I have not so many chickens, 2 mottled Cochin, 4 silkies, and 4 standards. I love them, don't get me wrong, but part of my just wants to keep my cochins. They are my two hens and so lovey. The others don't want to be touched. I really love them, I care for them all the same. But when I open the pen and they run I just kinda stand there and then run. The standards hurt themselves trying to get away, even though I handle them just like the cochins. I have half and a third of my mind to just say, okay, lets get em on CL and give them to some one. Why am I paying an arm and a leg for coops, feed, and treats and not even get a cluck you. I never understand it. It'd be so easier to care for 2 bantams than 10. But then other times I feel like I want more! I just wanna know if I'm alone.
