    10 week barred rock turning out to be a pullet?

    Hi everyone! I wanted to post on here and let you all know that despite my barred rock showing some rooster-like characteristics, she ended up being a hen! She definitely has the largest comb of our flock but we are getting lots of beautiful eggs from her now. Here’s a pic I took today of her...

    Can egg color vary day-to-day?

    I got her from a local feed store. I’m not sure which hatchery they use but since she has a pea comb and what I thought was the typical look of an OE, I never questioned if she was actually an OE. Thank you everyone for your feedback too! These are the last two eggs she’s laid so this girl is...

    Can egg color vary day-to-day?

    Hi everyone! I have an egg mystery I’d love your advice on! We finally got our first eggs this past week (yay!) and I am pretty sure it’s our olive egger laying the eggs as she’s the only one that we’ve noticed going in the nesting boxes. It looks like she’s not a green egg layer (which I know...

    Worms in stool?

    Hi everyone! I am new to raising chickens and have my first health question for y’all! I have a flock of six chickens around 13-20 weeks, and today I noticed one of their stools looked like it could either have worms or be shedding it’s intestinal lining. The chickens seem to otherwise be in...

    9 week Easter Egger - pullet disguised as a roo?

    ...and we have pointed saddle feathers now 😥 I think that makes this one 100% roo, right?

    9 week Easter Egger - pullet disguised as a roo?

    Hi friends! I have been working through a tough situation and would love your advice. We have a 9 week EE “pullet” that I’m convinced is a roo (and everyone I show him to agrees!). He’s got a pronounced pea comb, the red splotched shoulders, long tail feathers, and the brave/assertive...

    Have two chicks to integrate w flock soon but one may be a roo

    Yup, that’s been the consensus with everyone who’s seen him unfortunately. I appreciated the breeder’s advice but am still feeling like I need to address this issue from the mindset that our EE is a boy. We are new to chickens and are just not experienced enough to consider keeping a rooster. So...

    Have two chicks to integrate w flock soon but one may be a roo

    Hello everyone! I asked this on the “guess what gender” thread that I started for my suspected roo Easter egger chick but I thought my follow-up question warrants it’s own thread here. So I have a 6-week Easter Egger that I’m 99% sure is going to end up being a rooster (comb reddening, red...

    4-week EE developing comb early

    So of course, this little guy/gal started developing the trademark red splotches on their shoulders this week! I just reached out to the breeder for advice on if I should rehome this one and try to get another pullet similar in age (I also have a salmon favorelle that’s the same age so I don’t...

    Pullet or Cockerel? 5 1/2 Week Old EE’s - SEE UPDATED PHOTOS

    I’m totally new with EEs but I have a suspected roo myself with my 4-week EE so I’ve been researching a lot about EEs and genders! First off, your EEs are gorgeous! I’ve never heard of a snowy EE but now I might need to eventually add one to my own flock! So the color of the comb says cockerel...

    4-week EE developing comb early

    Ya the comb is what worries me! And she’s also pretty fiesty! We just introduced them to our older flock that’s five weeks older and she tried to stand up to one of the big chicks! Definitely has the confidence of a roo too 😭 The only EE roo trait that I can’t tell if “she” is exhibiting right...

    4-week EE developing comb early

    Thank you for providing your experience and the pics are super helpful! This is my first EE so I was curious to know if others have had EEs with combs like mine at 4-weeks. I’m really hoping she’s a pullet so we can get some colorful eggs but it wouldn’t be the end of the world if she’s a roo as...

    4-week EE developing comb early

    Hello again! I have a soon-to-be four week old Easter Egger whose comb has started to rapidly develop. She’s definitely a bit more fiesty than her salmon faverolle roommate too. I believe she has a pea comb, and I am seeing three clear rows that are already starting to pink, which I’ve read are...

    3-week old salmon faverolle - any guesses?

    I always love posting on this thread about gender guesses so I’ve got another one for y’all! I have a three week salmon faverolle pullet from Cackle Hatchery whose feathers are growing in a medium reddish brown. I’ve heard that salmon faverolle hatchery chicks can run the gambit with coloring so...

    10 week barred rock turning out to be a pullet?

    Thank you both for your feedback! I’m new to chickens and she’s my only BR so it was hard to figure out what to look for aside from coloring and her comb. This one definitely had me on the fence for quite some time!
