Today I have 14 chickens '( 12 hens 2 roosters) and 10 ducks (3 drakes 4 ducks 3 unknown sex right now). Tomorrow I will have 35 chickens, 13 ducks, 2 geese, and 2 turkey. (The babies should be here tomorrow)
I have 9 laying hens (3 red sexlinks, 2 RI Reds, 2 silver laced Wyandottes, 2 brown Sussex), one rooster (RI Red, I think), one Americauna pullet, & one Barred Rock pullet. So I guess that's 12 in all.
However, I'm thinking of giving 2 to a friend who wants laying hens for her & her son. But then I'll probably go get myself a few more!
Currently I have 17 hens and 5 roosters. I lost a rooster over the weekend. He fell out of the tree and broke his neck in the night. The hens are doing well, but one 4 year old production rock is looking like she is "fizzling" It's the first signs, I think coming back into lay is taking its toll on her, her eggs are pale in color and very thin shelled. So I may lose her and that would give me 16 hens.
I'm planning on getting peeps next Spring. With all the photos and excitement here it's tough not to get some!! I just don't have the $$ or the space right now.
