I originally started with three rescue hens, this was a few years ago. slowly started expanding my flock, then began hatching eggs via incubation from my own rooster and hen. I have sold some and bought specific breeds to mix my flock. Ranging from RIR, Swedish Flowers, Cream Legbars, New Hampshire’s, Buff Orpington’s and hoping to add in some Easter Eggers.
I now have around 17 hens/rooster mix ranging from a few weeks old to our oldest rescue who is estimated around 5/6 years old.
