    This is my hen that we just call Mama hen. She has a ton of chicks even though she’s old. She’s a mix.

    This hen is one of my favorites. She doesn’t have a name but she currently has 6 chicks.


    This is a chick of Mama Hen. She kicked him out early, because he had seemed to have a paralyzed leg from an attack from a rooster. He’s learned to deal with it. He hops around and even beat up the rooster who attacked him. We have another rooster but I just can’t find him right now as he roams free with the others. Uwu <3

    Careful... I've lost a few that way. It's fun to watch, but they have no defenses at night. Mine (like yours probably are) were way up higher than I could get them down so really nothing I could do about it. I believe an owl or a raccoon finally did them in (had two like this).

    Freebie is my favorite. My boss thinks it needs its own facebook page lol.

    Nugget is my husbands favorite just because of his size. He's just now a year old and 2ft 2in not including his comb. Sweet bird though.

    Oh trust me. We are upset but hes too high for us. He is hidden in the leaves at least. We get off work at 1 am and check them. He randomly started doing it. I am surprised an owl hasnt gotten him yet.
    We both said theres nothing we can do. If he feels safe up there instead then whatever. Plus im more worried about the bear that came and tore up all the trash.
    We sat up a bunch of cameras and continue to constantly check them.

    Also hopefully since I got awarded the bid for 1st shift and my boyfriend got 3rd shift, maybe I can stop this routine of his once I get on 1st. For now I cant do much. We named him rebel tho now.

    This is MJ. Ten week old Araucana. He's my best hatch of the year so far.
    Unfortunately his funny little habit is humping his arm. :rolleyes:

    These two pals are 11 weeks.
    Sapphire Gem and what was sold as an Ameraucana. I did some searching on Ameraucana but can't figure out what color variety she is. What do you all think?
