    What to feed quails of mixed ages, sexes and laying? Tractor Supply ed.

    We have coturnix quails. We'll be introducing the new quails to our outdoor run/coop as soon as they're old enough (right now they're 5 weeks old) and since they'll eventually be sharing the same food with the older quails, I'm wondering what they can ALL eat? The only feed store near me is...

    Crossing different breeds.

    Ok, I have two roosters, a Red Phoenix and a Rhode Island Red(I keep them in separate coops). I also have 3 hens, two RIR x SLW, and one California White. I was wondering what I would get by crossing some of these breeds. Like what would I get if I crossed the RP x CW? Or the RP x (RIR x SLW)?

    I want to know if anyone has continuously crossed equal part chicken breeds.

If anyone has pics that would be...

    6 Roosters, well-behaved Brahma mixes in Livonia, Michigan

    Hello! We recently raised 11 chicks and unfortunately ended up with 7 boys, so we have 6 cockerels around 4 months old that we are looking to rehome. They were all raised together and handled daily, so they are very friendly to people and each other, and I suspect could be kept together in a...

    Hi all :) It was suggested that I post in here when August is 2 months old. But I was curious to see what others ideas of the result could be. Today August is 32 days old.

    Purebred Cochins?

    I contacted some one local about their “Cochins” and they sent me these pictures. I’m in no way an expert but I do know Cochins aren’t crested. And I’ve never heard of any chicken getting a crest at 5 months old due to a “growing phase”. So I’m asking the experts. These are 100% not pure Cochins...
