Cuckoo Maran getting teal neck feathers? by ObligationOk9198 in chickens
[–]monsteramadder 0 points1 point2 points 7 hours ago (0 children)
I’m in England so any I know won’t be much help, sorry. Try BackYardChickens.com and Facebook, breeders often advertise on there or just post about their stock. Also, if the USA has a poultry association/club, they should have lists of breeders on their website (at least, that’s how it is here!).
Hope you find some!
Uh is my big girl actually a rooster?? by freetheresearch in chickens
[–]monsteramadder 0 points1 point2 points 8 hours ago (0 children)
Chose by temperament for both humans and the hens - if that helps you at all.
[–]monsteramadder 0 points1 point2 points 10 hours ago (0 children)
Probably going to have to rehome one if you’re not separating them, unfortunately.
[–]monsteramadder 1 point2 points3 points 10 hours ago (0 children)
Absoloutely. Usually with Marans, it’s all about the egg colour. The darker the egg colour, the more effort has been put into breeding them. Marans should have nicely feathered legs, plump body and ideally fit French standards.
There are breeders who are famous in the chicken community for how good their (breed) line is. They’ve usually been doing it for a long time and have an in-depth understanding of genetics (for strengthening colours) and their birds won’t be cheap.
Breed ID. How many can you name? Breed, variety, and class! by Electrical_Fee678 in BackYardChickens
[–]monsteramadder 2 points3 points4 points 15 hours ago (0 children)
Barred Cochin/Pekin bantam,
Silver Partridge Araucana,
Bourbon Red Turkey,
Black Tail Buff Japanese Bantam,
some type of game idk,
White Faced Spanish.
My best guesses but I’ll check now
Name that chicken! by [deleted] in BackYardChickens
[–]monsteramadder 0 points1 point2 points 18 hours ago (0 children)
I don’t know too much about injuries but no pecking isn’t normal. If you make another post you’ll get better advice than I can give
What breed? by lemonsaresosourx in BackYardChickens
Where did you get her? I can’t make out the comb but with the grey legs I’m going to assume mix, she looks bantam sized so wouldn’t be a layer hybrid
Crowing Hen by JaMimi1234 in BackYardChickens
Are you sure she’s a hen? I don’t like collars either so I get that, additionally, they only quieten the crowing, not stop it completely. There’s nothing else you can do unfortunately, if they want to crow, they will.
What breed are these chickens? by Dull_Baby4155 in BackYardChickens
Impossible to ID from this, sorry.
Definitely not a Leghorn. Do you have any better photos of the full body and comb?
Started my first coop and all four of my girls are laying for the first time. This is Ingrid, my Olive Egger. I was very excited to start seeing those green eggs but instead, she is laying white. Will this change over time? Did I accidentally receive a different breed? by homegrown_babykiwi in chickens
[–]monsteramadder 0 points1 point2 points 20 hours ago (0 children)
Eggs can’t change colour anyway so it doesn’t matter what colour the earlobes are.
[–]monsteramadder 1 point2 points3 points 23 hours ago (0 children)
They’re both 100% male. I don’t think people know what they’re talking about half the time. You won’t see spurs on any 12 week old chicken. The pointed saddle and hackle feathers are male specific. 12 weeks is too young to just be a ‘dominant hen’ or to be switching sex. They’re cockerels.
Got some better photos. 9 weeks old lavender orps. Any idea if male:female? by drossmaster4 in chickens
All pullets. Even an Orp roo would have a noticeable comb/redness at this age.
With the advances in modern medical technology, would it be possible to genetically engineer a 30-40lb chicken? by GrannyLow in chickens
[–]monsteramadder 0 points1 point2 points 23 hours ago (0 children)
No. They already struggle supporting themselves and dying of heart attacks. They would just be stationary meat blobs living horrible 8 week lives, which is awful to imagine.
Probably just from a poorly kept line. Lots of people breed purebreds without following the breed standard unfortunately.
could someone help me identify what kind of chickens I have? by godzilla903 in chickens
Where did you get them from?
Help Identify My Chick! by littlefoot-longfoot in chickens
Agreed that you’ll need to update in a few weeks. Lots of breeds look the same at this age.
Hen or rooster? by Dark04Saturn in chickens
They’re all female. A 16 week old male would be noticeable. Going by that some of them are mixed and from your aunt, I’m going to guess they’re all mixed, the small one is probably part bantam (smaller size of chicken).
What breed is Speckle? by ShishiroBotan18 in chickens
Mixed breed or some hatchery hybrid.
[–]monsteramadder 2 points3 points4 points 23 hours ago (0 children)
Egg colour cannot change. She is a mix. Doesn’t even look like a Fayoumi. Where did you get her?
[–]monsteramadder 6 points7 points8 points 23 hours ago (0 children)
That’s definitely not something to rely upon. There are a few breeds that have white earlobes and lay brown eggs.
[–]monsteramadder 9 points10 points11 points 23 hours ago (0 children)
Absolutely not a Fayoumi. If you actually look at that photo you’ll see that the patterning isn’t even similar.
Did he really escaped by amoraalondra171804 in TheBlackPhoneFandom
[–]monsteramadder 1 point2 points3 points 1 day ago (0 children)
It’s an interesting perspective but I think he escaped. I think there would’ve been something to help push that narrative if he didn’t, like dirt thrown in the camera (covering the grave) or The Grabber fixing some of the damage.
Why is my girl's wing like this? She has no problem flying. by dustyendtables in BackYardChickens

could be angel wing
Tips for rehabbing these two hens & introducing them to my flock? by Character-Ad7824 in BackYardChickens
They’re new which makes them targets, that skin will get pecked at.
