I am very excited this spring! I am starting with a new flock of chickens! I lost my whole flock last year when I introduced an adult without quarantine..... BAD BAD BAD IDEA. Coryza spread and killed all but 2. Those 2 are living elsewhere (not here, and with no other birds) and I thoroughly disinfected the coop run area a month ago. So here is the new crew: 4 cuckoo maran hens, 7 EE hens, 1 black sex link hen, 1 Delaware hen, 1 RIR hen, 2 speckled sussex hens, 1 Silver laced wyandotte hen, 1 barred rock hen, 1 barred rock roo, 1 buff orpington roo, 1 buff hen, 2 buff laced polish, 1 golden polish. I intend to keep them for their whole lives so I wanted a motley crew! I am posting this as a lesson to all: NEVER introduce an adult bird without quarantine! I am like a proud daddy with my new chicks though!
