    I have been following you on Facebook for many months because I enjoy all of your tips, information, and new product promotions. Here in Sacramento, CA, we have about sixty chickens right now. We started with buff orpingtion, Ameraucana, Rhode Island, Polish, red and white leghorn, wyandotte, and barred rock. Then after catching "Chicken Fever", my fiance went off the deep end and added another 4 or 5 breeds. Then he purchased an incubator and that is how we ended up with so many. LOL! We love them and treat them all very well and spoil them with special treats daily.

    This is my first year having chickens so I started with a bunch of cold weather hardy breeds.  I have a black austrolorp, a silver laced wyandotte, a gold sex link, an americauna, and a welsummer.  I then "inherited" what I think is a black star and then 2 with feathers on their feet, no idea what they are!  We're looking at adding more this spring, a salmon faverolle, a columbian wyandotte, an ancona and a buff orpington.  We already get a bunch of pretty eggs, so I'd love to be able to keep them on the counter in a pretty way.

  56. I am new to the world of chicken keeping, but have found it to be my new passion, and quite possibly my new addiction.  On August 29 of last year, my shipment of day old chicks arrived.  These pullets are now 20 weeks old and should be laying eggs soon!  I will want to display them proudly in a Skelter, for sure! In the meantime, they have become our family's entertainment with their hilarious personalities and chicken antics.   I love that they RUN to greet me!  Clearly, there must be some truth to the idea of "imprinting" like the movie, Fly Away Home because they seem just as attached to me as I am to them.   I love them all!  Our Bantam Cochin rooster is named, Chaps. We have two Bantam Cochin pullets we named Wilma and Betty. Our two Americaunas are named Petunia and Cleopatra, two Buff Orpingtons, Buffy & Jody, and five Golden Comets, Dotty, Lucy, Ethel, Hunkie & Dory.  from: mindypatt@charter.net

    At 58 yrs old, I have just moved to the first home where chickens would be allowed.  It is 15 acres where I can do what I want.  For years (and I do mean years), I have read everything I could get my hands on about chickens and visited the feed store whenever chicks were in.  Though we have only been here a few weeks, I have already commisioned a coop to keep the ladies safe and feel I am finally on my way.  The Skelter would be a great way for me to see the fruits of their labor and my dreams.

I subscribed to you months ago.  Love your information.  I'm a new chicken mama.  Got my 3 girls the week before Christmas.  I have a RI Red, 1 Black and 1 Red SL.  Two of the 3 are laying, giving me 2 eggs every day!  I'm already so in love that I will be adding 2 more girls in the spring.  Wish me luck!

  96.  Hello!  I subscribed to your emails and am also a fan on Facebook.  Up until recently, I raised serama, bantam cochin, silkie, naked neck, and bantam and LF polish chickens,  as well as coturnix quail, cotton patch geese and ancona ducks.  I no longer have access to the ranch where I raised them, so they had to be rehomed.  Lucky for me, they all went to live with a friend, so I still get to see them every day and collect any eggs I see.  All together, I think there are about 50 chickens....darn that chicken math!

  97. I subscribed via email, I have Barred Rocks and Buff Orpingtons, a total of 18 hens.  I live on a small hobby farm and have had hens for about 5 years.  I so enjoy that they are a part of our little farm along with our 4 horses, 2 cats, and a German Wirehair Pointer.  Thanks for all the good information!

  103. I subscribed through email.  I am fairly new to the chicken world and am absolutely LOVING it!!! Got my sweet friends in June 2012.  We enjoy many backyard evenings watching these crazy ole birds and their hilarious personalities.  Each one is a different breed.  Welsummer(2), Wyndotte, Americauna, Rhode Island Red, Leghorn, Dominique and a Buff Orphington( 8 hens and 1 rooster). I unfortunately lost two to a mean ole dog but blame myself.  It broke my heart but they were given a proper burial, growing up in a funeral home....guess that's what ya do!   We are really enjoying their eggs and sharing them with our family and friends.  The Egg Skelter is the coolest thing I have seen and would be the perfect displayer for their awesome EGGS!

    Best of luck to everyone!!!

  105. Wow, one of these would be great to have. We get lots and lots of eggs from our girls :o)  I had a few chickens years ago when I lived in England then wasn't able to have them for many years (code/zoning).  After losing our home in the floods in 2011 we put our one hen and rooster in foster care until we were able to get some more chicks.  This April we brought Mama(black Cochin) & Harry (mixed ancestry) home &  we purchased some chicks from Cackle Hatchery: 5 Silver Wyandotts, 5 Salmon Faverolles, 5 Golden Comets - egg layers all. We also inherited 2 Americanas. Last weekend a woman customer at Tractor Supply asked if I liked chickens, said she had some but didn't like taking care of them and asked if I would like them.  So, now we also have another 8 hens of mixed ancestry.  We love 'em all.  Harry likes them all too....he's the gentlest rooster I've ever known.  Never hurts the girls and lets me pick him up and carry him around.  Of course we've lost a few from predators but are happily parenting 20 wonderful hens and one ever-loving rooster!  We also have a couple of mammoth donkeys, Pepper & Max, who seem to really enjoy the flock running through the barn and pasture picking "thing" that need to be picked.

    Hey, I am on the blog and enjoy your accurate reports, great stories and lovely photographs. I have kept poultry of various types for years (25 to be exact), most of which were in snow country.  No more frozen water or shovelling for me not - I moved to beautiful Oakland CA 4 years ago and am not looking back.  Did not have birds for the first 2 years BUT MISSED THEM SO MUCH WE BUILT A COOP AND STARTED UP AGAIN.  My only regret - the coop is smaller than I should have built - how could I have forgotten how chickens tend to MULTIPLY.  Love the blog, would enjoy being a winner of this give-away!

  111. Love the Egg Skelter.   We raise Seramas, as well as numerous layers for our family.  Our family eats Paleo and our chickens are essential to that lifestyle.

    I recieve your posts by email, facebook and pinterest, I think I also have you listed in my favorites. Since I have Chicken fever now, your site has been VERY informative and VERY helpful. Thank YOU for helping us all learn how to give our chickens a better happier chicken life. I now have 2 Buff Orpingtons Hens, a Buff Roo, A Barred Rock, what seams to be a Rhode Island Red, and not sure what the other hen is yet. She looks more spotted then barred, working on figureing it out. 3 Golden laced Wyandotte and 3 Easter Eggers are to hatch and will be picked up Feb 4th...hopes for more next year. Have a GREAT Day

  124. What a clever egg display! Yeah, getting my family to figure out my "system" for first in, first out somehow seems beyond their capacity. Right now my girls are on welfare so there is no need for a system. I think they didn't care too much for the variety I added to their diet, in the form of a different daily feed. Back to the tried and true.
    I subscribed via e-mail but I originally found you via Pinterest. Yeah, love Pinterest, but not as much as I love my chickens!
    I have been keeping chickens for a baker's dozen years now (does anyone even know what a baker's dozen is anymore?!) Right now I have 3 buff Orpingtons, 3 ameracaunas, one RIR, one black sexlink, a charcoal bantam cochin and the tiniest mini-bantam hen I have ever seen. She and the bantam cochin belonged to a friend and she gave them to me when I said I wanted a couple bantams. I was hoping for a setter. Then I lost my White cochin rooster and there went my hopes of hatching anything! Need to get another rooster. Have my eyes set on a Black Copper Maran...

  125. I subscribed through email and love reading the daily blogs! I have a variety of chickens - mostly barnyard mutts :) My favorite is my DK Cornish girl, her name is Miss Cranky Pants because she is .. well.. cranky :) I have 3 roosters (mixed with EE breed) and 14 hens - but I also have 14 little mixed chicks in my house in a box - they are 7 days old! And I have 20 eggs in the incubator right now due 2/2 - they're a barnyard mix too. I LOVE raising chickens!

  126. Love your blog - I subscribe via email.  We are slightly obsessed with our chickers!  We live in an area that can swing from below zero to mid 90s, so my hubby put a lot of thought into what breeds we got.  So far we have: Rose Comb Brown Leghorns, Buff Orpingtons, Barred Rocks, Partridge Rocks, Rhode Island Reds (they hurt when they peck treats from my hand!) and our friend just gave us the last of his two Red Stars.  We love how they each have their own personalities!  Thanks for a great blog! - Kelly at Dead End Acres

They are a Barred Plymouth Rock, a White Rock, a Buff Orpington, a Black Jersey Giant and a Swiss Appenzeller Spitzhausen:)  I hope I spelled the breeds correctly, lol.  I can pick up and hold all of them.  I got my first baby bantam chicks in August of 2012.  My 5 "big" girls will be one year old this spring.  They are addictive.  I din't hesitate one bit, when my neighbor was moving, and gave me his 5 girls.

  140. Just subscribed via email !! So Happy a friend told me about your Blog. And would love to be entered into the drawing for one of your egg skelters. I got my chicks and ducks  not long after we lost our only son, Hakan age 30, in a horrific tragedy (they said he took his own life). If it weren't for me getting my chicks to raise and take care of I would have gone to bed and possibly never gotten back up again after our son died, many times since my chicks have become adults I have thought about selling or giving them away but I know if I did I would go to bed and sleep all day. They keep me going , my counselor told me to never get rid of them. And The joy they have brought me is unmeasurable, just going out and sitting in the yard watching them brings me joy and calmness that I need. I have a wonderful variety,  Marans, Americanas, Silkies, Bared Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, Bantys , and a couple odd ones ( beautiful) that i don't know what they are. I also have 11 Muscovy Ducks. A Friend gave us Two Females and a Male But the rest of the 11 were hatched and raised here. Oh the joy I have had with those baby ducks and seeing them grow up , they ( including the chickens) will follow me all over the yard, they will jump up right next to me and even get in my lap. No I can never get rid of my chickens and ducks, I love them - they are what keeps me from sleeping my life away in my grief over loosing our son. They saved me from that. We get Chicken and Duck eggs daily and have shared them with many. Please enter my name into the drawing. And Thanks so very much. Tammy (kingslynn58@yahoo.com)

I posted on this a few days ago and its not here...so here I go again.  I subscribed over email.  I have 1 Brahma roo named Lrrrr, Ameracauna/Polish X hen named Cheddar Chip, Serama Hen named Gobbles, 2 boys and 1 girl from Lrrrr and my hen Butters who died recently in a Hawk Attack, and 1 boy and 1 girl from Lrrrr and cheddar Chip but hatched and raised by my awesome Serama Mama who went broody less than a month after laying.  She disappeared and I thought she was dead but then would periodically show up to eat and I finally found her on a nest under the deck.  She is fierce and extremely protective of her brood which are now twice her size but she takes care of them still and makes sure they get food.  No one is allowed to pick on them or she will fiercely attack.  When she brought them out the first time, my boxer who loves chickens...especially babies...ran up to greet them and my serama chased off my dog who weighs over 60 lbs.

    I subscribed via email. 
    I started keeping chickens 12 years ago when the local feed store owner gave me my first one - Gwen, who was a Silver Duckwing OEGB. I now have 35 chickens of so many varieties (Welsummer, Easter Egger, Olive Egger, Langshan, Swedish Flower, Basque, Cochin, Polish, Cochin frizzle, Silkie, OEGB, D'Uccle,  Barred Rock, Wyandotte, Turken, Saipan, and hopefully a Cream Legbar). To add to the flock  this year, I have my eye on a Modern Game, a Show girl, and Black Copper Maran. I love the rainbow of eggs, but most of all, I love their personalities. Sitting out with my hens is one of my best stress-reducers.

    We’ve gone Country! And our family and friends think we’ve
    got chicken fever. When my husband (John) was diagnosed with cancer, we had
    just moved to the country on an acre of land. He started talking about chickens
    and goats. Whatever he wants. So we built a pen, bought a coop, and started
    looking for chickens. He wanted chickens that laid colored eggs and I wanted
    large brown eggs. Our 2 or 3 chickens we had decided on turned into 3 Americuanas
    (Col. Sanders, Dumb Cluck, and Chicken Poop) and 3 Rhode Island Reds (BBQ,
    Grilled, and Fricasee)…all 2 month old pullets. John tells everyone that the
    first egg we got from “our girls” was worth $600. He figures that covered the
    cost of the materials for the pen, the coop, feeder, waterer, and all the food
    they’d eaten before they started laying. We lock them up at night in their pen
    but they free-range during the day with our 2 turkeys (Thomas and Geraldine aka
    Tom and Gerry),  three 5-month old goats
    (Chester, Princess, and Miracle)
    and all are watched over by a LGD named Clem. Clem is a Great Pyreness rescue
    as are the goats. They are all so much fun. The girls fight for attention as
    much as the goats and the turkeys and show jealousy by pecking at whoever is
    getting the most attention. John says if he had known years ago how much fun
    all these pets were, we would’ve had them when our boys were small. I’ve
    connected to the Chicken Chick at Egg Carton Labels thru Facebook. I would love
    to win the Egg Skelter to display our eggs in. Right now I have them in egg
    cartons that are numbered just to remind us which eggs are the oldest and to
    use them first. The Egg Skelter is a fantastic idea and design.

  176. I have gotten more good advice from your blog than from any other site I've seen. First year as a chicken owner....have 5 silkies, 3 hens 2 roos.  They were a surprize.  My cute little hens are a red and 2 white  Nugget, Henny Penny and Chicken Little.  The males are a red, Turtle and a black (my fav, but don't tell the others) named Bernie.  Was orignally Bernadette, but SURPRIZE! Ha.  My little girls have started laying, and th 2 whites have already gone broody once.  That was tough on em, especially with the cold her in northern SD.  Hope to win the awesome egg skelter  Thanks for all you post.

  177. I almost got an egg skelter for Christmas but my son couldn't find one so I would love to win this one.  I've been a subscriber on RSS feed forever and have 8 chickens, an ailing black australorp--she's a very old lady, 3 RIR's, 2 silver lace wyandotts and 2 buff orpingtons.  I've been raising chickens for over 10 years.   I am a devoted chicken lady.  So much so, my grandkids call me grandma chicken!
    Thanks tons to you and Manna Pro for the great giveaway!

    Thank you for sharing that, Tammy. I cannot fathom that loss and am certainly happy to know that you have found some solace in your backyard pets. I have heard lots of people describe them as therapy animals and I believe it to be true. Stay strong and keep loving those chickens and ducks- they need you as much as you need them. ♥

  185. Thanks for stopping by my blog!  I love your topic. I've always wanted to raise chickens but we live in a suburban neighborhood that doesn't allow agricultural animals. I'd love however to win this egg contraption for my sister who does raise chickens! I subscribed via email.

    Start doing all the reading you can in books written by reputable authors such as Gail Damerow. Once you have a feel for the basics, I would subscribe to Backyardchickens.com it is a wonderful source of great information, not all of it accurate, as with many online communities, but you'll soon know enough to begin discerning what's credible, what's not and what your own preferences are.
    Good luck to you in your fight against the county!

    Hi Michele! If you can let me know where you live, I can recommend some breeds for you. Visit my Facebook page and give me some more information about why you want chickens and I can narrow it down a little bit for you.
