My Woes With Rose

Blog: The Call Again Farm Journal   -   Tuesday April 14, 2009   -   By Laura

This morning, when I went out to do my morning chores, I was going to let Rosy out of the nest box to eat, drink, and do her business.  She was nicely settled on the eggs, though, and refused to get off.  Maybe she was going to be a good broody after...

As all of you regular readers of this blog know, we got our first chickens ever this year and been letting them go outside of their coop almost every day. They have such fun, digging under snow and leaves to get at roots and grubs in the soil. I knew that...

Chickens Eating Eggs

Blog: The Call Again Farm Journal   -   Thursday December 04, 2008   -   By Laura

Yet another problem! The hens are eating their eggs. A few days ago, there were a couple of eggs that were cracked by the time I got them in the house, but I just figured that I had been careless in collecting them. Apparently, though, the hens have a...
