Racer a brown leghorn and professional photo model

 

Hi all you feathered-friend-loving folks!

I've finally made a profile after lurking around here for years! We started our flock last spring, although I'd been indulging in chicken dreams long before that. I appreciate all the great info on this site and spent hours looking at all the coop designs before getting our chicks. 

 

We started with eight chicks of five different breeds: RIR, Buff Orpington, Easter Eggers, Silver-Laced Wyandotte and Brown Leghorn. Then our friend's co-worker, who'd bought chicks the same weekend we got ours, discovered she could only keep two, so our flock doubled overnight, adding a gang of Barred Rocks and two Black Australorps.

 

It has been great fun raising our gals and watching them grow--I just enjoy them SO much--it's hard to explain, but, of course, I don't need to explain it here, do I. 

 

Hope to get a page posted about our coop soon.

Happy new year and happy chicken days to all!

The pic is of Racer, our Brown Leghorn, who is quite a character and very photogenic!

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Thanks, she's one of our favorites!

Yes, Racer is actually a girl, although most people think she is a rooster when they see her because of that big red comb. She gives us a lovely white egg nearly every day.
