We made a diy chicken carrier out of an old metal foot locker for the Tractor Supply animal swap on Saturday.

It fit in the backseat of the car and worked well but wasn't as stylish as a diy bamboo chicken carrier.

Picking the right disease-resistant apple variety can be a complex decision.

Low work edible mushroom cultivation paid off nicely with a delicious fall flush.

Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton just added 3 Rhode Island Red laying hens to their flock and are sharing the details at WaldenEffect.org. The new chickens learned fast how to drink from the new style chicken waterer they make and sell at Avian Aqua Miser.com.
