    Hens Not Laying

    About 1 and 1/2 months ago I got 4 bantams (2 silkies, 1 chamois polish and 1 pekin). The farm I got them from stated that all their chickens are from 16-20 weeks old when sold.

    Possible Polish Roo?

    Hey guys! I recently got this little bantam from a friend of ours and was wondering 1. If you could confirm the breed, and 2. If you could tell if it was a roo or hen just yet. I’ve never had good luck with bantam hens so I’m kinda leaning toward roo.

    Symptomatic hen, can't account for illness

    I have a VERY sick bantam buff laced polish hen (frizzle). She is 1.5 years of age. On Friday it was warm and I let the chickens out to free range. She was fine and running around like the little spunk she is. Yesterday, Saturday, I found her crouched, wings down, head down, backside curved...

    Bumble foot that won't go away

    My polish hen is about three years old and has bumble foot. She weighs around 5 pounds maybe even less and we've been treating her with oral amoxicillin, epsom salt soak, betadine soak, and antibiotic creams. She does not have a black scab anymore and we've popped some of the infection out. It's...

    Do polish bantams do well in the winter?

    I am new to having chickens so the upcoming winter will be my first. I have 4 standard hens (they are 10 weeks old), a Cornish, and two polish bantams (a rooster and a hen, 17 weeks old). I tried to do some research and it sounds like chickens are fine in the winter as long as they have a nice...

    So I’ve adopted this crowned polish bantam chick, a friend found her in a parking lot abandoned. She couldn’t keep her so I offered. I have two birds already, (a red and a naked neck)and they get along great. I’m just concerned about whether or not they’ll eat along or they’ll hurt my lil girl...

    Hello all! First I must say that I’ve been using backyard chickens for YEARS but this is my first time posting. Such a helpful forum, I’m so appreciative of all of you. A few days ago, I noticed that my polish girl was struggling to walk, kinda flopping around the garden. When she was a...

    6 week bantam polish color and gender?

    Hi! I was wondering if anyone could tell me what coloring my fabulous 6 week old bantam polish will end up being and your guess on Cockerel or pullet? I can't see any hint of comb under all that crest! I've never had a polish before and I'm in love.
