    Hello Everyone!

    Hello! After many years of going onto this site to troubleshoot and learn, I decided to join the community! I’m a chicken and guinea owner from New York and we’ve owned chickens on and off in the past years. However, this year our flock is bigger than ever and I’m very excited to watch them grow...

    Is Nugget a roo?

    Nugget is a three weeks old Buff Orpi and we're starting to have suspicions that they're a rooster (or cockerel at this point.) Is there anyway to tell this or is it too early? We were sold them as pullets but I know these local hacteries can make those mistakes. They're getting their waddles...

    Baby Daisy

    Anyone know what kind of chickie this baby is? She was labeled as "russian orph", whatever that is 🙄. The guy said Orpington, but I'm not so sure about that either 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Gender? Breed?

    Hello. I have these two chicks that were sold to me as 1 Orpington and 1 buff Sussex but I don’t think those are the correct breeds I got and I’m also worried they might be roosters any ideas? 1 is 4 and a half weeks old and the other is 3 and a half weeks old. Any opinions will help. Thanks.

    My experience with Buff Orps and Past Regrets

    I got into chickens when I was probably around 8 or 10 years old. My brother who was in high school at the time played a big part in getting baby chicks. We had so many chicks (so many!! Lol), and the majority were straight run. Well one of my favorite and most remembered birds happened to be...

    Looking to add baby Cochins, brahmas, and Orpington

    So I currently have 3 black stars and the plan is to keep them separate from the new babies because they have had a bad history with other birds. How well would Cochin Orpingtons and Brahmas mix together? Also I have the option of getting them day one or 2 or 3 weeks down the road. What would be...

    To free range or not to free range?

    Hi! I’m new here, my name is Bobbi. I am a new chicken mama to Orpingtons, Cochins, and sapphire gems. I’m working on converting an old milking barn into my coop. I’m currently in the dilemma of trying to decide if I should let my chickens free range during the day or not. My boyfriend and I...

    Help do I have a rooster Orpington?

    Hello I have 3 Orpington 3 1/2 week old chicks, 2 of them are larger in size. And have combs forming one of them looks like it’s turning red. Is it too soon to sex or do these look like roosters? Also the two I believe are roosters beaks have been changing color and I don’t know why.

    Buff Orpington or Americauna? TSC

    So I saw these chicks in the Americauna tub at my local farm store. The cashier told me they looked like buff orpingtons but maybe were put in the wrong tub... what do you guys think? They certainly look like BOrpingtons according to google images but they also look a lot like “splash”...

A family member got them for me from ts. Supposed to be all pullets. I’ll let you guys be the judge! Good news, roosters are allowed in...

    Orpington maturity rate??

    Hi everyone, I have a bit of a weird question. I was wondering if Orpingtons take longer to mature than other breeds or not??? Like in terms of mating, crowing, etc. Because I have a 5 month old Lavender Orpington cockerel and he’s HUGE size wise but he still hasn’t done any of that stuff. In...

    Mucus buildup

    Hi, my gold laced orpington started laying two days ago. The problem started well before that but that’s just an age perspective. The last week or so she has been opening her mouth a lot like she’s chocking on something and trying to get it out. I’ve looked in her beak and there is nothing stuck...

    ISO DL Silver Barnevelder. Black Cooper Marans, Lavender Orpington

    Looking for Double Laced Silver Barnevelder. Black Copper Marans, and Lavender Orpington hatching eggs. Hoping someone sells (and ships to MA) 2 or even all 3 of these. Must be purebred and a good SOP-centered breeding program :jumpy:fl

    Help determing the sex of our 4ish week old buff

    Hi All! We are new to backyard chickens, but have been planning on this for a while. We picked up our pullets from our local Murdochs on Feb 21. They were only a couple days old when they came home with us. We have a mixed flock: 2 Buffs, 2 Sussex, and 2 Plymoth Rocks. I think one of our Buffs...
