    My Flock


    Hello everyone, and welcome to the small corner of BYC dedicated to my flock! Info will be added about each member as I go, so stay tuned!

    The Egg Layer Flock

    I have a large flock of egg layers, and there are some standout members.

    The Buff Orp Girls​

    These girls came to me from a lady that no longer wanted them. She was tired of feeding big dual purpose girls when all she wanted was a flock of lightweight egg producers. So they came to live with me. I can't really tell them apart, but they all have unique personalities. Some are very friendly and will hop up next to me on the bench in the yard to hang out, while others would prefer to keep their distance.

    Lemon​

    Lemon is a red sex link from the first batch of chicks I ever raised. She is the hen in my avatar. She is also a very unusual red sex link in that she went broody and raised chicks. She was a fiercely protective broody and a great mother. She is also a lap chicken, quick to jump into my lap when I sit in the yard. She also loves nothing more than to wipe her muddy beak on my pants.

    About Author

    Pyxis
    I have owned poultry for a little over ten years, and in that time I have read and learned from many sources and many experienced people. Now I am trying to give back by writing about and passing on some of the things I have learned through research and hands-on experience. I hope you find my articles helpful.
