    Sexing Bantam Mix (~3.5 weeks)

    Hello hello, new chicken mama here. I know this is a bit of a long shot, but does anyone have an idea of what sex this chick could be? I understand it hatched on or around Dec 25-26 (now about 3.5 weeks old). It's a mix (probably) of bearded d'Uccle and mottled cochin (probably). Thanks either way!

A farm had a late bloomer and the chick...

    Is this a Prolapse?

    I have a three year old Old English Bantam hen - the photo of her I've attached is for reference but not from today - who started laying again last week after a several month pause. Her last egg was the day before yesterday and was intact but had a rough shell. Yesterday she went into her...

    Can anyone help identify these bantams?
