Hey Everyone!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

So.....my name is Martha, I live in Scotland and I currently own four pet chickens!, they are-Omlet(5), Bimbo(4), Mabel(probably about 1 and a half?..), and Betsy(same as Mabel).

 

We got Omlet when she was about a week old along with a light-sussex cockerel who we mistook for a girl, and named Yoko. Omlet is a black rock, and the story of her friendship with Bimbo (no-we're not being cruel with that name), is quite moving.

Bimbo is a fancy chicken, although I'm not sure what breed so maybe when I upload pics you guys could help?. We first got Bimbo along with another chicken called Cheeky (because we couldn't keep Yoko and we didn't want to leave Omlet alone), although Cheeky unfortunately passed away awhile ago when she got mareks disease :hit. Cheeky was a common brown hen and very curious, and from the moment she arrived she took over and bossed everyone around like nobody's business. Bimbo was at the bottom of the pecking order, because back then she was a tiny little thing, but Omlet (who had made friends with Cheeky) took Bimbo under her wing, and would often be seen sitting in some corner with Bimbo. Now that Bimbo is bigger, Cheeky is dead and the two new chickens are wandering about the place, Bimbo is top of the pecking order and looks after Omlet, as she is now older and not as capable of defending herself.

Mabel and Betsy are the two new chickens, Mabel is a browny-reddish colour and Betsy is white. They are very young, and often make me laugh as Mabel has a habit of pecking my feet and Betsy has a habit of strolling up to me and then running away. :cd

(that picture by the way-is just like Betsy when she freaks out!)

Anyway guys, I hope we can all get to know each other's hens, and I hope you enjoy reading about my tiny flock as I enjoy reading about your birdies! :jumpy

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Black Rock is a label under which hatcheries in the UK commonly market their Black Sex Links. They are my favorite hens as they are very friendly and hardy egg laying machines. I raised Black Rocks (Black Sex Links) for years (along with dozens of other breeds and hybrids) and they have been my best layers, consistently churning out more than 300 large brown eggs per hen per year. :o) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

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

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
