We did have 150 at last count in the spring. We lost a bunch over the summer. (Probably about 20-30). DD and I need to do an official count. Believe it or not, we know when one is missing. About 2 weeks ago we were missing a cockerel. We walked the property and looked for signs of feathers, blood, what have you. We did not find him. Best part about it is that it wasn't a hen. Probably a hawk took him out. We have red shoulder hawks and other type hawks that swing by daily looking for a meal. It's a chance we take by letting them free range.
Takes us usually 2 hours to feed and water. We don't have running water back there, so have to fill gallon jugs & wheelbarrow them back to the back. Plus we have 1 cat, 1 dog, and 9 rabbits. We do need to do a reduction in numbers on chickens and rabbits
@minihorse927, Yes, they all came out of that itty bitty coop.....Yeah.... That little coop thing was given to me by a friend. So far, its been used mostly as a rabbit tractor. We alternate rabbits and they get to hop around and eat grass. They love it. Some get more turns than others because some are easier to handle.
