The start of the chicken adventure

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi my wife @lynneb and I have just started hosting a flock. We have:

 

Pita Pinta -3
Sicilian Buttercup
Cuccoo Maran
Golden Wyandotte

 

 

I built this for them to live in using The Garden Coop plans:

 

 

We are totally loving sharing our yard with them.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Looks like rooster damage (bare back) on black hen (right side) next to pita pinta..  Maybe you can get a hen apron for her to protect her back  and give new feathers a chance to grow in.

Thanks, you have a keen eye. Sicilian Buttercup - Fiona, Cuccoo Maran - Dharma,Golden Wyandotte - Eva All came from a very nice grower who had about 100 free range pullets. Two of the three had some tail feather damage. They are re growing already. Should be back to normal soon. Cheers, Jeff
