    My Silkie and Her eggs...But when?

    I have a black silkie bantam pullet and she is 5 months old. When do they start to lay? She hasnt shown any signs or even began to think of the idea of squatting.

    When do roos get certain types of feathers?

    I have a 6 week old and I posted 3 weeks ago to see if it was a roo at age 3 weeks.

He is an Andalusian mixed...

    Mello, non-aggressive roos

    What is the best chicken breed for a nice roo? I am currently trying to plan on what chicken breed to go with after my 5 yr old roo is gone. I have heard faverolles and Wyandottes are good? Anything else? Preferably not bantams, or just not tiny.

    Does anyone know a good place to advertise chickens?

    I cant find any, other than craigslist. I posted chickens for sale on craigslist for a month and a half and a bunch of people have been texting saying they want some, never come, never respond. Annoying.
