I saw some bantam Cochin chickens but I wanted the bigger ones. There was one person selling them. I bought all her hens and one rooster. So I came home with 4 chickens. The chicken lady lives in the town that I work in, I will talk to her later on this week and buy some more hens from her. I want 10 hens, not three.
Neilsville big claim to fame is the Worlds biggest talking cow! No, I did not pay the .25 to hear it talk. I'm cheap that way! I brought back the chickens in my truck tote that I carry jumper cables, rope, jack, and other stuff in. I dumped that all out and put them it it and came home. I took this picture of them in the tote. The rooster had his wings out and the hens were under them. They were very docile. I just picked them out one by one and put them in the pen. Once in the pen the did some soft clucking and that was about it. I gave them food and water and they started to eat the food.
This one hen has a bare patch where she has been picked on. I think that it's from the rooster, which is why I need more hens! I will keep them in the pen for a few days and then let them go outside to be free range. I think that they will be happier being able to roam and scratch around.
