This past year I went ahead and got some cornish cross and around ten or so layer breeds for pets. Just for the summer. Butchered the meat birds. Well two months after I got mine my mother in law ordered ten chantecler chicks from Ideal hatchery and got 25 chicks. Most of them were chanteclers. Partridge and Reds. At least that is what we think they are. All roosters but the two Chantecler roosters were butchered off. So we have a mixed flock of about half Chanteclers and a mix of brahma, buff orpington, silver laced wyandotte, white rock, barred rock, partridge rock and black sex links. Was VERY cold out there in the coop today! Only 6 degrees in the coop. Zero degrees outside! Typical North Dakota winter weather has set in. I feel bad for the birds with combs! This is my first post with pictures. Hope it works! Enjoy. And yes, they are still laying eggs! About eight eggs per day now. Getting a little less as this cold sets in. But that's pretty good with 20 hens.
