    Buff Brahmas?

    Hi all. Just over a month ago I was in Tractor Supply and they had a nice lot of what was labeled Buff Brahmas. Since I had been trying to get my hands on some of these for awhile, I picked up six. Well, now a month later, I'm thinking they might not be Buff Brahmas. I'm far from an expert...

    Pullet or Roo? Anyone have a guess as to what breeds it may be mixed with?

    not sure how old it is. The person I got it from did have easter eggers. He had no idea what it was and didn't want it. It was so darn cute that even though I didn't really need any additional chickens, I couldn't help but take it. I named it Monet because of its beautiful coloring. I...

    Pullet or Roo? Anyone have a guess as to what breeds it may be mixed with?

    Yeah, I figured I would need better pics. It was hard to get close up. My daughter and her friend are into photography and are supposed to do some picture taking today. I'll have them get up close and then I'll post them. Thanks.

    Pullet or Roo? Anyone have a guess as to what breeds it may be mixed with?

    Hi all. I picked up this little beauty about a month ago when I bought a few hens. The person I bought them from wasn't sure what it was mixed with but said it was definitely a pullet. Now that it has grown a bit I'm convinced it's a Roo. Can anybody confirm if it's a pullet or roo? Also...

    Problem with birds jumping fence

    We only clipped one side. I appreciate the input. I'll look into trying to extend the fence. Not sure I'll be able to right away. I'll also look into the weed eater string idea. Thanks all.

    Problem with birds jumping fence

    HI all. I have come here asking for help with this same issue and received some helpful advice. My chickens are jumping over our chain link fence and going into the neighbors yard. I have clipped their wings, which worked for a short period of time. I have some barbed wire running across the...

    New construction-how to decide who goes where

    Hi all. I just finished converting one of my sheds into two separate runs for my flock. I want one side to be for breeding. I put the two hens and rooster that I want to breed in the new run. Should I let the others just decide who is going to go into the other side of the new construction...

    Chickens going over fence

    Thank you all very much for the advice. Mission accomplished. The wife and I went out this morning and had them all clipped in less than 5 min. We have 13 birds, three of them had already been clipped from their previous owner. It was much easier than I thought. I just hope it keeps them...

    Chickens going over fence

    Hi all. Today a few of my chickens started to hop up and over my chain link fence and into the back yard and into the neighbors yard. Once they were over the other side they didn't seem to know how to get back and they started to panic. I opened up the gate and one of them came right in...

    So bummed!

    Well, today our new black Australorp laid her first egg. We watched her as she laid it right under the tree in front of our window. We were so excited. As soon as she was done we went to collect it, but by the time we got to her she had broke it and started eating it. I immediately took the...

    What are the 2 brown ones in the back?

    Welcome sunflower, those are some beautiful chicks you have there. I'm curious to know what the other ones are. Keep us posted. I've become addicted to chickens. The wife and I are already plotting out our new coop. We are going to take one of our sheds that has an open front and divide it...

    Still not sure about this one????

    Here's another one in question... It's much younger than our other chickens. The pictures aren't that great but maybe some of you 'egg'sperts can tell

    Still not sure about this one????

    Still not sure about the one standing in front. The back is definitely a rooster since it has been crowing everyday for the past week! It is also trying to get at the hens. This other (in front) supposedly the same age still has us puzzled. Its tail and saddle feathers point towards cockerel...
