Another Post About Chickens

Ok, so a couple of months ago I ordered 25 pullet (female) chicks plus 1 mystery chick from a hatchery and got 2 roosters from my second cousin. As you may remember. We lost 1 rooster and a few of the chicks so now I have 22 chickens and 1 rooster. Or so I thought. As it turns out, 3 of the chickens are roosters. That's 4 roosters in total. I did not need quite that many! Ha ha Oh well. The best I can tell, the mystery chick appears to be a Pheonix rooster so we are calling him Arizona.

By now, I would probably be getting some eggs but since it's winter, they may not lay until spring. I guess we will see. I've been checking every day just in case.
