The beginnings of my flock

    I'm just learning about chickens and currently have 3 Polish, a couple of pullets and a rooster waiting for me to go pick them up. The same Farm [Royal Acres] are hatching me some easter eggers too.


    HATCHING THE EGGS

    The eggs are given to Dahlia to hatch. Dahlia is a broody silkie. Her owners were very glad to have some need for her to hatch chicks. I think Dahlia was pretty pleased also.

    Dahlia is given the eggs to sit on.





    Two chicks now!

    Lesson in using the water dish.
