My Horizon Hens
Our chickens came to us through a friend in 2010. Her small flock was becoming smaller and smaller thanks to foxes and hawks, so we agreed to raise some chicks for her. But, of course after raising the tiny fluff balls we couldn't give them back. Luckly, she let us keep them and our love for keeping chickens began!
Sunny is our Buff Orpington and top of the pecking order. A sweety pie but a little lasy. She is the bigest of our flock and she doesn't lay eggs very often because she always seems to be in a molt. She has a little bit of frostbite on her comb but with a bit of bagbalm we get through every year.
Julie is our Silver-Laced Wyandotte. She lays eggs almost every day and is 2nd on the pecking order. She is VERY talkative but in a cute way. She is usually the one to let us know if something is wrong. She has been attached by a hawk but didn't get any wounds.
Hazel is a red star. She is 3rd on the pecking order and very curious. She is an amazing layer and loves to dig up plants in our garden. She has been a victom of two hawk attacks but all they did was pull out some feathers.
Ceci is a Silver Speckled Hamburg. She is tiny compaired to the others but is not a bantom. She is shy and skittish but an amazing layer. She is the only one in our flock to lay white eggs. But also she loves to hide her eggs around our yard and under our deck. She is last on the pecking order.
