2014 Hatch #3

Last week more babies hatched. Most of the chicks hatched so far this year are coming with me tomorrow to the Oregon Spring Poultry Swap. I’m very excited about the swap. I’ve been to a couple swaps as a customer, but this is the first time I’ll be there as a vendor.

Chicken Combs: Single

One of the most recognizable parts of a chicken is its comb. Most people know that the comb is the (usually) red fleshy part at the top of a chicken’s head. Not all combs are the same, though. The American Poultry Association lists 9 different types of combs in their American Standard of Perfection.
