We have chickens! We have silver and golden laced wyndottes, 1 EE, 2 RIR chicks being raised by a GLW, and 5 fluffy brahmas! We love our chickens as much as we love our birds! Just wondering who else might have them. We have only been keep them for about a year and a half so its been an adventure.

we have a handful of spoiled rotten hens - different varieties - I have a silver lace wyandotte named Lucille that thinks she is the boss of the chicken yard :lol:

we also have a Black Star, Buff Orphington and an Easter egger cross of sorts that thinks she's a dog :rolleyes:


yours are gorgeous!! :heart:

We had a few when I was a kid, I would love to have them again one day, I love yours, makes me want to research the different kinds of chickens we'll commonly find here in the states :D

I always wanted chickens, but I live in the Boro and they are not allowed, being termed 'livestock'. Always wanted some bantam hens.

Thanks everyone! We had just moved to Burleson when we found out we were technically outside the city limits and could have them. We were so excited! Here are a few more pics. One is of my youngest holding Big boy when he was less than a year old. You couldn't do that now! and the 017.jpg other is of my oldest holding Rose, my favorite hen. She almost died as a chick and I nursed her back to health. She is the biggest fluffiest chicken out there now!
