Hello everyone, I hope all is well.
I have two barred rock girls who are 20 weeks 1 day old named Chica and Adaline. They were born on July
4th and I had given up hope of them laying this year because of the time change and how under developed
they had been at 16 weeks. Well four week s later and they have grown out their combs and wattles and
they are a bright red most of the time (sometimes it fades and then boom bright red again!) They are
eating an all flock with oyster shell on the side because i also have 5 twelve week old girls in the coop with
them. Well this morning as i was doing my regular routine, when my top of the pecking order pullet Chica
did a semi squat! I could not believe my eyes so a few moments later i tried to touch her again and she
completely squatted!! I was so happy and gave her an extra treat. I know it does not sound like much but i
am a first time chicken mommy and they are like my babies so i am so very proud of my little Chica!
