they live outside.:D
Thought I'd share a few pics of my chickens.
This is Polish our polish crested rooster. I know real original name.:rolleyes: The back of his head had been plucked bald until we did away with our silky bantam rooster who was causing all types of problems in the coop. Polish wasn't the only one who started growing feathers back when we got rid of Silky. So glad to see his almost full crest. Just love his fluffy head.:heart:
Polish crowing

Strutting his stuff



Cinderella
She somehow broke her one leg this past summer. So put her in one of my spare flight cages for 6 weeks to heal up. My husband said she'd never lay again but she proved him wrong before she was even moved back to the coop she laid me a present.:D You can see how her right leg is alittle crooked. But she doesn't let it bother her.

Cinderella and Goldie

My son loves Goldie. The 2 of them have quiet the relationship. This past summer they'd lay out in the grass together.:heart:


We also have a Rhode Island Red Hen and a bantam rooster but somehow I missed taking their pictures the other day.

hehe, soo adorable! What cute chickens! We have 18 chickens! 1 of our hens also broke her leg last year, and made a full recovery. This is a picture of Joey, 1 of our roosters that we hatched out about 2 years ago.

Thanks everyone. :)

She is the sweetest of them all. She just lets me kids go right up to her and pick her up she never tries to get away unlike all the others. Was pretty funny this past summer when friends would stop by and there our kids would be packing around the chickens.:lol:

I'll have to see if I can dig up the picture of Polish when he was just a little chick. They look so funny. Which he is a pretty nice rooster won't run at you and spur you you have to be doing something to get it. Unlike the little bantam he'll come up to you an ddo just because. Always freaks me out when my kids go to close to him when they aren't listening.:eek:

Love your chickens. Polish is gorgeous! My grandmother always kept chickens. She was especially fond of banties. I was scared to death of those banty roosters :omg: She had one little banty hen, Brownie, that would sit in her lap & get petted like a cat. When Brownie had to poop, she'd hop down & go outside! Only house broken chicken I've ever heard of :) Grandma sure loved her chickens! Think she passed her "bird lover gene" on to me :confused:

Polish is gorgeous! I want a flock of bantams so bad but I'm afraid of predators killing them. What do I do?! How would I need cats, raccoons, coyotes, etc away??

We do have raccoons, foxes, and cats around here. We just let them out during the day and put them up when the sun starts going down if they haven't already put themselves back. Our neighbor actually had a raccoon kill one of his hens somehow acouple weeks ago even. Just make a good coop.:)
