    Leg injury from mating

    I went out a little while ago to make sure the chickens were getting ready to head to the coop for the night. All were fine. My EE Rooster decided to catch my 5 1/2 mo. old Tetra Tint pullet and mate with her on the concrete driveway. He stood on her for a few seconds afterwards. When she got...

    To be, or not to be...Broody?

    I have an 11 1/2 month old EE hen that is sitting on todays clutch of eggs. I get about 8-10 eggs per day, all laid in the same nest. This isn't the first time she's done this. She does it pretty often. When I go out to open the run and let them out, she'll go out with the others. That's when I...

    Sudden death, fighting or something else?

    Here we go again. I'm out of town for a few days and my son is chicken sitting. All was fine when I left yesterday afternoon, as well as earlier today. My son went outside to find one of my young, but huge roosters dead in a heap of his own feathers. Most missing were from his back. He didn't...

    PeeWee is sick! UPDATE..FINAL Necropsy Results Page 6

    Good morning. I have a nine month old frizzle roo. For the last two days I've been trying to treat him for a runny, swollen eye. Just one of them. He's been very standoffish for a couple of days. I figured my EE Rooster might have pecked him in the eye. He's been showing his authority with...

    Um, Broody Roo?!? LOL

    I went outside a little while ago to collect eggs from a couple of late morning layers today and found my little frizzle Roo sitting on my EE's blue egg. He wouldn't budge for a while, so I snapped a couple of pictures of him doing this. He got up once to turn around and roll it around so I...

    What are these Bantys??

    I was at Tractor Supply yesterday and there were two little banties all alone in the big tub! I was buying some RIR so I went ahead and bought the banties. The sign said Straight Run Assorted Bantams. I have no idea what they are, so I was hoping you fine people here could help me! They're so...

    Wowzers!!

    My EE pullet just started laying eggs on Feb. 15th. She's laid a total of 8 so far. She took a little break for about a week because she got bullied by an older hen and I had to take care of some injuries. She started laying again on Monday. They've all been pullet sized eggs, until now. This...

    Pullet injured by hen. Swollen eyes now runny. Crusty nostril (PICS Added)

    I've got another thread going about the behavior of my hen that injured my pullet.(https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/630261/older-hen-flogs-pullet-for-submitting-to-roo) But now I need medical advice for my pullet. A few days ago I noticed my hen pecked the "you know what" out of my pullet...

    Older Hen Flogs Pullet for Submitting to Roo

    I have an older hen that will not squat for their Roo. She squawks, puts up a fight and runs away. On the other hand, I have a newly matured EE pullet that just started laying this week. She was squatting for a couple of weeks before that. She is very quiet and will squat for the Roo when he...

    If eggs left in nest, will hen go broody?

    I have a hen that has been laying pretty green eggs for a few months now. I gather them quickly every day. Recently my EE rooster has matured and I've caught him covering her on several occasions. Typically, when she lays an egg and I collect it, it is fairly cool to the touch, so I know she's...

    Hen Died :(

    Happy New Year everyone! Yesterday morning when I let my chickens out, I noticed one of my 2 layers not acting herself. "Little Mama" is what I called her. She and "Big Mama" are a pair of hens that are a few months older than my chicks that I acquired as day olds in August. Big Mama and...

    What age to de-worm?

    My chickens (EE's) are approximately 3 months old. They are a pretty good size, but they still have their juvenile "peeps". I was wondering when is a good age to start preventative de-worming? I don't have any issues with them, (knock on wood), but I would like to stay ahead of any issues that...

    So funny!!

    So, being the day before Thanksgiving, I'm doing a lot of cooking today. My chickens don't have an enclosed run, yet.. so when I let them out, I sit out there with them for sometimes hours on end. It's sometimes difficult to lure 8 chickens to the coop when I need to go in. Well, by accident...

    What are these hens?

    My son wanted to add a couple of chickens to our flock, that are already laying. We went to the place that he normally buys his baby chicks, and found these two girls. The guy said they are laying blue eggs. I have 5 EE's already that aren't old enough to lay eggs yet. All multi colored, with...

    Hello from Kentucky!

    Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm new to this chicken thing, so I don't know much. I have 6 chickens. Not sure what they are. One is some sort of Cochin. Looks like a feather duster, lol. The others I believe are Easter Eggers. I think I ended up with more Roosters than Hens, so I'm trying to...

    Need help with what sex these are!!

    I have no idea what sex these chickens are. This picture is all I have at this moment and can get more tomorrow. The black cochin is crowing, so I know he's a roo. He was hatched around August 25th. The others were hatched about a week or two later. Any help/guesses would be greatly appreciated...
