I grew up in Queens, NY, then moved up to the "country" in CT. Never had time for chickens then. Now we live in Prescott, AZ, and just got our first chickens, 5 9 month old hens, on Saturday. They're doing great!
I have some questions though...two breeds I'm not sure of what they are. I have a little Leghorn, what I think is a Barred Rock and then two of one unidentified breed and one of another. Posting pictures...any help ID-ing will be appreciated!
Our very first egg, laid the day after we got our hens!
I think the black and white one is a Barred Rock. The one in the back is black and rust, really pretty. Then I have two of the one to the right. I'll upload a better picture.
Here's mystery hen number 2. Pretty, isn't she? I have two of these.
And just for fun, here's the set up for these lovely ladies. For a city girl, I think I "done good!"
Today we're bringing electricity to "the coop" and when the ground thaws out I'll have a spigot nearby. Hauling water ain't so much fun when it's cold outside!
