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

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

    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.

    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 am in Seattle city limits and can't have roosters. Two of my four month old white silkies from the straight run I got them from are crowing and have to go soon! I would love to trade them for hens but mostly just need them out!

    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??
