@Hedz82 no def no Hylines for me. The laying flock are New Hampshire x Golden Buff, a lovely big breed...so tame too. Those Hylines look like zombies...I have one that I swear has the personality of a plank. I keep saying I'm gonna eat her as she lays about twice a week but I don't have the heart.
I'm pretty sure not many people have a one eyed rooster and a one legged chicken. Zoe with one leg is doing so well. They are such awesome pets and can't wait to get let out and follow me around the veg garden.
Oh gorgeous pics orangegrove!!! does your dog try to play with your chooks as well? My boy is so sweet and always sniffs them and wags his tail at them and is really gentle and friendly, and my hen actually lets him sniff her head and holds still! and when I am not available she goes and lies next to him, its like he's part of the flock. so so sweet!
Shame how did your girl lose that leg? She looks in great condition otherwise! And what a gorgeous roo!
