My Chickens


This is a look at my chickens and their coop. If you are “getting ready” for the “END” you should seriously think about getting chickens.

    @foxvalley560400 I have zero problems with this project so far. This is the easiest way that I have found to have a constant source of renewable protein.
    We have racoons, possom, fox and coyote in my area. So when I made the coop, I made it to be able to shut it up tight at night but still have ventilation up high during hot weather. My nieghbors have lost their chickens twice due to loose dogs.

    @Yankeeprepper were you ever thinking about hatching them so you can get more chickens

  6. Yankeeprepper | July 14, 2010 at 3:51 am |

    @partymunkey11 yes you can hatch the eggs as long as you have a rooster,

    @micahistired I close it up everynight, I worry about racoons, foxes and coyotes, but we have owls as well

  9. micahistired | July 14, 2010 at 5:16 am |

    thats good, one more thing do you close their coop every night or do you not have a problem with owls?

  10. Yankeeprepper | July 14, 2010 at 6:03 am |

    @micahistired That is what I heard too, old chickens get made into soup, new chickens come in,

  11. micahistired | July 14, 2010 at 6:43 am |

    How often do you switch out those type of hens? cause my family had chickens a while back and heard it was about 3 yrs before hens stopped producing eggs.

    Have you tried making mayonnaise with your eggs yet?

    I had 20 mixed birds including p;ymoth rock . buff rock(yellow) roadisland reds, a leghorn(small size) , a white with black spots(med size)
    the leg horn was the runt and was picked bloody 2 times a year.I had a dirt floor covered by hay, my birds got little red bugs that i think came from squirls or chipmonks that wold raid the feeder. i think the bugs were lice full of blood. moth balls helped and i hear red ceader helps. the chickens ate EVERYTHING in the chicken pen except bind weed.

    I buy my feed from the local Amish. All natural ingredients. It is a little more expensive, but the results are worth it.

  17. Yankeeprepper | July 14, 2010 at 10:13 am |

    I cannot believe that everybody doesn’t have a chicken or two. This is so easy it kinda feels like stealing! I give them my garbage to eat and they give me eggs? what the heck? Crazy!

    Nothing like hen fruit man. I have 8 Rhode Island Reds. They are great chickens too.

  19. Really enjoyed this video… Someday I will get some chickens … THANKS FOR POSTING

    Wow, the linoleum is a fantastic idea!

  21. EbolaV1rus | July 14, 2010 at 11:31 am |

    Your chickens look so plump and tasty, and the roosters look big and healthy, I can tell you take good care of them.

  22. Thanks

    Yankee: Just wanted to say thank you for the great information you share with all of us. I look forward to seeing what you post every couple of days. If we were neighbors, in closer proximity, I think we would be fast friends! P.S. Thanks for the note about the colloidal silver. I appreciate what you do. Noreen

    Thanks, they taste as good as they look.

    That’s OK, I am still not worried about oil depletion. Don’t go changing for me, and I promise I won’t change for you.
