    When will my Muscovy father and son start fighting?

    So unfortunately I ended up with 2 girls and 4 boys in my brood of ducklings. I have decided to keep one of the males and get rid of the other 3 and my drake (their father). Trouble is that I have listed them on Craigslist and have continued to lower the price down to practically nothing and...

    🐓🐓Flock Integration Advice

    Hello chicken enthusiasts! Back in April, I was only able to get two barred rock (due to some specific circumstances). I had them in the run for a few weeks, so that they would know that it was their home and such. My older flock, free ranges and would come and go from the run as they would...

    hello I have a batch of 9 mixed isa browns and rhode island reds, both a little more than 2 years old and all girls. I’ve never had problems with them until yesterday. Yesterday afternoon, six of the nine all started to attack one hen, and i had to pull her out. When I did, she had a large cut...

    Is it possible to re-introduce roosters?

    Hi, I basically hatched 5 eggs in November last year and weirdly enough they were all boys. One started fighting another at a young age so I split them into 2 groups. The two groups are great with one another without hens, with only slight squabbling you’d probably see between hens anyway...

    Ducks Getting Along

    So about three weeks ago I purchased 3 ducklings (pekin, khaki, and cayuga) The khaki sadly passed on the ride over so we were left with just the two. The khaki was supposed to be my brothers and he was very upset so we decided to get another khaki and since they can’t be shipped alone we had to...

    5 week old chicks fight when they see me

    My 2 olive eggers who are siblings are 5 weeks old, my barred rock (likely a roo) is just under that, and 2 buff Orpingtons are 4 weeks. The olive eggers have always been the biggest due to their age, but now they are significantly bigger than the others. It seems like every time they see me...

I got up today to let them out of the pin, and then about 5 minutes later both of them puffed up and ran at each other and started pecking each other on the beak.I have never seen this before so I don't know what to think. Can anyone explain to me what...

    I have slowly started introducing the new ducks. at first I let the new guys quarantine then showed them to each other so they could see them but not be with them. next I let them outside together and my less dominant duck kept going back and forth with the the new guys and his friend. After...

    Five Jakes One Jenny

    So we have a group of six turkeys. Just like the title, five jakes, one jenny. They’re currently fine, but I know this is gonna be a problem later with fighting and overbreeding. They also hang out in the same yard as chickens and ducks, though they were raised separately and usually keep to...

    Hello all! I’ve got some misbehavior happening causing bloody combs and I’m not sure why or what to do about it. Yesterday my girl Piper (Plymouth Blue Rock) had a bloody comb so I stayed out in the run to see what was happening. I noticed another of my girls, Kia (Leghorn) who typically keeps...

    VERY Dominant Hen

    I have a super dominant hen. I have no doubt that if both my roosters died, that this hen Jolene would transform into a rooster to take their place. I raised my flock from chicks- ending up with 12 hens and two roosters. Orpingtons- 3 color variations. Being a new chicken mom, I have found the...
