I have had chickens for a while now and love them just as much now as I did when I got my first five chicks. Somehow they magically multiplied and I now have thirty and get more eggs than I know what to do with. My first chicks were purchased from My Pet Chicken and even though I look at their website and make a dream order, I let my broody Buff Orpington hatch eggs for the hens that show no interest in sitting on the nest. I also have a few barnyard mixes that have hid out in the garden only to turn up in a coupe weeks with their new little brood. I love my roosters and wish I could keep them all because it seems each one is prettier than the last, but I have to limit myself. Right now I have seven and I love hearing them crow because they all have a very distinct sound. Here are some of the boysRebel Mr. Grey Axel Max, who is the father of all the others.
