    how old are they?

    this worried me about buying straight run Blue Americauna's, I bought 8 and I'm hoping upon hope to have at least 5 hens. One roo will go to the daughter and son in law, any other 'extra' roos will go up for sale on craigslist.....

    I've had about 22 chickens since i started this process. 3 were killed by hawks, 1 was killed by a dog, 2 died of natural causes and something like 7 ended up being roosters. For a while i was giving away roosters weekly.
