    Gender? I got this little bantam Cochin out of an assorted bantam bin. I’m really hoping it’s a girl because I only have one other little bantam to go with him/her. The other one I’m pretty positive is a girl. (I have full size chickens that I’ve decided to keep separate because I have a full...

    Roo or a Hen? You Decide!

    Hello All, We got this Rhode Island Red (RIR) from rural king back in April. It has grown a lot but its comb and wattles are far more developed than any of our other chickens. It has not crowed yet but we strongly believe it might be a cockerel for the following reasons: 1. It is very...

    Cockerel lowest in pecking order?

    I just reintroduced my young cockerel to his old pullet playmates since he’s feathered out enough to join them. However, I noticed one of the pullets seems to bully him. If he walks by, she will chase, peck, and try to pull feathers! Will this pass? The other pullets don’t bother him. They’ve...

    Easter Egger Cockerel

    Chiclet needs a new home. He will be one in June. I just lost another hen this morning and don't have enough ladies for him. Located in Salida, CO. He loves looking after his ladies. He's not mean and isn't terribly loud.

    Sapphire Olive Egger gender help

    I'm starting to question my whether my SOE is really a pullet. She's 5 weeks old, and has a decent sized comb coming in, no color to it yet though. Most of my other pullets have pea combs, so I know hers would be a bit larger than theirs. She's definitely CCLB and I'm guessing barred rock mixed.

    Easter Egger Sexing // Help Me Sex My Favorite Chick

    Hi folks! I have 4 EE chicks that arrived mid February. I originally ordered three, but four showed up in the mail. I suspect that one is a rooster. None of them have outright distinct rooster/cockerel characteristics at the moment. But this one definitely displays the most rooster-like...

    Could we have a roo?

    This is only the second time raising chicks and we picked up twenty from the local farm store. We’re hoping we might get one rooster from the batch since we will want to free range them once they are old enough. One of the barred rocks was clearly from a prior hatching than the rest and was the...

    Available for Rehoming - 6x Male F1 Crosses in Beaufort, SC

    I am aware that cockerels are a dime a dozen, but I wanted to make these boys available to anyone willing to rehome them. They were hatched out by a broody hen in our backyard, but the eggs came from a mixed flock of all pure breed hens and two roosters. There were two roosters in that flock...

    Lazy or obese cockerel?

    Im not sure if this cockerel is lazy, obese, or has some kind of condition. He is a brahma cockerel so he is a big breed. But i have realized he is a bit rounder than my other brahmas (they are pullets though). I have felt that he sits down an awful lot. He would pant a lot too even if he is...
