Hello, my name is Cassiopeia. I currently have 8 chickens plus one that just appeared in my coop last week. I have an Old English Game Bantam rooster, and my hens are an Austra White, Black Australorp, Buff Orpington, Salmon Faverolle, Jersey Giant, Cinnamon Queen, and an Easter Egger, plus a Black Laced Silver Wyandotte that appeared in my coop randomly. I still don't know where she came from but she has a bare back from being over mated. I'm fairly new to chickens. I've had my flock for about a year now. I bought a home with a coop all ready to go. About a month after I moved in a rooster appeared out of nowhere in my front yard one day at sunset. He followed me all the way into my back yard and into my coop and then proceeded to flutter up onto my shoulder and snuggle against my neck. That's how I got my rooster. About a week later I got him 7 chicks. They've been a happy family ever since! I'm excited to learn all I can about taking care of these cuties.
