Cornish rock!

a wile ago, we got ten Cornish rock chicks. do not be confused with Cornish cross chicks. two of them died:c. now, they are so big, even thew they are still chicks. they must be 1-2 pounds already. look up cornish cross chickens, or cornish rock chickens. next time we are getting meat-eaters, we will get ranger chickens, who wont have a heart attack because they are so big. we also will get ranger chickens because cornish rock are not very good at getting to the coop and back, and we take the food out so they cant get to it, and the other chickens are starving in the morning.

ducks

about 5 weeks ago – sorry i didn’t post sooner!- we got pekin ducks! we also got Cornish rock chickens- i will post in a wile. at first, we got two ducks, but then we went back to the store and got eleven more ducks, so now we have 13 ducks!the females and a male we can keep over the winter, so we can hatch baby ducklings! we have not seen baby ducklings yet, because the ducks we got were a week old, so we are very excited about hatching baby ducklings!

chicken name!

Astra’s chick has a name now! its name is rural. we think it is a boy, but we hope it is a girl. rural looks just like Astra. i wonder is soaring – eagle had hatched them, they would have looked like her, or gotten some of her magic. soaring – eagle had magic to escape anything! she was a small jersey giant chicken. we think she used her energy to get magic instead of growing

hatchling!

Astra hatched a chick!it is white. it is a green queen- breese chicken cross. or a rusty- queenington cross. we named it a rural- queen. its name is-okay it has been weeks, and i cant think of a name for it! post in the comments what you think it’s name should be!

turkeys!

the turkeys live in the coop now! we also put them in the chicken tractor, so they are getting along with the chickens. the Brest roosters are pecking at them along with Astra, our Astra white chicken (you can see why we named her that!).

breese chickens!

a couple months ago, we got breese chickens! now, they are laying eggs that are fertilized! breese chickens are meat-eaters. we got too roosters(boys), and 4 hens(girls). we also got rode island reds. my mom and dad think they are both hens, but i think they are a rooster and a hen.

rooster crowing!

today, our rooster crowed! we also put the bees in our hives! but the rooster crowing was the most exiting thing! the first time, he said “cocadoodl” without the “doo”. but putting the bees in the hives was still very fun!
