Born and Raised Right Here

Click To Enlarge


All of these chickens were hatched by us except the bantams in the bottom right and bottom center.  The bottom right were hatched by China, our bantam hen, and the bottom center was hatched by the neighbor's hen.  Bottom left is Little Chicken, our soon-to-be mature rooster.  The top six are all hens from Perogi, our RI Red rooster (pea comb) and/or White Cornish Rock or Buff Orpington.

You've come a long way, baby! Just look at your intro when you and Mike didn't know much about raising chickens and look at you now! You should be so proud.

Awww, such lovely little girls. Great work! About the bantam, bottom center -- what kind? She reminds me of our seabright (downward wings, fancy tail.)

Renee, that bantam is mixed a hundred times over, but I'm sure there's seabright somewhere in there. I love that she's all white. Reminds me of a dove.
