    The Chicken Woman's Place

    Me and Molly my Standard Black Cochin​
    Welcome to my page! I am called 'chicken woman' by a lot af my friends, and even some of the neighbors. I had chickens and ducks as a teenager, and then last year I put in an order with a friend for 6 standard cochins and 6 partridge rocks. I chose the breeds for their broodieness, and the old fashioned abilities they both have. I also just loved the cochins fluffyness!
    Last winter, we got out first eggs, and also realized Oosey the PR rooster was evilhearted, and hated children. After butchering him, I realized I wanted more Partridge Rocks, so I started saving eggs, and ordered an incubator! I got three PR roos and four PR hens from that baatch of eggs, and also made enough money selling chicks to pay for my chick started for two months!
    I started ordering eggs, and incubating more of my own, and I also bought 6 RIR chicks. I went from wanting twelve hens to having (currently) around 65 chickens and chicks!
    I plan on keeping and breeding Partridge Rocks, Black cochin, Rhode Island Reds, and mixed banties. My DD and DS also fell in love with Polish, so we now have 6 of them in the brooder too! I am not breeding show stock, just utility birds, for laying and meat.
    I also have a wonderful trick driving husband, who drives grain locally, so he is home every night. We have three children, Hailey, 4, Caiden, 3 and Abby, 1.​

    She has since had a second batch this year, all of which were adopted from the incubator. 9 babies the first time, 19 the second!

    My 4 yr old DD named him, I have no idea...

    Hopefully he's friendlier then his dad! He has such long legs, it is so funny to see him run. I just love PR roosters!

    Since we move here, we have had around 80 chickens and chicks outside, in box brooder and open coop, free ranging. I never shut them in at night. 80 chickens, 9 months, no losses. GOOD DOG!

    Even though they have a waterer in the chicken yard, they all drink out of the dog bucket!
