    Is this a guinea egg??

    I know it’s off their usual season and she is rather young (5 months) but this egg isn’t like the others and up to today I only had 1 egg laying chicken. All the eggs I have are from the chicken but you can see how different this one is.

    What to do with the other chickens

    I’m not sure exactly when they were born I purchased them mid May from Tractor Supply and they were labeled as pullets. I’ve decided against using artificial lighting because my schedule isn’t consistent and I’m too poor for fancy timers and stuff lol

    What to do with the other chickens

    Oh I know he’s done it other times but this one is definitely a demand...he stands right below the window that overlooks the coop (my living room) and goes and goes until I go outside

    What to do with the other chickens

    I honestly thought Kung Fu was going to be the last of the hens to lay because she seemed to have developed slower (smaller build, smaller comb, and the comb didn’t turn red as quickly as the others)

    Rooster trouble

    Ok ya I can probably rearrange the roosts I’ve got 2 already they are level though maybe if I adjust one higher than the other 🤔 thank you I think he’s a handsome boy but also a big chicken no pun intended lol now that his adult feathers are growing in he’s getting a flowy look to him 😍 awkward...

    Rooster trouble

    Yes I bought them all on the same day....I got them some time in May and they came from the same container...I got them from tractor supply and they had some of their wing feathers in idk what you call that...basically they were already starting to loose that chick fluff on their wings I think...

    Rooster trouble

    For reference if it helps: this is Bertha (black) and Pony Boy (golden) the pic of Bertha is from September 9th and her comb has fully developed and turned red but it’s not as large as Pony Boy’s comb it looks more like the other hens.

    Rooster trouble

    All of the birds are the same age if I remember correctly they are about 5 months old. The coop is 6’ tall in the front and 4’ tall where the nesting boxes are it’s a slanted roof cuz we tend to get a lot of snow here. The roost poles are on the 6’ side of the coop so there is plenty of head...
