My chicken journey

    So we decided to bite the bullet and get some Brown Leghorn Bantam pullets and a Brown Leghorn Bantam rooster so we can raise our own chicks.

    The first step we took was to purchase 10 Brown Leghorn Bantam pullets and a Brown Leghorn Bantam rooster from a local breeder. [​IMG]

    I also bought an incubator, see here to see my progress in incubating. [​IMG]

    The first two days they were very quiet and today when I went in to check on them I found a broken egg [​IMG]and they were making a little more noise and eating better, both the scraps and the pellets I gave them,[​IMG]

    I am checking on them regularly to get them used to me but also so I can see if any others are showing the signs of about to lay eggs.
     
  2. Love those Brown Leghorn Bantams!

    Wishing ya the best.
