I think they will create a friendly atmosphere too. I told my wife that when we bringing them home and she laughed. She'll see though. I didn't even think about using feathers for anything...good idea! Chickens are great....so many uses, and just feels nice being around them.Good luck. Your hens will create a friendly atmosphere around the yard. The eggs will come in handy and the feathers will be a great addition to the kids craft days. They can go on cards, decorated boxes (oatmeal boxes, cocoa box), colages ect..........
:I am reporting you immediately to the SPCA!
Making them drink from a poultry roaster is inhuman psychological torture!:
Congrats on the birds,...have they started laying yet?
They have all ready laid 3 eggs. That's pretty good considering the amount of time I have had them.Awesome hens... I just aquired 5 Austrolops ( I think thats how they are spelled) by trading a bantam and 2 giant mixed breed roosters plus cash.So I have 7 Hens now. They making a nest area yet?
