I just found this sight today. Our coop is nearing completion and we will be looking for 6 youngish birds, maybe 24 weeks or so?  Any suggestions where to buy them?  I'm in Kits, are there any of you with hens

in this part of town?  I would love to see your girlies, your set-up and ask lots of questions.  First time for me. I'm reading all the books but am such a greenhorn!  I'm delighted to find this community.  If anyone is going to the auction in Langley I would love to come along. (I don't drive).  Thanks,  Lorraine

4th & Woodland you can come see my chickens any time (not far from Broadway & Commercial). My landlord let me do it, and I live in an apartment! My situation is not typical though. Send me a message here (I have to be your 'friend' to send you a message). I am supposed to be at the workshop (Ecodreaming) all day tomorrow but definitely home Sunday.

Hey all, I'm wondering if anyone in my neighborhood (near Broadway and Fraser) would be willing to show off their chickens and coop. I used to have some chickens in Victoria and would like to get some for our place in Vancouver but my landlord wants to see first-hand how it works. Anyone interested in showing off their chickens (this weekend)? Please let me know.

Hi Chicken Folk,

Ameraucana Available:  I just sold a coop to a young man near Clark Dr. with a nice array of birds and he's downsizing his flock a little.  He has an ameraucana that lays...brown eggs.  I have met this bird and she's a healthy layer - I think about a year old - $20.  Call me up if interested 604-329-3863.

Hi All
Just received this posting from the 4H club, in case anyone is looking for chickens.

From: "dykeman"
Subject: 4-H fundraiser chicken sale

We have a big 4-H auction coming up on Sept. 20th at McClary stockyards. I have attached a copy of the flyer. 100% of the money is going to our 4-H club. One of the things going through the auction are 3 Rhode Island Red ready to lay (or just started laying) hens. Healthy fully vaccinated etc. We also have several project birds; As well as 99 whole grain, naturally feed roaster chickens, that are Federally inspected and shrink wrapped. going up for auction. They we raised as a group market project.

We are accepting proxy bids, but would also love it if anyone can make it out! It should be fun!

Scratch is a mix of grains with either corn or peas (my birds prefer the corn option). In addition to scratch, you can feed your hens layer pellets which will promote egg production. The closest feed store to Vancouver is probably Roddicks ( in Ladner. They are very knowledgeable and will let you know what else you need (a small bag of oyster shell and of grit would be recommended).

I need more scratch. Anyone need anything from the feed store?

Ducks aren't allowed although I don't see why not. They are friendlier, can produce just as well as chickens and don't make as much noise.

How bout ducks? I've been thinking duck for their excellent slug eat abilities.
