The Girls

The Chickens or “Girls” as everyone has come to call them are my small flock of backyard chickens. Currently there are 30 chickens and one rooster in the flock. There are several breeds including Wyandotte, Ameracauna, Barred Rock, Rhode Island Red, Hamburg, Cuckoo Maran, Delaware, Black Austrolorp, Jersey Giant, Russian Orloff and Wellsummer. They produce eggs in various sizes and colors which are sold at a couple of local markets. They have a coop that they spend the night in and a large run for the daytime. They are also allowed to free range the property several hours a day. I love my chickens! They are entertaining, pay for their own food and are always back in before curfew, traits most parents long for!
