    Yay, something easy and relatively cheap! Let's see, I have on hand olive oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil - any thoughts on which would be better to use?

    Anyone have any idea what breed or breeds this hen is? I know she is a mix but of what?

    I wish they were something cool like that! They're ISA browns, which are still cool but I was hoping to branch out a little bit. :)

    32-40 seems like a looooooooooooooong time! my BOs started at about 21 weeks. but maybe it depends on WHEN they were raised... i got mine in september, so when it started getting warm out they started laying. idk, theory i guess

    My 4 month old Red Sexlink Goldie started laying 6 days ago and she has done me proud.

    just guessing but to me it looks as if it has an easter egger face. but the comb is too tall so maybe a brown leghorn mixed in.

    the heritage breeds take longer to mature but lay for longer well past the 5 yr mark. The HRIR are also much larger than their hatchery counterparts. Larger is better for me as it reduces me thinking of a hawk attack and the roosters provide more meat. Since I plan to hatch any future HRIR chickens I want, I need to have larger roosters.

    I don't think I've ever posted a picture of this young guy. He's my oldest Rhodebar cockerel. The Marans roo was NOT happy with him out there. He came charging at him. Guess my time of adding roos to the flock are now one lol.
