    I have 7 laying hens that give me beautiful large eggs. 3 months ago, one of my girls hatched out 4 chicks. The original chickens started laying at the normal age but all of a sudden I find 2 unusually small eggs. The smallest being found at the end of a poop deposit, so I am sure they are...

    Indecisive hen. What to do?

    My sweet Australorp, Molly, has been setting on eggs, BUT, I will see her in one nest box for a few days and then change to another box. Do I need to do something to keep her with the same eggs? I would appreciate some feedback! Thanks!

    Coop insulation concerns

    My husband built me a chicken tractor 17' long by 8' wide on metal H-Beams with a coop that is almost 3' above the ground on one end. He put 3 nesting boxes on the back, a cute window on each side and inside the run the coop has 2 doors that open up. A small door was the original opening...

    Dandruff or what?

    Good morning all. I am a first time chicken mom and really ignorant about a lot of stuff. I have a question about one of my girls. She looks like she has a little dandruff on her head and the feathers on her head look like they are thinning. I can't catch her & I don't see good up close and...
