    ISO Bantam Cochin Chicken

    Hi! Super new to the forums here ^^" I was wondering if there was anyone in the Seattle area that has any Bantam Cochin Chicks for sale. I would opt for hatching eggs and hatch them myself but I can't find any farms that would take the extra hens/roos if I were to hatch too many. I would be...

    Belgian d'Uccle X (and a Pekin!) - colour and sex?

    Hi there! We've got a number of d'Uccle Cross chicks hatched, and I'm terrible at sexing them. Their father is a purebred Porcelain d'Uccle, and their mums (1 frizzle, 1 smooth) are Japanese Bantam x d'Uccle (though, not sure how much d'Uccle since their legs are nearly feather-less!) I've...

    [Integration] Apparently my three older pullets are savage?!

    So, I have three pullets, ages are around 9-10 months old. They are the following breeds: Buff Orpington, Barred Rock, Cream Legbar.

    I thought the best way to introduce myself and how I came to be here might be through this letter I wrote to some interested family members. :) To Whom It May Concern, It might be of interest to you that over the course of the summer, through no initiative of my own, I joined the ranks of...

    Laying rate of bantam hens?

    I recently got some bantam hens from my uncle who had to sell his flock. I got these hens: silver sebright, splash silkie, and an easter egger. I was wanting to know the possible laying rates of these girls, but in roughly eggs per day, not eggs per year.

    1 week old chicks! Silkie? Ayam cemani? Cochin?

    My daughter's high school biology class hatched chicks last week and my daughter brought 4 of them home for me to keep. I'm wondering what breeds these might be? I realize that they may be mixed. One of them is tiny and has 5 toes, I'm thinking it's a silkie. The all black one has a black...

    Hooked Beak?

    Hello, anyone tell me if this beak is hooked? She is a new addition to the flock and seems a little longer than our other bantams. She can eat greens well but not sure about seed and grit. Is it too long and should I trim? Thankyou!

    Bantam Challenges Cat?

    My cat has been good about leaving my chickens alone. But today, my little bantam fanned out her tail (like a turkey!) and chased my cat halfway across the yard! Do chickens do this often? The tail-fanning?
