Thought I would share.
I really like the way this guy is turning out. He is becoming protective of his hens at around 5 months, and just developing a personality. A silver.
He also must attack this guy about every other day.
He is backup. I feel I could have made a better choice, but wanted to keep a charcoal for some reason.
The best hen. A silver.
As you can see I have some AR to deal with. Down to 5 hens out of 14. Some predator loss, but more to coccodiosis. It has been a learning experience. Had chickens about 6 years, but havent raised chicks for a long time. Not ever in this quantity.
6 more hens are on the way.
