My Backyard Chickens

video

Here is a little video of my baby chicks! They were born on August 1, 2015. We got them in the mail on Aug. 3rd and they were in perfect shape!

We are part of a pilot backyard chicken program in our town. Sadly one of them turned out to be a rooster, so we had to take him to a farm in Wisconsin. I was really sad about it but he was crowing up a storm! Not exactly conducive to suburban living!
The Speckled Sussex turned out to be a rooster!

So now we have 3. We got our first egg on Christmas day!

We have 3 different breeds. An Easter Egger, a Golden Laced Wyandotte, and a Buff Orpington. They are all wonderful layers.
