    I recently purchased 4 baby Easter Egger chicks, and were told upon purchase that they were all pullets. Unfortunately that was not the case because I now have 2 hens and 2 roosters.

    Hey, I have 2 Desi Misri hens and 1 Bantam rooster. They are kept in a (4ft x 2.5ft) coop from sunset to sunrise but are open and free to run in the large lawn all day long. The hens were brought in just two days ago. I have placed a milk crate inside the coop with grass in it to create a...

    New hens x 8 New Cockerels x 2 One of the Cockerels/Roosters, called Puffball must be the reincarnation of Bruce Lee. He is lightning fast, walks around you as if you're in a boxing ring with him, then goes for you all Kung Fu style. Now I've tried talking to him and negotiating but to no...

    I ordered RIR's from a hatchery. They're 9 weeks now and there's one that's quite a bit smaller, much lighter and developed a brighter comb and wattles really early. Is it a small rooster, different breed, a bantam??
