    4.5 month blue Ameraucana, Sacramento

    Hi everyone! I’m looking to find a home for this sweet, docile, handsome boy. Great with us, kids and the dogs. He’s still a bit dorky and trips over his feet or off of the side of the deck while trying to impress the ladies.. He enjoys beard scratches, foot/leg rubs and is easily picked up and...

    8 week EE Green Queen or Green King?

    She was supposed to be a sexed pullet from Meyer, but I’ve had my suspicions about “her” for a little while now. I’ve found a few threads on here that have given me hopes that this is just an early developing pullet?:fl

    8.5 weeks - am I a pullet?

    I’m still having trouble deciding on this chick being a pullet or cockerel? I know Ameraucanas can be hard to sex before 12 weeks when saddles com in, but I’m hoping a keen eye will be able to confirm what I have here. I have another cockerel same age (EE) and will need to decide who stays or...

    Broody Austra White

    Find it odd that a hybrid of such is as broody as this gal has been recently. I am thinking about putting one of my 3 day old chicks under her, she has been sitting for about 14-15 days now on rocks I am unsure of this hens age or if she has been broody before, often, hatched chicks, etc., as I...

    Is this Gemma or Jimmy?

    I go back and forth, cockerel or pullet? 4.5 weeks, maybe still too young? But thinking I see male coloring in the hackles, totally open to being wrong here!

    Still hoping I am wrong but today Nina’s 3.5 week old EE comb is looking awfully pink to me I think I see reddish feathers coming in on the neck/shoulders too, but not sure if this the same male feather trait I’ve seen mentioned in other threads?

    Is this male feather pattern?

    These two EE babes are 3 weeks old, I understand that they are too young to sex by comb or wattles They are a Wheaten Marans mix and I am wondering if they are starting to sprout the male color pattern that I see mentioned here often?

    Potato leaf poisoning?

    Hi everyone, looking for a little advice on what to do with my sick pullet. I found the top off on a planter bed of potatoes and nibble evidence on Tuesday morning. I noticed yesterday her behavior was off, she was standing away from the flock, pulling her head in toward her body and just not...

    Rescued hen

    On Monday I picked up a random hen that showed up at my friends barn. I brought her back home and didn’t get to check for lice or fleas, she was pretty nervous after the 1.5 hr car ride and was having nothing of it. I did notice a few black spots on her comb (hopefully scrapes and not fowl pox)...

    Traumatized hens

    My poor hens that survived my next door neighbor’s dogs attack are completely traumatized. What can I do for them? Is there anything that can be done to help them settle, besides time and patience of course? Should I allow them carry on with regular routines if they want or should they be...

    9 week Delaware broken toe

    This morning I noticed right away that her toe was broken. Do I leave it be or try to tape her up? She’s, of course a flightier one of the flock and fights me feather and talon anytime I think about handling her lol. She is eating, drinking and running around like normal

    Is this the beginning of molt?

    I noticed a couple of days ago a small patch of feathers raised up on her back just before the tail. Today the spot is larger, I suspect it’s her going into molt? It’s a first for both of us lol

    What breed is she

    This is Penny, she’s almost a year now. When I got her at TSC I asked for a brown leghorn, which she is not. Her eggs are a light sage green but she doesn’t look like the EEs I have seen. Ideas?

    Hi everyone!! New member to BYC but have been reading the forums since I started keeping chickens last September. I figured I should make it official and finally create an account. Also because I just received more baby bawks yesterday and sure I will have questions, these babies are much...
