    Breeding with Mixed Flock

    Hello this is my first post to the forum, but I've found many answers to my questions here over the last 3 yrs that I've been keeping chickens. Thank you all for stewarding such a useful forum. I raise chickens for eggs only right now, mostly for my own consumption and give a dozen away to...

    Most varied chicken cross

    I want to know if anyone has continuously crossed equal part chicken breeds. Like for example, a white Leghorn x Rhode island red cross with an buff orpington x barred rock, creating a 4 way cross. Then breeding that with another 4 way cross of different 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...

    Could August be a Maran?

    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. The yellow hatch-mates are already fully feathered. August seems to be about a week or so behind them in development, but...

    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...
