Here is my clan. Dang rooster has started attacking me. He may not be here too much longer. Anyway, I have 12 assorted chicks in my house. I plan to have an easter basket every time I go collect eggs. Hehehe. These are just brown layers ISA Browns, the chicks are black copper marans, blue splash marans and easter eggers. Should be fun!
I have been told that carrying a broom around with you is a good way to deter wayward roosters. I have a couple of barred rock hens that will peck your boots. All they really want to do is to force you to give them a treat. I tried the broom for a while. They attacked it instead of my boots. I don't think I want to wear flipflops around these chickens! These new babies will take my little flock up to 12 birds. The babies will be in the house for a while. Then they will go into a separate pen when they go out. Hopefully eventually they can go in with the big kids.
Some of the chicks we hatched out pure bred rhode island reds pictured.
These were the only pictures I could find of them we had a lot more but we had to give them away when we switched to a boarding farm I miss them still!
