    Here is my flock. The GLWyandotte and the Buff Orpington have been traded off and I will be getting new chicks next week- hopefully will keep a Buff Orpington and a Buff Brahma. Maybe even a speckled Sussex.

    Nice colours I was hoping to get some buff Orpington’s as my new broody as I heard they are known for it?

    My Alberta (avatar)was a very determined broody hen. She had a normal brood a couple of years ago- hatched out sweet chicks. Last year, I think she stayed broody for almost 6 months- then molted. I tried everything in the world to get her off of brooding, but it didn't work. I finally gave up and got some eggs for her to sit- Then she stopped being broody- just contrary I think.
    She also is my alarm clock. At dawn, she comes to the gate with the others and she screams "AWK, AWK" until I come out and feed her. Does the same thing in the afternoon. LOL I think she thinks she is a rooster sometimes. I have to say, she is full of personality.

    Polish were my second choice when I started. They still are my top favorites. They seem to be very rewarding and friendly. The standard breeds like buff and wcb appear to be more docile and friendly. I have not had one Crele or Tolbunt that has been.

    I never wanted silkies. But one year I got silkie eggs because there was nothing else to hatch. I fell in love. Their flock structure and family-ness are nice. The roos are especially rewarding to me. They do have great personalities.

    Polish may need protection. I keep mine trimmed so they can see very well. Houdans are larger and put up with less BS. I keep my Polish and silkies penned in a 16x16 foot pen. They appear to like it better than free range. I let them out daily in a large covered fenced area . The pens are enclosed.

    Rick Astley? You're dating yourself, LOL!

    Make sure those black dots aren't stick tight fleas. Dirt rubs off easy. I have spent 5 months now trying to get control of them.
