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!Hi I am Dianna and I am new here. I have 18 chickens and I am new to raising them
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.
I was only supposed to get 12 but ended up with more than I thoughtHello Dianna,
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?
