    Hi all, just joined this great online chicken community. We currently have 250 laying chickens on our care farm project, a mixture of Black Rock and Warrens. We have the odd donated chicken scratching about - a couple of broilers, two Silkies and some potential Easter Eggers. In addition to this we have a pair of home hatched and hand reared New Hampshire Reds and a spare cockerel (any takers?). This breed is rare in the UK and we hope to increase our current numbers to a small breeding flock. ALSO, later today I will be setting a hatch of Vorwerk eggs. View their progress at http://lifeinasoggymeadow.wordpress.com/

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Sounds like you are very busy there! Good luck with your vorwerk eggs that you will be setting, hope you have a great hatch. Once you have a post count of 20 you could post your cockerel in the buy sell trade section. Here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/67/buy-sell-trade

    Enjoy BYC and be sure to ask any questions you may have, everyone here to help and very friendly :frow

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. You have some egg laying machines. Black Rocks and Warrens are commonly referred to in the USA as Black Sex Links and Red Sex Links, and these two hybrids have been my best layers, consistently churning out more than 300 eggs per hen per year. My Black Rocks (Black Sex Links) have been especially persistent layers in really cold winter weather. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
