    Breeding California Grey Chickens

    I currently have a dozen white leghorn hens, thinkin about breeding them with a barred rock rooster to get california grey chicks. My question is, does it need to be a purebred barred rock rooster to get the autosexing trait, or can it be any rooster that has barring?

    Leghorn mix?

    Hatched this chick from a mixed flock. She lays a very pale bluish egg. I think she has some leghorn in her. Any ideas ?

    All of my hens have stopped laying simultaneously

    I have 10 hens, and they’re about 7 months old. I was getting eggs from just about all of them daily, and for the last few days they’ve all just stopped laying. I’ve gotten about four eggs total in the last four days. It’s definitely getting colder here, could that be the reason, or is it...

    Rhode Island Red over White Leghorn

    I have four chicks from this cross and I’m worried three are roosters, can anyone confirm by this image or is it too early to tell? They are very flighty too but often rush at each other. Any ideas? They are about 20 days old.

    Legbar? Brown Leghorn? EE? What did I pick up!?

    We recently picked up 2 laying hens from a fb group. The owner wasn’t too sure which chickens laid which eggs and they were sold to her as group of “rare” breeds. So, with it going in to winter they probably won’t lay for a bit. So until we get egg color to go off of, any thoughts on what breeds...

    White leghorn stopped laying

    Hi, I have a white leghorn which I bought as POL 2 month ago and she started laying roughly 3 weeks ago. She has laid almost everyday but this week she only laid one egg on Monday and stopped. I am not sure what could be the problem? Does White Leghorn in general lays during the dark season...

    Leghorn hen or rooster?

    So this one decided to crow yesterday, I have it inside the shed today with the others and it didn't crow today, I'm hesitant to call it a rooster since I have read that hens can crow and this one doesn't seem to have the rooster tail, any suggestions?

    First time chicken owner-best breed?Brahma?

    Hi there, I'm thinking about adding chickens to the list of animals on our little 40 acre hobby farm next year, in Alberta Canada. I'm doing research before we commit. One of her biggest considerations we have to look at is what breed would be the best for a first time owner in our climate...

    Red Sex Link/White Leghorn Cross

    What color eggs might the offspring of a rsl hen and a white leghorn rooster lay? Would the eggs definitely be lighter than the eggs laid by the rsl hen?

    Mixed Dozen and a Roo too!

    Hello all! I decided to join the forum because so many times over the last few months when I google topics regarding chickens, something on this forum pops up. So I figured why not go right to the source. Last November, we purchased our homestead located on 13 acres and one of our first...

    Hi all! I have 3 leghorns I bought the same day. Pearl, Opal, and Diamond. I have witnessed Pearl and Opal laying eggs. I have seen Diamond in and around the nesting boxes a few times but never seen her sit or lay an egg. I only get 2 white eggs per day. Does Diamond look like a rooster...

    Please, tell me they get quieter after they have laid their first half dozen eggs? I have nine hens 21.5 weeks old. White Leghorns. The first egg came with a lot of noise about two weeks ago. The daily quantity slowly increased with the noise. Yesterday I had seven eggs. And the racket has...

    Chicken Sneezing?

    I have a chicken named Stella who I have been noticing will sneeze. I’ve noticed it for the past week and a half or so. She’s 15 weeks old like the other chickens. It’s worrying me because all the things I see that deal with sneezing immediately seem to lead to a respiratory infection. I don’t...

    Sick Chicken???

    I have a leghorn chicken, her name is Munchkin. She's about 16 or so weeks old, and we brought her in the house maybe 2 weeks ago. She had been huddled away from the flock and lethargic. Right now, she's currently in a dog crate. Her shavings get changed regularly and I take her out every so...

    Opinions on gender please! Kinda guessing on breed as well...

    I purchased three random grab-bag day old chicks to put under a broody hen that I had. One of them looks like your typical Easter egger, the other two are kind of a mystery to me. I contacted their breeder and she said they found out a couple of weeks ago that their chicks had more genetic...
