Tonight we picked up three little day-old ameraucanas are peeping under the heat lamp.Note the pretty egg colors.
Tomorrow, I am picking up some Gold Penciled Hamburgs, full-grown and laying.
Next Wednesday, we'll fetch up 2-3 Golden Wyanndotes. That will bring us to 5-6 in our first of two rounds of chickies.
Then we have to wait until the end of March for the second round. I found some Lakenvelders available on March 24. I'm hoping to find some of these by then, to put them in the nursery with the Lakenvelders:
Spangled Russian Orloff
Silver-Penciled Egyptian Fayoumi
White Faced Black Spanish
I can mail-order them from specialty hatcheries, but I can't meet the minimums. Want to go in on some with me?
Here is what we have, in case you are curious:
- Black Polish Crested (1 hen, 1 roo)
- Gold SexLink (1 hen)
- Rhode Island Reds (2 hens)
- California Grey (2 hens)
- Barred Rocks (2 hens)
