New to this site! Just got some hens I think the ones I am adopting (Molasses and Bourbon) are Road island reds but mixed cause they are alot bigger than most. We got a coop and 7 hens for free the coop was very heavy and very difficult to transport but that's a different story.we got the coop to a friends house who was ecstatic. Conditions were very filthy and meager from the past owners. The coop originally housed 12 HENs! Keep in mind these girls are decent sized and this coop was horrendously small for these poor ladies. Ankle deep in @#$% and mud it was for them. It broke my heart. I have always loved chickens. So we ended up with seven hens the previous owners had gotten rid of 5 hens the day befor. We had three BIG road island reds one has a white color mutation we think these three are sisters then two smaller darker red hens and two barred rocks. The barred rocks are the victims of these other hens they in poor condition and have missing feathers around the vent and ones skin is bright red! They are very small their nutrition was little to none. We are splitting the girls up the two barred rocks are going to a friends house whom we already have a snug coop for those two and their long recovery (their bad.) and two big red ones are going to me (Bourbon and molasses) and a smaller red and the big whitish red one is staying at my other friends current residential point. I should have pictures up with in the next few days. And I'm some what new to chickens so any help and any advice would be MORE THAN WELCOMED. We have had them for about two and a half weeks now we are pretty much pumping them full of protein and other garden goodies. But what the big ones are no idea. I was thinking a road island red crossed with a brahama?? Ok I will quit babbaling . Thank for those who read this and for future advice! Thanks Ry.
