    EE/Brahma babies

    Both of our Australorps went broody at the beginning of June so we decided to put some fertilized eggs (EE mom and Brahma Dad) under one of them.

    Aggressive roo

    I have a 9 week old EE roo that started grabbing the neck feathers of my 9 week old pullets. Would he be trying to mate with them already? He seems too young to start doing something like that. Any input would help. Thank you.

    Sexing Easter Egger chicks

    I purchased three EE pullets, but I am questioning whether two of them are actually females. I'm pretty sure Dusty is a girl, but I am really questioning whether Brownie is or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
