    6.5 week old chicks

    What is EE? Sorry, I’m pretty ignorant when it comes to knowing breeds. I didn’t pick these out. They were just brought to the farm. No Silkies. I looked at charts and it looks like 2 Roosters that are Reds. Hens: we have 7 Reds, 2 Ameraucanas, 3 Barred Plymouth Rocks, 2 Black Astralorps, and 1...

    6.5 week old chicks

    Awwww man.... this is why I didn’t want to chance hatching any eggs. We already have 2 roosters. Not sure what to do with another. Lol I don’t even know what breed the roosters are bc they were rescues. Thanks for the response.

    6.5 week old chicks

    Happy to say our chicks are now 6.5 weeks old. We’re pretty sure the one is a Red, but we’re completely baffled with the other chick. It’s feathers are white, and it’s skin is gray/black. We have no white hens. Fingers crossed they’re both hens.

    See, I read somewhere a minimum of 10 hens per rooster, but was assured that they would all do well. Lol, hence why I’m here. Trust me, my girls come 1st. If there are any issues, my husband is already ready to handle it. I hate to say it, bc I’m a huge animal lover, but I won’t risk the hens’...

    Thanks for the warm welcome. We’re located in Fallston, MD. No current roosters, prior to these 2. The roosters were found together & have since been kept that way, with no issues. The run has about a 5ft fence around it and we haven’t had any predator issues, knock on wood, since last year...

    Hi all. I’ve used this site for so much info & have no idea why I waited so long to join. My husband and I have had chickens for well over a year. We’ve had up to 32 chickens, but the foxes have helped that number dwindle greatly. With only 2 survivors from the last attack (which we took the...
