    Hello, as the title says, I have noticed 1 of our 4 chickens (Rhode Island Red, All Born 3/30/17) has white tips on her feathers at the top of her head and has some baby feathers loose as shown in the pictures.

    Chickens Aren’t Laying, Roosters Aren’t Jumping

    So I’ve got a tricky situation that I’ve never heard of. We’ve had chickens for about 3 years and have dealt with all kinds of situations with them.

    Hoping for some advice, I have 5 chickens and no eggs. They're all 9 months or older and it just seems odd. I know some can take up to a year, I have a Brahma, Easter Egger, Ameracauna and 2 silkies. They do free range but I've checked the places they usually hang out and no eggs. The only...

    Hello! Today we have found our chicken Ash hiding underneath a tree sleeping where she is usually with the flock. She also usually hates being picked up and will flap her wings, run and yell, while today she stood still while we picked her up to examine her. She had some poop stuck to her vent...

    NO EGGS this winter in Nashville—a first!

    We have had a small flock of heavy-breed backyard hens for about five years. On October 11th, we lost our young Barred Rock, Millie, due to what appeared to be (after my amateur autopsy) internal laying. Since two weeks after her death, we have not gotten eggs from any of the remaining three...

    So, a bit of background for the past few weeks, when this problem started. With 8 chooks, and only 3 people in the family, we have plenty of eggs. So sometimes we go a couple of days without picking up the eggs from the coop. It's not normally a problem. If a chook starts sitting on them, they...

    Hey y'all, We have 4 hens. We live in Prescott AZ where it gets to be freezing at night and 50's - 60's during the day. They were free ranging around our yard most of the summer to keep them out of our fenced in garden. Once we pulled out the garden for winter, we moved the run from the coop to...

    9 month old Ameraucana's not laying!

    Pics for reference. My girls were born in January. They free range a couple of hours a day, have access to plenty of food and water, and are happy friendly birds. Now, I know they may not even be ameraucana's, but this is late for any breed. One of my girl's combs just got a little bigger and...
