    I really know nothing about Marans, but I like the first bird best.

    Cochin hen or rooster???

    Agree with the others, a brahma cockerel. You can tell by the saddle and hackle feathers he has, those are long and pointy. Only males will have these, on females they will be short and rounded.

    Do you think this is a rooster?

    Pullet, the males look completely different.

    Any guesses on breeds? 13 weeks

    My guesses, the blue looks to have marans in it, the brown silkie mix and the last maybe game mix.

    Dubia worms?

    I raise dubia roaches but have never heard of dubia worms. Google didn't show anything either. Can you post a picture of these worms please, I'm really curious of what they are.

    Laws on selling poultry meat for pets/captive carnivorous animals?

    I wonder if you'd still need it to be done in a USDA facility if you were to sell whole birds for either reptiles or raw feeders(cats, dogs, ferrets). Many people who raw feed would take whole intact animals.

    Can you help identify her.

    EE, they aren't a breed though. More of a type. They can look like anything and lay any color egg. Though they normally lay blue or green eggs.

    Homemade feed: what portion of each ingredient

    I'm going to assume that most of these chickens had a large area to range over. More access to bugs and other natural foods. Birds had more land to find the food they needed, supplemented with whole foods(table scraps). Things today are also geared towards the most efficient and quickest. Look...

    Homemade feed: what portion of each ingredient

    I do not currently have chickens, nor have I ever made homemade chicken food. But I've been raw feeding my carnivores for over a decade, probably coming up onto two now. I've also made rodent food and parrot food. I've gotten the 'you can't do it', 'you don't know what to do', 'you'll harm/kill...

    Need ID on 4-month-old chick/rooster?

    EE (easter egger) cockerel. A pretty boy too.

    What breed is this??

    Not if they are a black sex link they can't. The way the genes work only the males will be barred and only the females will be black with red leakage.

    Breed ?

    That isn't really true, but is a good rule of thumb for most common purebred chickens. Earlobe color has no effect on egg color.

    Foie gras

    That and you're not forced food to the point of obesity and liver disease.

    Wyandotte Pullet or Roo?

    Cockerel, the patterning looks male. Females normally have a much more even pattern.

    Easter Eggers - Pullets or Cockerels?

    Agree, pullets. The second one is a female color, males won't look like that. And at that age you'd be seeing male traits, large red combs and pointed saddle and hackle feathers. These two have female feathering.

    What breed is my chicken?

    I'd go with cochin. What breeds does your friend have?

    Breed??! WITH VIDEO!

    Australorps have single combs, the bird pictured does not have a single comb. If your bird has a comb like the one pictured you don't have an Australorp.
