    The chicken thread

    The roo is an Easter egger and the two hens are black stars. I have no pure breeds, but hopefully this upcoming summer I'll have some.

    2.2 old english blue game banthams
    1.4 milie fluers bantams

    The new birds are Silver Dorkings. Arrived early summer, they haven't started laying yet. Flock of 14.

    The other flock is a mix of elderly banties, some barred rocks, one Easter egger mutt, and buffs. Also 14 individuals. They are all older, and really, ALL of them should go into the soup pot. Warning: if you get banties, they will hang around for many years, just because they are too cute and sweet to butcher.

    I really want to get into pigeons, but have decided that the chicken numbers need to be drastically reduced before making any more animal commitments.

    The wife's cats eat an all raw diet so even the bantams serve a purpose once they quite laying. i've been looking into pigeons but havent made a decision as of yet. they seem neat but not sure i'm ready to commit to that level of care and training yet.

    I hope I am allowed to post even though the topic has died, maybe I can raise it lol? I have some chickens a few different breeds, some ducks, turkeys, guinea fowl, and geese. The turkeys are so tame you can hold em, and when I took one to the vet for a check up last year the vet wanted to take pics for facebook, they said they never seen such tame turkeys.
