Hello everyone! So I got eight chickens last June. Eight chickens, eight different breeds.
Before this little flock, I had an even smaller one of just four chickens. I liked them so much I just had to get more!
First, some chick pictures! Is there anything cutter than a chick?
Ok! Here are the girls!
Lizzie: A Barred Rock
Lizzie recently passed away but she was my favorite in the flock.
Olive: A Red Star
A very good chicken if very food driven. I had a Red Star in my first group of chickens and a loved her so much I just had to get another!
Sleepy: Double Laced Barnevelder
Sleepy is very shy but at the same time, very sweet!
For some reason, I have no good pictures of Raven! She is high in the pecking order but not mean at all.
Daisy: Buff Orpington
Daisy is such a sweet chicken! Always gentle, always nice. Not to mention, she is gigantic!
Piper: Easter Egger
Piper is very... curious. She is also rather stupid. She picks things up a lot slower than the other chickens.
Nutmeg is the most skittish chicken I have. However, like Sleepy, she is actually very sweet.
Speckles: Speckled Sussex
Speckles was a good chicken until this winter. Then she turned completely evil! She torn up poor Raven's back. It was absolutely awful.
If you would like to hear more about my chickens, I have a blog! You can find it here, at http://clairesfreeasabird.blogspot.com/ .
