I mentioned this in my Permac. book post. Can someone tell me who they are affiliated with?  I thought it was the Permacult. Alliance.  Are they independent?  Does anyone have contact information?Continue

Need layers, pullets

My little flock has dwindled and the two that are left seem lost without more of a pecking order and society.  Really.  I need at the least 2 layers, pullets, etc. to balance out the pecking order and increase supply.I am really surprised at their behavior since they are just the 2 of them now.This group used to be so active!  Where is every one?If you have hens to spare, or downsizing, let me know.  ernie l85017 at cox dot net.THANKSSee More

"I guess it depends on your set up. If your birds are enclosed in a run then you might have a chance like Doris. My birds are free range in a 20'x20' area with a 16x16' shade sail for shade. I am waiting for my mulberry tree to get big…"

Swamp cooler for chickens?

Yes, I saw the little one to make from a 5 gal bucket, but it's too small.Does anyone use a swamp cooler for their chickens?  I hate watching them in their misery in the summer.  They have a fan, mister, open sides to their pen, shade, lots of water.If you have one for your ladies, could you tell about your setup?  I think I will need a cooler that attaches to the hose because when I work I am gone for 24 hours at a time.Does the dust they create cause a problem with the cooler?Thanks!!!See More
