Chick Order Anyone?
I'm in love with my three laying hens that I have. But they are going to be three years old. They've stopped laying for the past few months ( I do not blame them!) and I'm looking at getting around 6-10 hens. Of course one needs to order 25 chicks at a time to ship so I'm looking for friends who may have some of these available, or would like to go in on an order with me. I have no problem raising them until they are started and can ship them to you.
I of course NEED two Blue Laced Red Wyandottes from Jerry or Nancy. ahem....
Then of course one or two of each of the following, in no particular order:
Golden Laced Wyandotte
Silver Laced Wyandotte
Aside from those I really like the Lakenvelder, WhiteFaced Black Spanish, Buttercup and Golden Campine but not sure if they are good layers. Will have to research more.
These will all be free range come spring time and the egg layers seem to really be a lot more friendly than the Old English Game Bantams that I have. But those OEGB sure are fun to watch!
So. Without wanting too much chicken math....who's in with me?? :)
