A friend of a friend was moving and couldn't take his chickens. So we've adopted a ready made family. Now I just need to know what kind of family we're raising. Currently we have 16 in an 8 x 10 coop and they are free ranging a good part of the day underneath a mass of bittersweet vines and an abandoned corn crib. Our original plan was to build a fenced run but they are pretty well protected underneath the vines. If predators get to be a problem, I'll revert to Plan A. I just think they are pretty content with the freedom to range a bit. So here are my guesses? What do you think.... White Leghorn - Roo? (hasn't ever crowed....) Another White Leghorn - Roo? Auracauna & Black Australorp - Hens - he had a few too many Roosters in the henhouse. Feathers are starting to come back. We've had them a week. Lunch? I'm thinking this may be a broiler. An Auracauna Rooster with a couple of Delaware Hens? Another Delaware hen? My friend had harrassed the original owner so much about naming his animals (he didn't) so ALL of the animals on the farm are named "Bob". I'm trying to come up with a a few Bob variations.
