    Anyone know what these chicks are?

    If they had yellow legs i would say Gold laced Wyandotte, but they aren't, possibly a Sebright.

    Winter weather preparations?

    It really all depends on the chicken, one of my flocks loves the snow, one flock dosen't really.

    No eggs for a week from a consistent layer

    Both of these are possible and even likley. Over the winter it is common to have a hen slow down or stop completely. Is she showing any signs of molting?

    In my experience Ostrich (yes, I said ostrich) is the best jerky ever. Expensive, but AMAZING.

    3 1/2 year old hen has trouble standing...

    Have you checked the bottoms of her feet for bumblefoot? A Brahma is a big breed and she could have hurt herself coming down from the roost.

    New additions

    Are they hens or drakes? I don't know how long you have had them but keep them separated for at least two weeks to make sure they don't transfer anything. I would put them in "see but don't touch" pens so they can learn of the others existence. I usually let them free range together for a bit...

    Unusually small egg

    What breeds do you have? A small egg is normal every once in a while.

    Chick Frustration! Whats My Next Step?

    As far as i know that will do nothing unless her living room is reaaaaly warm. We need pics to tell what is wrong because as MGG posted chickens don't get angel wing.

    DE will not kill mites, You need to use something like permetherin. you can find it at any feed store. Do a thorough clean of the coop and roosts to get rid of any others.

    Have you ever had hens kill each other?

    I've never had a fight to the death but probably would've had one without intervention. That was with roosters though, but i think it would be possible with hens. Another thing to think of is that sick hens will get beat up on, even to death.

    Looking for a rooster

    I would lock them up if possible so the hawks cant get to them at all, depending on how bold your hawks are you could do something as simple as a coat scarecrow to deter them.
