Hi! I'm Boots & this is my flock.
I have a large flock of 250 chickens, because I run a small free-range egg business. I'm in my 4th year of business & 8th year of chicken raising. It's hard to know every chicken in such a big group, but I have my favorites that I like to cuddle.
The Mille Fleur bantam girls (names pending), with a Polish mix. These are little sweethearts; they love to talk & eat out of my hand.
Pretty Welsummer girl that I got in a "mystery clutch" of eggs from someone else.
Lavender Orpington cockerel. I need to get him some Black Orp girlfriends.... started with five Lavenders, but four were cockerels and the fifth is a midget, so no breeding stock there.
Beautiful eggs from my girls. (turkey eggs in front)
Evening treat to entice everyone back to their runs for the night, "Molt Muffins".
