    Roo or Pullet?

    Hi, I have a Plymouth rock chicken. I thinks he’s a rooster but he’s not crowing like the others and he’s much calmer and is never involved in any of the pecking. I know some hens of this breed have combs and wattles so I’m unsure. What do you think?

    Hopefully Not Roosters, but Acting Like Roosters...

    Hi! So I'm not a newbie to chickens, I've been raising them for around 6-5 years, but there is always new stuff I'm learning. I recently got 4 Delaware chickens for a show I'm raising them for.

    Do you think the 6 week old white and buff chicks are male?

    Does anyone have any idea if any of these chicks are girls? I think that the Sussex ( I think that it might be a cross though because it's legs turned grey) might be male. It has red wattles but a tiny tail. They are all six weeks old today. ...

    Ruptured egg sac?

The chick will hatch covered in a gooey yellowish substance, when it dries it’s very hard to get off and pullling it off really hurts the chick. I’ve had chicks that let this substance dry when hatching so...
