Hi all - So glad I found this site! New to "chickening", not new to animal raising. Must say my girls (6) have added a dimension and hilarity to our yard (and home when they break in). The rundown: 5 month olds - Buff Orphington "Popcorn", Bard Rock "Brosia", Auraucana "Egger" 3 month olds - Silver Wyandotte "Nevada", Rhode Island Red "Misty", Swiss Australope "Charlotte" The older ones are in a naughty phase, the younger ones want to be in our laps all the time!!!!! A few issues to deal with: The girls have taken over the yard. Time to get a large coop to put them all in at some point here. Have to wait until it is safe for the pullets. If I could sell chicken poo I'd be a millionaire! Finding a coop big enough for all of them without breaking the bank, this is my Holy Grail. Looking forward to learning, sharing and thriving through my "chicken years" on this board! And if you are in Northern Nevada - let me know! Strength in numbers. While I type this they are putting up a ruckus - good lord girls this is not a biker bar!
