    Silkie cockerels - northeastern MA

    My son and I found 3 dumped silkie cockerels yesterday. We couldn't leave them to be eaten by the local wildlife so we brought them home. At first I thought they were black, but they look like they are more of a dark blue. They are well behaved, as we were able to walk up to them, pick them up...

    Kosher Kings vs Red Ranger males vs Freedom Ranger Color Yield

    I've raised Freedom Rangers in the past and have been happy with the results. Since then they have added new meat bird options. I was curious if anyone wanted to post their experiences with Kosher Kings, or Freedom Ranger's Red Ranger males or Color Yield hybrids.

    Freedom Ranger Kosher Kings

    So has anyone tried these? Are they any different from the red Rangers, in terms of temperament or maturity? Meyer also sells them as Grey Rangers. Any input on those?

    I am posting this for a friend. She has a young Muscovy drake that was dumped at her farm. He is mostly white with grey wing and tail tips and light eyes.

    4-5 month old Faverolles pullets- eastern MA

    I have 8-10 hatchery quality Faverolles pullets available. They are close to 5 months old. I got them as chicks to keep a singleton company. While they are not stellar examples of the breed (small, with some dark patches) they are definitely pullets with the typical Faverolles personality. Local...

    At what age do Khaki Campbell drakes mature?

    We've had chickens for years, and this spring we decided to try some ducks. We got 4 straight run Khaki Campbells from a local feed store. They are 7 weeks old now. As luck would have it 3 of them are drakes. I did order sexed assorted ducklings from Metzer , and they arrived last week...

    Marti's Poultry Farm

    Enough people had posted positively here about their Leghorn strain (Missouri super egg machine) so I bookmarked their page for ordering next year. Now I am unable to access their homepage. Are they still in business? Or is the site just down for the off season?

    yet another cockerel vs pullet ratio question

    Okay, so I know the hen determines the gender of the chicks. This year my LF hens gave me 3 cockerel chicks for every 1 pullet chick. Does this ratio remain constant throughout the hen's lifetime, or does it vary from year to year (or even season to season)?

    Coronation Sussex flock - One rooster, 4 hens

    I need to make some space for a project, so I am selling half of my Coronations. One rooster and 4 hens, all 2010 hatch. The girls are laying fairly regularly now. The roo has some minor frostbite damage on the back of his comb. These are large, heavy birds so shipping isn't feasable for the...

    5 month old pair Coronation Sussex

    I have a 5 month old pair of Coronation Sussex for auction. I have a couple of extra roos I think are too nice to wind up as dinner, and a few extra pullets I can pair with them. I would prefer local pick up due to the heat over most of the country, but could hold them for later shipping with a...

    fair price for a pair of 3 month old Bourbon Reds?

    I have someone interested in a pair of my Bourbon Reds, but I have no idea what a fair price for them is. I know in this area day-week old MW poults were going for $10-12 earlier this spring. These guys are about 3 months old now. Here are a couple pics of them.

    Processors in NE MA/southern NH

    Are there any processors in northeastern MA or southern NH that will do small batches of birds? I have maybe 6-10 roos I would like to have processed, but I can't do it myself just yet. I'll have a larger group of roos and maybe pullets come fall, plus a turkey or 2 that will need to be done too.

    Genetics Question : lavender columbian x black = yellow chicks?

    I crossed my Coronation Sussex roo with 3 black faverolles hens. I hatched out the first F1s yesterday. Three of the chicks are black, like I expected, but 2 are yellow. One has a few black dots on it's head. Does this mean at least one of my black hens is recessive for wheaten? How will these...
