    Help with rescue! Hen fell off truck on highway (probably bound for slaughter)

    Our family was driving home from Holiday world yesterday when we saw a chicken sitting on the side of the road! As we drove along looking for a place to turn around, we saw 8 more dead chickens along the road. She appears to be young and she's VERY heavy so I assume she was bound for slaughter...

    Light Brahma mix Cockeral - Decided to keep

    We have a light brahma mix cockerel looking for a new home. I am not certain if he is mixed with one of our easter eggers or a sussex because he looks just like his daddy. He was hatched out by a local kindergarten class and was the only boy. He was initially raised indoors with his sisters and...

    Unabsorbed yolk sack, I think - picture

    I have never had this happen before, but this poor chick struggled for over 24 hours to hatch and when it did it still had a little something protruding from the vent area. I am keeping it in the incubator because of some posts I read on here. Is there anything else I should be doing, or does...

    Need some good hatching vibes!!

    I am practically wearing a groove in my floor in front of my incubator. I took eggs from a broody to incubate in my incubator. I was unaware though of how far along they were and have been candling like crazy trying to figure it out. Last night I decided to move some to the hatching...

    Advice please... Candling on day 18

    I am uncertain when to lockdown my eggs. I know lockdown is day 18, however I am not certain how far along my eggs are. I am attempting to make an educated guess about their ages through candling. I have been using the pictures in the sticky as a guide, but I keep second guessing myself! I...

    Staggered hatch Questions

    Okay, so a couple of my hens went broody and that was fine I was willing to let them sit on eggs for a little while, but when I brought the eggs inside to be put in the incubator I realized that they had let the other hens continue to lay in the nesting boxes they were sitting in. So now I have...

    Need advice for long term care of crippled silkie *with picture

    Last spring I hatched out a silkie (still not sure on the gender, lol) named Blueberry. Blueberry was born with a couple of problems; she had a malformed foot, which I partially corrected with a corrective shoe, and a strange tick. Whenever Blueberry gets stressed her head twitches to the...

    Silkie chick with curled foot

    My four day old silkie chick has one curled foot. The other foot is perfectly fine. She can stand, walk, and run but when she does so she can't get traction and her leg just kinda slides out to the side. So she spends most of her time sitting. The brooder flooring is a towel over pine...

    Indianapolis - We just found a OEGB rooster

    So, my husband was driving home from work yesterday and saw a rooster in the grass in front of a business near our street. We tried to catch him on three separate occasions.

    Indianapolis Free cat

    Young black female cat free to a good home. She wandered into our crawlspace about two weeks ago and we have been unable to find her owners. She is very sweet and would make an excellent "lap kitty". She also has her claws so she would probably be a good mouser. We would love to keep her...

    Day 17 and I heard a peep Oh No!*updated*

    What should I do? We are supposed to go into lockdown tomorrow morning, and I was getting ready to candle tonight. Should I skip the candling and just crank up the humidity? Also I was going to put them into cartons to hatch. Is that out of the question now since they have orientated...

    This might be a silly question, but...

    This might be a silly question, but... If you breed a banty to a standard sized chicken do you have offspring that are likely to be bantam, standard, or somewhere in between? I'm sure this is genetics 101, but I'm really curious.
