    Caging the Roosters

    Hello! I have two sets of chickens that I hatched. One batch the end of June and the other in July. I recently separated all the roosters we are going to butcher from the rest of the flock.

    2 Roosters in Need of Re-homing

    Hello! So we have 4 roosters, and not enough hens. So as much as it kills me, we're going to have to get rid of 2. They're both good roosters, one is a black Silkie, and is about 24 weeks old, and the other is about a year and a half, and is a Silver Duckwing OEGB. (Both are bantams). Einstein...

    Show off your EEs or Ameraucanas

    Hi everyone. I got my first EE’s 7 weeks ago, and they are beautiful looking. I ordered 4 pullets and 1 cockerel, but I’m suspecting that 2 are cockerels and 3 are pullets. I want to see if anyone has roosters or hens that looked like them, but I also just want to see all the gorgeous roosters...

    Easter eggers, roosters or hens?

    So today at Tractor Supply they had Easter Eggers but they were straight run. 😩 I already have a monster of a rooster so I don’t need any more. The lady working said she can “somewhat” determine the sex by the wings but couldn’t guarantee it. Some had very distinct wings and some it was hard to...

    Did I buy roosters?

    When I bought my 4 chickens they were labelled as pullets, but I'm having my doubts about that. The two brownish ones (Blue & Echo) are Golden Comets, and the two black and white ones (Delta & Charlie) are Easter Eggers. They're all right around 2 months old, but any thoughts on if they're hens...

    Free Rhode Island Red Rooster

    We have two roosters needing a home. One 10 week old Rhode Island Red and one 10 week old Buff Orpington. Needless to say, the Rhode Island rooster is a biter, but, definitely going to be a beautiful bird. Although, if he stays here he's going to end up in the dog bowl. I live in Orono.

    Food for Flock

    As I am starting my own flock, we had added Cockerels. We know the hens NEED calcium, so we provide them with Layer feed and offer Oyster Shells in a dish 24/7 access, BUT now that we have Roosters, what do we feed the whole flock? We have Layer Feed, Scratch Grains, and Oyster Shells. Do we...
