New to Chickenhood

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone!

 

So glad to find a place with so many knowledgeable chicken peeps! (Get it? Peeps? :D  ;) sorry....now no one will probably talk to me...) sooooooooo, anyway....this is my first real chicken parenting.  I had a friend moving and she knew I was interested in getting some chickens, so I inherited hers--- 6 Ameracauna hens, 1 Golden Campine hen and one seriously dorky looking Polish rooster that they had affectionately named Peckerhead.  So, I have a nice little flock, they are currently free-ranging my five acres of yard and horse pasture and even giving me some eggs!  I'm sure I will have tons of questions as I go along so I'm so happy to have found you all! 

 

Thank you for taking me in,

Suzanne

Hi Suzanne , very nice to meet you.  Do you have much predation  in your locale?    Predators are always looking for a easy lunch.

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

I think hawks are the biggest threat here, but our flock stays under the trees and in the bushes for the most part!!
