our silver seabright bantam rooster seems to have a cold. this seems harmless, but he hasn't been eating . . . this rooster is not nice, and we have a developing replacement, but we don't want this one to go 6 ft. under. what should we do???
YEAAAAAAAH!!! the chicks we ordered in march finally shipped. . . but how we tell if we got a rooster or not? Our only experience with baby roosters was with a silver seabright roo, which has the same plumage as the hens. any ideas?
My family here in Chico need a home for a silver seabright rooster. I will be frank here, he is mean, tiny and has an issue with crossbite, but we have a new rooster on the way and would like to breed with him. please contact us any way you can.
kinda funny, last summer, we had the top of our pecking order die of heatstroke, everybody stopped laying.
last fall, a black sex-link (my avatar) died from a border collie attack, but because she was not high on the pecking order, no one cared but me
this is not uncommon, especially in younger chickens. make sure that the chickens have plenty of calcium, as that is what the shell is made of. if you have a dog, you should give him the egg, it will love it
