In the Brooder
May 18, 2017
Hi everyone. I am Monica. I have 17 chickens. One is a meat bird we got by accident and will have to be dealt with soon, he can't get around well. I have 9 seven week old chicks that are just a hodge podge. A cornish cross, a Silkie, 4 red selling, a solid black with a touch of orange that I am unsure of the breed, a barred Rock, and a Rhode island red. I know for sure the cornish cross and the barred Rock are roosters. Then I have 8 three week Olds, 4 of them are brown Easter Eggers, two are yellow Easter Eggers and 2 are Black Australorps and all 8 were sold as Pullets. They are in a large 2 story a frame coop with a fully closed in attached 10x10 run, we are about to expand both the run and the coop! I really enjoy sitting out there with my chickens,

Chickens are so fun!
When you get settled upload some pictures of you flock!
