    This little girl is about 6 months old. Any guesses as to what she is? I actually have two, both hens.

    Air cell

    One of my 19 day old eggs quit, so I opened it up to see what happened. I gently removed the cap off the air cell first and checked for movement, as advised on this website. The poor little chick was dead. My question is, the air cell membrane on the chick side was kinda sucked in towards the...

    Springfield PreciseTemp Thermo/Hygro

    Just a bit of info for people new to incubating, like myself. While the cheap Wal-Mart "Springfield PreciseTemp Digital Thermometer/Hygrometer" seems appealing, it must be calibrated first.

    Going broody or normal?

    Pheonix, OEG, unsure.

    I picked these two up from the local feed store when they were chicks, and it's still a mystery to me what they are. At first I was thinking phoenix, but then I saw the silver duckwing OEG, and now I'm kind of at a loss. Any ideas? Sorry for the pics being blurry, they wouldn't sit still long...

    Japanese Bantams

    Hi everyone. I'm new to Japanese bantams and am unsure of their gender. I've seen both roos and hens with combs. Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm about 100% this is a roo. Unsure about this one.

    Merging Silkies

    Hi, I have a couple of silkies I am going looking to be introducing into my flock. It's a small flock I just started, 8 birds. I was going to cage them separate in the same pen for a while just to get them acquainted. I was told that I shouldn't mix them because it's likely the others would...
