Yes! Thank you for asking! I am still doing that chicken "thaanng"!
Currently the flock is between 20 or thirty something and if they stood still long enough I might get half of them counted...or not. They all reside happily together at One Cackle Way.
One thing I know for sure is that I have about 4 roosters too many and the rest are hens. Oh and the other thing I know is that those boys have to "go" before spring. One way or another.
I have never been a cost effective flock keeper. I run more of a retirement home and shelter than anything. Culling is very difficult especially when I have had these boys since they broke out of the egg. And they are gorgeous!
I love the way the sun brings out the iridescent colors of their feathers. Two are jet black with green, one is black and white barred with green and the last has orange, red, black and green.
They are all tremendously friendly, will free range, follow me around the yard and come when called.
If you know anyone who might be looking for a big handsome fellow or two, please give them my info or leave a comment below. Oh yes and that ^^^^ is referring to the chickens only!
