    Help! Please! Pecking order situation.

    Hello! This is long, I’m sorry, but I need help! The picture is of my babies, this post is about the adults. I’m having issues with my roosters. Before now, everyone got along, everyone knew the pecking order and was great. My littlest rooster (ayam cemani) was alpha, he was an adult when I...

    Roosters touching each other's beaks

    I have caught my roosters doing this a few times. They put their beaks together and stand there for over 5 minutes. They don't make noise or show any aggression. It is winter in Michigan so I'm not sure if they are cold? Bonding? Sleeping? Has anyone seen this?

    Clean Chickens vs. Dirty Roosters??

    Hi! Still learning the ropes here so forgive what might be kind of a stupid observation and question. I welcome your thoughts! In my limited experience, chickens are normally pretty clean. I know they have feather dander, take dirt baths, and poop everywhere (and step in it a lot, eww), but...
