I call my little flock a "flick." I have a Buff Orpington, Welsummer, and I have no clue what our third little gal is. I got the Orpington and Welsummer from a breeder, but our mystery hen is from the local feed store. She was our original chick along with a lovely Barred Rock named Eileen. It turned out that Eileen was an Ike, so we found him a farm to live on. Our little black chick was left all alone, so we got her these two new friends ASAP. After only a day, they are all best buddies. She is friendly, a ferocious forager, and no distinguishing marks. She is all black with a hint of a white line down her belly. Any ideas?
They all moved into the coop three days ago and I've been sitting in my yard watching them be goofy for hours at a time. They have been wary of me and then yesterday evening, they all jumped in my lap for a pet. I'm new to having chickens, but it has been so much fun so far!
