    In Search of Photos of Your Chickens

    Hi! I am brand-new to raising chickens and realized not long after I got my chicks that they may not be what the feed store said they were. Also I read the hatchery they came from may not be the most reputable. I believe they are 4-5 weeks old and I think I have two Welsummers, three SL Polish...

    Who Laid This Egg?

    Hi everyone! So I have a mixed flock of 2 red sex link hens (about 4 years old), a 6 month old Ameracauna rooster, and a 6 month old Welsummer hen. My rooster's comb and wattle are very bright red and though he hasn't been crowing, he's definitely started to assert his dominance (at least over...

    My squad!

    Here's a pic of my girls coming to greet me as I come down to feed them scraps and treats. I just found out that I have Easter Eggers and not Ameracauna. Kinda bummed not getting blue eggs but I'm so fascinated by the beautiful olive eggs they have been laying.

    Can anyone sex these four, please?

    I have (finally!) managed to get hatchable eggs and incubator working in synch, and hatched these little beauties just three weeks ago. They are Welsumers, and this is the first time I have had this breed. Can any experts out there figure out whether I have 2 girls and 2 boys, or 3 boys and 1...

    cockerel or Pullet, Olive egger from welsummer mom x cream legbar dad:

    Hey guys. Boy or girl? Last weekend, I picked up what I was told was a 6-7 week old F1 Olive Egger (& a French Cuccoo Marans pullet!) The hen was a Welsummer and the Rooster was a Cream Legbar. It was the last and only one left at the farm, so I had nothing to compare it to in order to judge...

    Bumblefoot Help Needed

    Bumblefoot is no stranger to our flock, so it was easily recognizable when our three-year old welsummer (Summer) came down with it recently. Usually we take our ladies in to the vet to have it taken care of, but our avian vet is on vacation and the soonest appointment offered will be more than...

    Is this Welsummer a rooster?

    This Welsummer chicken is 10 weeks old, and has started to do a bit of crowing in the mornings. Pretty sure it's a rooster, but I am new to raising chickens, so I thought I would check with the experts first. We live in the city in Colorado Springs, so we will have to find a new home for him...

    San Jose CA- Silkie, Polish, Cochin, Leghorn, Welsummer Cockerels

    I've chickened out of keeping a bachelor pad for my accidental roosters, so I'm now looking for homes for some different juvenile cockerels: Hatched March 27: Two unknown cockerels, presumed to be one Brown Leghorn and one Welsummer (were sold as Welsummer Pullets); Cinnamon Buff Standard...

    Breed confusion

    Hi everyone, I hope someone here can help me figure out what kind of chickens I have! I purchased two of what I was told were Welsummer chickens when they were two months old, hatched on February 13th. I noticed a couple weeks ago that the earlobes turned white on them, so then I thought maybe I...

    Would anyone be interested in some rooster chicks in a few weeks?

    I have Three welsummer or barnevelder chicks (I don't know which ones are which) and one Golden laced wyandott/white rock mix. The welsummers and barnevelders are about five weeks and I was going to keep them for a few more weeks so they can grow up a little, but if you want them now that's...
