What a big surprise! I am a new member. I have 8 chickens that I just built a coop for and attached our old 10' by 10' dog run for some run around area. I am planning on building a small tractor/ark to semi-free-range them when I can. We have raccoons in the area, so I have to be extra careful. Six of my hens are about 16-17 weeks old: One Hamburg, one Australorp, one Buff Orpington, two Leghorn or California White, and one white with greenish legs but looks like her feathers are dirty on the edges all the time - not quite sure what she is. We also got two more: I think the small one (about 6-7 weeks) is Ameraucana or Araucana. The older one (12-14 weeks?) I thought was either ISA Brown or some type of sex link. I am pretty sure it is part Rhode Island Red, but not too sure. Any help? Thanks!
