This chick is 6 weeks old. I’m wondering about the feathers along the neck. Does that determine if it’s a rooster? Or do hens sometimes have pointed feathers there? Very sweet bird. No other male behavior or crowing (yet?)
Hi everyone, I'm new to having chickens and everything has gone well so far except for this girl.
She is a mystic onyx which I understand has some Silkie in it. She has always been a bit of a lone ranger but ever since about the 4 week mark she has slowly developed scabby, bumpy, and flakey skin...
I have buttons for friendliness, and she is nothing but skittish. She is also lonely and desperately needs company, but refuses human attention. If someone can offer her a home, they can have her for free. i can add pictures of course.
Gotta love straight runs. Amiright?! :hit
I’m 99.9% sure I have 4 Roos and 2 pullets. Husband doubts me. Men. Pffhh lol.
What do y’all think? I have them numbered and pics are the best I could get.
They’ll be 7 weeks on Monday!
I tried to get good pics of their faces and their tails. They...
Only Wondering about the red and yellow chicks in the picture the other ones are most likely Easter eggers ( was told Americaunas but doubt it ) but I was told the yellow one is a new hamshire but shes looking a little too yellow or will she become more red as the time goes by. The red one I was...
So my friend is wondering if anybody can explain how to tell if a chicken has coryza vs a regular respiratory infection? She doesn’t want to have to cull her 6 week old D’uccle if she doesn’t have to.
The reason we’re asking is because he was sneezing a bit the first day, but...
I have a bunch of 6 week old chicks. I have two sultans, a Swedish flower hen, and a barred rock. I had one other Swedish flower but she passed yesterday after a seizure.
Now recently, in the coop I have been noticing, that there has been “blood” in stool where the chicks are, though the poo is...
Hello everyone! We have 12 mixed chicks (all females) ranging from 5-6 weeks that we currently have inside while we build our coop. Their container has a layer of pine shaving bedding on the bottom and they seem to love to sit in it, scoot their butt around, and flap their wings. They've done...
a couple questions regarding my silkies.
We are leaving for a few days. They are inside my house (3 silkie chicks, 6 weeks old) and I have a neighbor checking on them during our time away.
Are they old enough to not need a light anymore?
My second question is can anyone tell (I’m aware it’s...
She May Be Small, But She Can Still Get Her Head in the Bucket to Eat!
This is my 6 1/2 week old white silkie eating out of the feed bucket I made for my chickens. I do have feed at a lower location, but she prefers eating like the others do!
So we got a 6 wk old Buff Orpington who we still haven't figured out it's gender but its acting way different than the others.
-Keeps attacking me whenever I reach into the brooder to change the water/food container.
-pecks the others as if doing the pecking order.
-stands near one and...
6 1/2 Week Black Maran Pullet or Rooster? Comb and waddle beginning to pink up, but not red yet. Not sure if Black Maran roosters have more prominent red comb and waddle by this age? What do you think?
Hilariously, and adorably, my 6 week old chick likes to jump on people's head and just sit there. I'm assuming she thinks it's like a nest, since she's just a baby still I never thought about giving her a nesting box, but maybe I should? Does she want to practice nesting? She's a barred...
I have an (1) almost 6 week old chick, as well as 5 other chicks that are almost a week old. I have had them in seperate brooders at this point, however the little ones are starting to jump out of the box they are currently in. I am considering putting the babies in a dog crate in with our older...
