    Whiting True Blue Hen or Rooster?

    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?)

    6 week old chick with lumpy and scabby neck and head

    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...

    Difference Between Coryza and a Regular Infection?

    Hey everybody, 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...

    Chicken Jumps on Heads

    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...
