Do your birds free roam or do you have them in a fenced in area?
lemme see...
free roam = BANG by the forumites who don't want to see them eaten by the dog
caged = BANG by PETA-forumites....

either way i'm screwed....is this a loaded question? :ohwell:

I want chickens and have a hen house but I want to make a pen around it to keep them out of the hood and away from the dogs:yay:

Well......we've managed to loose...um...MANY to the dumb dog. But the dumb dog is going to live with my FIL far, far away so she can torment his adopted KIDS instead of my chickens.... :banana:

So....long answer to the short question....FREE RANGE (we feed them twice a day). They perch on top of the horses too. It's funny. One has a fascination with blue jeans. She obsessively pecks at any leg that wears them. We have a shelf lined with straw, and bales of straw so they can walk up onto the shelf and most of them lay on the shelf, but one or two is laying anywhere she happens to be...just spits them right out in my flower beds :killingme.
Chickens are cool. We have Rhode Island Reds, Golden Reds and several Barred Rocks.

Yeah, she always wins. But I'll fight this one to the end! :oops:

There is a rooster on the next farm that wakes me up in the morning. Miss Sleeping Beauty never hears it and thinks I over react. I can't imagine the racket if we had our own rooster close by. :banghead:

some roosters don't c*ck-a-doodle-doo as loud as others...and if they do eventually...eat 'em :lmao:
My Barred Rocks aren't NEARLY as loud as the Rhode Island Reds...want a Barred Rock rooster? I have 2 extras. :flowers:

Well, nothing will happen this year, that's for certain. Too many projects going on around the place to fit in building a coop. Without a coop, I am afraid we would just be fattening up the local fox populace. :lol:

I also am toying with starting a Martin colony, but want to research it a bit more. Going to build bluebird houses for the fenceline this winter. Maybe chickens next year. I'll peck..err, pick your brain before we choose breeds, etc. :cheers:

You know martins prefer very VERY tall condos, in the middle of a flat field, but close to a woodline? They're picky little dudes! I have too many trees for them. :sad:
Bluebirds....LOVE bluebirds..... :flowers:
