I need to choose between 2 roosters soon, I have a barnevelder and a brown leghorn, both have yet to crow and not aggressive with each other yet, but which one?

Hi Everyone i am now selling my Poultry Health Tonic and Natural Wormer which is what I feed to my hens to keep them healthy, the eggs strong and the hens free of worms. You can feed ad lib or sprinkle over their daily grain. As it is completly natural there is no withholding time for the eggs. It is on my Green Shopping page @ www.greenurbanliving.co.nz

off to Raglan for Easter, and Hermione and 3 chicks may come home to
auckland with us... Unless we construct a run while we're down there...
My sister is over chickens and roosters rampaging the gardens. I'm going to integrate our shavers with our pet bantams sometime this winter. For now they are housed next to each other, part of the process of
getting to know each other again. Been finding sticky eggy bits amongst
the eggs in the laying box. Wonder if it is one chook in particular breaking and eating? Getting about 1- 3 eggs a day from 4 chooks, it's
their 2nd laying season. Midnight and Henny are laying too, pretty impressive for a cou!ple of old birds!

what differences did you want to compare?
My four are all sisters, and they are all different. Theres bossy boris who thinks she belongs in the house not the coop and will even take on dogs, theres dora who goes broody, boots who just tags along with whom ever she can find and number four who always disappears over the fence and stubbornly refuses to lay in the coop.

We are thinking about keeping chickens. ...I was wondering whether it is better to get 4 of the same type or get different ones so we can compare teh differences?

I throw all my clippings and leaves and spent vegetables from the garden into the chickens area and they love it. they really get excited! when they have finished scratching through it I compost it and start again. They have inhabited a fenced off area of back lawn for the last six weeks (the total of my chicken keeping experience) and so far it has not turned into dirt coz i constantly give them bits and pieces to muck about with. We have a pile of old railway sleepers in with them and turn them every few days so they can scratch around for bugs underneath.
