Hello everyone, I started my flocks about 6 months ago. I have 5 buff orphinton, 2 barred rock, 2 banton, 1 white rocks, 3 leg horns, and 1 gigantic rooster named Russell Crow. My second flock consists of 2 Deuccles 1 RIR, 1 unknown breed "Grrtrude" 2 Astrolorps, 5 Norweigen Jaerhons, 4 Silver laced wynotts and other furry friends as well I am crazy about my chickens and I plan on adding more to my flock come spring. I spoil my girls and 2 boys terribly, meal worms, fresh vegetables, scratch, and I even dig worms for them. My buff orphintons don't want much to do with me as far as holding them but will come a running for treats. I really enjoy my barred rocks and white rocks, they are also very good layers. Russell Crow "the roo" is a force to be reckoned with, don't turn your back on him, he's unpredictable but awesome to his girls besides being gorgeous. I tell you backyard chickens has given me a wealth of information and I read it every night, I love looking at chicken pictures, so thanks for everyone's tips. I have 2 cantons a roo "Cody" and hen "no name" they look so out of place with my much larger hens and Roo. The hen is an unpredictable layer so far only 3 eggs in 3 weeks But she is a keeper they all are though. If anyone can tell me what Grrtrude is I would appreciate it. I love to decorate our barn, this is where the chickens are kept, we built a very well insulated coop for the older hens with good ventilation, and the younger pullets are free ranging in the barn and also have access to the outside.
