I had chickens, RRs about 20 years ago and am just getting back into them again. My first batch from McMurray are about 6 weeks old now. In that group I have 3 Barred Rocks, 1 Anacona, 1 Black Manorca, 1 Leghorn, 1 Red Star, 2 Silver Wyandotts, Araucanas and something else that I am not sure about. I got their rainbow layer mix and shared them with a friend. Ten days ago I got my second batch from Ideal. I got 5 Golden Lace Wyandottes, 4 Ameraucanas, 4 Blcak Australorps, and 9 Straight run assorted Bantams. I am having so much fun watching them grow and change. In the first group my favorites are the Red Star, I named Red, 2 of the BR, one is tiny named, Thumbalina, and the other a real cuddler, unamed as yet. One of the Banties in the new group is the favorite. He or she, not sure yet, was limping badly the first day and chirping in distress. I separated her form the others and gave her another bantie friend. By the third day she was much better. By the fifth normal. I put her back with the other Banties. I have kept the standards and the banties apart so none of the banties get hurt.
