Hello! I was thinking about starting a small blog about my 18 chickens. Daily updates and such. I guess I should start with some background info. In 2012, we got our first batch of chickens. 17 hens (very lucky) 5 austrolorpes, 6 buff orpingtons, and 6 EEs. Over the next 4 years or so, we added AND subtracted from our flock (hawk attacks, winter, sickness, ect) eventually, my family accumulated 32 chickens, until one day when our new puppy got out and slaughtered 16 of them. We are now currently living with 18 chickens. Two of the original austrolorps (eggbert & cucumber) 3 of the original EE's (cupcake, dandelion, & widow) 3 of the original buff orpingtons & one new one (octagon, glove, little mitten, and eggly) 1 RIR (waddles;very noisy I might add) 1 New Hampshire red (omlet) 1 barred rock(hopper) 1 buff bantam Cochin(little foot) 1 buff laced polished (nomo or crazy head) 1 dark cornish(amber) 2 GLW(cinnamon & toast) and 1 buff orpington/EE mix (tic tac) I will be talking more about the flock in more posts coming soon!
