I guess hen would not be satisfactory either...I'll work on it; she looks familiar. Her color is similar to my Ameraucanas, but the comb is wrong. I can't think of a breed that looks like her with a single comb and dark legs.
porkpal thanks for the help.
We were given 5 of them. We are just starting out. I think she is so pretty and named her LucyLue.. Only because we're raising them for layers not to eat. When we start with the game I won't name. These are the 5 that we got. We are thinking Dominecker, maybe Leghorn and don't know about the others...just a guess though.
I think you were right about the barred hen being a Dominique - judging by her comb. She is also rather slight for a Barred Rock unless she is quite young. Could the brown ones be Brown Leghorns? Do you know what color eggs each is laying? I am still puzzling over the first hen. Is it possible that they are a mix of breeds?
This is true, they are expensive to feed. Much cheaper to buy eggs. Not sure how these corporations feed all these chickens so cheaply. What exactly are they feeding them? I probably have 22 bantam chickens, half are roosters. My chickens get a lot of scraps too.
Chicken scratch here is $13.50 for a 50 lb bag. I'm not sure how much they are eating, but I buy 3 bags at a time usually. Just not positive how long they last me, seems like it is about a month.
