    Pale comb, blood, lethargy. Help?

    Hi, I've just noticed that my bantam welsummer hen is acting a little strange. She isn't going for any food or mealworms and her comb is very faded. I noticed a little blood on her feet and neck but after wiping her down I couldn't find any clear sign of an actual wound. The other chickens seem...

    Liege Fighter hens as good as roos?

    Although I have a wonderfully helpful family of crows nearby, my yard still seems to receive routine visits from hawks. I keep only bantam hens, so they're a bite-sized snack that's especially tempting. For this reason, I've never felt comfortable letting my girls free-range. I've heard that...

    ISO bantam australorp chicks (or eggs)

    I have been searching the forums as well as looking for breeders on google, but no luck finding bantam australorp chicks. (Or even hatching eggs!) I know they exist, and I'm looking to buy 5 or 6 and hopefully put them in with the other bantam chicks I'm already expecting in mid July. Does...

    Egg color genetics?

    I have a newbie question about hatching eggs. Does the color of the eggs guarentee the color that chick will grow up to lay herself. For example, if I pick only the darkest brown eggs out of a selection of two dozen marans eggs, would those chickens lay very good dark brown eggs? Another...

So much so that when I finally decided to stop renting and take the big leap into owning a home, the backyard...
