    Got 4 chickens yesterday at the Faire. I have a lovely pair if Buff Rocks, a white crested polish Bantam, and a red comet (sex-linked). Not a bad start. Oldest is a year. Roo is 4 months and very gentle.

    Energyvet, what fair did you attend ? Are you from NH too?
    Chadsara, you are making me jealous with your Silkie chicks! We have a 2 sets of white silkies and they haven't laid an egg in months. I want to hatch some but have none to hatch!

    Kau, I went to the Sussex County Faire in NJ. I'm from NJ. If you look under the thread Energyvet, you'll see the photos I posted.

    Here's my new Roo, Napoleon. He's a buff rock.

    They are so fluffy! What kind of babies are in the picture? Do you keep your Silkie's in a different coop?

    Our laying flock consists of Dark Cornish, Light Brahmas, Dark Brahma, Barred Rocks, Partridge Rocks, Buff Orpingtons, and then separately I have 5 Seramas and two of their chicks (with eggs in the incubator!)

    Here's a pic of our laying flock this summer when they were going their their awkward stage. :)

    And here's my two Serama chicks who are starting to show a lot of personality at a month of age.
