    Hello! Is my 2yo hen turning into a rooster?

    Hello! I have an enormous 2-year-old RI Red who lost a toe in her first summer, 5 Dominiques, and four 4-5 wk old chicks (2 Easter Eggers & 2 Wyandottes). I’ve gotten tips from this forum for a few years now(thanks!), but only recently made an account. I recently read somewhere something like...

    New members here!! So recently me and my girlfriend decided to get six chicks from our local orschlns that said four were barred rocks(other two rhode island reds) but after reading some on here I fear this may not be correct. I read barred rocks are supposed to have yellow legs but these are...

    3 months old... About when do they reach full size?

    I am totally new to chickens and my Dominiques are 3 months old now. I'm wondering, about when are they full grown and/or how large should I expect them to be? I know that Dominiques are slightly smaller than other breeds, and I know "five pounds" is a weight estimate, but I am clueless to the...

    Mid December egg count.

    Kept a count of eggs from my layers this (Dec 12-18). All the birds are less than a year old. I have 2 breeds of ducks and 4 breeds of chickens. All my birds forage freely on my 5 acres during the day except my Rhode Island Reds who have a run. Best layers were my Welsh Harlequin ducks. I have...

    When does a rooster start to crow?

    I have a Dominicker rooster that has yet to crow. We bought him in April and it looks like he’s full grown, being that he is only slightly smaller than my older girls, but he hasn’t crowed at all yet? Is it still too early? He had the feathering of a male bird. I’ll attach a photo that was...

    Could my hen be a rooster?

    I have a Dominicker named Blueberry Michelle and recently I’ve noticed that her tail feathers have a curl or sickle shape to them. My mom says that some hens can have tail feathers like that and we hope she’s not a rooster cause we planned on only having chickens for eggs not breeding. If she is...

    Broken leg? Injury healed crooked.

    So this curious girl went through the fence with our speckled Sussex and got hurt. The Sussex looked like she was in bad shape so I isolated and took care of the wounds. She’s fine now. This girl only looked like she had a tiny nick on her leg and scrape on her back. Those both healed quick and...

    Hi all! I recently purchased seven chicks and its probably still a bit early to confirm sexes and breeds for sure but I'd appreciate any help you could provide on this! I know at least two chicks are not the breed we thought we bought, I now suspect they are Olive Eggers. The others I think...

    When do combs turn pink/red? Dominique

    I have two 4 week old dominiques. They were sold to me as female, and all the signs have pointed to them being female (shadowing on legs and feet, getting feathers quickly, uniform spot on head). I have noticed that one of them has a comb that is slightly bigger and getting more red than her...
