Ya'll got some crazy lookin' birds! I love it!
Our yearlings have FINALLY started laying. Nine months before we got eggs from half of them. Goodness.
I've got some I need to sell and some I need to process for food. I have six boys and one hen that has some sort of defect making her 2/3rds the size of the rest, and now she has a bum leg suddenly. She's getting around but she was already on the short list... It's just hard to process chickens in the winter.
We're trying to breed to SOP a lil so we're producing a lot of chicks and most of them just don't make the cut.
what breed are you doing? I totally feel you on waiting for the youngsters, my serama pullets are taking ages to go into lay.
Wheaten Ameraucanas. Well, I'm trying anyhow. I've been wholely unable to find good stock that I can get to my property alive TBH (plenty of hatching eggs in like, CA, about as far from me as you can get) so I'm working with some really half arsed birds.
