We have 6 chicks and this will be our first flock ever! We live in town and are raising the hens as pets with egg benefits. Right now they are just sooo sweet and cuddly and just adore being held! I think they are a couple of weeks old and all seem to get along well. Faverolle-- Dee Cuckoo Maran-- Lily Silkie Bantam-- Isabelle (the smallest) Plymouth Rock-- Anna Buff Orpington-- Permilia (the biggest of the flock) Buff Orpington-- Purley When they are all asleep on my chest they lay their little heads down like humans! Any advice would be appreciated and I look forward to getting to know more chicken lovers!
