This is his sister, who is the only feather-footed hen I got out of that batch. She is still filling out, but she definitly has the pantaloon thing going on.
Everyone has been doing fine. No sign of the hawk in a couple weeks now. The young hens have recently started laying, and so I pick up 7-9 eggs every couple days. It’s nice to finally have eggs coming in again. I’m kind of looking forward to chick season this year. Although I had planned to just slip feed-store chicks under any broody hens this year so I wouldn’t have to deal with roosters, I’m kind of curious to see what the chicks will look like coming from my buff hens and the blue cochin rooster, so I think I’ll let nature take it’s course and see what we get.
