New to the Flock

September 11th, 2017

This past week I added 11 new members to our flock. I purchased four young pullets from a young 4-H student in the area. Yesterday I picked up a flock of Silver Laced Wyandottes from local lady.


My plan is to slowly transition my flock the the motley crew of mutt chickens to mostly Silver Laced Wyandotte. After having a few different breeds, they have been my favorites by far. I like their personalities, their temperament, their free range ability, and their calmness. I’m also hoping to sell hatching eggs next year, I never had success finding any for myself so I figured there’s a need for hatching eggs for this breed in the area.

Do you have a favorite chicken breed?

    We have a mixed flock of several different breeds. We don’t have a rooster and I got the hens for egg production. This summer I had a silver laced wyandotte go broody and I was given some fertilized eggs from a neighbor. My SLW has been a great mother and is doing a great job raising the chicks. Good luck with your flock!
