Big Red & Rooroo's Flock
Well let's see where to begin....
We started with two leghorn chicks in June 2009, and got attached quick! Before we knew it we were back at the feed store for two more! Within three months we had 6 little leghorn hens running around! So it's been close to a year now, and we have since had to move to the country to support our flock! We are absolutely nutts about each and every one of them!
I've read a lot that leghorns aren't much for human contact, well ours are warped! They love to come right up into the house with us! Our hens are awesome layers, and super friendly as you can see by our pics. They don't mind our little dogs, and will come right to us when called. They love to go on scavenger hunts too! We walk and flip over rocks, & twigs. When they hear the call they ALL come a running! Now we have 20 hens, & 4 roosters. Some day when we have more room we will have more girls. We did have over 40 hens a few months ago, but things happen. =(
So much for just two or three chicks, LOL
This is Big Red! We call her that because she is the oldest, and believes she is the rooster! Here she is demanding some attention!
after the dog decided to eat the other one.
after he lost some weight but while still waiting for his feathers to start growing back.
