Chickens and Roosters

Parent Category: Birds
Everything about eggs,chicks,hens and roosters. From nutrition, health and general care. If you have a chicken question, this is the place for it.
Depending on the breed, it should take around 5 to 6 months for achicken to become fully grown.
The hen breed determines the type of egg it will lay (white, brown,multi, etc. A hen will lay eggs without a rooster, you only need arooster if you want to have baby chicks.
The difference is a chicken rooster are only male. Peafowl is thebreed name for both male and female, a male is called peacock, afemale is called peahen, their babies are referred to aspea-chicks.
Yes, though it is much less severe than turkeys. There is a 10%chance for a chicken to die of blackhead disease.
Chickens can freeze to death, yes. I have chickens of my own andone winter a hen of mine refused to go into the coop. Therefore shefroze to death.
It pumps blood into the veins of the animal

If you mean during the time in which she is trying to hatch chicks,then the maximum amount in which she can leave her eggs for a quickbreak is about 1-5 hours at most, depending upon the temperatureand surroundings where the eggs are. The easiest way to judge is byletting your chicken have a break...
No, chicken ovules don't recognise rabbit sperm cells as beingcompatible.

Has he perhaps eaten something that he shouldn't have? I've hadthis happen about 3-5 times before and usually the case is that therooster ate something he shouldn't have and is undergoing symptomswith it. Most got through it quickly within the day and went onnormally, only one of my roosters has...
Chickens molt at about 18 months, precisely 1 year and 6 months.They typically molt during cooler and shorter days.
learn all you can about them and show her that you are determined and buy/build a chicken coup and find a place to get baby or adult chickens. They are also low matinence and fun i trained mine to sit on my shouldier like a parakett.and if you live in a neighborhood dont get a rooster their to noisy...
Genetic pattern of the breed of hen Maximum production of top-quality eggs starts with a closelycontrolled breeding program emphasizing favorable genetic factors.Sex-Links are the most productive brown egg layers be cause theyare a mix of two high productive breeds.

Different species are not cross fertile.
Run in to a wall and you get a fire type pikachu
Chicken coop, henhouse, chicken house.
yes they can some up too 6 years.
An old chicken is called a hen. There really is not a name for anold hen. Hens are female chickens also.
Sun feeds grains Chicken eats grains Fox, cats, members of the cat family, and humans eat chickens
I believe you are asking why chickens should not always be keptunder close confinement indoors. After all, many of us home-flockowners DO keep our flocks in one "room" or pen. I have one "room"for my current flock, and another pen for my growing flock. Manypeople do not like to mix young birds with...
I tried this experiment awhile ago, and it took about a week.
It shows whether the chick is male or female.
The heating element is just maintaining the set level and conditions are cooling it off quickly such as a draft. Check your heating wafer and replace or set the thermostat at a slightly higher temp.
You may not be able to see much for the first couple of days, butafter about day 3 or 4, you should be able to see a red spot andmaybe some veining working across the yolk.
Many young pullets lay a few "test" eggs as their reproductive system develops. Some eggs first laid are yolkless or mis-shaped. It takes a few days for the hen to start producing optimum size eggs typical for her individual breed.
Yes, they usually can. Sheep are not volatile creatures and neitherare chickens. They are both quite gentle. My chickens and sheep getalong quite nicely. Monitor those first few days of meshing themtogether and if there is no warning signs, then they are fine. Justbe careful if any hens with newborn...
Sometimes. There are hens that break and eat their eggs, andsometimes a rooster will do so as well. A hen that has this problemsometimes has to be removed from the flock. ANY egg that isnaturally broken, however, is fair-game for the chickens. The yolkand white are a rich source of protein, and the...
In a small farm chicken coop a few openings in the building and some passive cross ventilation will suffice. In larger coops, fans should be used to prevent both excess heat and ammonia build up.
Mostly lice, mites, and worms. Occasionally ticks depending onwhere you live. Anything else is considered rare.
There are more chickens than people because, chickens can multiplyfaster than a human can. On average a chicken can lay at least anegg a day when fertilized by the rooster. That's only the normalchicken. Some chickens can lay more eggs day than just one. It alsoonly takes a 21 days for a chick to...
It is pretty easy actually. When you hit the sticks to the drumyour task is done.
A person can take care of a bird egg, by keeping it warm. This canbe done through an incubator, and by turning the eggs often.
This is because the albumin has no colour when raw and when heat is applied it turns white as the proteins change.
Gumboro disease is a viral infection that affects young chickens.The symptoms of this disease include a droopy demeanor, ruffledfeathers, depressed mannerisms, and odd pecking behaviors in theearly stages. Later symptoms include hemorrhaging, bursal lesions,and dehydration.
To reduce mucus production which can clog the chickens nasal passages and cause coughing. Add two teaspoons of cider vinegar to each gallon of water provided. Do not over do this treatment as they will not drink water too heavily acidulated. Use this treatment for three to four days and do not...
Yes, you can by adjusting the temperature to higher than normallevels. However, this does come with serious consequences. With ahigher temperature, speedier hatching will occur but the risk ofdeformities will also increase drastically.
egg dahil di magkakaroon ng chicken kung walang itlog ajajaja
Chickens don't really get pregnant, they lay eggs instead! Once anegg has been laid, it generally takes about 3 weeks to hatch.
No. Not naturally but it can be done (rarely) when developed out of the shell. Fertilized double yolk eggs do not produce twins as the restrictive interior of the shell will not support the needs of two fully developed chicks.
The colour. Chickens come in all sorts of breeds and colours. In most cases, you cannot tell what the breed is just by colour. You need several breed identifier "markers" to tell what breed it is other than just colour.
There are manydifferent "bad egg" test floating around the internet. But I foundan article that says that these are not ways to test a "bad egg"but says that these are at best indicators of an aging egg. Here isthe list and the reasons that they are not very reliable. Anythingin the article is...
Professionals use a method called vent sexing. They squeeze the baby chicken to make them defecate and then observe whether they have a bump inside their vent. A vent bump means its a male, no vent bump means its a female. Some females do have small bumps, so they will only guarantee a sexing...
Cockfighting has no real benefits. The animals suffer from this abuse and the people are steeply fined for it. If you are asking why people do it, they do so for entertainment or to make money from gambling.
Chickens are very resilient, as long as infection does not set in he should adapt without any special attention.
Buff orpingtons are very nice and easy to tame.
If your stomach can handle it and you believe in yourself, then itis possible.
what are the drifferent type of poutry in the caribbean
Large eggs weigh between 2 and 2 1/4 ounces.
dont quote me on this but im pretty sure they were dinosaurs
Hay. Or Silage. Or Grass. Or Grain. Take your pick.
Nothing. You may gain a little weight if you don't excersize enough, but in reality, nothing serious will happen to you.
Yes, yolk color is just an indicator of what the hen's diet wasduring the formation of the egg. It has the same nutritional valuesas a normal yolk.
In the case of eggs, size does not matter. A fertilized peewee egg when subject to proper incubation conditions will take 21 days to hatch the same time it takes a jumbo egg to hatch under the same conditions.
Yes, some humans eat chickens, I'm pretty sure they don't just eat it whole, and alive, but they kill the chicken, and turn them into the chicken nuggets and chicken sandwich at Mcdonalds, etc.
if your talking about eggs they will die incubators must be at a very warm temperature usually ranging from 80 to 96 degrees fahrenheit i think.
The chicken came first. Because, then where did the first egg come from. And the first chicken came from God.
It depends on how broody she is, some are out and done as soon as the first chick hatches, some will sit another week.
Put it in a box or enclosed cage with a very powerful lamp.
Yes Both breeds have genetic traits desirable for meat and egg production.
Some hen breeds can produce over 300 eggs per year, with 'thehighest authenticated rate of egg laying being 371 eggs in 364days'[26]". Therefore for an average hen it would be from 250 to300.
It is probably because of a mineral deficiency. To fix that, you can buy oyster shell that has been crushed to feed them. And, if you want to, you can, after they start laying, rinse and bake the shell and crush them to feed to them so you do not have to keep buying shell.
a chicken you eat
Farmer John Brown(1832-1903) of Brookside, Georgia was the first to name the size of an average chicken egg. he said they should be about 2 oz. it should be 2 inches tall and 4 inches in diameter. He set this average of his own eggs after studying the eggs on his plantation in near by Silver Creek,...
Here are a few links about sexing chicks.
Animal cruelty. Same reason why dog fighting is illegal.
Bullying from roosters and other hens can cause fights that resultin bleeding if the comb is pulled. Frostbite is also a possibilityif their is colder temperatures than usual.
In warm climates anytime is fine. In northern climates where temperatures drop to near or below freezing most hatches are planned for starting in mid march for hatch in April or Easter time.
They should not float. Floating eggs indicate a large air pocket inside the egg shell which is the sign of a stale or bad egg. A fresh egg is heavy and should sink to the bottom of a container of water.
Yes. The spinal nerves that carry signals to the muscles can remain active for a short period, usually no more than a few seconds but as long as a minute. During that time, the leg muscles can propel a chicken for some distance. (In 1945, one famous rooster survived for 18 months without most of...
Turkey's five agricultural products include sugar beets, barley,grapes, wheat, and maize. They also grow cotton, oranges, andsunflower seeds.
no. black is dominant to white, and white is dominant to blue. the only sure way to get a blue chicken is to breed two other blue chickens.
Guineas begin laying eggs in April or May.
You can certainly try. It may be too long since fertilization. But if it's been handled right, you may end up with a chick.
A hen will cluck about 2 minutes before and after she lays an egg. that guy didn't even read your question properly. It takes 21 days but it can take up to 25/26
a rooster fertilizes chicken eggs by mating with a hen before theformation of a egg.
It might be time to intervene by now if the chick hasn't made anyprogress within those 24 hours. Begin by GENTLY peeling the shellaway from where the chick's beak has poke through. Stop immediatelyif it is wet and bloody around the site of where you are peeling.This means it is not ready and can die...
The shell, white and yolk.
It is possible that it is because the eggs that she is laying are larger than they should be, like if it is laying double yoke eggs. I would see if you are getting double yoke eggs, and if you are, than try to find out if it is her that is laying them. If that doesn't help than I don't know. I hope...
My flock is free range and the advantages are that the chickens are generally happier. Thay love to explore and walk around the yard. Belive it or not they even come on my door step and peck against the door intill i come out and give them bread. The chickens live longer free range. up to 14 years....
Almost anything will die when you remove it's head. For the most part, yes, chickens will die immediately. You may see some movement from nerves though. But there is one story I know of where the chicken lived. http://www.miketheheadlesschicken.org/story.php
An egger (layer) is raised to produce eggs. A broiler is slaughtered before it reaches egg laying age and is used for meat.
It really depends on the breed of chicken. It could take anywhere from a week to a month.
the dorking.faverolle,houden,sultan,and ALL silkies have five toes. Silkies by standard always have 5 toes. Some are hatched with 4 or 6 but that is a fault. Silkies are bantam sized by standard in the United States but are a large bantam. Outside of the U.S. they are by standard a large breed...
