My original flock was from ideal poultry and consisted of
3 Buff Orpington pullets. (one was a roo) gave him away at a few weeks old.
1 Black Cochin pullet (she was supposed to be a roo)
Two mallard ducks. Both are drakes. They were all hatched July 7.
I then bought two black chicks from a local farm. They were around the same age.
I really wanted eggs so I purchased two production reds that were two years old from a local farm.
On a whim I bought 4, 5 month old OEGB pullets and a roo.
I really wanted more eggs so I traded a pair of Buff American Geese for a brown laying hen, a laying Colombian Wyandotte, and a 5 month old black Astralorp
I feel like I'm at my max now.
My youngest are 15 weeks so I'm waiting for those, my now 6 month old OEGB and my black astralorpe to start laying.
