Hey all, I am starting up a new flock north of Houston. First time raising birds, with a momma of unknown origin and eight chicks. Built a quick pen, with plans to expand this weekend. The neighbor's free range flock was ravaged by a couple of strays, and these guys were spared. They weren't injured, but he was struggling to keep them alive. I couldn't say no when he asked if I would take them. I am guessing she is some variety of banty, as she's pretty small compared to the reds my brother used to raise. Two days in, so far so good.
