    It happened! I bought 10 Sapphire Gem chicks back in late February and just found my first egg in the nestbox. It is very small, but hey, you have to start somewhere! (Pardon the powdery hands, I was hitting the new earwig population in the storage part of the coop with DE when I found the egg.)

    I'm not a farmer, however I grow chickens even if I'm not experienced and I don't know when to sacrifice them. Last time I killed 3 chickens when they were 2 and a half years old because I taught they would have more meat if they are older, however the chickens were inedible tough chewy and I...

    I just decided to slow cook some chicken breasts and make some sort of a chicken soup that'll feed me for 3 or 4 days. I have a quite a bit of chicken in deep freeze but wanted to use it before it got too old. Anyway, as I was cutting off the plastic wrap, I noticed that the sell-by date was...

We'll see in a few hours if I turn into a zombie :D: Tasted fine but it was very greasy, and literally fell away from...

    Went out today to get the eggs and a raccoon had gotten into the pen and killed four. Know it was a raccoon because the heads were all gone and part of their breasts. I had a covered shed style roof over their run and the run is built with galvanized hardware cloth. What I never did was close...

    I was watching a video with Joel Salatin, last night, and he mentioned something about using geese for "areal predator protection". Has anyone tried this? Does it really stop hawks from killing chickens?

    Hey guys, I had some kind of animal eat through 1/2" OSB that was screwed to 2x4 framing on my chicken coop. It got inside and killed all 12 of my chickens. Entry point was about 24" off the ground and the size of a basketball. No claw marks. No claw prints as it was raining. Didn't really...

    I have a good bit of freeze dried food and am always trying to find a NEW way of cooking it on the trail. This turned out pretty good. First I started with about 10 spork-full scoops of freeze dried "Chopped Chicken" by thrive. (http://www.thrivelife.com/freeze-dried-chopped-chicken.html)...

    I am new to processing home raised chickens. We butchered a year old rooster (Mr. Rooster), last summer then froze him. He had rigor mortise. His legs stuck straight out. I left him in the fridge for several days hoping that would go away but it didn't. I didn't want to leave him longer to...

    This is for new fryers of chicken. Experienced fried chicken cooks will be bored here. :D: This is the easy way to fry chicken. It is easiest to cook in an electric skillet so if you have one and you are new to frying, that's the way to go. Otherwise, you'll need a good sized skillet, cast...
