    How to Train Your Chicken for Showmanship

    Showmanship is a fun way to enjoy your chickens and expand your chicken knowledge. It lets exhibitors show off their chicken handling skills and compete for ribbons and other prizes. Chickens that are not exemplary examples of their breed’s type can compete and win in showmanship. But without...

    Gender help. Mostly frizzled bantam breeds.

    Not everybody was cooperating with picture day, lol. I tried my best to get side and front standing photos but some of the chicks were having none of that. I’ll tell you what I know of the breeds as most, I found out, are cross-breeds. Hopefully what info I have will help with sexing. All are...

    Looking for Bantams

    Hi all! I am currently looking for bantam females of any age, and I'm looking for specific breeds: Orpington, OEGB, and Dutch, and maybe other types that are clean-legged and non-crested. I loooove the color mille fleur, but it has proven difficult to find that color in OEGB's and Dutch, and I...

    Bantam guinea?

    Both of these little dears were hatched on 7/9, making tomorrow their 2-month "birthday". The little guy (or girl, not sure which just yet), has always been small. I have heard of "runts" or "dwarfs" hatching out, but also heard that they generally died soon after. This one has always seemed...

    Color Theory Question

    I suspect that my baby bantam mottled Cochin may be an oopsie-roo. I also have two baby silkies, one white and one black. I am curious as to what color their babies would be if they had any?

    Cochin Bantam, roo vs. hen?

    I am *hopefully* getting this pair from my mother soon, and hopefully they are actually a pair! The first pic I KNOW is a roo, he's crowed in my arms, danced at the massive barred rock roo that was wandering the yard when I put him in his run, and is overall very dominant. The second one I have...

    Sudden Sick Hen - Any ideas what it may be?

    So, I have 1 1/2 year old bantam hen (mix breed). She was doing just fine yesterday as far as I could tell, moving around and eagerly eating with the others, but today she was huddled by the water container and not moving. Her crop is a bit inflated (not overly so, but it is noticeable) and...

    Pullet stopped laying then....

    Hey my loves, So my gorgeous Silkie/EE girl started laying really early and laid every single day (sans a couple days inbetween) for almost an entire month. Then I ran out of her feed and changed it, suddenly she stopped laying for like 2 weeks. I know they start and stop when they are young...

    Um, what is this!?

    I discovered a surprise nest about two weeks ago that appeared to be a week away from hatching, well, they didn't so I threw all eggs out, no living babies. That's okay, I didn't need to be raising chicks during winter anyways. Except... I come outside today and this is running around the...

    New Fluffs - What Breed?

    We just picked up some new additions, but were not given the breed. :idunno All we know is that they are 2 week old batam pullets and their legs are feathered. I couldn't pass up the gray chick. They all have poopy butts, so definitely getting some TLC when we get home. I'm not good with...
