    Limping pullet

    thank you so much for getting back to me! When applying neosporin should I wrap her feet also? This is the first time I've ever had any issues with my chickens. Is there anything that I can do to help her with a sprain/strain? She's really favoring the right side today. She is hoping/flapping...

While they were out free ranging for the evening, I cleaned out their coop and...

    4wk SLW sexing help

    Meet Storm, this is my daughters chick. Storm is about 4 weeks old. It was love at first sight for both the chick and my daughter. If I wasn't there to see the immediate bond that they had I wouldn't have believed it. The chick literally picked her out and stared at her, following her around her...

    New chick with odd beak

    thank you guys, this is the 2nd time I've had chicks and the first time I had no idea what I was doing and had the underdog chick from the school hatch program, so now that I know more I know of what things to look for (sort of) so I'm more of a worry wart now. :-)

    Just picked up 2 baby chicks at Farm N Fleet yesterday. I got a real good look at them today and noticed my silver laced wyandotte has a longer bottom beak. Is this something I should be concerned about? She is noticeably smaller than the other chick I got but she's also supposed to be and...

    baby chick names, please help!

    Our family already has 3 pullets and they are all named after female superheros. Long story short, I help hatch a chick and correct a leg issue and she was the only one to survive so I called her my wonder chick. My class started to call her wonder woman and it stuck. When we got our next 2...

    I have a 6 week old red of some sort...any ideas what kind or if I'll have eggs or an alarm clock?

    No worries, a roo has a home elsewhere, a pullet has a home here with us! We are just outside city pimits but are only on 1/2 acre so neighbors wouldnt appreciate a roo, a pullet won't be an issue here. :-)

    I'm a newbie

    Hello, I never meant to get into the world of chickens. I am/was actually scared of birds....but when your classroom gets eggs to hatch, you have to put on your big girl teacher panties and face your fears...it also didn't help we had a chick who couldn't get him/herself out of her egg for 2...

    I have a 6 week old red of some sort...any ideas what kind or if I'll have eggs or an alarm clock?

    Our school hatches chicks every year, this year I had the joy of teaching in a room with some chicks and was fortunate to have a good batch in our room. We only had 1 that had a very difficult time hatching and at lunch day 2 I helped the little chick out. When the kids went home for the year we...
