I'm Amber. I have several chickens, and three ducks. I dont know what any of them are, which is partly why i joined. I thought I could get to know about my babies better, and all the fun/ and not so fun things about them.

Ive lost three of my flock this winter to a crow, and two hawks.

Only one girl is laying, Hedwig.

hopefully you guys can give me some info on all the peepers.

Also all i was told about my younger birds: Hawkeye, Goldie, Perch, Tom, and Hedwig- was that they are Banty. I dont even know what that is. Every time i look up pics they are every type of chicken. I know the def. is that its a smaller version of something. But i cant find these guys anywhere.

Out to pasture
I would be more concerned with protecting your birds from predators, if you are free ranging them - it sounds like they would be better off in an enclosed run with cover. Also the openings in your fencing are large enough for various predators to get inside and kill your birds. Please check out the predators threads on BYC and also the coops section for suggestions on having secure coop and runs for your flock.
