    In the city of Citrus Heights, CA the current city code says that (basically) in the city you can only have chickens (up to 10) if your lot is over 10,000 square feet. Mine is a little short of this, and on Feb 3rd I received a code violation notice. It said that I had until Feb 10th (less...

    Mystery - from the assorted bantam bin

    I got these 3 from the feed store's assorted bantam bin. I've tried to figure them out, and have some guesses, but I'm not sure. #1 #2 I was thinking Silkie at first, but only has 4 toes, a straight comb, and the feathering doesn't look Silkie. This one is the smallest...

    Not sure on this this one... Thinking Salmon Favorolle?

    This is my "mystery chick". I'm thinking Salmon Favorolle, roo. What do you guys think? He got a pretty nasty wound between his shoulder blades at 1 1/2 weeks old, so the purple is from the blue kote. He seems to be feathering really slow, he'll be 4 weeks old on monday.

    Amereucana's, or just EE's

    So, I picked up these little fluff balls at the feed store the other day. At the feed store they said they were "real Amereucana's". Can anyone verify that for me? How can you tell the difference? #1 #2

    Hurt Chick (*warning Graphic Pic*) -- Can she recover from this?

    I have a 1 1/2 week old "mystery chick" I put with my broody hen (she already had 3 chicks, and seemed fine with the new one yesterday).

    How many chicks is too many- for mama Silkie
