That's a perfect set up, Country!  So clean and purdy and big.  We can't have chickens either.

Thanks. I've read that many urban areas will now allow 2-3 hens, but no roosters. Maybe you folks can start politicking for some changes in the rules.

Anybody grow crops/snacks for your chickens? Is there anything we should NOT feed them? I wanted to give some NZ spinach to the rabbit, but found out it isn't good for him, so is it okay to give to the chickens?

WOW! I watched that whole video from "Fresh Eggs Daily" and learned all kinds of great stuff for our feathered friends. Thanks for posting this, Ginger.

You're welcome. Smile

I also watched the entire "Fresh Eggs Daily" video.  Lots of good stuff there.  DH and I are entertaining the thought of raising chickens, so I eagerly absorb all the info I come across.

One thing I wonder, though, that I haven't seen anyone talk about, yet: how to keep chickens healthy and happy during the frigid winter weather/season, when there are freezing temperatures and snow (sometimes lots of it) on the ground.

Anyone have ideas or best practices you'd like to share with the group?

I just read an article from someone raising chickens in Colorado. They say adult chickens can survive cold winters as long as they're protected from the wind and snow. If it gets down to a hard freeze, check their water, regularly. They can't live without it if it freezes.

GB, Did you read back through the thread? I think this was discussed.
