Meet the Chickens!

I am now officially up to 24 chickens, 2 geese and 1 turkey. Originally I had gotten 2 turkeys, but one was a failure to thrive and therefore had to be put down. I originally had about 25 chickens, of which 6 were Cornish Rock meat crosses. These birds are currently in “freezer camp.” Anyway, the chickens I have include Easter Eggers/Ameraucanas, Barred Plymouth Rocks, Brown Leghorns, Golden Sex-links (hybrid), Black Sex-links (hybrid) and Buff Orpingtons.

Almost all the chickens are close to laying age. I figure within a month or so, I will have fresh eggs. How cool will that be?

This is Watcher, my Barred Rock hen.

 This is Hawk, my Easter Egger.

 Oops, I see a Rooster among the Rhode Island Reds!
