Re: Is there anybody there?

Yep, I still pop in from time to time.

Re: Full Membership renewals

I would like to make a very small donation. The problem is I don't, and won't use Paypal or any other net payment scheme that requires registration and the gathering of personal information. Is there a workaround? While I'm not a major forum participant, chickens are far more interesting, I think th...

Re: Pullet eggs

Such a shame the whole business in my opinion. Statistically the hatch ratio of males to females is 50/50. The jungle fowl, all four varieties I believe, live in small family groups, much like humans and many other creatures. A common arrangement is one senior rooster, his hen and possibly their off...

Re: Red mite help

Hello henboy. Large wooden coops are a problem, especially if built with planks or tongue and groove. Red mite don't live on chickens so this means they are in your coop. To date I have seen no scientific evidence that DE or any other 'natural' method often espoused on the Internet actually worked t...

Re: Is it Me?
