I've googled "taming chick" stuff, and followed some of the recommended things, like reaching from...

    Hmm one of my chicks...

    One of my chicks, that's supposed to be a hen is about twice the size of my other easter eggers. She's also solid brown. She doesn't look like the others to me, at all. And she's bigger than the "roosters" too.. I mean, granted they are still little right now... but watching "her" - it makes me...

    Chicks 4 weeks apart?

    Our room upstairs reaches temps of 80-90 with AC during the daytime, we only use the heatlamp at night with AC on, or we would roast the chickens. (we had the heat lamp temps reach 117 before we figured out to just turn the darn thing off 90% of the time. LOL) Anyways, I'm moving the older...

    It's probably been asked before - but when do you recommend

    Taking eggs and putting them in an incubator after chickens start laying eggs? My daughter's so excited to try out her incubator, I was going to let her keep 4-6 eggs to give it a shot. We are working on filling up our "30" egg carton in the fridge and I'd like to let her keep a few. I told her...

    Raising our first batch. (A kid's journey)

    MY 5 year old can't type yet, so I'll be typing for her, but she's looked through the threads with me and was really excited to participate and have her own thread for her first batch of easter egger chicks. We got "5" hens (we got an extra, so 6 total) and 2 roo's from Cackle Hatchery...

    New here!

    My kids are obsessed with chickens, so we agreed to let them become "mini chicken farmers" they do most of the work (they are currently 12, 5, and 2, our 4 month old is to young to help haha!) We built our own coop, and the chickens live with our goats to reduce the chance of predators. Our...

    Roosters dying?

    So - I know it's not "my yard" and the only thing I can come up with, is the layer feed had too much calcium and killed my roosters. A friend raised a batch of chickens. Gave us half, we ended up with 4 roosters. One by one, my roosters all died. Except 1. I'm going to be switching their feed...
