    White straw like in crest hair follicle

    That makes me feel better. They are about 6 months old. I was hoping it wasn’t lice or mites.

    White straw like in crest hair follicle

    So today when I was letting the crew out I noticed white on two of the chickens crowns. It was like a straw over hair follicles. Never seen it and it’s on 2 which I believe are cockerels. Picture doesn’t do much justice but it’s honestly like a little straw over individual pieces of hair. I...

    Me again, back with my silkies. 14 weeks

    Thanks! I thought Stitch and Gizmo both were cockerels, Nalas personality has had me wondering lately.

    Me again, back with my silkies. 14 weeks

    Thanks! I feel better. I watch them a lot during the day but it honestly seems like when she doesn’t know I’m there she bullies them. So I’ve been keeping them in a Great Dane crate in the coop at night.

    Me again, back with my silkies. 14 weeks

    So they have been in the big coop for 2 weeks but still go in the crate at night because Nala, one of the older silkies (5 1/2 months) still picks on them some during the day. (Is is normal for one to not take to the new flock?) Anyway,

    Thanks! Our first flock we got were all hens so I’d feed them, get them in at night, ya know the basics. But ever since I started getting chicks and raising them I am 100x more involved. My husband laughs because I talk to them, talk about them, call them all by name and always have a story of...

    Yay! She does eat it! All my chickens like lettuce. I’ll hang a head of lettuce for them and they demolish it haha

    We still have them in the empty coop but they’ve been free ranging well with the Muscovies. I often give the Muscovies lettuce or shredded carrots. Should I not give them any when she’s out with them?

    Thank you! They’re currently on purina start and grow crumbles and she does seem to eat more than the other two but still stopped eating better the food was gone. They haven’t had treats yet and get to free range during.

    I’m pretty sure they were bought from tractor supply with no means of proper housing/care so they ended up with us now that the weather is getting colder. So with it being a meat bird, can’t we still just keep her as part of the flock?

    So we’ve kinda become a chicken safe house 🤣 I’ve taken a love for chickens even more since raising my first chicks this past summer. Well I guess that means anytime someone can not care for their chickens they ask me if I have room for them. Most of the time I say YES! Unless we already have...

    Silkies, 2 months now. Any guesses?

    My guess is usually Elsa and Rapunzel are pullets, Gizmo and Stitch are cockerels, then Leo has me going back and forth daily. I’m just sad cuz I have one rooster now and we always had two that got along just fine but two roosters is my limit. I want to keep Stitch since he’s our only frizzle...

    Silkies, 2 months now. Any guesses?

    Thanks! Yes. I have 6 month old silkies in the coop I still sometimes question haha I’m so impatient 🤣 I am like 99% sure Gizmo is a cockerel because he is so curious end friendly. He is the only one that will willingly hop up on our hands to be cuddled.

    Silkies, 2 months now. Any guesses?

    As they get older I get more confused 🤣 I’m really just hoping they aren’t all cockerels. They will also be making their move to the coop this week to meet their new friends! some of them are less cooperative than others haha

    Check out my chick poo please. (Diarrhea)

    She is a RIR. She’s the sweetest too! I love watching them. Every single time I change their puppy pads I walk away and come back and it looks like someone dumped out the food so I stayed and watched, and I found my Olive Egger can empty a feeder in seconds with her beak. I’ve tried ways to...
