Life gets too busy and haven't had time to be on line much. Had to come check out what you were all up to!
10 of my laying hens went to a new home last week, wow do we miss the eggs! They were starting to molt, the yard looks like a feather pillow. I still have 6 Marans, 1 Barred Rock, 12 Welsummers, and 10 Easter Eggers. The Wellies and EE'ers won't be old enough to lay until sometime in November. I'm excited to see what the Wellies will lay, I ordered them as day old chicks from Whitmore farms, had to wait several months for them because of the long waiting list.
One again, my peacocks are goofy. They are very quiet. I cannot see my neighbors during the day, only their lights at night. But sound carries and several neighbors have mentioned that they didn't realise I had peacocks and they were surprised because, in their past experiences with peacock owners, they could here the noise very clearly. I must just have weird peacocks!?! My first male's name is Mr Chicken because he seems to like hanging out with my chickens rather than the other peacocks.
