New to raising chickens for Gloucester, va - Page 2

post #11 of 26

Welcome from Washington!

I was only going to get five chickens originally. In adult hens I currently have 1 BO, 1 NHR, 1 RO, 4 EE's and 1 BR. In baby chicks I have 4 BLRW's, 2 FCM's, 1 Delaware, 1 SLW, 1 BJG, 2 SS's, 1 BO, 1 WCP, 1 GSL and 2 BA's. That only adds up to five, right?

I'm in Gloucester VA also.  There is a man in town, Don Davis that will have chicks soon but not quite yet.  I will be seeing him this week and will update you on what he will have.  Always check craigslist also.

Dot ( who cannot figure this site out yet so email me at ddick12@cox.net)


I appreciate it Dot.  I'll send you an email, so we can contact each other.  Thanks.

I appreciate the warm welcome.  Hope to learn a lot from the posts and maybe meet a few folks at the swaps.

I'm in the upper end of King and Queen and I'll have some Barred Rock and Buff Orpington chicks hatching next weekend. If you're interested just send me a pm.

Plymouth Barred Rocks, Delawares, New Hampshires, Rhode Island Reds,  Bantam Barred Rocks and Bantam Buff Brahmas. But love my mutt bantams too.

Hello from the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia,  I've raised Buff Orpington's and Black Australorp's for a short time and if you want pet and eggs both breeds will be great options for you... They both are very docile breeds (my 5 year old would pick them up and sing to them and they seemed to enjoy it).  Both are also champion layers of nice size brown eggs, although in my limited experience the BO's have a stronger broody streak so you might get less eggs if you get lucky or unlucky to get a good broody hen.  Good Luck and Enjoy!
