    One week old Barred Rock. Black Comb?

    One week old. Has black comb is that normal? Is it a girl or boy? I’m thinking girl. ‘She’ is my favorite. The other 4 just have pail colored combs. ( 3 of them and she had her back turned in one of the pictures)

    Windy mountain tractor

    I started building the base for a chicken tractor back in August 2017 while my wife was on maternity leave.... needless to say it was a busy time so it was delayed until November. My original plan was to put it on wheels but I decided skids would be easier and less expensive. The base is cedar...

    Was supposed to be 23 pullets but....

    I bought 17 chicks from TSC all pullets, then bought 6 from Rural King that were assured to be all pullets. Well, the 3 New Hampshire reds seem to be pullets but the 3 black Australorps may not all be. One is definitely but the other 2 - not so sure. Also I'm questioning the breed of one of them...

    It's time to play.. Pullet or Roo?!? (Barred Rock)

    The chick in question is only 2-3 weeks old so I'm pretty sure it's way too early to tell but I'm being impatient since a friend told me she thinks it's a roo.. She/he was the first to roost and is always finding the highest roosts, I have no idea if that makes a difference or not. She/he is my...

    Anyone know how old these guys (gals) are?

    Clearance at Countrymax got me. Haha $1 each. They were big then, and I'm guessing maybe 6 weeks old now? 5? But I really don't know. It's been 4 years since I had kitchen chickens (babies). Hoping to get 'em outta the kitchen asap. Any ideas? Cinnamon something or another (type of red sex...

    Is my chicken okay?

    I have a four-year-old barred rock hen. She has a large belly, is missing some feathers under her butt, has a slightly ragged comb (not from fighting), and has scaly legs. She is heavy (compared to my other chickens) and walks with a waddle. Additionally, she often sleeps outside the back...

    White Leghorn Hen Offspring

    I just hatched one of my White Leghorn hen’s eggs. It could be a cross with a Barred Rock, Buff Orpington, or Rhode Island Red rooster. Anybody know what each of the potential crosses will look like?

    Possible Rooster?

    i have two light brahmas that are the same age, 6 weeks. They are almost identical now except for a few slight differences. I have noticed ones comb is almost not even noticeable and yellow. The other has a small comb and it is pink. I’m wondering if the one with the slightly larger comb may...

    Pullet or cockerel? Barred rock or something else? Please help!

    I am ner here, and i am also new to taising chickens. I rescued a chick the other day that was wandering all alone in a construction zone where my husband works. I have always wanted chickens, but what better way to start than to happen upon one who was obviosly lost or abandoned. My question...

    Is my Barred Rock chick a roo?

    Hi all, I am worried my Barred Rock chick might be a rooster! Here "she" is right after bringing her home, a couple days old (on the left). The rest of the photos are from today at about 4 weeks old. She is pretty skittish when I try to pick her up, but once I get her she will sit on my hand for...

    Barred Rock. Roo or Hen?

    I bought 5 chicks, all sexed as pullets but my barred rocks wattle and comb are coming in so quickly, I'm worried she may be a he. But also she has more black than white and black on her feet. So I'm just not sure. She is 4 weeks old. Help! (All photos are of the same chick just...

    eyyy new account

    Intro time. I've been on here before, but i use a new email now, and I've also got a new hen. I'm looking to get more of them, but for now I've got a single barred rock hen. Eventually, I want an easter egger, an australorp, and a brahma. I'm also getting into birdkeeping and considering rats...

    Bantam??

    Okay, I picked up 4 “assorted bantams” from my local Southern States and I’m a little worried about my roo. I’ve figured out that he’s a rooster and a barred rock. Only thing is, he is dramatically bigger than my other 3 bantams. This is my first time raising bantams & I’m getting a little...

    Mystery Chickens from TS

    Hello, I’m new to chickens and now have a flock of 15. When I first got chickens, we got 2 bantams ( one died ), 2 BR and 2 RIR ( so we thought ). Then we added 2 more chickens ( mystery bantam and a bantam silkie ) and finally 4 Black Sex link. I’ve scoured this sight to figure out the sex of...

    What could I expect my chicks to look like...

    So, while my babies are still just 4.5 weeks old and I'm impatiently waiting to post new photos of my suspected cockerel... now I'm coming to terms that Caramel may indeed be a boy (his crest is soooo pink). What would be any interesting/fun characteristics of a Golden Laced Wyandotte rooster...

    Barred Rock or Something else!?

    I picked up these 4 Barred Rock “pullets “. They are about 4 weeks old. I originally thought I had bad luck and got 3 roos, but posting somewhere else, many have said only 1 that actually looks like a BR. Do I have 3 cockerels and 1 pullet of Barred Rock, or do I have 1 BR pullet and 3 of a...
