I know there are probably TONS of threads and articles out there about telling chicks apart, but I just figured I'd give you some of my advice! Have fun! to me the easiest way to tell the difference between the chicks is look at the size difference/ feathers. I'm going to teach you how to tell apart males and females here: Step 1: If you think you have a rooster on your hands you need to look at details. Does your rooster have any saddle feathers? saddle feathers will be growing at the...

Most likely, you'll get "lucky" and end up with a rooster(or three... don't ask :D ) out of a batch of chickens. Lots of folks won't be able to keep roosters because of their town's laws, but if you plan to keep a rooster as a pet or as part of your backyard flock, you'll need to do a few things. (Picture above: My Golden Campine rooster, [still pondering name ideas]King Speckle.) For anyone who wants to know, this is a MYTH: Roosters only crow in the morning. This is a myth, as I said...
Welcome to the article. Most likely if you clicked here, you're a new chicken person or you wanted to add something to this article. This article will be open to anyone who wants to edit and correct spelling or grammatical errors, or to add your "two cents" of inforomation. Many new chicken people wonder: Which breed is best? Each person has their differing opinion about breeds. BYC is an excellent resource for chicken breed and product reviews. The reviews are by people who've actually had...
If you have chickens, you eat eggs, you have a bunch of shells. What do you do with them? There are a few different ways to use your egg shells. Why not use every resource you can get from your girls? Egg-Eating Chickens I have a few girls that eat eggs. Naturally, people said "give them oyster shells". It wasn't so simple, though. My girls are picky eaters and the oyster shells turned out to be a waste of time and money (they wouldn't eat them). A friend suggested boiling the empty...
So, this will be my page introducing you to all my family's animals! Note that we never really decided on a farm name, but for me "Promised Land Farm" stuck, so that's what we will call our little place for now. A little background, I never planned to have chickens, ducks, and sheep. All I wanted to have were horses. That didn't quite go as planned though. :lol: Before anymore, my first animal was an outdoor cat (Snowball) we got when I was six. He only lived to be six years old when...
I am devoting myself to creating articles on topics that i have had problems finding answers for at the spur of the moment. I hope my articles are somewhat helpful to those new and old to chickens. Respiratory illness: In this article i am going to describe the lives of two of my girls. Both Silkie hens. Connie: "runt of the flock". Symptoms: mild sneezing every so often, bubbly eye in which she is blind. She has had these symptoms since she was a little chick. Debbie: " largest of my...
updated every Saturday.. 9/21/13 Weekly Update: The chickens were very good this week. I came up with a new an to feed scratch grain instead of just plain old scattering it out... First i get a tub of scratch grain... A big butter tub for the more chickens you have. and a smaller one for the smaller amounts of chickens. I love to feed them the scratch grain in the mornings so it keeps them busy all day through. One plan i use is to go around the run in a trail in different shapes instead of...
I understand there are a lot of articles out there on BYC for Chicken and poultry photography. I enjoy photography and maybe will someday be a photographer for equine or other animals. That is something undecided though.:) I decided to create this article to help teach about chicken and poultry photography. I used to have 5 ducks, but they are all gone now, so all I have to practice on are my good old chickens. Before my ducks died, I took many photos of them. I will share some of those...

Note: this is a supplement article to an article written by me, located HERE: [URL]https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/how-to-collect-clean-and-store-eggs[/URL] this article is written from my own knowledge. I am sure there are MANY different ways out there to clean wire egg baskets. This is how I clean mine (from dollar store) I used to keep my baskets just inside the coop and they got REALLY messy. Now I keep them in feed containers where the hens can't get to them. Although they are kept clean...
