    Gorgeous New Rooster! What breed is he?

    I adopted this lovely rooster today. He looks like my Easter egger mixed with something. Gorgeous green in his tail feathers with a rainbow sheen in the light. Any idea what kind of mix he might be?

    chicken panting?

    my chicken constantly pants. she’s mostly indoors, living in my house with me because she can’t eat by herself (severe crossbeak), so i can’t imagine it has anything to do with heat. she’s definitely uncomfortable, and can’t settle down when she’s having these “episodes”. has anyone had the same...

    Chick Not Growing

    My EE chick is about two and a half weeks old and is smaller then my one day old Ameracaunas and I wasn’t sure why this is? The chick is otherwise healthy it just hasn’t grown at the same rate as my other EE’s and I was wondering if there’s anything I can do?

    Ameraucana pullet vs cockerel

    Hello all, I am looking for an Ameraucana pullet but I need help to be able to distinguish (as much as possible) genders. I know sexing Ameraucanas young is difficult, if not impossible, but does anyone have tips on what to look for? The ones I’m looking at are 4-5 weeks old maybe. I know most...

    Golden Comet or Starlight Green Egger?

    Just acquired a few new 7-8 week olds to my flock and I'm questioning the breeds. I was told the left 2 are Starlight Green Eggers, middle is a buff Orpington, next is unknown or possibly Golden Comet, and last is BR which is obvious. The buff looks nothing like my 2 buffs so I don't think she's...

    Ameracauna - Best place to buy

    I'm hoping to get some advice on good places to purchase ameracauna chicks. There aren't any feed stores that sell them around my area and I'm conflicted about where I should buy them online. One site will sell chicks for $20+ while others will sell for a lot cheaper. Is there a quality...

Laksmi the Houdan was pretty much messing with Copper while he was tidbitting his little hens. Ponyo(aka Copper's GF) was with the other hens, while some...

    Day 3 Development Progress?

    I'm on Day 3 of my first ever attempt at hatching and to say I'm excited is to say nothing! So far, 5 of my 10 eggs are growing beautifully with a nice clear view of the start of the embryo. The other 5 are showing no signs of growth, though; no veins or anything have formed. At first only 2...

    Help! Chick with wry neck.

    Help! I’ve got a 6 week old Ameracauna chick with wry neck. We’ve been isolating her, as well as supplementing selenium, vitamin E, and adding electrolytes to her water. She seemed a little better for a few days, but today she’s been writhing as her neck will twist and then she is “stuck” on...

    Oops, I did it again...

    A few years ago, after starting out with a flock of grown hens given to me by a friend, I decided to get a few chicks to raise. A young and inexperienced chick keeper, I headed over to TSC and carefully picked out six chicks in breeds of interest to me. I was naive to the TSC stories of woe, in...

    Bright red skin and no feathers

    A few days ago I noticed my amerucana rooster has no feathers on one leg and has lost quite a few tail feathers. Also his skin is very red in those places without feathers. His leg appears to possible be trying to grow feathers back. He is in a pen/coop with 5 hens and they are all perfectly...

    Finally on Ebay

    I'm tickled pink! I finally got back to selling my fertile eggs through ebay! This (hopefully) gets me one step closer to living full time on our homestead. I'll be truthful. The amount of work on a farm is unrelenting, and in the past I have found it difficult juggling work, farm, greenhouse...

    ISA Brown x Ameraucana Cross Green Egg

    Over the summer some of our ISA Brown hens went broody unexpectedly. We have a pure-bred Ameraucana rooster with them so we decided to let the ladies try to hatch some chicks. We had 2 eggs successfully hatch, but sadly only one chick made it to adulthood. She just laid her first egg and it came...
