    Hi,
    I have had a flock of chickens for 3 1/2 years. I have learned a lot since I started!!!

    The most we have had at one time is 16 hens. (Roosters were too aggressive and noisy- I would like to try again with a more tame one.)

    We have lost quite a few to hawks, so now we do not free range. We also lost several to a racoon and now have secured the rafters of the coop.

    I am currently adding some new young hens to our small group of 4 ladies.
    We have the following right now:
    1 bantam cochin
    1 Buff
    1 Black (Australorp?)
    1 Americana

    New chickens we are adding today: (keeping them seperate)
    1 Lavender Orp.

    3 Black Austrolorp
    1 Cochin

    We have an automatic door which I love!!! (I found out about it here)

    I really love all of the information here- thanks to all of you who post and help those of us who are new to the world of chickens.

    :) Bnanners
