    Tiny crested chick gets territorial. Will they become friends?

    They are young, so chances of it lasting long are slim.

    Tiny crested chick gets territorial. Will they become friends?

    I would keep distracting them. Make sure they are warm enough and both eating enough. When i have one who does this it often just needs distracted a few times to give up.

    Calico silkies

    I picked up a group of silkies today and they included this little rooster who is apparently a calico silkie! Anyone else have some they would like to share photos of? I have never even seen one before today!

    2 1/2 week old lavender orpington / roo?

    No replacements or refunds until the chickens are at least 10 weeks of age. so no, i just ordered a second batch since i was already sure that two of these were boys. Glad i did. Because they are only 2 weeks apart i age so everyone is able to brood together and doing great.

    3 week old photos yesterday. Im %100 sure he is a baby roo at this point. He gets bigger and bigger by the day. His little comb and wattles are very pink in color. And he already had the attitude to go with it.

    I love meyer as well. However out of this batch of 5 sexed pullets one of the australorps is also a roo... so not super good odds out of this batch. my previous orders over the years from them have always been 100%. But not this time. But oh well. Like i said i will keep him anyway.

    If you have a similar breed to compare thats very useful. But a photo of a single chicks legs and feet are not helpful with nothing to compare. she was larger when they arrived. But for sure not days older. Same amount of feathering as all the others when she arrived. i have hatched lots of...

    Yes they should all have combs no matter what. Its the growth in the comb at this age that makes a difference :)

    Fingers crossed for a bit longer. even my white leghorn pullets didnt have this much comb at 2 weeks. And they end up with much larger combs than orpingtons. aww i recieved more from them today as well! todays order i got blue orpingtons, and some easter eggers! Love meyer hatchery!
