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
Her eggs are already as big as her sisters eggs, and they have been laying since August.
This is Layla, my barred rock.
This was Pickles, my welsummer, in 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!
This is Dinking, my Easter egger
Here are some more photos:
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!
