I have only had chickens for 4 years.
I thought I would share them with you all

All my chickens/roos I either hatched myself or raised them from a day or 2 old, they all started their first 2 months at least with me inside, in my work office (I work from home) they get a lot of human contact.

Sally my very first chicken ever, and is still the queen of the coop, I have 4 of her babies in the incubator right now, these will be her very first offspring, she has never been interested in sitting on eggs, but she is great at laying the
She is a NH Red, and very very docile with humans, but puts the rest of the flock in their place if need be.

My Luna, I lost her to a raccoon last fall, she is a Bantam cochin, and was just sweet, her and sally used to come running when they heard me pulling into the driveway/
She was super broody, spend most of the summer one time trying to hatch eggs. She was good at letting me check on the eggs and her.

And this was Summer then I found out he was Male and he ended up being called jerk face, and by the pick you can see why, once he hit puberty he tried to attack me every second I was in his sight. (he got rehomed)
He is a Duccle roo. I did get a couple of babies from him and Luna though, that I incubated.

This little cuties are the offspring of Jerk face and Luna. They were such momma's girls, (me, I hatched them) I actually taught them no, and i will show you a pic of what I mean)
This is Camilla and Pandora, I lost them to the raccoon last fall

they were taught not to walk on my keyboard while I was working, so this is what they did. (pretty such one was a roo)

Izzy, my first polish I ever owned, as with most polish breeds she was amusing to watch and was so sweet.
she was the first I lost to the raccoon
hmm I just noticed, what are the odds I am wearing the same shirt in two different pics lol

My sweet ducks, Zeke, Louie, Gabby and Pippa.
Friendly sweet guys and gals, but I ended up with 2 males and they kept fighting, I rehomed them all :( to a nice big farm.

This little beauty is my mama's girl Josie, a Light Brahma I hatch myself and she was the only one that hatched, and boy did she become attached to me. If i walked downstairs to get a drink she would stand at the top of the stand at the top of the stairs and yell for me, she would follow me to the bathroom. I was devastated when I lost her to the raccoon less than a month after I finally put her outside.

The second half
These are 5 bantams I hatched with eggs I ordered from Meyers, I ordered 6, hatched 5
I have an EE, Rose, Mottled cochin Grover(he was a roo), Bob, Mille fleur duccle, (roo), Jinx, Buff Brahma bantam, (roo), and a Mille Fleur Pullet
Josie was about a month older than them and still in the house with me, and boy did they love her, she was fluffy and they thought of her as their mom, they would always huddle under her feathers.

I lost all but Jinx and Bob to the Raccoon. Jinx ended up with the eye injury
I have the pics when they are bigger backed up on disks, so I don't have them here.

Thanks for sharing your pictures! Sorry about the losses...have things been reinforced so they are safer now? It would be a shame to lose more.
ooo yeah, I lost the flock over a few days, every time I thought I found where it was getting it, I was wrong, I finally found a small hole in the eve of the shed/coop.
Plus I trapped the raccoon in a have a heart trap.
I reinforced and double reinforced every inch of that coop

I haven't had a problem since
