Okay, thanks for the advice. I'll definitely put that on my to do list. I currently have 6. They aren't fully grown adults yet (6-8 weeks) and their coop is nearly finished being built.
Thank you for the advice. It's a bit hard because they are on the back side of the wall, so they are on another street, but we will definitely try to be friendly!   What do you think is best, telling them now before we put the coop in place, or stopping by after it's there with a little letter that answers some common misconceptions/concerns about chickens?
Hello everyone!   I'm going round in circles on the internet here trying to find the governmental page that has the actual laws and ordinances. I've found plenty of other sources but for some reason the governmental page has been so difficult for me to find, and I've found it before! I just forgot to save it to my browser.   I'm specifically looking for the part that says non-commercial birds are allowed 20 feet from own residence and 35 feet from neighboring...
Yeah I used that 90% to do the math for my chances here. This week I'm not much more certain about the sex at all. Pics soon
Ok I see what you all are saying. And if I'm going by comb color alone, then it seems like of my 5 chicks, just one is female. AND I got three of them from a place that sexes its chicks what are the chances that all three of those sexed chicks are male? Is that just incredibly unlucky? That's a 1/8 chance, even if it was just a 50% chance that I was getting a boy (nonsexed) but these are sexed so the chances of me getting a three boys in a row are from sexed chicks is...

Oh ok! Sorry I'm new so I don't know much besides what I get online. I guess I'm referring to the start of those feathers growing. They have feathers already in those spots so I don't know what to call them. As for the "ridge", I don't know the proper term, but I read in some forums that the back of the chickens feathering will develop different in males and females. Males will develop poorly at first and it will be a thin line (why I guess I called it a ridge). While...
Thank you so much, everybody, for your input! It's been so helpful. I'll keep watching them over the next few weeks to see what becomes of everyone and I'll definitely post more photos. I have a blog where I wrote a bit more and also had some more photos in case you were curious or wanted some other photos for sexing evidence: Urbanchook.wordpress.com Anyway, I'll update this page in another week or so with more photos!
Okay, I see what you're saying. Man, now I am maybe questioning if another chick I have is a male. Everything about the chick is female: demeanor, appearance, etc. but her comb is pretty pink. Really small and not at all raised, just pink.Here she is with the Aussie. She's a golden laced Wyandotte.
Would the smaller EE being crossed with a Phoenix make any difference for that, especially with the coloring and all? I agree though that it seems like a male, just reeeeally hoping for a female
