I have 1 Americana named Meri (Great girl. Follows me like a dog. I think I can even give her commands like a dog lol. Not skittish.Talks her head off. Lays her eggs in the bunny food on my back porch. Great layer! Love this girl) Picked up from the feed and seed.
1 silkie, Snowball, Will stay close by, Chats some (very quietly), but doesn't want to be touched. Not my favorite. Not laying yet. Started laying today(few days shy of 26 weeks) Maybe I should have started talking about her sooner lol.Hatched Mother's Day week '13. Ordered from Meyers.
1 SL Polish. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this hen!!! She isn't a hold me hen, but does follow me around desperately trying to tell me some urgent news. I love how she jerks her head around. I do not notice her not seeing well as much as she just seems slow. She is not skittish. She is not laying yet. Hatched Mothers Day week '13. Ordered from Meyers.
here is my list of the chickens I want. If anyone has info they think is pertinent please share.
(in the order of importance)
Black Copper or Cuckoo Maran
maybe (I'm only supposed to have 10 chickens but may sneak in a few more)
I really want my egg basket colorful and different sized eggs. I plan to use Meyers again. The chickens I have are all very docile.
