I have a few questions about my new chicken I bought as an adult! Am new to this
1.) Don't it look like a hen?? am pretty sure, but can I get an advice?? am assuming it is!
2.) the chicken looks like a White Leghorn, but what got me suspicious was the feathers, the legs, and the comb. I thought she was purebred, but I saw black spots with brown spots on its feathers. the legs are bright yellow (can that indicate her age?), also her comb is small, is it too small for her to be at laying age, I would guess she was born at least before winter, I thought I might've been because of the sunlight hours, but my friend has chicken also near me stating that her chickens were laying eggs for the past few weeks..could it be because of the rehoming. it has been 3 weeks I got her..
3.) I recently heard something like an egg song a few days ago, and when I went to go check there was nothing! it has been 4 days and no eggs. She didn't sing the egg song after that, no squatting also..
4.) I have only fed her table scraps like cooked rice and leftovers..i fed her crushed egg shell and scrambled eggs, for protein and calcium
