News from the Coops

Rainbow Layer Hatching Eggs

Currently accepting preorders for rainbow layer hatching seeds. $30/dozen, local pickup only. Limited time offer only! These babies are most likely going to inherit a blue gene from their father, but I can’t guarantee it for a few weeks. There’s a chance some could be sired by an F1 olive egger cockerel. He’s been around…

Auto-Sexing Dark Brown Egg Layers

In the urban chicken world, everyone wants pullets. Or, little girl chicks. The poor boys are seen as a nuisance more than a necessity. For this reason, along with the dark brown egg craze, we are adding a breeding group of Penedesencas. It will be sometime next year before chicks are available, but we have…

Hubbard’s Hens Barnevelders

The one breed I picked just for me, just because they are pretty, are the Barnevelders. Barnevelder chickens were first called by name at a 1911 agricultural exposition in their native Netherlands.

What’s the big deal about Avian Influenza?

If you have chickens you have probably heard something about the Avian Influenza that’s making the news. You may have heard about it even if you DON’T have chickens. It’s kind of a big deal. But do you know why? First, you should know that “avian influenza” in general is always around. It’s basically the…

West Texas Winter Classic

We had an amazing trip to Lubbock this past weekend. The double card ABA/APA show was a lot of fun. Sydney made some new friends, and even brought some home with her. We were able to meet some more of the super nice poultry world people. Also, we even got to share a little we…

Hatching and Planning

Welcome to 2022! Hope yours is off to a great start. Any big goals happening in your coops? I always make some goals at the first of the year, and this year I asked Sydney to make some as well. Some of mine will seem crazy to people outside of the show poultry world, but…
