    I don't want to get rid of my rooster!

    I am new to chickens and have a small flock of 7 hens and 1 rooster (started with 8 non-sexed chicks). My Rhode Island Red rooster "Eric" is fairly tame. He has chased my boys, but they are learning to stand up to him, plus my German Shepherds protect them (non-violently and semi-hilariously)...

    Oops, Two Roosters- need advice

    Hello, when one of my hens became broody, my kids convinced me to get three chicks to make her happy. I ended up with a straight run and two grew up to be roosters. They’re about seven months old now and crow back and forth nonstop. They get along with each other as brothers and rarely...

    Do Barred Plymouth Rock roosters have blue tail feathers?

    I am deciding which breed rooster to add to my flock and saw a beautiful photo online of a BPR roo that had some blue tail feathers. Is that common or did someone cross BPR with another breed to achieve that? thanks!

    Pretty sure it’s a boy but the comb hasn’t grown very much so now I’m not sure. I’m also pretty sure it’s a lace wyandotte

    Roo or Pullet?

    Hi, I have a Plymouth rock chicken. I thinks he’s a rooster but he’s not crowing like the others and he’s much calmer and is never involved in any of the pecking. I know some hens of this breed have combs and wattles so I’m unsure. What do you think?

    We have three beautiful Black Copper Maran cockerels who were hatched in September who are getting ready for their own flocks. They free range and have been raised on non-GMO feed.

    Frost bitten rooster

    I’m sorry this is probably a common problem among northern chickens but my rooster has a blister on the top part of his comb and the entire comb is looking quite pale. We had a night that reached 3F the other day and last night maxed out around 10F. I’m assuming it’s the start of frostbite. What...
