Hi,

 

Guess I should follow instructions & introduce myself first as a new member of your group.

 

We are just retired and have raised a small flock of meat birds for about 28 years.  I decided to join our poultry club about 17 years ago and have had some different laying breeds over the years:  Buff Brahma Bantams, New Hampshires, Brown Leghorn, Chanteclers, Ameracauna, Silver Pencilled Wyandottes, Partridge Cochins.  We only have about 7 birds right now and am hoping to get a few more.  We have a small acreage but also started a Lowline herd, have a few Quarter Horses, and raise Standard & Miniature Poodles. 

 

I'm looking forward to hearing about  your experiences with raising chickens and would like to have a few of the more endangered breeds to help keep them going.

Welcome to Backyard chickens.  Very nice to have your hear.  I used to breed and shows Cockers in the late 60's- '1980.  Boy AM I old.  If you want to check out what is happening around you - put your state name in the search box and it will pop up.

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
