    Hi all, I am a grandmother of 6......raising 3 of them. We live on 50 wooded acres where our hens free range. Our first batch were the easter eggers...followed by a mixture leghorns, Reds, and Barred Rocks.

    During this past winter we lost a number of our flock and so we (me and grands) went to TSC to get a few more chicks. Taking grandchildren when buying chicks is NOT an easy thing.
    i ended up at first getting more Barred rock......... one of my grandchildren chose also some Buff Orphingtons ( 2 died so far) one of my grandchildren got a few RI reds, and my eldest granddaughter came home with some mystery black, grey and cream chicks......

    its going to be an interesting summer!
