Chickens

(Link)
We went to the farm store the other day, still looking to see if they had Black Langshams. Of course they didn't. I had gotten two off Craislist, and hands down they are THE most beautiful, gentle, incredibly friendly chickens out of our eight breeds. We bred them last year and got a girl and three roosters (upping us to FOUR roosters)... and the four got along marvelously, never fought, never came after the kids. They're just NICE.

Then we got Randy - an Americuna male. I thought it'd be okay, because the Americuna hens are very mild mannered, but he is a total BASTARD, I'm telling you. I don't tend him, anymore - he attacks everything that looks at him wrong. He'd be dinner if it were for the fact that we promised one of his babies to the people we got him from. It's a shame, because he *is* gorgeous.

FOUR Langshan roosters (that's the actual name - I looked it up at the farm store) and they're ALL beautiful, HUGE, and gentle as the day is long. But Randy? HoMiGosh...

I'm hoping we don't hatch out a lot of roo's.....but the kids know that if we do, they go in the pot. I do NOT want roosters! We have too many breeds roaming around - we'd never know who bred who...and I don't want mean chickens. :sigh:

Hadn't looked at Langshans....I need to. Maybe for the next round of chicks/eggs.......:hmmm:
