    Healthy birds, great mix

    We ordered 25 chicks, received 28. Upon arrival, one chick was somewhat lethargic and I thought it would not make it. But a little bit of food and water with electrolytes did the trick. We lost one chick after 5-6 days (not the same one who was lethargic). The rest of them are doing great. We got a mix of 8 easter eggers, 7 red jungle fowls, 1 black breasted red old English game, 7 brown leghorns and 4 that are likely Black standard old English (I thought they were Australorps but they are smaller than Australorps would be at this point). At this point (4 months old) it seems we only have 1 cockerel (Easter Egger – he has beautiful colors). That is quite a pleasant surprise although I am hoping one or two of the smaller birds will surprise me. I would prefer to have 2-3 roosters with a flock this size. The Easter Eggers and Brown Leghorns are quite social. They run up to us and are not as flighty. The game birds will come when scratch feed is thrown to them but they are the last ones to show up. They like to fly and a couple of them want to roost in a tree instead of the coop. They mostly forage in a mostly wooded area (thus the reason for ordering this free range special) and like to stay under cover of the vegetation. One thing that we had trouble with while they were in a brooder was pecking/feather pulling. I have raised many batches of chicks in the past and have never had this much trouble with pecking. Even providing double the necessary space, high protein food and extra protein, the chicks still ended up with missing feathers on the back and tail. I probably should have had multiple brooders but I was not set up for that. The only thing that resolved this permanently was allowing them to free range once we got to 7 weeks or so. The game birds were definitely the biggest contributors to this issue and in the past we had more mellow breeds.

    Great mixture, fun birds

    We received our 15 predator resistant chickens along with some other birds 10 weeks ago. At first we thought that all 15 were the same kind of bird. They all looked like chipmunks. But as they began to grow, we could start to identify a few different breeds. We’re still figuring out what they all are. Some of them love being with people, others are very stand offish.
    Last week we moved them outside. They love it. The predator resistant birds are very good at sounding the alarm and running under the coop whenever a big bird flies over head.
