    Just made my first post.
    First year with chickens.
    I have one Longhorn pullet (hen?) hatched in March of this year; "Lursa"
    One Jersey Black Giant; "Lilly"
    Eight hatched in April of this year:
    2 "red sex links" - they are the "henny pennies"
    2 "amber sex links" - they are the "lemon jellies"
    4 longhorn "pullets", THREE of whom are presently learning to crow.
    And six "bantams" about a week behind the April crew
    They are fluffy/furry, look like angry punk rockers, and have extra toes.
    I am assuming they are silkies. One is suspiciously rooster looking.

    I absolutely adore them and am dreading the day I have enough of the roos.
    I also have four horses, 2 dogs, 3 cats, one man and (every other weekend), his two kids; 13 and 9.

    Hello.

    Oh, and while I thought I free ranged them, I actually yard them. When they are older, I hope to free range them.
