Hi I am Dianna and I am new here. I have 18 chickens and I am new to raising them
Haha I can't imagine starting with 18! I've had poultry for three years (not long) and I thought 16 was a lot to accumulate. Chicken math I guess hits some harder than others aye?
Hi, welcome to BYC. I have 18 chickens too, but i am giving away three to four cockerels so I will have fourteen or fifteen soon. What breeds are your chickens? I have Wyandottes, Columbian Rocks, Columbian Rock Ameraucanas, Columbian Rock Rhode Island Red, Cuckoo Marans, and a Cuckoo Maran Columbian Rock. They all have names and because my flock built up slowly i know each of their personalities. I love to sit out with them and watch what they do. If you have any questions feel free to ask!
I have 5 road island reds and 11 bantam mixes
Forgot to say, I have a Dutch Bantam! Loves to hatch chicks, very broody. Drives me nuts, but i hatch out chicks for the neighbors. I am going to break her broodiness when the neighbors have enough chickens. Do yours go broody? I've heard that Bantam's in general like to set on eggs.
My haven't started laying yet
You mentioned Bantam mixes. Know what breeds? Prepare yourself, they might all want to hatch or they might not just what i heard!
I was only supposed to get 12 but ended up with more than I thought
I don't know what breed I was just told they were mixed
