    What breed of chicken is this? I bought her at tractor supply but can’t remember. I feel like it was something that started with an A? Not an amaracauna. Thanks!

    The tale of Honey, the wayward hen.

    My sister keeps some chickens on a homestead in the rural USA. Last night, her favorite chicken did not come home, which was worrisome to all of us. This is her story.

    How do you keep your chickens entertained

    Guess what? My pullets are having a blast thanks to this chicken toy. A bright yellow ball with holes on each end, it's like the neatest snack dispenser ever.

    Hi, I have a chicken that was recently attacked by a coyote a few weeks ago. Shortly after the attack I noticed them limping and a minor lump forming on their leg.

    Any guesses on breed?

    I got this hen today, but I don't know exactly what she is. The lady I got her from had a LARGE variety of chickens. She's a honey-golden color with green legs. (And don't worry, she's sleeping in that one picture, lol.)
