    9 week old Easter Eggers

    I have five 9 week old Easter Eggers. My Silkie hatched them out and raised them. Trying to figure out which ones are boys and which ones are girls.

    Need help identifying chickens

    Hi! I got these chickens a week ago and I’m not quite sure what breed they are. My aunt rescued them from the side of the road and I decided I wanted to take them in.

    What breed is this bantam??

    Somebody gave me this chicken in exchange for an EE that I gave them. They said they don’t know how old it is but it’s almost full grown. And they also don’t know the breed or gender! It’s pretty small. About the same size as my Old English Game Bantam. Any guesses as to how old, gender, and...

I got some chicks on the 7th, I’m picking up some chicks on the 13th, and my main batch of chicks will arrive in the end of May/beginning of June. I’m assuming that given the specific temperature needs and the pecking...

    Possible Polish Roo?

    Hey guys! I recently got this little bantam from a friend of ours and was wondering 1. If you could confirm the breed, and 2. If you could tell if it was a roo or hen just yet. I’ve never had good luck with bantam hens so I’m kinda leaning toward roo.

    Latest Point of Lay?

    I have 9 pullets, all raised from day old chicks. The oldest were born around 5/25 and the youngest around 6/30. One of the first group is laying consistently as of 12/5, and one from the other group is starting to squat and act like she may lay an egg soon. My question is, what is the latest...

    How old are these ducks??

    Hi I got these baby ducks a few days ago at a flea market and I never found out how old they were. I don’t know if they are siblings or are from two different ducks because one is a lot bigger than the other but any input would be helpful!
