    Rhode Island Red White Tips

    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. I feel this may be molting due to age and we haven't seen her go through it but the...

    Rhode Island Red laid a white egg?

    Our RIR chickens are 15 months old and one of them laid a white egg today. Has this happened to anyone else? I read it could be because of molting but I also read that molting doesn't usually start until 18 months. Would love some insight from anyone knowledgeable in this. :-) thank you!

    Air sac disease

    Hi everyone! I have a 5 and a half yr-old hen that has on and off gape worm symptoms, swollen sinuses, gout, and who knows what else. These started from the age of 3 or 4. She stopped laying when she was 3. She has all of these problems, yet she's still alive, which is quite a miracle. I give...

    What breed are these?

    I was originally told that these hens were cinnamon queens (RIR x RIW), but now looking at other pics of cinnamon queens, they don't look the same as others. They are just over a year old and lay eggs almost daily.
