Winter is coming

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My 2 year old daughter became obsessed with chickens on our neighbors farm. So he gave us eggs and an incubator and now I have 13 buff orp/ black australorp crosses. 8 are males and vary in color from black to red to white splash. All have brilliant green and blue irridescent sp feathers.

Clearly I cannot keep 8 roos but I'm getting attached and they're really beautiful. They are 16 weeks old today

Anyone in Connecticut who wants to adopt old reach out.

I'm anxious to downsize their coop as well and I'm looking for plans if you all know of a site

Ive been reading your blogs for 6 months and you all got me thru this process. I'm happy to finally engage wth you all

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

There is such a glut of roosters needing  new homes, it is very hard to place them.  People answering ads for free birds, tend to have them for dinner.

It sounds like you had a pretty successful hatch with the fertile eggs, congrats! Bet your daughter found it all pretty amazing.
