    Azure Blue trying to hold on to the homestead record

    June at 6 months has been a pretty hefty layer since she started popping these lovely blue eggs out in August. There's been a couple of double yolks, which is always an interesting sight. Two of my Royal Palm turkeys have started laying this week, these are about the size of the other pullets...

    Someone dropped of a rooster. Now what?

    Someone thought it would be funny to put a rooster in a guys truck as a joke. Not knowing where to bring him, the prank victim brought him to me and said if I didnt take him he'd just let him loose on the side of the road. I do not want another rooster, I don't want the 10 I already have. So now...

    Can anyone confirm Angel Wing before treatment please?

    Hi new duck momma here, I have 9 6 week old ducklings, some are Pekings, some are Indian Runners, most are crosses I believe. It's been an absolute joy!! These two have a wing each that seemed "heavy" about a week ago. It's gotten much better, but I'm concerned that my chicken egg (long story)...

    Malines? Pullet?

    Hi this is 12 week old Bertha, or was, now I'm not so sure. I feel like her comb and wattles have really deepened in color lately, especially compared to the Azure Blue pullet beside her in the first pic!! I think this is a cuckoo Malines but would really like confirmation if possible. Thanks...

    Broken beak

    Bertha broke her beak today! In a matter of a few hours she went from being totally ok to this. There was nothing hanging off in order to do a repair. The blood is extremely fresh, almost as if it happened just before I walked in the door. I currently have her isolated in a dog crate in the...

    Can anyone confirm these guys are, well guys??

    These guys are 11 weeks old and a barnyard mix (I have no clue what the rose comb fellas are) just want to confirm they're cockerels before making any final decisions about who stays and who goes. Of my suspected 10-12 boys only one is crowing, so I'm going purely on visual and behavior at this...

    How do you choose who stays and who goes?

    Hi!! My journey started a few months ago, I have 6 royal palm turkeys, 25 chickens and 9 ducklings in the brooder. Because chicken math I obviously have way more feathered friends than I intended and boy do they grow fast!! I'm still in pretty good shape as far as space goes but a lack of...
