Thanks for adding me to the site! I'm looking forward to learning from the pros and old-timers out there! I recently adopted a small flock of 1.5 yr old hens - 2 Chanteclers, 2 Barred Plymouth Rocks, a Sussex and an Easter Egger. Unfortunately, our friend's dog got one of the Chanteclers the first week they were with us... The dog is on the watch-list, and the birds are locked up when he's around! We just added a Gold-Laced Wyandotte cockerel, who has settled in just fine and is getting used to being the bottom of the totem pole LOL! Id like to add a few more hens - a Marans, maybe an Icelandic, and my daughter is after a Lavender Orpington. These birds are ADDICTIVE! How do you decide what breed to add? LOL!
