Does anyone have a flock that they don't feed? Their only source of food is from foraging? Is that possible with perhaps the smaller breeds?
Here Halloween an haircut diff.DansChickens said:I had 2 game hens they free ranged I gave them scraps off the kitchen like old cereal or crackers or something I made the sometimes they roosted in the roof and sometimes in trees I got afraid a hawk would get them so I made hilly billy wind chimes on the chicken coop so they'd be safe well my dog was antibiotics from its haircut it hates haircuts + lime disease when the got off the pills it killed Halloween black + orange game hen so I got afraid and gave the other one to my neighbor the person I give all the chickens I do not want that's bad but they got 180 poultry house chickens they ate almost all of them all summer now the have 50 for eggs but they don not lay and they're are well over do for eggs they were hatched like February so they outta be good by now but it's not my problem lol so no more games hens for me
Absolutely true..Sundancers said:An ol time game and not the same "game" from a hatchery (Imo) ... but having a chicken that will forage for themselves will also give you a chicken that will hide their nest from you also.
The games I had were great at finding what they needed but as I said they were also very good at coming in with a brood of chicks. Now if you are looking for chicks not eggs, they are the best. lol
