    Anyone know what breed this white pullet is?

    I was going to say the same. She looks just like our Easter Egger, Daisy. 💕

    I'm so sorry to hear this. It is hard to lose one of your flock.

    Fluffy Butt Acres: Stories of our flock

    Thank you. It is just nice to read about others’ flocks and know this is a place they’re loved and valued for just being chickens. They’re so smart and fun. Raven was our most curious and adventurous of the flock. She loved my 14 year old. They had a very special bond - from the time she...

    Fluffy Butt Acres: Stories of our flock

    I know this happened months ago, but I'm still catching up. I am sooo sorry you lost your precious Maleficent. I know you are heartbroken. We just lost our Raven to a sudden death. She had a seizure and was gone. That was what brought me back to your group here- I needed chicken therapy...

    I love the very end- "OH NONONONO.." :) That would be me too.

    Lethargic Pullet

    It truly was touch and go for days. We almost lost her. So she’s definitely not out of the woods. The poo does look odd. I know Alice’s was strange too sometimes pure water sometimes not. We never knew what we’d see. It would be good to know what caused her back up. It could be worms or...

    How do I get my flock to move in to their new hen house?

    We put a light inside ours- when it started to get dark they went inside where the light was. We only had 1-2 a night the first couple nights we had to go get and put inside. Once they were inside we turned off the light. They were “home” in less than a week.

    Lethargic Pullet

    If her crop was hard in the morning it probably was an impacted crop. It may take her a few days to rebound. I had 1 in our house for a week before she was back to herself. We put a little bit of honey in her water to get her something that would give her a little more energy. Also gave her...

    Thank you. We will try the dewormer and hope it is not too late.

    Pale comb, listless hen

    We have a 7 month old hen who started with a pale comb over the weekend. She was our 1st layer so I thought she may be ready to molt and just getting pale comb from that. The weather has been cold at night and hot during the day. Up until today she was pecking and scratching and eating like...

    I scared my chickens

    Our girls LOVE scrambled eggs. They're high in protein and they will just about mow each other over to get some. Try introducing some- they will go NUTS! :) They know who cares for them. They'll get over it.

    Rooster or Hen?

    I agree with the others. For a 2 month old those are some impressive tail feathers. Looks like a roo to me.

    Fluffy Butt Acres: Stories of our flock

    Thank you. We LOVE our girls. Heizel got her name (1st part) from HeiHei on Moana. She has not been the brightest of the girls and I thought for sure we’d find her one morning dead from doing something dumb. 🤣 She fell asleep in the waterer - TWICE as a tiny. Then fell into the round feeder...
