I frequent a duck pond down by my house, and I’ve gotten pretty good at identifying the different wild duck breeds that live there. However, there is one duck (affectionately nicknamed Turkey Bob) that is MUCH larger than the other mallards, and has different colorings. The closest ID I can give...

Hello everyone! I have a rooster that I hatched out about 5 months ago, and I have no clue what breed he is. I got him in a mixed batch of bantam eggs. Can y’all help me identify his breed?
(also, I’m new to this site and I hope I did this correctly)
What breed are these too? The Rooster I got from a local farm and have no idea what he is the hen I got off of Murry mcmurry hatcheries as a Americana but she lays Brown eggs so she's not any idea what they are?
ROOSTER IS A mix

Hello, and a heartfelt thanks to all of you that post and answer questions regularly. I have my very first flock of eleven hens, and I could not have done it without the expertise of people on this site. I spent nearly a year just deciding what breeds of chickens I wanted to have! This is the...
I am a 4-H er in Ohio and I compete in the Canfield fair. I am ordering my birds early this year from Myers Hatchery. What breed should I get? Here is what I need in a show bird:
-Can be a medium sized bird or a bantam
-Fine with being...
A few months ago we picked up 2 olive egger chicks and one maran chick.
But now as I’m looking at one of our olive egger chicks I’m seeing she looks like a barred rock. She hasn’t started laying yet so I don’t know. But I was really hoping for olive eggs.
Is it possible for her to look like a...
So a month(ish) ago I ordered 2 chicks from Claborn Farms in Waco TX.
I got a Black Laced Wyandotte, and a "Super Blue Egg Layer".
So Mabel here is allegedly by definition any 2 breeds of blue egg laying chicken. Maybe more than just 2?
She's a pretty Blue Wheaten, but I'm just...
Is this an Easter Egger or Americauna? I just picked her up from a chicken ranch nearby where I’ve gotten a few pullets before. Was told she is an Americauna but I think Easter Egger. I don’t really care either way as I still think she’s beautiful and just enjoy my backyard chickens as a...
Hi! I have two domestic ducks at home, one of which is an unknown breed to me. The first is a female Pekin duck, and the second is a Drake of an unknown breed, or maybe a crossbreed? Please help me!
He has dark brown eyes, a white belly, a chest with a brownish tint, white wings, a white chin, a...
I know I have 2 Hens and 4 Roosters. Can someone specifically identify my new beauties? Breed and color patterns? Is there anything special I need to do with them or are they just typical backyard chicken maintenance? I have them in the same pen as my Rhode Island Reds. I have 5 Hens and 2 Roos...
Only Wondering about the red and yellow chicks in the picture the other ones are most likely Easter eggers ( was told Americaunas but doubt it ) but I was told the yellow one is a new hamshire but shes looking a little too yellow or will she become more red as the time goes by. The red one I was...
Hiya, so I am a chicken owner looking into getting ducks in the next few years. I’ve heard that Call ducks are a good breed, but I know almost nothing about them.
What are they for? (Meat, eggs, neither?)
How do they behave?
If I put them in our garden, would they eat all the plants?
I purchased some rare assorted chicken breeds from Bomgaars about two and a half months ago, and was wondering what kind of breed this one chick is. She's probably one of the nicest and tamest chicks I have ever dealt with. I'm about 95% sure she may be a pullet. She's a lot smaller than the...
Bought these gray birds this summer from the farm store didn't record what breed they are. Great birds very calm id like to find more . they have stared laying. dark brown eggs would they be and Maran ?
I picked up this duck and picked her out of a huge group of about 50. There were runners, muscovy, khaki Campbell's, and gold 300's in their flock. She guessed it was a cross of a 300 and a khaki. What do you guys think?
