I was raised around my grandparents' farm in Crescent City, CA. I can remember collecting eggs, milking cows and holding the baby chicks.
Flash forward to my 20's I got married and rescued a unwanted Easter chick. Which of course grew up as a Rooster. I thought he was an Aracauna ( looking back prob a Ameracauna or mix ) ? So I bought 3 female Aracauna chicks ( mislabeled ... really either Ameracauna or Easter Eggers ). I loved my Chickens. All were very tame and laid greenish eggs. The Rooster got rehomed once he started attacking my old Sheltie.
Currently I've moved onto 2.5 acres. I'm living in an old farmhouse/bungalow. I'm trying to work out a way to build a coop and a henyard or chicken tractor. I only want 3-4 hens. Just enough for eggs for 3 people.
First I have to finish fencing the dog area. I compete with my two Whippets. I've had Whippets since 1988. I've also had my Sheltie and a Borzoi plus I fostered various Sighthounds over the years.
I've been an educational Falconer , here is an old pic
I have a flight cage with a couple of Parakeet males.
My other hobby is planted aquariums.
