i'm yet another new person here. We have had hens for about 18mths. We keep them mainly for eggs and entertainment, and mostly have fun. We have Araucanas Maud and Berta, and mongrels Henrietta and Miss Laid. Araucanas Henny Penny and Morag were dispatched last weekend 'cos they hadn't laid for 5 mths. Last October HP hatched 2 mongrels Apollo (roo) and Artemis (hen), and in December Miss Laid hatched Araucana Prince Harry, and Barnevelders Barney 1 and Barney 2. We thought Barney 2 was Pippi Longstocking but I think we got the sex wrong. WE didn't do very well getting hens with our 2 broods! Oh well.

Hello and welcome to the forum - I love the names of your chooks! :)

I'm sure a few of us feel the same way about the hen ratio when hatching eggs (my most recent hatch was 3 boys, one girl!) but sometimes it will swing the other way and then you'll be feeling smug when everyone else is moaning about how many rooster chicks they have! ;)
