Started with 5 Buff Orpingtons and one "white chicken". Added another 8 Buffies a year later. PLUS 3 Americana, Three Black Jersey Giant, and a "grey chicken". Also added six Cross meaties, as well as fifteen "mixed run" meaties. All organic and "wide-ranging"...(we DO have a fence, but it's around over an acre). One BJG cock and one Americana cock, so no more need to buy flock replacements. It's been an..."interesting"...couple of years, to be sure!
