:welcome

 

We have 2 Speckled Sussex in our mixed flock and I love their sweet dispositions, plus they are very pretty. If you want plenty of eggs to supply the 3 households, you might want to check into Black Australorps or sex link chickens (the red or the black)...those all are great egg layers.

 

Nice to have you here!

We are not allowed to have roosters but I can understand why. Most of us are in subdivisions and roosters could be annoying to non chicken lovers.
