youngchooklover's flock!

  1. youngchooklover
    Hey! I thought I would share a little bit about my flock and some pics of them. [​IMG]
    Feel free to ask questions.

    Here we have Samuel my Leghorn cross Light Sussex rooster. Although he looks mean he's just one big baby. ^-^

    Here's Samuel doing his little dance to me.

    Here's my flock at feeding time with Samuel on watch.


    [​IMG]
    Here we have poor Samuel's mother Elizabeth who's a Leghorn who suffers from bumble foot. We have tried to take out the bubble foot but it never works.
    She should be put down but I don't just have the heart.

    Here we have Samus (top) and Maple (bottom). Both Silkie Bantams wanting to go broody. Not sure yet if I will let them. [​IMG]

    This is little Mary who's a Leghorn Bantam cross, with her 4 little chicks. She hatched 3 chicks but 2 died by being crushed by her own eggs.
    At the same time our incubator hatched 3 chicks who were sadly crossed so we gave them to her. 2 times I have caught a group of crows trying to eat the chicks so she is bound to the coop for now.

    Poor Sarah having to wait her turn for the nest. [​IMG]


    [​IMG]This is little Max my Silkie Bantam breeding rooster. Love him to bits. [​IMG]

    Here's 2 of my Powerful 4 (It's the name of the little group). Both roosters and also sons of Samuel.

    To end, here's Emily laying in my cage for chicks. -_-

    Hope you enjoyed and maybe learned something!
