I've been invaded lol
aww how cute! Glad I'm not the only one that uses an old oven rack for a brooder top! if that is what it is lol
It's a piece of an old ferret cage lol
I love finding new ways to use stuff.
What is the white and black chick? So cute!
Do you already have chickens? If not, you'll be hooked quickly. haha I have like 200 (not joking, they just seem to appear).
There's one Black Australorp cockerel
Four Black Australorp pullets
Two spotted Leghorn pullets
Two white Leghorn pullets
It looks like the free Meyer meal maker is a third White Leghorn pullet
The three Buckeyes are Intrepid Dreamer's
I just lost the last of my hens. They were aged twelve. The old Leghorn rooster is still out there so, he'll be glad of some company. Lately he's been trying to convince the neighbor's Wyandotte to move to our house but she can't fly like he can lol
Hahaha what a good boy. We have them just come in from the jungle here so never any lonely chickens. 12 is a good old age for a hen, curious if they were hatchery or from a breeder? I've found my hatchery hens don't live nearly as long as the wild/feral mixes around here.
That group was from Meyer hatchery as well.
I've found that the heritage breeds do much better than the fancy types.
Wow. The longest we've had a chicken live is 3 years
Dayna, your life sounds SO exotic to me!
Ours seem to live forever too! We have way to many roosters
Chicks are always fun....I am down to 64 chickens thank goodness. Twelve is a good long age!
I'm down to 10 now, Intrepid Dreamer picked hers up.
Funny thing is that the whole group had been squabbling and picking on each other. As soon as those weird looking brown chicks left they all settled down and are fine cuddling up lol.
Okay, I was too lazy to look up the spelling of the black and white chicks earlier. They are Exchequer Leghorns.
Wow I'll have to look that breed up! So cute!
We have a cackle surprise box on the way... I can't wait to see what and how many we get.
We have about 30 chickens already. We are chicken hoarders lol
Surprise boxes are always fun.
One of the chicks didn't develop at all over night and didn't seem the be really eating even though going through the motions. Her balance is off a bit.
I put half a cc of high level vit b in a pint of water and fixed some chick mash. She's beginning to eat now and the healthy ones are running around eating everything in sight lol
Sooooo cute! I always have to be careful because I only live 45 minutes from Meyer Hatchery!!!!
It's just way too easy to be all like "Let's see what I can go and pick up today!"
Then I get there and it's like "Oh yes....I would love to buy more from your $1 mystery bin. Thanks!"
Makes me happy, my husband....not so much
oh wow, it's a good thing I don't live anywhere near a hatchery. It's also not a good thing that i own an incubator lol I've been somewhat good this year though. I can honestly say I do NOT have ANY eggs in either one of my machines. I did pretend not to notice 2 broody hens though and now we have 6 chicks outside. "Where did they come from?!" hehe
