I was looking for 6-8 Ameraucana's........I ended up getting 21 hens!
I think they are older (than I was told), some are debeaked (all of the GLWs & 1 of the Black unknown's) and some were very underweight. I started out getting 2 eggs a day and now I am averaging about 5 eggs per day from the group. They are filling out and their combs continue to get more color in them each day. I think with a few more weeks of good, consistent feed and more daylight, I will give me some idea of what I ended up with. Does anyone have any suggestions for getting them back up to snuff? I would love any advice or input.
For the next couple of days I'm going to play "Name that Chicken" with you to see if we can figure out what my "unknowns" might be.
Here's the breakdown as I know it:
3 Gold laced Wyandottes
2 Silver laced Wyandottes
2 Solid Black Unknowns
2 Other Assorted Unknowns
....and this little red hen. She is tiny but her eggs are huge!
Does anyone have a guess as to what she is???
(My guess would be a Red Sexlink.)
I did get some of the prettiest Ameraucana's though.
