She is supposed to be an EE, but I’m becoming unsure and her comb seems to have really grown suddenly. Is the color/size normal for a pullet? Also, the big-headed...

    4 week old Easter Eggers

    I got a few Easter Eggers from a local farm and ranch store to add to my flock. They were supposed to be pullets but I’m wondering if you think otherwise with these two in question? I also understand it might be too early to 100% know

    First time EE owner… pullet or cockerel??

    It is still kind of early, these chicks are only about 4-5 weeks old. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if a couple of these chicks are cockerels, as I have started noticing a difference in their combs already. The first pictures are the chicks who I think have noticeably bigger/pinker...

    Hen plucking breast feathers - Broody?

    I just have a few quick questions about my possibly broody hen. My hen is a year old EE and has been laying very consistently.

    Fairy Egg Question (just for fun, maybe)

    I've read that fairy eggs are often darker than the normal eggs produced from the same hen. That being the case, I was wondering if you more experienced folks could weigh-in on whether this fairy egg probably came from the same EE who laid the lighter green eggs in the background (a new layer...

    Multiple shell less eggs

    My EEs are 22 weeks old. At least one started laying 2 weeks ago. She laid a few normal but small eggs. Then about a week and a half ago, she dropped a shell less egg right in front of us on the poop board at 9 pm! Since then, I have been getting a minimum of 2 shell less eggs a week. This week...

    Easter eggers, roosters or hens?

    So today at Tractor Supply they had Easter Eggers but they were straight run. 😩 I already have a monster of a rooster so I don’t need any more. The lady working said she can “somewhat” determine the sex by the wings but couldn’t guarantee it. Some had very distinct wings and some it was hard to...
