There was a guy not far from me that raised game birds until he was arrested.

... I don't have chickens... But saw cute lil' button quail o_O looked like white chicks the store owner has a farm... he gets pheasants, chickens, quail, in his store to sell o.o

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

We used to have around 10-12 hens and a couple of roosters. Unfortunately, a fox (we are in the middle of the suburbs) got in and killed every single chicken except for the mum and her three chicks locked in their house.

Now we only have the three chicks (very much grown up now) left. The two roosters decided one day they hated each other so one lives by himself and the other lives with his sister.



This is a photo of dad Brutus and his harem (RIP). Brutus was hand-reared and one of those roosters who would kill you soon as look as you. Unfortunately for him, he was all of maybe 12 inches tall haha.

We aren't supposed to have roosters here, but these guys were a sort of oops hatching so until someone says something they shall stay.

Dont currently have any as our current city ord doesnt permit them on less than a acre sized property and then your restricted to just 6 hens max per an acre.

As it stands now I am engaged with a few neighbors in an effort to petition city hall for a change in the Regs to permit this on smaller parcels. Should that fail, Ill resort to about 4-6 ducks instead to supply me with eggs since the regs dont prohibit that specifically.

In the past I have had several Plymouth Barred Rocks, Rhode Island Reds and usually did 2-6 lots of 25 Cornish Rock Crosses for the freezer. There aint too many things in this world more tastey that "farm fresh" eggs and Fryers for the dinner table. The best part is I know what is in my food and dont have to worry about chemical contamination or bacterial contamination of my food supply. Grasshoppers, Ticks and other bugs werent a problem around the homestead either! Plus I have always had a strong desire to be more self suffcient.
