    Sick hen

    Unfortunately, she did not make it. We had brought her inside, and made her comfortable. We have a devastated 7 year old. This is the first hen we have lost in 5 years of having hens.

    Sick hen

    Unfortunately, we aren't able to be home. We did the best examination we could before we had to leave. I just wanted to make her as comfortable as possible. And talked to our girls about the possible outcome

    Sick hen

    This morning my husband went to check on our hens and eggs, and one of our Silver Laced Wyandotte was laying by the door, very lethargic. It looks like the other hens have been pecking her quite a bit as well. She has a patch of back feathers missing and the top of her comb is bloody. She opens...

    How often will I get eggs?

    Welcome! And like everyone has mentioned, it all depends on the breeds you have. I feel the happier my girls are, the more eggs we get

    When to let 6 week old girls and 4 week old girls stay together permanently

    They were in separate brooders but spent the days outside, in the pen. They have been doing so well together now that they are in the same brooder. Next step, is getting our flock to accept our 13 new comers into the coop

    When to let 6 week old girls and 4 week old girls stay together permanently

    We did the look no touch for a few days, and now are on day 3 of hanging out all together. They are getting along pretty well for the most part. A tiff here, a peck here. But I would like to get the together permanently so they can get established and then slowly introduce this crew to our older...

    Can't figure out which pullets are which breed. Any thoughts?

    That's what I thought. I guess time may tell, but who knows. I have tried to research them more, but I am having a hard time finding information on either. Thank you! We also have 3 Ameraucana's and 2 Silver Laced Wyandotte's the same age as these 4 ladies. Ordered 8 and got 9 ‍♀️

    Can't figure out which pullets are which breed. Any thoughts?

    2 are Prairie Bluebell Eggers and 2 are Sapphire Gems. I just don't know which one is which. Anyone familiar with either breed?

    Hello from MN

    Thank you!! I was thinking that may be the way. We have had a few warm days, so I brought the 5 week old girls out and put them in a secured, enclosed area with our older hens wondering around. But I would like to get the 3 week old chicks and 5 week old chicks together. Would that be a wise...
