roosters. So would it work if I kept them on grower feed and just kept a dish of oyster...

    I have a RIR rooster that is a yr old and has 13 hens but doesn't seem to be satisfied. He actually killed one hen and I am afraid he is after another one. I bought chicks this spring and they are getting big enough to turn out but I am afraid he will start picking on them. What is my best...

    Hi. My name is Tracy and I have only had chickens for a few years. It really started out as a 4H project that my daughter had, but she has since moved on. So, now I have started to exhibit the birds. I am really pleased with the start of this year's show season with my standard NH. My dad...

    My neighbour purchased 4 chicks for laying eggs. although we are zoned as a rural residential, which does not allow livestock, we had no issue with it. Turns out two of those are barred rock roosters and they not only crow in the morning, but anytime they feel threatened. they let them free...
