    New chick owner and very confused

    Hello! I’m glad to be a part of the chicken raising club but definitely struggling along this far. I think my brooder is too warm, but yet my chickens are all huddled together. They are panting, and definitely to the side of the coop, but they are also huddling and seem to be trying to snuggle...

    Adding chicks to mama hen 2 days after hatch

    Hi, Sorry to ask a question straight away but I’ve searched the forum and can’t find anything specifically on this topic. I have a lovely, very maternal Light Sussex who went broody three weeks ago and I snuck 6 Barnvelder eggs under her. She sat on them like a champ but unbeknownst to me...

    My chicken hatched eggs... one died, one is sick and the last one is perfectly healthy... what do I do?

    One of my hens, Plucky, had hatched eggs! My dad figured this out when he saw her sitting strangely on the barn floor. However, when I had gotten there, there was a chick dead. The remaining chicks seemed fine at a glance, but when I looked at the smaller chick, I knew something was up. It...

    Help with breed and gender

    Hi, I have no idea what breed or gender my chicks are! They are 1-2 days old. Any insight into breed and gender for each would be great! I know it may not be possible to sex at this age but any insight on when it will be possible would be great!Thanks, Beth

    Baby Chicks Under Mama

    Yikes! Broody hen has been sitting on eggs for what I thought was almost 2.5 weeks. Well now she’s sitting on a baby chick! Help! What do I do? She’s about 3.5 feet off the ground in her nest. I removed the big waterer and put a chick waterer in the coop. The coop is an old 10’x15’ barn. I...

    Hello everyone! I have two bantams and have room in my CT backyard for maybe 3 more bantams/small standards at the most. Preferably two I think. Does anyone have any available for sale? I really don’t want the little babies to deal with long shipping through different states. If pick up is an...

    Urgent advice needed on hatching partridge eggs

    Hi there, a few weeks ago a well-intentioned family member popped some abandoned partridge eggs underneath the chickens we own in the hope that the hens would sit on the eggs and raise them as their own. They’ve sat on the eggs happily until now, but have started to attack the chicks as they’ve...
