Hello from Oklahoma

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Lilcountrgal, Jun 12, 2016.

  1. Hey ya'll I am Lilcountrgal! I have Rhode Island Reds, 6 hens and 1 rooster. I am also a mama to 3 beautiful babies and we returned home to Oklahoma after my husband served in the US Coast Guard. We live out in the country and ate loving it. We started out with 7 Rhode Island Reds and are looking to add more to our flock! Our coop took us a weekend to build and looks more like a chicken Taj Mal hall! Look forward to the interaction

  9. Thank you! He is ornery at times. When I change their water and feed the ladies come running and he gets mad and will come running flapping his wings! I just puff up and flap my arms right back at him. He don't know what to think lol

  10. So my one hen is broody and I allowed her to keep 2 of the eggs and sits on the most of the day and only gets up a few times to eat and drink them right back to them. It's been 3 weeks and 2 days but no baby chick's yet. Not sure if the eggs are even viable, but they definitely feel heavier. It would be the first they have hatched in their own. I have had them since they were 3 weeks old and they are now about 8 months old.
