    I'm takin' a breed poll

    I've got 3 babies that are 4 weeks old. They are full size chicken breeds, but hatched by a Silkie mama. When the Silkie went broody I gave her the 3 eggs, but not sure of which hen they came from. (I have numerous breeds.) I have one Buff Orpington rooster, so I know who the dad is. I am...

    Silver Inheritance?

    Before I start: This is all under the assumption that what I think I know is true, that silver is a dominant sex-linked trait, and turns gold/red color white. Hopefully that is true. I have a 12 week old pullet that is bred from an EE hen and a Lakenvelder rooster. All of her feathers are white...

    Pretty boy♡

    I am mainly posting because I am surprised by the turn out of one of my first bred chickens (the only animals I was ever successful at breeding were guppies and gerbils, but they require hardly anything for that ). He is a cross between a Lavender Orpington and Sapphire Gem. His feathers feel...

    Black Copper Maran & Buff Laced Polish Mix

    One of our sweet Polish hens hatched three of her eggs a couple of days ago, and it was a completely adorable surprise!

    Chicken genetics book?

    Hey everyone! I’m new to the chicken world and I find chicken genetics to be super interesting but also confusing. I’ve tried doing research online about genetics of feathering and egg shell color but sometimes I read opposing statements on different websites. My question is: does anyone know of...

    Barnevelder or barnevelder cross?

    Last spring I purchased a few barnevelder chicks from a hatchery. I recently purchased a few young barnevelder hens from someone and they look more true to breed than my previous hen. I attached a few pictures of her. Could she be crossed with something else? If so, what? Or is she a different...
