I just joined, and I'm also new to chickens so I figured I'd post. I'm Karla, and I live in the northeastern part of BC, Canada. My hubby and I bought our first house last summer and intentionally bought in an outlying community in our area so that we could have backyard chickens. Someday we'd like to upgrade to an acreage and have more, and other farm animals as well, but we're starting small.
I have two chickens at the moment - we're allowed 6 in the village we live in. I had 6 originally and unfortunately lost 4 to a torrential downpour last Sunday. They were too young and I didn't get outside to herd them back into the coop until it was too late. So I've got the 2 left and as I'm going to be away for a week in the near future, I'm waiting until after we get back to get anymore.
I know that of the two I have left, one is a cuckoo maran, but I'm still trying to figure out what the other one is. I bought them at a "critter and craft sale" and had 6 different breeds, and while I remembered most of what I had bought, I couldn't remember which was which. Does anyone know what this pretty little girl is? I know that I had had a welsummer, a bielefelder, a cuckoo maline, an easter egger, the cuckoo maran (who survived), and I can't remember what the sixth was. She kind of looks like a faverolle, but I don't remember getting one of those, and from the pics I've seen online it's the males that are this colorful, and she was confirmed as a hen for me by the vendor.
Link to my Instagram since I can't seem to figure out how to upload a pic... maybe I'm too new of a member?
