I wonder if she’ll have chicks in a few weeks... or hatching eggs now. I’m on a mission to have every color Orpington in my flock. Currently I have buff, black, blue, red, lavender, mottled (maybe - I have three grow outs that all look like Roos) jubilee, and silver laced. Lost my gold laced and chocolate double laced girls last month to a hawk. They were HUGE and I never would have guessed that they’d be taken. My two favorite birds.If your serious I can connect you with her. She's got a good selection of rare genetics. She's pretty fairly priced too. I've got 3 birds from her so far and they're "all" great.
The Ayam Cemani cockerel is a butthead, but he's a good representation of the breed. Her AC are bred towards Indonesian standard. They're more game like, and he just doesn't like being in 2nd place. (Sully is twice his size though, so he doesn't contest it either)
I had 24 chickens. Down to 18 hens and 2 roosters.Just a recap...
What's everyones flock numbers looking like? And what are you hoping to add/subtract??
Currently my flock is 4 chickens (all hens), 2 ducks (drake and a hen), and 2 crazy geese (goose and gander).
Wouldn't mind adding a couple more pullets even though I'm overflowing with eggs as is. Waiting to see how the summer with my duck pair goes to see if I need to add more female ducks...so far so good though.
