    New member, new chicken farmer

    I recently moved out of town on 5 acres and purchased 6 chicks from the local feed store. I lived in town my whole life, so this was very exciting for my boys and I. We watched them grow and couldn't wait until they started laying eggs. We purchased 2 Ameraucanas, 2 Wyndottes, 1 RIR, and 1...

    Transferring Chicks to Coop

    Hi everyone! Newbie chicken person here. I have exhaustively researched caring for chicks. I have the brooder box ready. I’ve ensured there is enough room, adequate heat based on age of chicks and I plan on moving them to the coop around 6 weeks of age based on the reccomendations I’ve read...

    Lazy cluckers!

    Ages ago I had a small flock and had to get rid of them due to moving to an apartment in the city. Now I'm back with a new, significantly smaller flock. I have 3 EEs that are now 38 weeks old and no signs of laying! Lazy suckers! --I feed them a commercial 16% feed (as soon as I'm out I'm...

    Blue Wheaton Aumericana- boy or girl??

    my hens are about 28 weeks old. All are laying except for my lone Easter egger, who is also at the bottom of the pecking order. She (he?) is vocal but doesn’t crow, and certainly doesn’t crow first thing in the morning. I did have a roo so I know what they should sound like. So based on these...

    Chronically Broody Hen

    I have a 1.5 year old Easter Egger Bantum that is now on her fourth round of broodiness in 3 months. Each time I have banished her to chicken jail (dog kennel indoors with food and water only) for a few days. Each time this breaks her for a few weeks. During that time, she will return to daily...

    Is it normal for one cockerel to be MUCH bigger than the other?

    I've got (what I thought were) my two EE cockerels in a separate run/pen together. I was pretty sure that I heard them both crow- and he's got the red shoulders and longer, pointy-er tail feathers (compared to the girls) But his brother is SO MUCH bigger, like half again the size. And, it seems...

    Ameraucana / Araucana / Easter Egger ..The Blue Egg Layers

    I found an awesome article last night. It cleared up a lot of misconception on my behalf. Thought I would share the link. http://www.fresheggsdaily.com/2013/12/ameraucana-vs-araucana-vs-easter-egger.html Usually I read late night to help me fall asleep but had to stop reading this time because...

    Help! Chick all alone :(

    We just moved our 3 week old Easter Eggers (2 of them) out of our house to the garage 2 days ago. Unfortunately my 4 year old didn't put the lid on all the way after watering them last night and they got out and it looks like something got one of them. We found the other one yelling her head off...
