This is so True! I tend to stay away from Treads at belittle new to chickens Folks.
I have not personally experienced this (to my face) but I have had very respectable private conversations with people about these things.
The main reason I asked was because I read a website that said a hen is either a female chicken over one year old or one that has started laying.
It's just easier to type "hens" because I have pullets not "pulleys".
And what you say about exclusion is true.
Every group has them. Hope everyone can appreciate my anecdote here.
My Imam told us once (or maybe I've heard it more than once, the guy's a comedian lol) that Islam is the most inclusive religion but Muslims can be the most exclusive people. This is true with all great groups and faiths...what makes anyone think keeping chickens would be any different!
Some are more prone to judge than others, I pray for their burdens to be eased. Amin.
It happens in all walks of life. But, as said in so many words, no one was born an expert at anything.
It does get a little old when a first time poster asks a question that has been answered a thousand times and the information could be found here or just googled.
And glad you're getting hen fruit for your efforts.
I thought about SCG today...
but would that hold a 50 pound turkey do you think? I bet a stray guinea would fit for sure!
Why do some things have to be so tough?! Ey
Pullet = baby chick
Hen = baby chick grown up and laying eggs. I don't care what the experts say.. I've called my girls..pullets, until they start laying, then I call them hens.
Some old farmers could care less..they call them chickens all their lives, Baby chicks, pullets, hens, cockerels, roosters...they don't care, they are chickens. Instead of .. look at that little chick...it's look at that little chicken.
I actually sat on the front porch this evening - noticed some little crawly things wandering around on me. Decided to check the fern basket that had housed a House Finch family. Mites, mites, and more mites - sprayed the basket with insecticide and then flushed it with water out on the lawn. Hope that I killed the mites and not the fern. They've nested in the fern baskets several times over the past couple of years without any problems. I'm not certain that they will be welcomed back.
Ugh crawlies, oh barf
It is the Show stuff that has the definitions. I think it is much easier to say Hen and Rooster. Rooster is frowned upon but acceptable.
It must make showing them easier.
