I just joined the other day to ask a question about one of my chickens that's molting. It looks like a great group of chicken farmers here so I thought I'd say hi, officially Hi! I'm Nicole. I've had chickens for about 3 years now. I got my first flock in Jun 2009. Mostly Rhode Island Reds and Barred Plymouth Rocks, and 2 Silver laced wyandottes. Only one of them are left. Foxes and hawks got them the first year. The last girl standing is named Wonky because she looks a little silly because her comb flops back and forth. She's also a little slow! We re-stocked in June 2010 with 16 total - more Barred Plymouth Rocks, 4 Light Brahmas and 4 Buff Orpingtons. I haven't named any of the new flock. Having all my first babies killed kind of took the fun out of it for me But I still enjoy them! Looking forward to learning more in this community.
