After a really bad car accident I was limited to light reading and picture books. My husband started grabbing sections of books from the library to keep me busy and brought home the entire section on backyard chickens. I became obsessed and we decided to try it out. We have 6 hens about 12 weeks old: brahma (Miss Brown), Calico Princess (Princess Layer), Barnevelder (Cocoa), 2 blue Andalusian (Rocket and Runt) , and a silver laced Wyandotte (Dak). They all free range and are very happy and healthy. Just recued an EE Roo (Hedwig) that is only 8 weeks. He prefers watching tv with my son and sitting at my feet in the office. Wants nothing to do with the girls. I put him in his private run to interact with them every morning and he immediately escapes to the house (we have a doggy door). Not really sure what to do next.
