    Help Sexing Egger type chickens!

    You all have been so helpful that I’m asking again. These kids are coming up on 4 weeks, so it may be too soon to tell, but... The brown one was sold as an Americana and the black two were sold as Prairie Bluebell Eggers. They were all supposed to be pullets. One of the black ones barely has any...

    Help, please! Easter Egger sex, plus a few more.

    Okay, backstory. I grew up with chickens as a small child, but have been a city dweller for many years. I’ve recently become a backyard chicken keeper trying to sex cockerels and pullets and decide where to send the men. I got all of these around Memorial Day weekend as “day old chicks” and...

    Brahma x RIR, Brahma x buff Orpington

    I have 3 Brahma roosters at the moment, one golden Brahma and two blue buff columbian. I have Brahma hens of the same colors and I’m planning on breeding them this year but I am curious as to what I’d get if I were to mix the Brahma roosters with some RIR and buff Orpington hens, which colored...

    Here are some pics of my girls and guys that I would like to know the breed of. I know the black rooster is a black jersey giant but I think he may be mixed. My chicks that are black and white are supposed to be Dominiques but I think they are cuckoo marans as they dont have rose combs. And the...

    I’m not Mother Nature, but..... My journey hatching broody and bator chicks

    I knew this would happen! But in my own defense I’m a known worrier. Yes, I am worried about my broody. I realize that Mother Nature has instructed my broody girl to climb in that little, hidey-hole of a nest, and sit on what would be the most uncomfortable spot for me, atop a bunch of...

    What's the weirdest mix you've had?

    I have 2 OEGBs that are broody. I was checking under them the other day and discovered that my silkie has been slipping her eggs under them. So I candled them on a whim. Sure enough, they're developing. The only roo the little silkie has been in contact is a buckeye. That's going to be...

    Very thin chicks

    I have chicks who are about 10 weeks old and lately I have been noticing that they seem to have no meat on them, they are just bone. They are eating fine, have normal activity level, don't seem to have mites, and appear to have fine looking poops. I think I'm going to take a fecal sample in to...
