    Too Many Roos - How to Best Cover Them for Cold Temps?

    I had some hens go broody last summer and sat on the eggs for a while. Then they abandonded them so I put the eggs in a brooder. Of the nine that survived, I got five roosters hatched this past August. I have a coop/run large enough for them all, but the roosters aren't getting along any more...

    We have 2 roosters. One small and one large one. Both the same age. We have 10 hens all about the same age as well. In November my big rooster got ahold of one hen and when trying to mate with her bit her neck too hard and broke skin. When we noticed it had been a couple days and the other...

    Who am I and what is my gender :-)

    Smaller 3 (2 brown and 1 black) are just shy of 5 months old and all the others are almost 7 months old. Ok we will have photo overload today in this thread. I typically know 100% the sex of the chicken. But when it comes to Easter Eggers I sometimes am clueless. I will post some Easter Eggers...

    Ancona hen with HUGE wattles and comb...

    She is my only white egg layer, and has been laying last year and just started up again. I know Anconas are supposed to have big floppy combs but hers are gimongous with super big wattles(see photo) and she looks like a rooster! She has also started to boss the other chickens around more. She is...

    Rooster circling a previous sick hen

    A few days ago we removed, what we thought, was egg bound hen. We took her inside and did all the tricks that we were told to do. She never passed an egg but she was pooping and looked better so we put her back in the coop. Immediately my rooster started to circle her. We left her in there...

    Possible Easter Egger Cockerel

    this is my first flock, and i’ve identified this “hen” as an easter egger due to the green legs, however the tail feathers are starting to make me think “she” is a “he”. Comb and wattle say hen (IMO) but like i said, first time raising chickens since i was 8-10 years old, so could use the expert...

    Rooster has runny nose and slight heavy breathing.

    Hello everyone! My rooster Brownie is 5 years old and today I observed that he was opening his beak a little bit to breathe (not always but from time to time though right now it has stopped) and was making light sounds while doing it. It sounded alarm bells in my head so I'm posting this. I put...

    What does your Rooster say?

    Call me naive, but I used to think all roosters would sound the same. And then I got chickens 🤭 I was surprised to hear different variations from each of 3 boys. It got me wondering how many variations are there? I'd love to know what your roos and cockerels say! Here's my 3 boys: Pedro, my...

    Prairie Bluebell Frizzle cross???

    Could this guy indeed be a frizzled prairie bluebell cross? I took him in yesterday for a standard frizzle project pen. The lady said he came from Tractor Supply in April and was an Easter egger. I know Easter Eggers are mixes but I always am curious what those mixes are when I get new birds...

    My 7 month old Cockerel Cuckoo Maran Comb Black

    His comb has a strange black thing on some of the tips, I’m not sure what it is. It is very cold outside, but he is a cold hardy breed, so I am not sure.
