We started our chicken experience last Spring with 5 hens and 2 Roos. This Spring we were down to 2 hens and 1 Roo (due to predators and Sudden unexplained dead chicken syndrome). So when one of my hens went broody this Spring I let her hatch 6 eggs...........5 of which have turned into Roos. We also got 3 Silkies from the neighbor....2 of which have turned into Roos. Then BOTH the hens went broody last month and they have just hatched out another 6 chicks (they're so cute) .................So, 2 hens, 2 pullets, 6 - 1 week old chicks, 8 Roosters and the reason my hubby is grumpy.......NO EGGS!!!!
