    My original flock was from ideal poultry and consisted of
    3 Buff Orpington pullets. (one was a roo) gave him away at a few weeks old.
    1 Black Cochin pullet (she was supposed to be a roo)
    Two mallard ducks. Both are drakes. They were all hatched July 7.

    I then bought two black chicks from a local farm. They were around the same age.

    I really wanted eggs so I purchased two production reds that were two years old from a local farm.

    On a whim I bought 4, 5 month old OEGB pullets and a roo.

    I really wanted more eggs so I traded a pair of Buff American Geese for a brown laying hen, a laying Colombian Wyandotte, and a 5 month old black Astralorp

    I feel like I'm at my max now.

    My youngest are 15 weeks so I'm waiting for those, my now 6 month old OEGB and my black astralorpe to start laying.

    These are my Buff Orps. We call them thing 1 and thing 2 because they look so much alike. One is getting longer tail feathers now and has a redder face. Hopefully still a pullet. They are 15 weeks old now so I'm thinking it cant be a he right? Pictures are a little blurry because they wouldn't stand still.
