Hope it is okay to be on this forum, I don't live in the city but in the country and technically my chickens aren't in my backyard, but I can walk out on my deck and see them.... I have 10 hens and 1 rooster. The rooster, Chief, is a beautiful Buff Orpington and he takes his job very seriously. The hens are several different breeds, a Buff Orpington, Rhode Island Red, several black Australorps, one grey Australorp, a Barred Rock, and a white Leghorn. Six of my hens have names and I am still working on 4 more names, it comes with watching them and their personality. So far, several of the hens are laying, we get 4 to 6 eggs a day and it is such a joy to have them, as they will run up to me, I can feed them out of my hand, and don't mind getting up early in the morning to let them out.
