    Hi all. I got 6 Ameraucana female chicks in April from McMurray Hatchery. One started crowing last week, and this morning was crowing non-stop from 6:00AM. I originally thought it was a dominant female, now I’m not sure. I can’t tell an exceptional difference in feathers other than the tail...

    My little Silkie roo has recently started doing something weird. He stands sideways towards me, drops the wing closest to me, and circles me.

Having one rooster is manageable, but having two with only 2 hens is becoming a challenge. This boy is big and...

Later, I soaked the feet in warm water containing Epsom salt and the scab around the finger came off. I...

    If you live in South Florida... He could be yours! His name is Ninja, and he is great with other chickens, people and cats. He is hand fed, tame, and very smart. His only problem: he likes to sing. And my neighbor is not a fan. Hatch day: July 8, 2020.
