    Pretty pullets with little hats and muffs...any breed ideas?

    We got these girls from a local farm, so no idea on breed (mix I'm guessing) or egg color. I don't think they are laying yet but I'm not 100% sure as I don't know what to look for. What do you think? Thank you!!

    4.5 month production red rooster agressive toward daughter and me

    Chickens have worms - eggs ok to eat prior to treatment?

    Hi! One or more of our eight hens have worms as we found the little white (tapeworms, I believe) in some poo. We treated them today, but have a couple dozen eggs we have collected over the last week or so that they laid before we knew of the worms. We are not going to eat the eggs for several...
