My Fabulous Flock!

    I currently have a flock of 4, I have an easter egger named Dinking, a buff orpington name Haddie, a welsummer named Pickles and a barred rock named Layla. They are all very sweet and come running to me whenever I call there names.They were all born last March and are 10 months old now. Haddie has never layer an egg and pickles stopped laying eggs since she was attacked by a raccoon in September. So right now I am just getting 1 or 2 eggs a day, from my barred rock Layla and my Easter egger Dinking. 2 eggs is still enough for my family though, we always have over a dozen eggs at a time. ​

    This is my buff orpington Haddie. Haddie is 10 months old, as are the rest of my chickens, and has never layer an egg.

    UPDATE: She started laying eggs about a week ago [​IMG]
    Her eggs are already as big as her sisters eggs, and they have been laying since August.

    This is Pickles now. She was attacked by a raccoon in September and hasn't layed an egg since, I am hoping she will begin to lay again in the spring. Look how much smaller her comb is now!

    In this picture you can see that Pickles, my welsummer has a crooked tail. It has been like this since she was a baby. Pickles also lost an eye when she was attacked by a raccoon. Pickles is my special needs chicken and I love her so much!

    Thanks for reading!
