    So I went out to the local aiction site and bought 4, mother hen and 3 chicks.

    Here they are...


    And here is fugly..


    So what do I have here, I know fugly is some sort of frizzle...and the third one seems to be a roo.

    They are couped out the back in a seperate run/coup I put together in a few hours out of an old dog kennel.

    It seems unusual to be able to pick up a chicken with one hand...

    they're a bit flighty at the moment, but hopefully they will get to realise I mean them no harm.

    Quote:my flock of the original 6 I had has grown to 36.

    It consists of

    Orpingtons, Blue, Splash, Lavender
    Light Sussex
    Mungrels as I call them
    And now 4 bantums.

    Clipped the mother hens wing yesterday, as she keeps flying out the run, and gets seen to by the bigger girls. Hoefully she'll still be in the coup tonight.
