Afghan Pine-Lower branches turning brown

My large (25 feet?) Afghan pine is turning brown on the lower branches and looking dead. The top shows new growth and beautiful greeen!WHen the first few branches died back, We had our landscapers remove them. This year, it seems like even more lower branches are dying.From what I have read, this may be from Overwatering?It sits in the middle of my yard surrounded by grass and a sprinkler system and has been that way for years.Any suggestions are very appreciated!Thank you in advance!See More

1 Buff Orp, 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes

I am looking to reduce my flock. I have 3 hens I am willing to part with that are 2 years old and laying. They have been fed organic crumble and enjoy fresh fruit and veggie scraps. Im sure they would enjoy any humane life, so diet is not my main concern for them. Just good care.I will sell 1 buff & 1 Wyandotte or all three together.Healthy and laying almost every day. Buff Orp is very docile and easy going.Asking $25 each to VPA members.60th st & Thunderbird.See More

I love your chicken run!  I will be building one soon at school. Helps to see see how simple it can be.  Also worried about the heat. By any chance do you have a sister Julie?  You look so much like someone I went to school with at ASU Design.

This link should work better: http://supurbanfarm.wordpress.com/2011/04/22/poultry-waterer/

I like the one you found, too. We almost built something similar to that for our coop, but decided on the hanging version for mobility. We have a mobile coop, so the bucket would have to be kept in the coop and the chickens would make a mess of it. Since our birds free-range, we can't have it sitting outside the coop for the same reason. 

We just converted a horse pen to a poultry pen, and we may do something more permanent in that area. I would probably use larger pipe to eliminate any risk of freezing & cracking the pipe. Have fun, whatever you decide to do! 

Oh, if you decide to build your own, we'll be putting in an order for nipples soon and we could add your order in with ours. Small orders can get pretty pricy!

Glad to have you.  I just need your email address and I will send you a google docs order form in early February which will allow all of to order our products.

Payment can occur as via paypal or by mailing a check details will be in the email order form when it is sent out.

Looking forward to your February order.

Good morning, Kathryn & Happy New Years!
Here's a link to my website that tells more about the waterers: http://supurbanfarm./poultry-waterer/  This is our "spare time" business, and since we don't have any spare time, it's progressing slowly.God willing, it will be our retirement business. We live this life, love this life, and want to share about it! :)

Here is another page that talks about chickens: http://supurbanfarm.com/chickens/  I hope it's helpful. You're getting ready for a fun adventure!

Hi  Kathryn, you sure live in a great place for chickens if you live here in Sunburst Farms! You are welcome to stop by and see my flock. I certainly don't have anything fancy, but my chickens are happy and when they're happy, we're all happy, right? My ladies are a mixed flock of all ages, so if you wanted to start out small and I feel that you'd be a good fit for them (the fact that you're studying first before leaping into chickens says a lot of good things to me), perhaps we could consider you adopting 2 -3 of them for free. They'd not lay eggs every 18 hours like pullets just into lay do, but they would give you lovely eggs every few days or so. Feel free to email me at jane (at) valleypermaculturealliance.org when you get to that point, or anytime you'd like to see the setup and talk chicken. I work both in the office "in the city," as well as from home some days, so I'm relatively flexible as to week days and weekends. I'm not a morning person so afternoons tend to be better. In the meantime, enjoy yourself here and everywhere! :=)

Welcome to the VPA, Kathyrn! Any person who likes a mojito with organic homegrown mint will be a perfect fit here! Hope you find lots to interest you.

Sincerely,

Jane Doyle
