Hansens Homestead

We are located in Timmonsville, SC.   We got our first chickens at a local auction.  I studied for months, trying to figure out what kind to get.  I had several on my list and the Silver Laced Wyandottes came up for auction first, so thats what I got.  I ended up bringing 4 home that first day.  (September 2011)   My husband built us a beautiful chicken coop big enough for at least 20 birds.  So we are gradually expanding.  I have 4 little fuzzy butts in the brooder that were born a week ago.  Silver Laced Wyandottes again.   February 2012... read more

MiMis_Place Swap page
