    I have 3 roosters and 16 laying hens, the roosters continously pester the hens and now the hens are developing bare spots on their backs, can I prevent this without getting rid of my roosters and also what kind of salve can I use for the hens. Thanks

      You have too many roosters. One rooster can and will take care of 8-9 hens. If you are not willing to eat a rooster, get 8 more laying hens. I have some for sale.

    if i feed hens laying pellets do i have to feed them grond oyster shells?

    • Oyster shell is a great source of calcium to help develop strong eggs. It will not hurt to feed them the oyster shell…you could always have it as a free choice separate from the food.

    Not a myth. If you think about it, how are most show birds kept?
    were they ever exposed to the task of sitting on eggs for hatching?
    since we are all so worried about getting that next grand champion the egg is promptly removed from the nest… silkies, seramas, and old english varieties have been reliable for me…

    I have a friend who wants to have a sustainable flock. She is looking for what she is calling “heirloom” hens “that haven’t had the broodiness bred out of them”. I have always discouraged broodiness when it happens in my flock because I don’t like butchering chickens and don’t need that much meet. I support my flock and garden projects with selling the eggs at a buy local stores and restaurants as well as others who regularly take things to the farmers markets in the cities so I really want eggs. I have found a few broody hens over the years and most of them are red stars and Rhodies because they are my best layers. I wasn’t aware that broodiness was bred out and wonder if she is just reciting a myth.
