    Integrating chicks into a flock?

    Hello all!! I have ten hens, they’re all pullets, and they’re absolutely lovely! I would love to add to the flock, though. How would the chickens fare if I got some new chicks? I know a lot of the time when you add new chickens to a flock that has already established a pecking order and whatnot...

    Chicken hybrid: is it silkie & australorp or something else?

    I just got this beautiful chicken but I’m not sure of the breed. She’s black with a speckled blue sheen, she does appear to have 5 toes in one photo (I haven’t counted in person yet but will tomorrow morning). I suspect she’d black australorp and silkie or maybe easter egger and black copper...

    Pullet has split beak?

    Hi! My 9 m/o EE has a split beak. (photo) She isn’t having any issues eating or foraging or preening or pecking at people. it has no affect on her life whatsoever. she just looks like she has a gap-tooth. I’ve tried to trim it back and place one of those manicure saver fiber things with...

    Hi! I’m Ellen - this is Mabel - and we’re in Cleveland, OH.

    Hello! My name is Ellen. Recently, over the last few weeks, a chicken has been visiting my backyard. I figured she was a free range chicken and went back to her coop at night. I ended up following her one night and found out she was living in a downed tree behind my fence. I started giving her...

    Can I introduce Bantams to a normal sized rooster?

    Hi! I just recently finished building a couple coops and purchased my first pair of chickens. The rooster is half Easter Egger and half Copper Maran, the hen is a silkie. They’ve been with me for about a week and are already quite comfortable with me. They get along very well and eat from my...

    Easter egger 7 weeks

    I’m trying to figure out if this is a rooster or a hen, I believe rooster based on my other easter egger doesn’t have a comb and this one is already “practice crowing.” The hatchery I got it from says 7weeks is too young to tell if it’s an actual rooster or not even though I sent video of it...

    All of my hens have stopped laying simultaneously

    I have 10 hens, and they’re about 7 months old. I was getting eggs from just about all of them daily, and for the last few days they’ve all just stopped laying. I’ve gotten about four eggs total in the last four days. It’s definitely getting colder here, could that be the reason, or is it...

    Legbar? Brown Leghorn? EE? What did I pick up!?

    We recently picked up 2 laying hens from a fb group. The owner wasn’t too sure which chickens laid which eggs and they were sold to her as group of “rare” breeds. So, with it going in to winter they probably won’t lay for a bit. So until we get egg color to go off of, any thoughts on what breeds...

    Greetings from Swarthmore, Pennsylvania

    We adopted two hens a bit more than a month ago so I guess it's time to stop lurking on this site. Our adoptees are Ella (an "Easter Egger") and Cleopatra (a Golden Laced Wyandotte), but we have an order in for three Silver Laced Wyandotte chicks, ETA early December. Am currently building a coop...

    Okay so... I'm wondering if my EE is an Ameraucana...

    When I first got chickens, I didn't know the difference between EEs and Ameraucanas. Looking back, our "Ameraucanas" were actually EEs. I've always loved EEs and so now I'm curious. I have a rooster, maybe 6 or 7 years old at this point. He doesn't have green legs (I don't think... they look...

    Easter Egger?

    I adopted this beautiful hen and her owner did not know her breed. I’m fairly new to the chicken world so google searches have guided me to a silver americauna or an Easter egger. However, she looks more Easter egger to me? Opinions? (She should start laying any day so that may give me my answer)
