Who has chickens?!

Anyone? I have 11 chickens, barred rocks, Silver laced Wyandottes, and an "unknown breed"(were supposed to be buff orpingtons but don't look anything like them).

I have a barred rock pullet who is 4 months old. She was sat on(as an egg of course!) by one of my broody Wyandottes and hatched July 13th. Hasn't started laying yet!

I have chickens! 6 of them. A Barred Rock/Easter Egger rooster, 2 Buff Orpingtons & 2 Easter Egger pullets! They're about 21 weeks old, and no eggs yet. It seems though, that one of my Buff's (Lucy) is POL though. Raised them from chicks.

I haven't had a backyard to have backyard chickens in ages. :( I used to raise and show Japanese and B.B. D'uccles.

All animals deserve respect, not just the cute and pretty ones.
Without "bugs", we would lose about 1/3 of our food, be nose high in decay, and entire ecosystems (including everything that supports the popular animals!) would collapse.

We have one chicken named Tiki. She is a redstar hen, mostly just a barnyard pet.

Use to belong to the guy next door but she was set for slaughter when she came to live at our house. i guess you can say she adopted us really and ever since then has never left our barn.
