In the Brooder
- Oct 8, 2014
Hello all! We are new chicken owners! We got our chicks a couple of months ago and they are now about 12 weeks old now. We ordered the chicks from McMurray with a friend's help! We have 2 Americanas, 1 buttercup, 1 barred rock, 1 blue Andalusian, 1 buff orpington, 1 white wyandotte (it was supposed to be a white orp), 1 golden Polish and 1 black Australorp roo. I have had so much fun with my "girls!" I never knew how entertaining chickens could be, or how attached I could get to a bunch of silly birds! The only thing I worry about, besides predators and the neighbors dog, is I think our buff orpington might be a roo rather than a pullet. Not sure what we'll do with 2 roosters if this is the case! We've only heard one of them crowing, but not positive that it's the black Australorp.
