This is my second year of chicken keeping. I started out with 24 chicks. 12 Rhode Island Reds and 6 White Brahmas and 6 mixed which turned out to be 2 white Leghorns, and 4 EasterEggers. I have lost 11 birds due to preditors and the weather. I still have 2 EasterEggers which I treasure. My customers love the green eggs! I am raising them for eggs. I just purchased 18 chicks which I am brooding in my bathtub in the house. I have 12 Buff Orpingtons and 6 White Lace Wyandots. I can already tell I have at least 2 cockrels. They will be eaten later. I have a 6X6 coop which I am expanding to a 6X12 next weekend. The chicks are 3 weeks old and jumping and trying to fly. I expect to walk into my bathroom one of these times and finds chick all over the floor! I will post some pictures soon!
