Been trying to keep up on the thread activities and been doing well as far as reading. Seriously lacking in my responses though. Try and sum things up as small as possible... Welcome to all the new people to the thread. If questions have been asked, I have missed them and you might have to repost if there was no answer (I normally have something to offer for questions) Sorry to hear about all the sickness, injuries and deaths in several different flocks. I am just waiting for something to happen my end. Glad to see a few people back, I know things can be hectic during the summer. Still trying to rehome my three roo's. What a pain! One is near his end for the continual noise he produces and his not so friendly demeanor to me while removing a few chickens. Would a bantam be a suitable bird to bring for the 28th?, if so, he is coming with me. Would not be a super meat producer, but I figured if I could butcher a bantam without problems I would be fine with LF. I got to meet AATH which was nice. He took two of my leghorn hens to add to his flock. Still might be on the look out for a bantam Cochin rooster preferably blue/white/splashy or something showy looking. I am still convinced my three are all girls ( could just be flat out denial and I don't see the rooisms happening). Not 100% sure about the lavenders either. Will post newer pictures when I finally get off my lazy butt and take my camera out there.
