Congrats. Just please be smart about integrating them in with the others .... when the time is right, and carefully monitoring that slow interrogation process.

Re: New chickens on the homestead
Couple of questions?
How long do they lay eggs for?
What do you do with them after they stop laying? Soup?

Reason I ask- Im in the burbs of Chicago- we can have up to 7 hens if yard is fenced!
No roosters though..
Im tempted to f*ck with TPTB and get 7 guinea hens. Ya think roosters are loud??

I think they lay good for a couple years or so then slow down. Soup is good

Re: New chickens on the homestead
Chickens are fun to watch, I must admit.. We had 2 roosters and their broods in the same space for a while, and I would always chuckle when the rooster, pecking around, would suddenly make some little noise, and all the hens would run over and peck in that spot excitedly

Such cute little things, really. The duck flock was also pretty neat, free-ranging it and all

Re: New chickens on the homestead
Very nice birds. I'm in the process of renewing my flock.

One of the chickens started eating the eggs and I'm really upset. I'm going to have to cull at least 2 before I bring the new ones.

Re: New chickens on the homestead
I have 16 Japanese silkies. 12 of them are almost 10 years old. They still lay and set constantly. Of the 112old enough to lay, atm 4 are setting on nothing because I took their eggs. It’s too cold for chicks but I still am getting 7-8 eggs every day.

Their eggs are smaller but I often have to give some away because these old girls never stop. We never run out of eggs. If you need some broody hens to constantly set , get some silkies. Just remember they are smaller and the larger hens may pick on them.

Someone gave me some motherless chicks and I did not have a hen setting at the time. So I waited until dark and put the chicks under one of the most motherly hens. I call her Little Mama lol! In the morning she was talking to them in chicken mommy language and raised them all perfectly.

She’s a good hen. :) I love my Silkies

Free range chickens are as tough as a boot. Seriously, you need a pressure cooker. I had one in the crockpot cooking for 3 days. Too tough to eat. If I have to cull, I just bury them in the garden. We gave up on trying to eat them.

I have silkies so they are still laying daily at almost 10 yrs. my other hens stopped long ago, they were close to 8 yrs when they passed. But I didn’t do anything when they stopped laying. They gave me eggs for years, they earned their retirement imo. But everyone’s circumstances are different.

The guineas will escape and roost in the trees and free roam the neighborhood if they aren’t enclosed with a top. Guarantee it. :)

Re: New chickens on the homestead
If you have children, Silkies are a good choice. They’re naturally tame and friendly. Plus they are great layers and astoundingly cute. I would post a pic if I knew how.

I’m sorry! I know it hurts. The neighbors piled firewood on their side of the privacy fence one year. I didn’t know. Their little dog climber it jumped in my yard and I heard the commotion just in time to see it grab my favorite most wonderful little hen and wound her. She died in my arms about 3 min later.

This was 5 yrs ago and I still miss her.
