    Rooster or Hen?

    Oh Crap! I can't have a rooster. This picture is from 2 weeks ago. I was so surprised to see this behavior......especially since I haven't heard any crowing. I'm still hoping someone will put me at ease and tell me it's a horny hen.

    I have heard lots of eggsongs from this 20 week old, never anything roosterish but today he/she grabbed my 1.5 year old BO by the back of the neck and pinned her down and my BO squatted. Now I am wondering if she's really a...

    Winter molt or being bullied?

    Thanks for the replies. Well it turns out she is molting. Bummer. I wasn't aware that it could happen in the middle of winter. I've added a small heat lamp to the coop and hopefully spring isn't too far off!

    At What Temperature Do You Start Closing up the Coop?

    The OP is asking about warmth, not predator control, and doesn't appear to need a lesson on what is "safe" for chickens. Thank you! I just had a chance to check in on the thread and saw it was taking a turn into a subject that I don't need advice for.

    At What Temperature Do You Start Closing up the Coop?

    Thanks for all the replies. I should have been more specific. By "closing up" I meant do you actually close the coop door every night. I am currently closing their window at night but still leaving coop door wide open. I have proper ventilation for them but was just concerned about a constant...
