    I recently got into chickens and I got 6 of them about 4 months ago. 5 hens and 1 rooster. They are doing great btw. A family member thought I needed more to go in the large coop I built so about 4 weeks ago I inherited 4 babies. So they are roughly 4 month apart. I have had the babies outside...

  7. Incubation & Hatching
    Hi all, I have a broody Silkie who has been sitting on some fertilised Silkie eggs I bought, and day 21 is coming up this weekend. She is now in her own section of the coop with her own food and water. My question is, I've heard that sometimes Silkie chicks can get tangled in their Mother's...

    We are brand-new to raising chickens for egg laying. We are expecting our baby chicks in the mail in the next day or two. As the temperature is expected to rise to 100+ soon here in Texas, I was wondering about having the brooder in our newly-finished coop as we have limited space inside the...

    We are getting ready to move the chicks feom their brooder to outside, but my husband and I keep reading conflicting information on the "how to". Some resources say to start in the run. Start by 1 hour the first day, 2 hours the next day and so on and then open the coop and they will wonder...

    I came home 3 days ago and a Red Legged Partridge was 'waiting' outside our duck pen. She had about 10 chicks with her. They were so tiny. I think they were hatched the same day. Then I left them alone. Today we came home to find her outside out back door and she all the chicks under her wings...

    I love to incubate, I would run them all year if I could get rid of the birds I hatch. I live in Idaho and notice that to move any birds I have to either trade them or give them away. Even then it's hard to get takers. :confused: Where are you from and how is the bird market in your area?

    Hatched our first set of chicks this week. Day 21 was on Tuesday. Most pipped on Tuesday night. All hatched on Wednesday night, except the last chick who hatched on Thursday morning. Two eggs were left. Neither had pipped but I knew one of them was alive as of day 17. Anyways, we waited until...

    Good morning!!! We bought a Brinsea Maxi II Fully Digital 14 Egg Incubator awhile back. We have approximately 50 chickens, but have never tried to hatch via an incubator. Upon opening the package, we were a little overwhelmed but figured we would give it a shot. I never thought with just adding...

    My one-legged chick Una is now six weeks old and doing great! Here she is: She and her brother Mo learned about mealworms today. Boy did that get their attention! They are some of the cuddliest birds I have ever had. They just want to sit in my lap and be petted all the time. Honestly...

    You might remember that one-legged chick I posted about, Una. Guess what? Today Una and Geronimo turn one month old! And guess who is more likely to climb up on my shoulder and flap around in my hair? Hint: it's NOT the two-legged baby cockerel! Look at this girl. Look at that strong leg...
  18. What Breed/Gender is This?
    So a few weeks ago I bought chicks from Tractor Suply. I was told that they might be Red Rangers. However the girl helping us was young and didn't seem to know too much about chickens. Now that they are getting older they are starting to look more like RI Reds since they are very dark in color...
