I have had an awful fall in which predator break-ins have taken most of my hens (I lost ameraucanas, rumpless araucanas, and an easter egger hen - seven hens and one cockeral in total). I have four hens left (one silkie, one ameraucana, one easter egger and one tailed araucana). So I will be looking strictly for PULLETS this spring. No cockerals as I have plenty of those! I would hope again to get a rumpless araucana hen or two but they are hard to get in this area.
