    Getting three two week old light Brahma chicks, two ten week old (1 grey, 1 white) Polish x Auracana chicks and two four week old Araucana bantam chicks...


    I'm so excited... [​IMG]



    I currently have five standard layer hens (got them from a farm), one standard rooster and one silkie X hen.




    Had this little guy just yesterday, but sadly he was weak, couldn't walk and was crushed by his mother.

    The three little white chicks are light Brahmas, the two black/grey ones are Araucana bantams and the larger two are (apparently) Polish x Araucana, but the woman I got them from said they have some Silkie in them too.

    That's so exciting! I can only get new chicks once every two years, we don't have enough people to eat the eggs produced by more than two laying hens at a time [​IMG] And my dad refuses to feed more chickens than we need.

    Sorry about your loss though [​IMG]
