    These three photographs are similar, and I am not sure which one is the best to enter into the BYC 2021 Calendar contest. What do you all think? Please vote in the poll above, and feel free to explain why. Edit: I am adding a cropped version of #3. This will be Photograph #4.

    Is it normal at this age?

    So, I don’t know the breed, but is it normal for an almost 12wk old rooster to already be getting jiggy with some hens? I was spending some time with them and El Diablo just went up to our 4wk old Cornish cross hen and grabbed the neck feathers and went at it. I’m new to all this so I don’t know...

    3wk amberlink hen or Roo?

    Hello everyone! I didn’t realize that chicken math existed until we continued to buy more and more chickens. That being said, this little guy/gal is our 3 week old amberlink. That is what the sign said the breed is, but I don’t have a clue. This is our first go around with chickens and we love...

    Different feathers mean different gender?

    I know it’s super early to tell but I was curious. We have two sex link chicks and they are almost a week old. Phoenix is a little bigger than Inferno and the feathers are different. Does that matter that the feathers are different or could they both still be hens? The first photo is Phoenix and...

    Not sure the breed or gender, any guesses?

    So, I’m not sure the breed. My husband said Andalusian or golden laced Wyandotte but I really don’t know. Also, not sure the sex. Any thoughts? I really appreciate it! He/she is 6 wks old.

    The Hen House: What are they thinking?!?!

    Sooo I have a total of twenty chickens now and my first original ten are six weeks today. All of the twenty are outside enjoying the coop and run together. So far, everything is good, they all know their place and get along. Our coop is pretty big and my lovely original ten think they still need...

    6 wk cockerel???

    I know I’ve posted before about this chicken but I swear it’s a cockerel. The attitude, the size and the color of the comb and wattle makes me think cockerel but I am new to being a chicken owner so what the heck do I know lol All my other chickens have pale combs and wattles. None of them are...

    Are all three cockerels?

    I have 5wk old chickens and I think these three are cockerels. Am I right? Am I wrong? They seem to like each other at least. Sorry for the little fluff butt in there lol there is a barred rock, golden laced Wyandotte and I’m not for sure the breed of the white one.

    Is it ok if they stay in the run?

    I am a first timer here so please go easy on me! We finally finished our coop and run. The chickens all love it outside in the run but won’t go into the coop. I tried putting them in the coop first and they all just ran out. I’ve even moved their food and water to inside but they won’t go in and...

    The Hen House

    As a first time chicken owner I really don’t know if what I’m doing is right or wrong or as long as I treat my chickens well and keep them happy, fed and a nice home all will be well. We used to have a Great Dane and she sadly passed, but we will be using the dog house we built for her as our...

    4wk Barred Rock Roo or Hen

    This is Oreo, my barred rock beauty. I was thinking she was a hen but her comb and wattle are pretty red and big. I don’t have a clue! I am a first time chicken owner and just wish I could get some of my chicks gender known. Don’t mind the dog in the background haha!

    Do you have a novogen? I was curious if you could post pictures. I just got one and it’s between 8-10 weeks old. It looks like a pullet but it has pointy tail feathers. I’m curious what your pullets and Roos look like. If you have any thoughts on mine please help lol.

    Signs of spring 🌷

    Seeing any signs of spring yet? We've had a pretty mild winter here so far in Scotland. You can never be sure if it's going to get worse (I suspect it will) but in the meantime I have blooms from this shrub that's growing out of one of the stone walls on the property. Seeing any signs of spring...
