Hello y'all! Checking in here from Texas. I have a small mixed flock that just got smaller in the last few weeks. My flock is now down to five and just starting laying this week after moving them to a new pen and adding a new rooster. My hens are Helen - an Americauna, Tiffani - a Buff Orpington, Lucy - a red sex link, and Ethel and Red are Rhode Island Reds. My pictured rooster, Jack, was a South Jersey Giant, but sadly died defending his hens from a predator. My new rooster, Doc, is a California Poullet?, still learning about him. Definitely not as gentle as my jack. I originally also had Barred Rocks and Wyndots, but I lost eight hens in three days to a predator I still haven't caught. So we built the new pen. My girls were all born in April and happily two (or three) have started laying, so hopefully they feel safer now. I'm new to this so any suggestions help. Thanks!
