    Bantam cochin fertility issues

    I bought a trio of bantam cochin chickens. And the hens are laying eggs, and I have hatched a few of their eggs in the past (6), but the fertility is extremely low. Their age is about 3 years, and I feel like the problem isn't with the age, I think they face difficulty in mating. The male does...

    Irresponsible hen!

    I went out to check on my mama hens this afternoon. I have two of them, one with 3 hatched chicks & one with 4 unhatched chicks. The hen that's supposed to be on a nest was out on the town with her friends. This isn't the first time she's left the kids home unattended. 😒 So my CPS (chick...

    Feeding eggs to chickens on antibiotics.

    So, I'm treating two quarantined egg-laying hens with antibiotics in their water for three days for a respiratory infection. As per the antibiotics, we are not to eat their eggs until after 6 days of discontinuing the antibiotics. Can I feed these eggs back to the chickens or should I discard...

    How much longer do y’all think before she can lay eggs?

    I got her when she was idk big enough to sit on my palm but still sounded like a chick, she sounds like a hen now and is a lot bigger but I don’t think she’s reached her potential size yet. I feed her insects, live fish, rice and sometimes bread. The breed I’m pretty sure is Black Australorp...

    A couple of months ago I won some emu eggs in an online raffle, that were shipped from the Midwest area of the US to the south east. They were doing great up until week 6. They were wiggling like crazy whenever I would take them out to weigh them but one of them completely stopped wiggling after...

    Finally have eggs! Breed of chickens and who laid what?

    I have 8 chickens in which 4 are 5-6 months old and the rest are 4 months old. I'm pretty sure the younger 4 are easter eggers but I'm a bit confused as to what the 4 older ones are especially after I found some eggs this week. My mom got them all randomly from TS a month or so apart. In the...

    What kind of egg is this?

    So to start off, I have 4 Easter egger chickens and three brown Ancona ducks. My chickens are 28 weeks and have been giving me 1-2 eggs a day for several weeks. The ducks are 25-26 weeks old and I had given up on them as all being males. When I pick them up they are mostly quiet, but not raspy...

    Silkie laid an eggy at only 22 weeks?

    So my five little silkie girls have started squatting as of a week or two. I was quite suprised, as they are only 5 1/2 months or so. I can't be sure of who pooped the beautiful nugget, but i know it was one of them. Lulu (my duccle) lays rounder, creamier eggs. Although it wasn't completely...
