    My chicken, Koala!

    Hello! So May 6-8 2021, we hatched 6 chicks! The one I named, Koala, was a wild card with gender and breed. We got the eggs from people we petsat for with a NUMBER of different breeds. I’m thinking Koala is a hen, but I would love to just make sure! I’m new to backyard chickens, and this is my...

    Abandoned bird - what breed?

    I was driving through a remote stretch of mountains not too far from where I live, and at one of the scenic pull offs, found this beauty. I’m guessing someone had just dropped her off (at least I believe it’s a hen), as there aren’t any homes for miles. She approached my vehicle immediately...

    Help ID teenage chickens please

    Hi! We got week-old chicks from the local farm and fleet in Wisconsin, but the lady on duty wasn't sure what they were. We also think that one may be a cockerel. Any ideas? The tan stripes are really throwing me off - maybe they will change over time?

    Early Developing Cockerel?

    I have three 2-week-old buff Orpingtons and I know it is really early but one’s comb already looks red and thicker than the others. Can you say if this is a cockerel yet?

    Rooster hen? Hen started crowing?

    So my bantam, which was suspected to be a hen, started crowing. Now I've heard about crowing hens and all that, but I'm not sure. We think she layed an egg because we found two eggs in our coop, one broken and one normal. The white one layed the broken egg (we saw her in action...) so we assumed...
