I’ve got a flock of 10 grown hens so far. I’ve become obsessed. I’m completely in love with raising them. I even adopted a rooster that is very nice to us. He’s been great with his ladies. Recently I had one of my young hens go broody on me. I let her sit on eggs but none proved viable. As a result I went out & got a few day old chicks for her to raise. I put them under her at night & took the eggs away. She’s being a great momma. Now I’m thinking of adding 2-3 more to my flock besides the 4 I gave her. Those are the cream legbars. My sister has had them in the past & she liked them but they tended to be jumpy. I’m trying to get some more info on the breed from people who’ve raised them. Please help me decide. I’ve got room to have 25-28 chickens in the 2 large coops I’ve got. They’ve also got a large fully enclosed run. It’s 50’x25’x6’. It’s got a large pie tree one side of the run bends around & lots of branches for them to climb around on.
