    My flock is a year old today! [​IMG]

    I had intended to take pics of them today, but it's pouring the rain. Here's pics of them taking a few weeks ago:

    I have 15 happy, healthy brahmas.
    Here's how I arrived at that number:
    Ordered 23
    Two were DOA
    Gave away 3 extra roos at 7 weeks old
    Gave a roo and 2 hens to a friend needing to restart her flock
    Now have one roo and 14 hens
    Desperately need to get more chickens! [​IMG]

    Milestones, don't you love 'em? I cannot believe my originals are well over three years old now.
