    Meet the flock + need your help on roo watch!

    Hello all, new chicken mama Cassie here. I ordered 11 pullets from MMH that are now almost a month old, so of course I am now playing the paranoid “pullet or cockerel??” game. I thought I’d introduce the ladies and see if any of you experienced eagle-eyes notice something I hadn’t, especially if...

    Is the breed accurate?

    I picked up a few hens since I'm planning on splitting my flock by size and my roo needed more ladies. The lady told me two were Welsummer hens and two were cuckoo maran crosses. I don't particularly care about the breeds, if I have barnyard mixes that's totally fine with me as there's no plan...

    Sex-Link using Legbars

    I have hatched two rounds of Welsummer (rooster) X Cream Legbar chicks. This should produce sex-links. The chicks I suspect are males have very small head spots compared to other sex-links I have seen. What would cause them to not be as defined? My stock is from breeders and not hatchery...

    I have 2 eggs in the incubator, hatching in 1 week. The eggs are from a partridge Welbar rooster over a Barred Rock hen. when this cross is done with a welsummer, the chicks are sex linked. Is this also Going to be the case over the welbar? Or is the extra barring going to change things? In my...

    Do all Wellsummers look like hawks?

    I’ve noticed that as my Welsummer chicken, Cinnamon aka Cinnie Minnie, has started to look like a Hawk. I just mean her pattern, colors, and even her beak has a black spot reminiscent of a hawk. Were they bred to mimic the appearance of hawks as a way to deter hawks or was this just random?

    Welsummer or Old English Game??

    I was research online to figure out what kind of chicks I got. All the chicks on the perch are from the same clutch from one hen. Their mom was very aggressive and raised them very well as free range birds. I narrowed down to welsummer because of the stripe going through their eyes but one one...

    Bantam Welsummer or Bantam Brown Leghorn?

    Some odd circumstances have left me with a mystery, straight run bantam. (The rest of my chicks shipped today, it won't be alone for too long) I think I've narrowed it down to being either a Welsummer or a Brown Leghorn. I'm really hoping for a Welsummer hen because I know that Leghorns can be...

    Is this a roo?

    This little chickie seems more bold than the rest. Jumps at me and pecks at me and chest bumps the other chicks. Won't run away when I reach for him/her (which is nice because my kids & I like to hold them). Is it too early to tell if a roo? It is one of 12 chicks of various breeds including 4...
