Hello! I'm fairly new to the chicken world, started last April with my first chicks ever! I have an interesting chicken situation in that my friend and I share our flock, we live down the street from each other and so it works out well for us. We started out with 5 chicks, we now have 9 birds...we just can't help it! We have a bit of a smorgasbord of breeds and ages. We have two Barred Rocks, Maude and Gertrude, one Rhode Island Red, Luetta, one Ameraucana, Jolene, one Gold Laced Wyandotte, Ethel, one Silver Laced Wyandotte, Lucille, and the three newest, a Cornish hen, Ingrid, and two unknown chickens, Hilda and Florence(who we suspect is a roo)!!! The original girls have started laying within the last month and a half or so and we're now getting a solid 4 eggs a day!
The new bunch
I don't have current pictures of the originals. I will take some and add them tomorrow!
Here's a more recent picture, the girls love their new roosting bars!
Everyone except Hilda who is being broody in the hen house, I have moved her to a kennel in the garage, not only is it cold but she had picked everyone's favorite box, and being a newbie everyone pecked off her new feathers that were just coming in since I got her from a friend that was having a problem with her getting in fights and loosing all her feathers.....ugh!
