    I have been raising chickens for 5 years and love it and want to expand my brood. I can't make this workshop unfortunately, but I do hope you go over possible illnesses or challenges that can arise when keeping them (becoming egg bound, bumblefoot, mites, etc) Or at least recommend resources where people can hunt this info down. A few of these things came up for me as a new chicken keeper and I had to search many threads on the BYC forums to treat them as the clock was ticking.

    Bantams are great if you have space issues (a little bigger then a large pigeon) and super quiet but feisty enough to mad dog a cat looking through the bars ;)

    I've only got the two Hen n no roster to fertilize (in town) but I can bring 1-3 (the bantam lays once every two-days). The wife n I are thinking of picking up 1-2 more different breeds soon.

    James,
    I have ameracuna chickens (green eggs) I would be interested in swapping for bantam eggs. I have an incubator. I will bring a dozen fresh eggs with me.

  • James

    Anyone interested in me bringing an American chicken egg vs my smaller bantam chickens egg?

    I am looking forward to this meeting. Will you be discussing how to build coops?

    September 4, 2012

  • Tommy

    Ok sounds good, I just wanted to make sure there was enough material to take up two meetings - sounds like you have it covered :-D

    Hey guys,

    I'm good to talk about chickens, but I'm not sure about using this entire meetup for just Chickens. I suggest bundling this in with the rabbits meetup.
