well, we've also recently become chickenpeople.  the egg guy at one of the farmers markets we do brought some 8 week old plymouth rock hens, and made us an offer we couldn't refuse.

JP I think you are looking at it all wrong. How far do you live from that park that you mentioned. Get a large bag of cracked, corn and make a trail from the park to your yard and pen them in. The price is good and your off to a good start raising chickens. If you attract to many just put some in the freezer. evil

God forbid I remove any of the chickens parkgoers are feeding, but the thought did cross my mind.

No architect here, been busting my butt to get these chickens housed. Made a semi-finished coop, that I will finish in a few days. 2 Buff orpingtons and 4 Easter Eggers is what I wound up with.

Here's some pics: http://picasaweb.google.com/pyxicephalus/November252009?authkey=Gv1sRgCOGHnaGr0oe2Cw#

My wife can name them if she wants to. I'm sure they'll be some that stand out more than the others in personality, perhaps these will get names. I don't quite know what to make of 'em myself yet, they're definitely strange creatures, don't seem like much is going on in those tiny little brains of theirs and that's fine by me as after they're finished laying they will become dinner. I will enjoy them for what they are but I don't foresee any emotional attachments happening. It is kinda cool to watch them go about their business, scratching and pecking and such.

Good Job JP. I like the way you put the lay boxes so you can retrieve the eggs from outside. They look like they are content in your pictures.Even if they are not, they will still taste the same. HUH ? Smiley

There's not much to eat on a dun-layin' hen.  Just saying.....

A couple of those EEs look like mine.  Those dogs look like they'd like to help those chickens out of that coop  evil

Too cute!  Next you'll be telling us you don't have the heart to eat their eggs.  I woman who buys eggs from us has that problem with her daughter.  The daughter won't eat them 'cause she says it seems like murder when you know where the eggs come from.    grin  We get a good laugh out of that one.

Pam has named some of hers as well.  There's Goldilocks, Lucy, Matilda, Prince Charming, Fat Albert, and the king of the roost is Fabio.  Yes, they all have their own personalities and it can be enjoyable watching them.  Good luck and enjoy them, and breakfast....

Nope, not like that. Definitely will be eating the eggs! I watched chicken tv for several hours today with the wife, as Ann called it. Hee hee, chicken tv, I like that.

Dang is it true though, chickens never stop moving, always scratching and pecking. For a while it just looks monotonous but their intent is actually with purpose as I witnessed several times them coming up with a newly sprouted seed or bug. Their eye sight is absolutely amazing, far better than ours.

JP, those Buff hens are the nicest birds - and the roos are equally nasty!   Stumpy was a BO, a huge beast, and mean as all get out!  We really shook up the pecking order out there when we ate him, Queenie, who was the top hen, was knocked right down to the bottom of the order!  That's what I mean about the pecking order getting shoken up, I don't think you'll have that problem, as you don't have a roo.  HennyPenny even beats up poor Queenie, and she used to be the lowest hen.  Abby is the other BO hen, she's a sweetie, always running up to me looking for treats.
