    Thats just half of them, I have 2 flocks one flock I have had from dayold 16 hens and have been laying for almost 3 months they are the ones you see in the pics, they free range everyday from 3 pm until feeding time then they sleep. The second flock 15 hens I rescued from an egg farmer who was culling because they were not laying everyday, one was sick and she didnt make it but the rest are doing good, for me they are laying everyday they miss a day now and then but thats normal.I had them seperated for 2 weeks and now they are mixed Anyway the point i'm getting to is I now have 30 hens getting under my feet at feeding time and I have to watch were i walk because they realy get under my feet. I will post more pics soon.

    This is now the mixed flock, I try to seperate them but they all make B line for the first feeder and then they start to drift to the other one.[​IMG]


    You can actually see the difference in the colour of the feathers of the 2 flocks

    What breed of birds are getting in April?

    I only have 16 and they trip me up every day...I'd be flat on my face with 30-50 of them underfoot, lol!
