Junior and his harem
It isn't very often that I post about the little flock of chickens we have here on the ranch. But today I expanded Junior's harem by two and thought I'd share some pictures of our current flock. Junior is our very handsome rooster. He is good with the hens and has not caused us any trouble either, other than he likes to hang out in the doe barn during bad weather and at night.
They are all free range and this flock seems to be more adverse than previous flocks for staying in the coop at night, preferring to roost in the trees or the doe barn, which we do our best to discourage. They are a mix of breeds, including Anericaunas, Orpingtons, Wyondote and Rhode Island Red because, just like with my goats, I enjoy a variety of color in my pastures. We should start seeing some eggs from them pretty soon, if of course we can find them.
