I got my first 4 chickens in late march from a breeder in the area.. From what I was told I got 2 isa browns, a black orphington, and a handsome hershey rooster. One brown laid an egg while being transported home lol and has every day but 2. I call her Miss Prissy, (anyone get the reference lol)
I got 6 more hens from what i think was a chicken mill or something. They were horrible looking when i got them they were molting something awful. Didnt even really know how to be chickens. It was sad But now their feathers are growing in and they are getting along with the other hens and the rooster is being good with them including mating them. One problem i am having is my black orphington is very bossy still. Her name is Rhonda not sure why it just stuck.
Last week i got 3 eggs, squeal lol and today i got 4. Im do excited. Just got to figure out breeds and whos laying The eggs.
My girls love treats but found out today how the little girl in Jurassic Park 2 felt when she was swarmed lol. We had chicken wings last night. I kept the bones in a ziploc bag. I was barely out the door when 9 hens came running at me full speed and had me surrounded before the bag was open lol. Never seen them go quite that nuts and they steal from poor hershy the rooster too lol.
We are in Southern Alberta on an acreage where there is lots of free ranging for them and built the cadillac of hen house for them lol. Well what my pocket book can afford lol.
