My flock

New Blog/Photo Blog, dedicated to my chickens! =)

I started out with two little balls of fluff from Tractor Supply,
this Spring.. Henny & Spunky-Rooster (assuming he/she is a he lol).
Here they are about a month ago..
Oh, and that's Bucky Duck, in the back. lol

Henny, on her way home!
2 days old..

Spunky-Rooster, 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

Spunky Rooster..
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.

Miss Henny
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
This rooster also came with the hens, last month.
He's a little more tame, but not 100%.

Henny and the baby deer..
(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. =)

Butchie, the chicken guard..
On top of chicken pen. lol

He loves his "hammock", lays out there all day! lol

The first egg the hens laid, after taking them in!
This one came from my White Leghorn.

Have quite a few now! lol
They lay an average of 1/2 a dozen to a dozen a day,
at this point.

The Delaware hens

See where some of their feathers are missing?
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!
