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. 😩

Most of the roosters I’ve owned are jerks, haha! The only exceptions being any serama roo and my silkie - RIP. I miss him as our flock leader. I inherited a lavender ameraucana from my mother in law and he was always attacking me. I’m not a fan of that breed anyway, they just look mean. Eventually one of the 4H families wanted him, even after I fully disclosed his buttheadedness. I still have his last baby, a roo that looks just like him but not a meanie, he just gets no respect in the flock. Once I find him a ho, no more ameraucanas for me.

My son really wants some diverse egg color layers in the flock since he sells the eggs to friends and family. He thinks he’ll sell more. Hah, already a salesman. I’m hoping we get some females out of the isbar or crested cream legbar eggs that are going in the incubator today.
She normally does. Chickens are her fulltime getup. Here a list that she normally has available.

How old is your son? Sounds like he's getting a good business plan together. ;)

So you have SL Eng Orps huh? Do you have a SL male too?

Best of luck helping the poor thing. Have you tried calling any wildlife resources around you? I think it's awesome you're trying to help, and I'd probably do the same thing. It's a big risk, just be careful.
Yes I did. I called last night, couldn't come since the drive is long and it was getting dark. Nearest game commision is about 1 1/2 hours away, that's all we have here along with a wild bird rehabilitation in a different county though.

21 ducks in 3 breeds. 16f-5m
5 quail. 4f-1m
5 Turkey. 1m-4 gallons of stock
A lot of chickens in a lot of breeds. ??f-??x2m

I want more ducks! Actually I want to go to just Runners. I'd love to add some blue and chocolate to the flock. The Ancona are almost as cool, they might even be prettier, but Runner personality just can't be beat.

That really sucks you can't get any help.
I'm sorry.
