    Easter Egger Sexing Help - 10 week update - still need help with Piglet!

    Hello wonderful BYC people! I'm still uncertain about Piglet's gender, and I thought I'd post a 10 week update. I was able to get the more obvious cockerel, Bacon, rehomed to a nice family in the country. Piglet still doesn't have the prominent comb that Bacon had, and the coloring on wings is...

    It finally stopped raining! As requested side shots as best as I could get of the chickems. Is it a little more obvious now? What are we looking for? Toast Hamhock Piglet Bacon

    Easter Egger Sexing Help - 8 week update

    Oh really? I knew I read this somewhere about female specific feather patterns, but I couldn't find it again! If it could stop raining in Florida for 2 seconds, I could try to get some good side standing shots for y'all. I agree with you totally! Piglet is the only one I am still like, huh...

    Easter Egger Sexing Help - 8 week update

    I can definitely try tomorrow if there's no rain. Teach me -- what are you looking for from a side view? Today was a huge success with ALL of them willing to be picked up and somewhat pose. I have them getting used to posing with a corn cob lure on a chair. Now to pose and PIVOT!

    Easter Egger Sexing Help - 8 week update

    I posted my flock a few weeks ago, at 5 weeks (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/easter-egger-sexing-help-5-weeks.1310643/) wondering if at 8 weeks it is any clearer to the BYC community on what sex these easter egger chickens are becoming! We are in process of building our flock of 6 a...

    Review by 'corgis-con-chickems' in article 'Chicken Treat Chart—the Best Treats for Backyard Chickens'

    It's a great list, but perhaps foods can be added for a more comprehensive reference (and maybe in a PDF that can be printed/ posted on the fridge). If anyone else keeps a garden going... these are some chicken treats that I'd add to the list... Our flock absolutely goes NUTS for fennel...

    Easter Egger Sexing Help - 5 weeks

    I'm totally new to the chicken thing, and have wanted them for many, many years. So I have been taking photos of my 4 easter eggers and 2 brahmas every week. The brahmas were listed as pullets and the EEs were straight runs. I'm curious as to how they would grow and take on new colors since this...

    island chicken mama - new to BYC!

    I've always wanted chickens and this year we decided to take the chicken leap. My boo had chickens when he was younger, so he's been a good source of help. But I'm here because I could always use some more advice! We have 4 easter eggers and 2 brahma bantams (I think... they have fluffy feets)...
