Hi all. I'm new to BYC. I live in South Arkansas, with my husband. I got my 6 chicks (one week old) May 5, 2017. 3 turned out to be roosters. When they started to crow we had toget rid of them (no roosters in city limits). Our local ASPCA took them left us with 3 hens. They are Easter Eggers. With 1 having a scissor beak. Our hens free range our large back yard. A month ago I caught a hawk in my yard and it got one of my good hens ( our scissors beak hasn't laid any eggs). I hand feed her her feed and have gotten her to eat that mush off the ground like other hens. She has gained weight and caught up in size. She is sweet.
