    Are all these boys!? 😭

    Please tell me I still have a chance for atleast one of these marans to be a pullet! Almost 5 weeks old. First pic is of our for-sure cockerel who was hatched the same time as the others around 3/25.

    Calling Marans experts! 3 week old chicks

    Is this broodiness? Pullet

    My 8 month old golden cuckoo marans has been very moody the past week. Grumbling about everything to everyone, yelling, growling and just being a general diva. The past 3 days I’ve had to go out and take her off the nest because she will sit there for hours, even if it’s only fake eggs under...

    Hi fellow chooky lovers, We wanted to call on your collective experienes & expertise to help us determine the genders of our 12 week old Black Copper Maran and Bantam Arucana chicks (the arucana has a bit of lavender through the beard, which makes (hopefully) her look a bit scruffy) We are a...

    Rural King Chicks - What are they?

    So once again I feel like I have been duped by the hatchery that Rural King uses! These are my "teenagers" that are about 3 months old (born in April) I picked out and bought 4 Cuckoo Marans, 2 Sapphire Gems and 2 Easter Eggers. One of the EE died after a week so that is why I only have 1 now...

    How long does it take for feathers to regrow?

    Hello! I have got a French Copper Black Marans who is about a year old now and was the victim of some trauma from change and bullying, she looks awful and I’m wondering how long it will take for her feathers to regrow and for her to look beautiful again? For context (I’ll try to keep it brief)...

    Salmon Favorelle pullet?

    I purchased her thinking she was a Salmon Favorelle pullet back in March, however now I’m wondering if she is a salmon, and if she is even a she! I am definitely no expert on this however when I see other videos and pictures of a salmon at this age they already have a beard/muff. My son also...

    Green-footed new baby ❤️

    Does anyone have chickens that have green feet? My new chicks are ameraucana and Marans so I'm not sure what kind of mix she might be. I'm excited to see what she turns out to look like.

Most will be the same breed while others will be breeds that I'll be pairing with him to produce meat birds from. I'm really excited to see how well his temperament gets passed down.

    Murray McMurray Cuckoo Marans genetics questions

    I've been goofing around with the Chicken Calculator, and I think I might have a crossbreeding gameplan. But, I want to know more about the genetics of the birds involved first. For example, the Cuckoo Marans from Murray McMurray, what is the 'extension of black'? 4 options on the calculator...

    Are these Jersey Giants?

    Hi! I have a bit of a conundrum. You see, back in early May I purchased 8 day old chicks. 6 were supposed to be straight run Jersey Giants and 2 were supposed to be Mystic Marans hens. I could not tell them apart, but figured once they'd grown it would be easier to tell. The trouble is, now...

    Is MyPetChicken still affiliated with Meyer?

    I had a bad experience with Meyer and decided to go with MPC when ordering chicks this time around. But, I’m just now figuring out that the hatcheries are/were affiliated. The threads I saw are years old, so I’m here to ask if it’s possible that they’re not affiliated anymore? Meyer forgot to...

    1 year old Black Birchen Maran / Red Cross Rooster - ALABAMA

    1 year & 2 months old, this guy was an 'oops' egg that was placed mistakenly under a broody silked easter egger hen. The silkie hen raised him as her own and he's a great guy. Even being a cross, I think he's very handsome. He's gentle with his hens and has done well with just 2 hens as well as...

    Broody Hen Won't Adopt Chicks
