Pictures of My Chickens

The Buff Orpington hen. 

My Light Brahmas.

Three of the five "Bennets"--two of the three Leghorns, and Mrs. Bennet, a Red Sex Link.

I have eleven chickens--10 hens and a rooster.  I had 12, but one died over the summer. In addition to those pictured, I have a Barred Rock/Leghorn mix, and two Barred Plymouth Rocks. Henry, the rooster, is an Orpington.

You will hear a great deal about these over the semester.  They are fun to watch and interact with, and they lay delicious eggs!

Ms. Smith,
I never knew chickens could be so attractive, nor did I know that there were so many types of chickens. Your chickens are obviously loved and well taken care of. When I say, "well taken care of", I mean that they looked groomed, baithed, combed, fluffed and perfumed! Ha!

They do all the "grooming" themselves. I imagine giving a chicken a bath is similar to giving a cat a bath--not something I care to do!
