    Help! New chick owner - cant identify and age this little chick

    Hi! I’m new to the chicken world and am slowly learning everything there is to know. I’m finding it difficult to know what breed, how old and what gender this little one is (it’s about ~11/12 weeks old, is my guess). It’s also almost positively a bantam. A farm had a late bloomer and the chick...

    Is my silkie a hen or a rooster

    This is my Silkie Eco we got her/him about 5 weeks ago and the previous owner said she was about 4 to 6 weeks old. So she could be anywhere from about 9 to 11 weeks. Could someone tell me about how old she is. Also if she is a rooster or not, she almost attempted at crowing but it wasn't a full...

    How to tell how old a chicken is??

    We bought some chickens a mixture of pullets and cockerels, we were told they(females) were just starting to lay. Now months later I’m starting to think some of them were older birds. A few of them have always laid large brown eggs, but they were the skinner chickens that looked more stressed...

    Rescued hen not laying

    Hi all! About a month ago, I rescued a d’Uccle Mille Fleurs hen that had somehow gotten into a neighbors back orchard. She looks fairly young, certainly not too old to lay, but she has yet to lay any eggs. Does anyone more familiar with the breed have any tips on encouraging laying?

    Can anyone tell me how old they believe these pullets are?

    We bought six pullets. Two each of three breeds. We were given the same hatch date for all of them, but I'm not convinced it was correct. Any thoughts on the age of our girls? Please forgive the lack of diversity in the photo. No one wanted to come out of the coop at that moment and the...

    How old are my chicks?

    I got my chicks from tractor supply the day they came in (I was calling everyday to see if they had a shipment). I know Barred Rocks grow more quickly, but I don’t want to put them outside full time and risk it being too soon. We have had weather outside in the 90’s in Arizona during the day and...

    Confused about my New Hampshire Pullets

    My girls are 14 weeks old. I purchased them at TS. I was wondering why my Scarlet has a bigger wattle than her sister Ruby? Could she possible be older? Or does it just vary by the pullet? Oh, I just had to add a Scarlet butt photo, it is just so darn cute! Thanks for your help!

    When will I get eggs?

    I got my chickens on Feb 28th, so 16 weeks ago. It was my understanding they were already a few days old. (here is a pic from that day) They are Rhode Island Reds and EE. My Reds are starting to show more red and a few of each breed will shut some if I run my hand gently over their backs. I...

    One chick is sneezing, and I’m not sure on age.

    So I’m guessing my chicks are about a week old? I’m wanting an age preference. The one is the runt and the other one is alittle bigger. And tips on getting them to not run from you in the coop, or is that normal where they are so young? Thanks a bunch my lovely chicken friends. ALSO the...

    Cornish Cross Weight at 8 Weeks?

    I understand that Cornish X's should be slaughtered at about 9 weeks of age and males will be around 10 pounds, females around 8. Is this true? Or are these numbers too high?
