But on to my Feed Store adventure. I went to pick up two more pullets (that are laying) as 3 eggs every two days is just not enough!!!! I had to buy "store bought" so we could have breakfast the other day. I came home with what I thought were three hens...... My first thought was that I had acquired a gray Silkie...... Then I found good pictures of Silkies online. Now I have no clue what "Frenchy" is. We did learn that Frenchy is a rooster. He crows louder than my other rooster, LOL!! Dorothy (the black "fluffy" one) is much fluffier that Frenchy and has more feathers on her feet than Frenchy......... Both have the ugliest malformed (compared to my other chickens) combs I have ever seen..... again no pictures that I could find online to give me a clue.
My third unidentified flying, feathered, egg laying (I hope) addition we named Sparky...... Her coloring is beautiful...... but she is extremely shy..... she'll let me pick her up and pet her, but when I put her down, she heads into a corner..... Doesn't go in the coop even at night. She goes into a corner made by the tarp we use for a windbreak around the coop.
Any ideas you can give me on the breeds and gender of my new flock-mates will be appreciated.
