    Egg sex experiment

    Has anyone tried to pick out certain eggs in order to get more or only pullets (hens or females)? I'm testing this out. I pulled out the eggs that looked pointed and kept the roundest eggs under my broody hen. They started hatching yesterday and I hope this experiment works. Have you tried...

    The Coop Light "Trick" WORKS!

    Five pullets, second night as a chicken keeper. Night #1 I had to grab each girl and put her in the coop by hand, and I sat there until the auto-door closed. A little stressful for all of us. So I did my internet sleuthing and read that putting a small light inside the coop before dusk will...

    8 Week old pullet sneezing and wheezing. Advice?

    Just brought home two 8 week old barred rock pulleys yesterday and was planning to slowing introduce to my two full grown hens slowly over the next week or two. One of the pullers is occasionally sneezing and has a very slight wheeze. No obvious mucus drainage yet. She is eating and drinking...

    Chicken Confessional: I'm a little scared!

    I hope some of you experienced chicken keepers can remember all the way back to your first foray into the world of chickens and perhaps sympathize with how I'm feeling. Or maybe I'm nuts. I'm a born and raised city and suburban dweller -- I've never been on a horse, held a baby goat, milked a...

    Where can i purchase a single ISA pullet?

    My count ordinance only allows me to have 5 chickens. I have 4 of different breeds. I would absolutely love to get a SINGLE ISA pullet, or day old or young chick. Most HATCHERIES have a larger minimum order. Anyone know where I can get just one? I live in Maryland.

    Weirdly calm pullet addition

    So today I had two bielefelder pullets and one BCM cockerel I added to our main flock. There were 8 weeks. The cockerel while cute and lovely will probably be rehomed in the next two weeks but I didn’t want to separate him from his two gals to integrate them into the main flock and leave him...

    Help!! Predator got one of my pullets!

    Hello all. Long time no post here. Just lost my first pullet in a while to what clearly was a predator. Body is completely gone, no blood, only scattered and clearly torn out feathers left in her place. According to my dad he heard squawking last night, but he only told me this afternoon-ish...

    Pullets always watch one of my mature hens lay

    Has anyone experienced this behavior? Ever since they got comfortable with my older hens, they will always follow one particular hen into the coop to accompany her while she lays. What’s funny is she’s the top hen, and also the meanest. Seems harmless enough and I laugh when I catch it. I’m...

    Fox Causing Problems

    So today we lost two out of four of our new pullets. We had a total of nine chickens, 4 new chickens and 5 older. Just two weeks ago, we decided that the pullets were big enough to start free ranging at 12 weeks - especially since they were getting along great inside the coop with the older...
