See attached pics . Hatched approximately first of November.
I feel pretty positive 2 out of the 3 leghorns are roos, due to there nature and size. They square up to each other occasionally.
The pullet is still growing in feathers.
Unsure of the 2 rhode islands; both appear pullet to me...
Almost positive this is olive egger. It could only be a olive or marans, as i hatched both out in that batch but only 2/10 mDe it… the rest a hawk cleaned me out when it broke the fence.
according to my records, i hatched it out may 2021. The other olive just started laying. But i think im...
Yard is 24x24, with a 10x 20 wing. Only section staying muddy is by the waterer. I have 15 chickens, 6 ducks. Ideally once i finish the ducks there personAl water trough the 10x20 wing will be for them. Any suggestions tho for now how to keep the mud down ??
I have 6 ducks; Rouen & 2 swedish mix drakes, and a pekin, cayuga, & indian runner hen.
Currently they are co habiting in a 25x25 run with 11 chickens. Everyone has plenty room to eat, drink, sleep, no fights so far
however i am going to separate so i can have the water set up a little...
So i was gifted 6 ducks. I know nothing about them other than there nasty & messy 😂😂 i have them set up with nesting boxes . So they wil be taken care of with my 30 chickens.. anyway heres pix. I know 3 drakes & 3 hens. Also, what can i expect about egg laying? There about a year old
Never have seen them in 4 years of having up to 40 birds, but any how apparantly one has them. Im gona treat entire flock, but what is best alternative without catching each one individually? Could i pour apple cider vinegar in there waterer? (On demand 5 gallon bucket with trough) or a powder...
Would anyone be interested in trading a dozen (or more) of my barnyard mix for at least (6) crested? Im looking for polish, large fowl silkie , spitzbaun, etc..
i have orpington, turken, ameraucana, cochin, orloff, legohrn, barred rock & some rainbow / olive eggers.
located in 70818 Louisiana
my local hatchery / small farm is very popular for creating there line of them. Just wondering if anyone heard of it as a different name. Coming up short on gemstone in A search Bar. is this just their name for the saphire gemstone?

I had some spare time to fab up a egg bumper... give me your thoughts and opinions. I see it as a way teh chicks can thoroughly dry out, while letting there siblings hear them chirp, but not play bumper cars!
22 is way too many I believe , so i made this one for 16. Once lockdown starts and egg...
Just what it says. Currently i use the pine flake from TSC in nesting box, but i have a few bags of this mulch left. Since the last storm my flakes are soaked. CAn i use this in its place in the nesting box? It is a completely open front design. So plenty ventilation

Ok. So i built one of these rather larger, (will explain later on what i learned) but i needed one for the younginz. Here are the sizes wood i used. I had alot of scraps left over from deer stands so i had no cost in this other than screws. Im expecting it to hold 50-75 lbs with ease, as my...
