    Chicken addiction

    I was addicted until I had to re-home a couple that went aggressive toward a Silkie pullet. Now we don't keep anything over 5-lb to prevent the temptation to bully gentler or smaller fowl. We whittled it down to 4 hens from 8 and only kept the gentler lighter weight fowl. BTW I like the breeds you have. How do they get along? I like 3 Silkies together but I feel sorry for any Polish alone in a flock as they are gentle and startle so easily because of their crest.

    Hi there! Im new here too. I also love in WA! In Bonney Lake area! Incubating 14 eggs, 2nd day. Easter eggers & cochins. Hoping to add more, depends on how many hatch and how many roosters I end up with. This is so exciting! My kids love it!

    Hello freedom from WA. How is your single Polish getting along with her flockmates? I always feel so sorry for crested breeds who are the only one in a flock. Crested breeds spook so easily and usually are so gentle. How did you manage to find Hollands and are yours laying white or tinted eggs?

    freedom from WA not responding

    Sent freedom from WA 2 replies but no answer so guess they aren't on the Forum any more. Oh well - sigh.

    Who has new babies? I have 37 so far but expecting 12 more turkeys on the 6th and another dozen hatching eggs the week after that, then I'm done; I think!
