    How to get your chickens to love you

    I just found this great video on YouTube. I have only one chicken I need to work on so this helped me learn what I can do. I thought I would share it for anyone new to chickens and want to hug your birds like me.

    Red comb

    Is it 100% guaranteed that a five week old chick with a red comb is definitely a male? Or is it possible that it can still grow into a hen?? I have three red combed easter Eggers. Their combs are not perfect so not a perfect three row pea comb so I’m hoping that they can still be girls. I’m...

    Every once in awhile someone will leave an absolutely perfect question or response. I think there should be like a gold star reaction or something for just such a comment or question. Just saying. 🌠

    Something unexpected happened.

    So I was watching a YouTube video of a guy massaging his chickens and they seemed to love it so I tried it on my chickens. They were not amused... but I wanted it to work so I tried it on a young bird while he was in the coop. I didn’t mean to but I must have hit a “spot” because he started...

    I might have too many roosters but im I’m attached to them. I know you need 10 hens for every rooster, I have 9 hens, 7 pullets , 1 rooster , 1 cockerel, and 9 chicks. I think four of the chicks are male though that would be 6 roosters. My question really is : if I give away some roosters What...

    First time in brooder!

    My five little Easter Eggers hatched. They didn’t dry well in the incubator because I don’t have a fan So I put them in a warm brooder with a soft stuffed animal To crawl under. The dog on the left loves babies so much she probably won’t leave their side.

    Mystery chicks

    I’ve posted this already once but got no response so I’m trying one more time. The colors that are coming out on their wings is throwing me off. TSC told me they were gold sexlinks but they have feathered feet And are tiny. My broody hen is caring for them she’s not their real mom though.
