Useful sites: general chicken info

Post by jaydee67 » 01 Feb 2007, 21:09

I realised too late that by copying and pasting I was deleting the name of the original poster of the 'useful links', this was unintentional - a duh! moment. Thanks to all who have researched the links and shared them with us - I hope you will continue to do so.

Um, not sure if I am supposed to post on here but shall run the risk of being yelled at for trespassing :D
I found this link if it is helpful for anyone looking for rare chicken breeds or just general breeds. I think they are mainly in the south of England, but hey.

Anyone can post in the useful links sections - that's what they're for, to let other people know what you have found useful! ;) I've added the link to the breeders list int he eggs and growers section too.

Hope it's ok to post this link, it's to my Pekin Site, but has lots and lots of information on eggs, diseases, diy hen coops, and loads of info. It's for pekin owners, but the information is the same for any breed.

My site, still being built, includes a live cam which will eventually be outside, at the time of writing I haven't got past the first page, but keep coming back and watch it grow.

Update, chat room up and running.

The chicken exchange.com is one of the best sites around, adds, forums, clear and easy to follow.

That's a good site Laffinfowl. The recommendation of Chicken Vet Amino Plus to aid stress in chickens is worth a look too.

Ive visited this farm several times this year... Really is worth a look, ive never been to anywhere quite like it and ive been to a lot of poultry farms. Lots to see and friendly people. There is even a little tea/coffee shop
