I love my Sumatra chickens they are smart and fun and full of personality. Looks like you have several cockerels. Our first chickens were all Sumatra 4 hens one rooster, we chose the gender when we purchased the chicks. Our rooster was a good guy and took good care of our hens. We only had one...
So your saying the first chicken is a silkie mix even though he has no silkie feathers?
The Second chicken yes that is evident due to the silky feathers. But I was asking about the first one. So maybe I was not clear
This is not the best picture but he has a little puff of feathers under his comb and his comb is flat walnut type with what looks like two little for in the back. He is quite docile and quiet.
I purchased a hen at an auction with 10 chicks, I did not sex them. But someone did all but two...
I have seached the forum and have a couple questions unanswered. I hope someone has time to reply.
I have two hens that seem to have a sinus infection, no oozing or smell, just swoolen below the eye in waddle area. Noticed today that one hen is starting to swell more. One hen walks funny not a...

My son's girlfriend stated that you can tell the color egg your chicken will lay by the color of thier legs.
"If they have grey legs the eggs will be grey if they have brown legs their eggs will be brown, if they have yellow legs the eggs will be yellow pink legs they lay pink eggs"
with a toy (wont be able to see toy right away makes it more exciting more like a prize, maybe less likely to melt it away for the toy)
Maybe you could have a monkey burp smell (bannana) just being silly
I have read about other chickens with simular things on the forum but none of the symptoms fit my hen.
She has no discharge, no yucky smell and she feels fine and is eating fine.
She is not sneezing or having any trouble that I can see at all.
Its not swollen and puffy and hot like infection...
OMG I almost peed my pants from laughing while looking at this thread. Made my day.
My sumatra chicks and my rooster are famous for the Stink Eye.
The chicks i have right now are stinkers and they give every one the stink eye including their mom. She doesnt go for it. LOL
