    Is my pullet POL?

    This is Rasputin (yes, that really is her name), my 16-week-old EE pullet. Over the past week or so her comb has really sprouted and taken a reddish coloring that none of the other pullers have. I don’t think she is a rooster as she has never once tried to crow and her feathers are all rounded...

    Long bloody strand in egg

    I understand that its normal for there to be a blood spot in an egg, but I was a little concerned to find this much blood in an egg. I have no males in my flock, so it couldn't be a baby. I just want to know if this is okay and there's nothing wrong with my girl.

    My 1 1/2 dozen blue/grgreen treasure

    So lately my hens have only put out about 2 eggs a day which is weird because I have 7 laying right now.

    Egg with a hole and mystery layer

    I'm sure this is just because my chickens are new to laying just this week, but why is there a hole in this egg? They eat layer feed and get crushed up egg shells daily along with fresh fruits or veggies at night after they've eaten layer feed all day. What chicken could've laid this? It was...

    Observations on Egg Blooms

    In my budding obsession with egg colors and all the factors influencing them, I have scoured the forums for information about blooms, but beyond knowing the purpose (sealing the egg to prevent bacterial contamination or moisture loss), I've found very little info. I know that bloom thickness...

    Too Much Room

    I've got 4 free range chickens in a large backyard. I keep them in the pen at night, but let them out in the daytime. I cannot find where they are laying their eggs? They no longer lay in the coup. Any help on getting them to lay in one consistent place would be appreciated.
