The pullet was hatched July 2011, so she is about 8 mon old. This bird has never developed a comb at all, but has always seemed healthy and grew. She is the bottom bird in the pecking order.
She has droopy looking eyes.
she has green dropping stuck to her backfeathers...
Yes I know I should do it myself. However, I have gotten in the habit of taking my young roosters and older hens to an Amishman to process for me. This allows me to hatch and raise more birds each year than I would do if I was processing all by myself. No, spouse and children will not assist...
I have more of a livestock than pet attitude regarding my chickens, but I was very sad to have to end my black Ameraucana rooster last night.
Sir Robin was named after the Monty Python version, because he was the bottom rooster in the grow out pen, and more than once "bravely ran away". He...

Our County Fair has the usual selection of large and bantam SOP breeds. It also has market classes: Roasters, Broilers and your own meat-type crosses. Broilers are described as 3 young birds, 2-5 pounds each, heavier is better as long as you do not go over or under the range. Uniform birds...
This morning we found a dead 3-month Ameraucana in the hut. All the hut-mates were fine, unconcerned, unafraid. There were no apparent injuries on the dead bird, and we had noticed no symptoms of disease. Nor evidence of mites, well-feathered. The bird seemed well fleshed (not crop bound or...
My eldest son and I are hatching Buckeye Roo over Delaware Hens as a Meat-Type, Sex-Link Production project for 4-H. I thought I would start a separate thread to track our progress, as there was some interest expressed in this cross.
The Delawares came from Sand Hill Preservation (2010 Hatch)...
We pature our birds in summer in an electronet enclosure with open-bottomed sliding shelters. Summer chicken chores are so easy. Slide the huts to a new spot, use the hose to fill the waterer, fill the feeders. Head count. Occassionally move the fence slightly an mow the fenceline, put the...

These are not girls for the show circuit, but should lay reasonably for you.
Raised on pasture and high protein chick feed.
I have a hen who is in the clutch creating stage, laying her eggs in a special spot in preparation for brooding them.
When she goes in the area the other hens are laying in, she attempts to destroy/eat the eggs.
Is she an egg eater, or is she exhibiting some kind of broody behavior related to...
My poor broody SS hen got tired of having her clutches destroyed by the local skunk.
She has decided the Cat's Litter Box in our garage is the best place for her to start a new clutch.
While I agree this nest site would be safer, the CAT is not amused.
I am experimenting with making a homeade incubator without a thermostat, using a light bulb and dimmer switch combination such as used successfully by speckled pullet.
In such a set up, it will be key that temps around the incubator do not change much, as I do not want to monkey with the dimmer...
Looking for hens and didn't see what you wanted? Want just a few hens, but the hatchery will only sell what you want in qtys of 25 and straight run?
My 4-Her's would love to raise those straight run chicks for you!
We can have the birds shipped to us, we'll brood them to the point where you...
We have lost an adult hen. Only the crop was eaten. No blood anywhere. Bird was in a pole shed. No tracks in snow around shed. We believe the bird died during daylight hours. The boy found the bird and called me. When I got there an hour later, he stated the body had been moved since he...
We want to get a Large Fowl Welsummer Rooster. We have one, but his behavior and some of his traits are not ones we want to repeat.
So do you have some extra cockerals or roos in good shape that aren't terribly vicious?
