Today while laying in bed I was thinking about my chickens, and I all of a sudden thought "Wow in the last 2 years that I've had chickens I already have up to 3 generations!" So here's pictures of my 3 generation chicken family This is Delilah In September of 2014 all started when my first rooster, Ralph who was a Buff Chantecler, bred my hen Delilah who is a Partridge Chantecler. Delilah hid under a wheelbarrow, I thought she had been eaten. When the chicks started to hatch i heard them so we put hay and a kennel in the barn. She hatched out 8 chicks in there. Shortly before the chicks had hatched Ralph had drowned, so i went looking for another rooster. As these chicks grew up i got rid of them, 4 happened to be roosters the other 4 hens. I kept just one who i had named RJ(Ralph Junior). RJ quickly fought off the rooster I had bought after his fathers death and became the boss around the coop. So that is the 2nd Generation. On November 6, 2015 I heard peeping outside the coop, so I ran outside and I saw 8 chicks of all different colors and shapes, some looked like EEs others were yellow some were brown and big and small. Knowing that if they had been out here in -40F some probably wouldn't make it through the night due to hypothermia. So I gathered them in my bomber hat and took them inside the coop, there I showed them to every hen. Finally I got to a White Californian who had a frostbitten comb and looked small, and was dirty. She clucked so I figured she was the mom. I set up the cage and put the chicks in, only 3 made it through the night. This is the 3rd Generation This is them grown up, I ended up selling one which I now regret Iggy Buckbeak Persephone Sometime in April I forgot to look underneath Delilah while she was broody in the nest boxes, and she hatched out 2 eggs. The ironic thing is that she's the one who started it all, and RJ and Buckbeak are their father! One is a Black Sex Link x Chantecler The other is an Easter Egger x Chantecler Sadly because of what I want to do in the chicken world I am going to have to sell Iggy the white rooster... And if any of the most recent chicks are roosters I will have to sell them too..
