    [​IMG]Mamma to a dog, a cat, 21 Americana, 3 Cochins, 8 red sexlink and 7 Silkies![​IMG]

    I started having Chickens maybe a year ago and only one of the first flock has survived, Roo my breed unknown rooster is second in the flock only to me. I have had several other birds loose them here and there and keep trying to make a bomb proof coop and run. I had a polish disappear to hawks, lost 3 americana to dogs.
    I love my chickens and all the effort that I put in for them really seems worth the effort. my new flock of bantum americana 4 birds has already lost one, very sad face[​IMG].
    HOORAY!!! 12 new Pullets, excited to be the proud new Momma to these beautiful babies!!!!
    Augh!!! just bought 10 more Pullets So Cute. . . I am addicted to buying chicks!!!
    Some one stop me please!!! (My prayers answered with a Broody hen!)

    I hope in the future to have a large flock of Americana . I hope your flock and days are wonderful

    Chicken Math is killing me!! I now have 50 chickens Many different ages, I love it!!! I spend almost all my waking hours with them
    My Roo is such a master of his domain! He is so protective and helps keep the little ones in check, I have lost no more to predators I think my coop and the Roo have finally made a safe and happy area for my flock.
    Look forward to when they all start laying..


    CHICKEN MATH!!!
    How did it happen that now I have 56 chickens, many teens, 8 babies, and my original 6 adults!?!?!?
    Love them all and spend a lot of time spoiling them!!!
    big Randy is fine, found a Possum stalking the perimiter of my coop! will dispatch him if I see him again!!


    Nature or the road took care of the opposum. and a large Raccoon, and a large Black snake. My babies are doing well, and my flock is growing in leaps and bounds. Sister picked up 10 more Americana for me and I will integrate them to my flock.. and 2 White Silkies! I haen't gotten them yet sister too far away! I won't try Polish anymore I have lost too many of them. I am very excited a huge coop for all the birds to stay together a small coop for the broodies, and a growing area for the babies!!! I have kept busy!
