New Blog/Photo Blog, dedicated to my chickens! =)
this Spring.. Henny & Spunky-Rooster (assuming he/she is a he lol).
Oh, and that's Bucky Duck, in the back. lol
2 days old..
I put my hand in the brooder,
and he came up to me.. He's my baby! lol
Bucky Duck, a couple days old =)
Bucky and Izzy
This is a beautiful rooster.
Breed? Not sure.. But *so* pretty!
Need to get a photo of him, full body, in the sunlight!
He came with some hens I took in....
He's not tame, i'm working on that.
He's very aggressive with the girls,
so he has to have his own "Bachelor pad". lol
Here he is again.. Huge comb and wattle! lol
I'm guess "he" is infact, a "rooster".
I thought so, when I first got him..
But, so far no crowing..
And, he looks a bit like my White Leghorn hen!
But.. He is really starting to look like a little rooster, now.
What breed is she??? lol
Those tan freckles on her wings, no idea!
She was a Tractor Supply chick..assorted bin.
She is so sweet. Sassy! But sweet. lol
He's a little more tame, but not 100%.
(The deer had been hit by a car on the highway, recovering well!)
This series of photos are comical! lol
I had put a plastic egg in the temporary "nesting box",
to get the hens to start using it as a nesting box.
I think I confused this chicken. Really, I do. lol
The beige egg is real, fwi. =)
On top of chicken pen. lol
He loves his "hammock", lays out there all day! lol
This one came from my White Leghorn.
They lay an average of 1/2 a dozen to a dozen a day,
at this point.
The Delaware hens
Some are worse than others, by far!
Their feathers were a mess when I got them,
but are starting to (slowly) fill back in, now.
The previous owners kept the roosters with the hens,
and they are *very* aggressive with the girls.
Have to keep the boys separate now,
and the girls are much happier!The coop, not completed! lol
More photos and blogging, soon!
