    Blue Australorp vs Black Australorp Personality?

    I was wondering on if anyone has experience with blue australorp personalities. I adore black australorps but wasn't sure if the blues focused more on color than personality. I'd love to hear yalls opinion on blue australorp behavior.

    What cross is this?

    Hello there all you lovely chicken-experts, we got a first egg from Ella our Easter Egger today and it was a biggie (70g) 🙌. It’s got us wondering what she might be crossed with and if we might have a blue egg layer crossed with a Brahma or Cochin maybe 🤞🏼? I ask because I noticed a few rogue...

    Breed identification of day-old ducklings

    At TSC there were assorted ducklings. The ducklings appeared to be blue swedish, and maybe saxony or F&W runners today. I am NOT good with identifying ducklings (yet) so I stood there scrolling through several websites showcasing ducklings. I chose to buy what I think is an Ancona, and the is...

    What breed is this hen?

    Hi all, I cannot for the life of me figure out what breed/variety this hen is. Anyone know? We are pretty sure she’s laying speckled brown eggs as the rest of ours are Easter eggers and australorps. She’s a fun anomaly that we can’t figure out! TIA Kailin Beck Beck Farms

    What breed is this young rooster? Polish & what?

    This is Chironamoe (Ch-ron-e-moe), he's a gentleman and is less than one year old. He's very clever, kind and docile, but I don't know what 'breed' his father is. His mother, Patti the Polish is definitely showing with his crest and comb/wattles, but I don't know who his father is. The two...

    Who am I and what is my gender :-)

    Smaller 3 (2 brown and 1 black) are just shy of 5 months old and all the others are almost 7 months old. Ok we will have photo overload today in this thread.

    Was gifted some hens! Cant determine the breed though any help would be appreciated!!!

    These 2 tiny black gals are tiny bantams! There is a yellow peeper-ed roo too. I'm unsure of his breed as well. Excuse the muddy coop. We've had non stop rain. Finally got some gravel ordered and for the time being got wood shavings down to dry it up. What are these guys?

    Meyer hatchery BBS Ameraucana without beard/muff?

    Hello! Long story short, can anyone confirm if it's possible for a Blue Ameraucana to be without a muff or beard? I was under the impression that they always have a muff and beard and that the Meyer ameraucanas are true ameraucanas; Meyer's website even lists them as having beards and muffs...

    Any idea what this Rural King chick is?

    I picked up 4 chicks from Rural King yesterday. This chick was in a bin labeled “Assorted Egg Layers-Pullets”. My daughter picked this one, and she’s wondering what kind it is so I figured I’d ask here. (We also got a light Brahma, Sapphire Gem, and an Americana.) The bin at Rural King.
