First year chicken herder , started this spring with some misc. chicks and am addicted already. We have 2 leghorn hens that were given to us 6 hens that are black with a red/orange/copper set of feathers around their necks ( ???) .... 9 hens that are reddish/buff colored and 2 roosters orange and black one with a white tail and one with a black tail. Have no idea what kind they are ... they lay some of the darkest brown eggs I've seen , well except for the leghorns. Have 4 chicks about 3 weeks old from hatch #1 ( homemade incubator in a foam cooler , lightbulb , dimmer etc) and we have 42 eggs in an incubator right now on day 8 .
