Several times a year we have to rearrange our chickens. We have a wonderful Amish chicken coop that has two large sides that go into separated fenced yards. We also have a third section that is for chicken feed and a chick brooder cage. Chickens have a habit of not being accepting of other chickens that they don't know or are different sizes, so we always separate new chickens or smaller chickens. This morning, this momma that has been hoarding as many chicken eggs as she could gather (most of them not hers), hatched her first baby. We went out to move all the adult chickens to the other side, so her baby won't get picked on.
This Americana rooster was hatched from our spring eggs. Although he wouldn't look at the camera, he is huge and isn't he gorgeous? The good news is that he is currently a nice rooster - they aren't always!
While we were out, we also moved the brooder babies out into the coop. We closed the outside door on their side because they could still fit through the fence, but it gives them the chance to start pecking in the mulch.
