Here at the Halpern Homestead we pride ourselves on having a very diverse flock. We try to have just one or two of a certain type of chicken, except the Delawares which just kinda happened. So, we have a great variety of types and colors of chickens here. Although we can and will hatch our own chicks, today we got a few different types of chicken that we don't already have in order to preserve or diversity.
This lil fella is "Bob", Bob is a White Crested Black Polish
This is "Louisa". She is a Rhode Island Red, a replacement for one lost to a coyote or a hawk this past summer posted here.
This is a "Rufus". Rufus is a Black Cochin, we have a blue cochin now named Fancy the $204 Chicken, who is just the best!
This is Denise, she is a replacement for a hen that also passed away this summer to an unknown cause.
This is Myrtle, another replacement to a hen lost this past summer to a dog.
This lil fella is "Allie". A white silkie whom we hope will befriend Mere the Mighty, our black silkie.
Baby chicks are my favorite. Such an exciting little creature that can bring happiness to anyone.
Thanks for reading!
