    Buff Orpington Laying Habits

    My buff Orpington just started laying (wooo!) she started around 18 weeks and is now 20 weeks old. She was laying cute little perfect eggs once a day but now she will go a day inbetween at random intervals. Is this normal? These are my first chickens so not sure what to expect! I’ve only had...

    Buff Orpington Roo?

    We ordered this bunch sexed from the hatchery but they threw in two “extras” for shipping and I’m wondering if Shirley is a he! All of their combs look about the same but hers is slightly redder and I see some waddles forming faster than the others. I don’t notice any difference in the leg...

    Air fresheners?

    Hi all, just got my first trio of baby ducklings and I am over the moon! Just was worried because since they are now in the house instead of the basement, where I originally planned, I’m worried about my air wick warmers harming the little girls. Are ducks as sensitive to them as other types of...

    Ready or not!

    Just got a phone call that my ducklings will be sent sooner than expected! This is my first time owning ducks, and I've been doing research for what seems like FOREVER, but it's finally happening! I have a trio of female Rouens on their way and should be arriving Friday. I already have some...
