The chickens are all enjoying the cooler temperatures and time out in the yard.
This is the bulk of the ameraucana pen. At the moment I have 2 barred rocks, 6 black hens, three blue hens, a splash cockerel and a blue rooster in there. The blue roo and four of the black girls will be going to new homes before winter. I hope to hatch out a ton of splash and blue babies from this pen next year.
Won't it be interesting to see what a splash AM crossed with barred rock looks like?
This guy will be my new flock rooster next season. He hatched out earlier this spring and is coming along nicely.
