They are older girls from my first years. We only had feed store laying hens for the first 3 years, barred rocks, buff orpingtons, production reds, black sex links, and speckled Sussex. I still have a large pen that holds that original flock, and they will never be sold, they are all named. As they age out, that pen will be converted to AMs or BCM, but for now they are my tie to how it all started
Sound like my start... but I'm having issues with leaving my eclectic nature behind, or just controlling it. I'm not sure I'll ever be a breed farm. I do dig my momma birds. The two sussex's I have were my first broodies. They're names are Ms. Priss and Penelope.
