My new chickens

I haven't had chicks for probably 4 or 5 years but my poor old girls are getting so old that they don't lay much anymore and the rooster is just something to look at. One old girl especially doesn't see too well or maybe has a touch of dementia but she has a habit of getting lost at night and I have to go looking for her in the other buildings and bringing her home. Cull them? Nooo. They've been around too long. I think the oldest of them are maybe 10. Anyhow I sent for some chicks. They arrived the 27th of April. 5 varieties were supposed to be mine and 1 my grandson's. I still have his. Oh well. There were Black Minorcas, Buff Orpingtons, Salmon Favorelles, White bantam Sultans, Red Jungle Fowl, and Cuckoo Marans. There is 1 little stray in the bunch that I have no idea what he is. Definitely bantam. Presently speckled red and black. Rose comb. I'd take a picture but at present, i can't get them off my camera. My thoughts were to keep 5 or 6 hens from each bunch and a good rooster or two. I am really enjoying the different personalities of each variety. They are all together at present but hope to have them separated into groups by fall. I work really slow anymore and need help with some of the heavy stuff but maybe I can snare a son or grandson to give me a hand after haying??. Try anyway.
