1 of the 5 rescues, and bosses now (they are much older than my girls). I call her BR, most of the young ones call her much worse, she's a bully.

    Holy cow, Curt- pace yourself!!! LOL! A couple of observations: you have a lot more than two cockerels in that bunch- if you can’t keep more than one or two you may want to start thinking about a backup plan for the next couple of months when they begin crowing.

    And try fitting some chicken wire around the feeder corner pan so the birds can’t scoop it out so easily. I show pictures of what that looks like on my blog in that DIY PVC feeder article.

    Chicken math has taken control of your backyard. You’re in big trouble now. LOL!

      Which do you think are boys? I thought so, but was REALLY hoping against there being more than 2!

        If you can share numbered photos that show a side profile of each bird, it would make the process much quicker for me to identify the roos for you.

    Curt, you are one ambitious chicken dad. Love your variety though. Happy pecking!

    What are you going to do with the chicks? I thought it was egg production but with that many you’ll get sick of eggs pretty quick, wont you?
