  I want to get some Delwares, the next time we purchase chicks. So finally sold all his 3 yr and older hens. So he only has 7 hens in his run. The he has 40 chicks in the brooder and 5 chicks running with their moms in the yard. Some on threw out a rooster over the weekend and it's be a nightmare trying to catch him with a net. So far since Friday he's been living in our red barn and the ladies have been closed up, P2 (our son) is scared that the roo will kill the lose babies. If only I can catch him and put him in a pen by himself. We don't need any more broody hens with the amount of chick that we got and I need eggs since I have to beef up the protein in the two youngest pigs that our son has. Chickens are like watching a soap opera on tv with out using any electricity....LOL

  Thanks for the info
I appreciate your info on the Speckled Sussex and other heritage breeds. They certainly sound like they have most of what I would like in a chicken.

The Speckled Sussex sounds like a good chicken for me to investigate for my soon to be developed chicken coop with chickens.

  How do you like your S. Sessex chickens? Last yr for Easter we got our son three hens and a roo. Well the old battle ax Carmen (production red) ended the SS roo's life. Then we lost a SS hen to a coon. Then out of the two that we had left 1 got broody and hatched only one egg and the other left the place because she never layed.

  What kind of chicken is that?
Several people have asked about our lovely hen, Stella. She is a Speckled Sussex hen. They lay a light brown egg, are very docile and do extremely well on pasture. Stella is quite a character. You can read about her latest adventures in my recent post, 'In My Next Life I Want to be a Free Range Chicken' on my website www.farmgirlmedia.com.
