    A Hawk Came Into the Yard....

    A hawk came into the yard... Sounds like a setup for a joke with a lame punchline. But it isn't. A hawk came into the yard and attacked my chickens. I never would have believed it if I hadn't seen it, but I came onto the scene too late. It got my Polish pretty good, she was bleeding and scared...

    Jaundice comb on cockerels

    I have 3 5 month old cockerels that have very light red combs with a strong yellow hew. This morning I noticed that one had watery stools. They were hatched here and raised with the rest of the flock. They free range during the day and have access to chicken feed and fresh water. They are all...

    Mystery Rooster - Guesses Welcome!

    This boy hatched from my washed and refrigerated eggs incubation experiment last spring. He's the only one of the 19 chicks that had this coloring - the others were clearly part Easter Egger (muffs and beards, hens lay blue/pink/green eggs), mostly reddish coloring (a few buff and a couple...

    What to do with cockerel?

    We currently have our 7(almost 8) month old cockerel named Spotted Elk inside as the girls have him at the bottom of the pecking order and refuse to let him get food from any of the feeding areas. They mainly free range but I've recently had to keep them locked up in their yard due to some work...

    BBS Ameraucana cockerels WA

    After my first hatch I have some excess cockerels that I need to sell/find homes for. They are 5 weeks old now but I’m going to wait at least another couple of weeks before I get rid of any. I just would like to see if anyone is possibly interested in taking one or more. If I had to guess I...

Liege Fighter Roos (4) $50 each (Light-feathered large Roo in pics not for sale). These are a very large Belgian breed known to be docile toward humans, but fierce towards...

    I feel silly even posting this...

    I'm 99% sure these two are cockerels, but we ordered sexed chicks so just to be sure... Gold Laced Wyandottes, just shy of 4 months old. The two in the front of this photo with greenish tails. No crowing yet. Generally very nice dispositions. They always defer to the older hens (we have a mixed...

    Experience with Frypan birds?

    Husband and I got a Frypan special (from cackle hatchery) almost a month ago. It was a nice mix of what I believe are Buff Orps, Rhode Island Reds, GL Wyandotte, Barred Rocks, Light Brahma and I think some Leghorn. We have raised and done well with Cornish. But our main customer base love the...

    Gentleman Roo

    When does a cockerel reach full maturity? Adam has grown in size, behavior, and personality, and he's a surprising gentleman. He watches over the flock, shows the girls where all the good food/treats are, digs dust baths and leaves them vacant for his leading ladies, and he enjoys dancing...

    Orange County CA Newly crowing cockerel needs a new home

    Scrappy just let out his first crow, dissolving my denial once and for all. He is one of seven in my backyard flock, and I am unsure of his breed— I suspect a RIR. He is 22 weeks old, and has lived in Orange county his whole life, so he has had no known exposure to that disease that has our...

    Barnevelder Temperament

    I have 10 birds and all of them but my 2 Barnevelders (pullet and cockerel) will eat from my hand. The Barnevelders seem to be incredibly skittish. So many people on forums reviewed Barnevelders to be very friendly with a few skittish comments here and there. My question is, do even the most...
