    Barred Plymouth Rock - Curly Sue aka Sue. She's the smallest of her flock. Sue was my very first layer, which was a pleasant surprise due to her size. She is 4th in the pecking order but can fend for herself if necessary. She's all around an incredibly wonderful girl.

    Barnevelder Temperament

    I have 10 birds and all of them but my 2 Barnevelders (pullet and cockerel) will eat from my hand. The Barnevelders seem to be incredibly skittish. So many people on forums reviewed Barnevelders to be very friendly with a few skittish comments here and there. My question is, do even the most...

    New to Chickens and want advice on breeding

    Hello all and am excited to make my first post. I have 10 8 week old hens (2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Barred Rocks, 2 Golden Buffs, 2 Cream Legbars, and 2 Barnevelders).

    Sorry for the chapter book I'm about to write. I'm heartbroken. I only have 3 girls and now 2 are gone. I'm so upset, I did everything I could right.

    TSC Bantams

    Any guesses on my two Silkies, Barred Rock and I assume a Cochin or Brahma bantys? The white silkie doesn't have a comb showing yet but has some hair-do going on. The black or blue? (not sure the difference) one has more of a comb showing from what I can tell. I know Silkies are hard to sex and...

    Do Your Chickens Love Belly Rubs?

    Okay, so, a few of our flock of 7 hens (about 20 weeks old now) REALLY love to get their bellies rubbed, in particular my Barred Rock and Easter Egger. It literally puts them into a lull--they'll let their wings droop, dozily chatter, and start to fall asleep no matter the time of day. Often...

    The Flower Flock

    I thought it would be interesting to keep progress pictures of my chicks, since A.) I'm obsessed with everything they do, and B.) I'm curious about how my Easter Eggers will change. :D I bought the first four flower girls 4 weeks ago, and the second group 2 weeks ago. Excuse the double...

    What breed is this, and what gender. Half barred rock.

    This barred rock was picked out of a group and we had no idea if it was a girl or boy. We’re hoping for a girl. We know from the farmer, that the father of this chicken was a barred rock rooster, but we have no idea what mother. If you guys could give me an idea that would be amazing. Also...
