She looks like a very nice girl. Gorgeous & healthy too! Do you have to rehome her? As everyone tells me, what's one more? (And now as I say this to you, I'm taking in my littlest cousin's lone hen. Last survivor from a fox attacking and killing the rest.)
My girlfriend might take her. She cleaned out her shed, waiting for her to stop by later to see if she wants it, if not I shall keep the butterball. She is just so big, dying to see her eggs. She was tamer last night, today she was skittish, so I put her in the kennel for a bit instead of with Outlaw. I like the small banties compared to the big birds. The big birds need more land. We will see what happens.
I put her at my friends house, she has a bigger yard and we plan to get more chickens together. I want more birds. Her shed is cleared out and plan to make some boxes for her this weekend. We plan to share the cost and eggs. Can't wait for eggs. He said she was a good egg layer, so I am excited to have eggs. I also noticed the bird eating her own poo? What is that? She also ate all the egg shells in my girlfriends garden. Does she need more calcium?
It might be a sign that she needs more calcium. Sometimes hens just get into the habit of eating their eggs, a very bad habit. Easily fixed if she has a specific spot she lays at though.
She might need more calcium though. I suggest giving her some oyster crumbs/shells. That's one of the things I give to my girls for calcium and they just love them.
She is in good hands. Plus she lives down the street from me and she will staying in the family. She's the goose who is going to lay our golden eggs.!! I have permision to drop off more hens "} Her name is Bellina. Going to build coop in shed and build a small flock. They can free range in her yard. Yeah!! Building my own chickenland, one backyard at a time.
What a sweet hen. I'd let her in too. My Roo used to come in every afternoon after school and watch TV with me until I fell asleep. Then my Dad would take him back out to the coop. He was such a sweet Roo.
Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't lol..........chickens are fun. I am on a chicken high right now!! Going to visit the lady I got my girls from and grab two more girls. They will be small bantams. Go see her this week. I am looking for another wyandotte for my girlfriends coop and plan to visit a hatchery, too. Too excited to get this chicken family going.
I also spoke to a friend I haven't seen in a while and she has an egg co-op.......What? Very happy!!
