At this time, we have 10 laying hens about a year old and we get about 6-7 eggs a day from them.  We also have some younger girls, (we hope they are girls), we call teenagers and a few babies.  The babies are both boys and girls and the sex of them is undetermined at this time.  I thought I would share some pictures.  Some names have changed because the nick names have stuck.  Uno is called this because she had eye worm and only one good eye at that time, so the name stuck.  Berger King was originally named Queenie, but my son thought her crown looked like the Berger King crown, so this name stuck.  Owlie looks like and owl and Crow looks like a crow.  Half n Half is half Silkie and half Frizzle.  As she has grown, her naked black body filled in with white puff feathers and black and white frizzle feathers.  She is also half black and half white.  Multi has multiple colors, so that name stuck.  As you see, we lack the talent to name animals wonderful names.   If you have some great names, please share them with me.
