Guys y'all are making me want chickens! Im adding that to the list for when we get some land. Goats, chickens, and turkeys. Have y'all ever raised your own turkeys? I did for FFA on expensive show feed and they dressed to be at least 35 pounds! We had to cut them in half to fit in the oven/freezer.

Thanks for the offer of hog extermination! I will let you know on that one - I want to get first shot at the bugger myself and maybe I'll get lucky.

Two of my McMurray chicks are cuckoo maran hens. The first time I saw those dark eggs at a friend's house, I knew I just had to have some next time I needed more chicks.

This weekend these guys/gals will get to move from the horse trailer to the 'teenager' pen where they will stay until they get to be the size of the others then they'll get to join the existing flock, and the white leghorns will remain to be fattened for a couple more weeks then processed. My trailer is disgusting - it is TIME.

First two pics are the McMurray Hatchery shipment I got mid February (I tried to get all the breeds in)...the last pic is the 'mystery chick' they included in my order. I think it must be some sort of Brahma breed since it doesn't look like any of the Cochin breeds?

I love that polish!! Ok, I have to share - When I was in FFA in high school, I had some crazy mixed breed chicken that was so ugly. It had the polish pop knot, the fugliest flappy thingy (I can't remember what it's called) and it's feathers looked like a homeless man in winter attire. I took it to the state fair and entered it in the "ugliest chicken contest", and won! I was so proud of my ugly chicken. I wish I had pictures of it. I can't even remember what ever ended up happening to it.
