    Lack of Uniformity From Big Breeder?

    I am roughly 8 weeks in to having chickens for the first time and I noticed two of the 5 breeds (I got 2 of each breed) don't appear to be uniform or look too similar. The pictures show my 2 Cream Legbars (bottom rung of ladder in 1st pic) and 2 Golden Buffs pullets are relatively different...

    Chicken's Dying a Week a Part

    Hi Everyone, I'm sure this has been asked before but I am at a complete loss. Last week I lost one of my beautiful Golden Comet Chicken. She had no injuries as far as I could tell and was completely fine that morning. At first, I thought she was just taking a dust bath as she was in one of her...

    What gender is this? Super odd!!!

    I have a golden comet named Picasso. He/she has the colors of a girl, but the body of a boy. Almost 3 months. The crown is about an inch tall! He looks like a boy and a girl. Here’s a picture:

    1st Timers- Recent Chicks? Breeds? Come share pictures!

    I've spent most of my time so far in the coop/run forums and I am so excited to make the jump over to here. I'm a first-time chicken wrangler and am set to pick my chicks up at Meyer Hatchery on May 28th (I'm lucky I live only 45 minutes away!!) Here is what I have ordered: 4 buckeye females...

    Hello

    We just started raising chickens last spring and so far it has been much easier than I had anticipated. We have 4 golden comets who lay a lot of eggs! They are funny chickens. I had no idea chickens had such personalities!

    Single year old ISA hen for loving home

    Carrollton, GA 30117. One of my year old hens is being picked on, and as a result won’t sleep on the perch. This is causing her to get a poopy butt. She lays 5-6 nice brown eggs a week. I’m hoping someone with a larger coop can adopt her. I’d like to get a muscovy or goose in trade. But she is...

    Will I get Sex-Links?

    I have no clue if this is the right forum or not... but I was wondering if I would get autosexing chicks with the hens being Golden Comets/Red Sexlinks and the Roos being Production Reds. With Golden Comets the roos are white and the hens are red when born. Am I going to have to play the...

    Integrating Silkies with GCs

    I have 7 Golden Comet hens that are just approaching laying age. They have a 4'x8' coop and a dedicated 25'x90' portion of my backyard to free range daily. They are incredibly friendly towards people and even my dogs. I also have 6 silkies (4 roos, 2 hens). They are currently kept in a small...

    Little red pullet

    There is just something so appealing about the pullet stage.

    11 week old pullets won't come out of the coop!

    OKAY. So I have 8 beautiful, happy, golden comet pullets. They're all quite comfortable around us and don't seem to mind being handled too much. They were raised in the house, and put in their coop around 4/5 weeks old. Until they were 10 weeks old, I had to put them out into their run every...

    Severe Prolapse (and Abnormal Eggs)

    Hi all, Today my almost two-year-old Golden Comet (almost) suddenly developed a very large prolapse -- about the size of an apple, and bright red. My impression is that the tissues are engorged with blood. The prolapsed tissues look like two ducts side by side -- I presume the anus on the right...

I got them for my Bantam baby to have some roommates. My new chicka babies are so sweet and loving with my Bantam Baby. They got him or her...
