    The Velociraptors have arrived!

    Drove almost 190 miles to get these today, plus an awesome rooster. They are going to live in the living room in a large cat/dog carrier. The one hen on the computer monitor accepted my finger offered to her and got on in and then sat on my shoulder for awhile. I have had them just an hour in the house! Seems they like me. The chicken diapers arrive Thursday. This is not a joke. These are chickens and lay eggs I can eat!
    Dusty the cat is NOT amused! The other cats went and hid.

    Great looking hens Smokey, how old?

    Our 20 are now 15 weeks old already, and the little hen and the 3 roosters are 8 months old.
    Great fun, Pips the 8month was pecking at me and was trying to really get my attention. So I picked up and we had a few minutes of lap time and she was good. (I think she misses her truck rides to the field)

    I treat the outside world as one raw very warm wet chicken that has sitting out too long. wash and sterilize everything me touches. pepperj

    Chickens in the house?
    It would seem we are now up a famous tributary without any means of locomotion.

    Absolutely! It's the latest rage. If not for the long legs, you'd think they were pigeons. And the crowing and the clucking.

    Of course, they will be outside some in a portable chicken "tractor" as they are called.

    Long time ago, we had an assortment of free-range bantams. They initially roosted in the trees, but we lost a few to predators, so built them a coop, large wire enclosure, that they would return to at night, and could be closed up. Have fun with them. Great personalities.


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.

    Having a little animal at your home less than an hour and have it come to you and sit on your shoulder is my idea of good.

    Cute. The one sitting on your monitor looks ready to send a text or email. Why do I sense material for an upcoming story featuring these chickens?

    I used to have a Rhode Island red hen that would ride on my shoulder while I worked in the yard. A racoon killed her and over half the coop full of chickens and two ducks, but the rooster took out one before he died and I had a field day on racoons that summer that it happened. ended up with 25 racoon pelts.

    Cool, both of my parrots have diapers they wear if they are in house and not in their cage. They were them with they are on my shoulders, walking around or sitting on the furniture. I have a large cage on screened in porch they spend 3-4 hours a day on top of, cage door is open and they come and go on the cage.

    The new chickens are cute but not much of them to eat.

    Those diapers will be a gift from God! Now all I have to do is convince the cats they will not be murdered by the feathered fiends. I bought a bunch of 100% bath towels off Amazon and they just arrived. What the one person did was use one for the bottom of the large carrier, and every couple days take and thrwo it in the hopper then do a wash with just the towels, and no mess in the house.

    The one Banty rooster we had used to chase my son when he was a toddler, ‘hooked’ my kid good once or twice.
    We’ve lost several hens to hawks over the years. One day I found pieces and parts of the Banty stuck up on the side of the garage door. Must have been one heck of a fight.
