I am so excited to be here and look forward to reading about everyone's chickens and experiences, hoping to learn more about these awesome additions to our family.A little about me, I have been married to Don since 1984, and we have 3 great sons, who are grown now and I am so thankful for all of our 39 chickens and roosters (of all different ages, and not sure of many of them breed) started 6 years ago with 5 buffs orphingtons, then ordered comets,then got a few from a neighbor,then a cousinwho is big in chickens also, gave us a few eggs for one of my hens to hatch, mixed them up and now have mixed up breeds, but they all are beautiful and I do wanna start raising more pure breeds. I am interested in those with the feathers on their legs, bantams right? Also what we call game chickens, but not sure if these breeds will give out the eggs like the comets and buffs have been doing over the years. I have only 2 buffs left and they no longer seem interested in anything, so may try hatching a few of their eggs, they do have their own rooster, Mr. B. he is the man around here, i have another one from the comet eggs ,his name is Mr. Early, he is white with brown,reddish streaks, and another rooster, Mr. Brick, because his coloring is that of red bricks,lol. and 2 to 5 more young roosters about to start crowing, grrr, what to do with all of them? I cant stand the thought of putting them in the freezer, but I do have to do something, cause I cant stand to see them fight and gain up on my ladies. So I do have a question, my nephew has gotten into raising chickens and his wife just ask me a question about a few of their hens, she said they cant walk anymore and their legs are turning blue, I have no idea what it could be, they are bantams. I was hoping someone may be able to help me answer her. So Thank You in advance and God Bless all of ya. I look forward to hanging out and learning from ya!
