    I have never used this place but might start now that I’m down to one dog. The other was aggressive with strange dogs so it wouldn’t have worked for her to see and hear them all the time.

    I think the 20+ dogs and cats I've fostered or kept and millions of barn cats would disagree. :)

    I’d never heard of Vital Essentials but I like it, and found a place to buy a few miles from my house. Thanks!

    I think that would be a good start, as sort of an elimination diet, to find out what...

    I’ve been feeding raw to my cats and dogs for 6 years now. I credit it as extending and improving the quality of life of my in-very-poor-shape senior rescue cat by at least a year. The only time...

    I’ve only skimmed through the responses but I’ll tell you about the sweet, funny, stoic little dog I PTS on Saturday.

    She’d had a couple back issues in the last few years but they always resolved...

    I’ve had a few rough weeks of chicken keeping. Pizza, the shyest of the Barnevelders and everyone, was not looking right one day and her crop was huge. This happened to be the day after we finished...

    Bad quality but this is what happens when I walk into the yard now. Spaghetti was just bold enough to pop out from the bushes but popped back in when no one followed. LOL

    I think Waffles was around 20 weeks and Sausage a week or two less. Those first eggs were more exciting than the birth of my own children. LOL

    I wish we could have a backyard full of chickens but...

    But chicken wire isn't going to keep much of anything from getting in the coop. We have a 6 foot privacy fence around the yard and raccoons have no problem scaling that. I haven't seen any, but I'm...

    We are getting ready to put a little “paddock” on the back of our coop. Not so much to turn the chickens loose but a place I can easily grab them if they shove out the door, and so I can have my...

    My husband tried to cut off his finger with the circular saw this week so the coop is on hold again. Sigh.

    I looked up pictures after posting that and some were really pretty, and there was a lot of variation. I’d have them.

    Are they supposed to be good layers?

    You have totally underestimated my ability to overthink every detail, change plans on a daily basis and drive my husband nuts. LOL

    Finally made some progress on the coop. I’d say it’s half done. LOL

    Here is the front view. Chickens are living under the playhouse now and we’ll cut a hole so they can go back and forth.

    I still don’t understand what eggs you want to hatch. Reading back, it sounds like you plan incubate some from the chicks you have. Aren’t half of them deformed in some way?
