In the Brooder
- Sep 10, 2012
Hi, I'm new to chickens all together. I adopted 3 Rhode Island Red "chickens" from my local shelter. This was about 2 months ago. They are pretty big. This morning I heard a suspicious crow like sound ... and what I thought was just a bump on Edina's leg now has a matching bump on the other leg. They all have beautiful green iridescent feathers on their butts and are very shiny in general. So it occurred to me ... maybe there's a reason I've never seen an egg. I have 5 others, but they're very young, that I got from a local breeder. These pictures are not ideal, eek, but I wondered if anyone could offer me some guidance. I can't legally keep roosters so this will be very sad if I have to rehome them.
