It's a mix of different breeds, because I could.
Including pictures of adult birds which are not my pictures (from feathersite.com), just to show what they will hopefully look like someday. This first group are just hatchery pullets so we will see.

2x Gold-Laced Wyandotte


2x Australorp


1x Speckled Sussex


2x Brahma, 1 Buff and 1 Light


1x Partridge Rock

The girls are six weeks old now. Moved them from the basement to the outbuilding. They still have a heat lamp on one side of their current 3x8 enclosure, in case they need it.

All eight are doing well. The smaller GL Wyandotte turned out to have a bit of an underbite (underbeak?) which was impeding eating and probably the reason she was smaller than the others at 3 weeks when I got them. My mistake for not catching it before bringing them home, but a very minor surgery on a not-too-thrilled chick shortly after they came home left her in much better shape and she seems to be gaining at the same rate as the others now, though she can't seem to actually catch up.

Also, Mira's interest in the chickens is definitely not healthy. For the chickens. Trieverdog has birds on the brain.

LOL the random question to post this comment was "how many eggs are in a dozen"

Anyway... I've been enjoying following these pictures. My husband and I talked about making a space in our yard for 2-3 chickens this summer, but some unexpected home repairs has pushed that project back a year. In the meantime, I am going to watch and learn vicariously from your experiences.

If I may ask, why did you select the breeds that you did? We can't quite decide what we would want. We are looking for a decent egg layer, but something pretty to look at as well. I'm interested to hear how you made your decisions on that matter.

Best of luck! Please, keep us updated.
