My geeky quest for heritage breed chickens began in 2017.
I started my flock with 16 chicks.
They were a mix of Silver Spangled Hamburgs, Dominiques, Dorkings, and Crested Polish.
I purchased the day-old chicks from Meyer Hatchery and they arrived in the mail!
Over the past three years, our flax has waxed and waned as hens went broody and hatched clutches, and foxes had uninvited feasts.
We peaked with 26 birds during the summer of 2019, which was too many!
We now have 6 hens living in our backyard run.
