I have several. I am not entirely sure how old my chicks are. I have 8 total. I was told that five are capons (I didn't know until a few minutes ago that these poor things are castrated dude chickens, how sad is that) and three bantams. My three banties are fine. Four of my five others is fine. The fifth one who we named Lucy before we knew she was a he, has issues. So here's my stupid questions. Brace yourself. I know dogs, but chickens, not so much 1. The five capons are a golden/pale yellow color with a tan-ish comb. I can't post pictures because my computer is a POS. I don't know what breed they are-can any one tell me based just on my description? (Told ya. STUPID questions!) 2. Keep in mind that these are my very first chickens, aside from the frozen kind that you buy at Wal Mart. Just today I noticed that these guys have developed boobs. I mean, Dolly Pardon would be proud of these things. But they have all developed them only on one side? what? 3. They all have grand feathers-all 8. However, the five capons have funky, brittle feathers on their undersides. I am changing their bedding twice daily and doing my best to keep them dry & clean. Is there anything else I can do. These chickens were born about a week before Easter. 4. My one "ill" capon has been pretty much kicked out of the flock by the others. The bantams don't mess with him/her/it but the other capons try to kill it. At one point I thought this poor bird was going to die (Lucy is his/her/its name). I separated Lucy from the others and put the bantams in with him/her and now she is healing, but is stunted. Is that normal? No matter what we do with the other four capons, Lucy (likely to become Lucifer if he is in fact a he) will be a pet. The rest will be dinner. If I can think of any more stupid questions (and I know I will) I will post them. Thank y'all in advance for your help. I have always wanted chickens, but I had planned to research this more before I committed to it. These chickens were sort of thrust upon me, thanks to a busy bodied mother. HELP!
