Hello all! Long time no talk! It's been a LONg time since I've checked in on this thread! Things have been really busy! For those that have been around here for a while, my Wee One is now 2 years old and doing well! My DH has FINALLY agreed to let me have some chickens, so my flock, which currently has 3 geese and 4 ducks, will soon be gaining some chickens! I'm thoroughly excited and have been doings lots of reading and have been asking LOTS of questions! Danz has been wonderful in answering many of my questions. Someone reminded me that a friend from church is also big into chickens and is considered by many to be THe local chicken expert (judges the area 4H shows and more). I had a chance to ask her some questions today, and she disagreed with a few things Danz told me. I trust both of these ladies and am a little confused now as to what to think... So, I'd like your opinions!
My question: Is it worth it to have a rooster or not? Those of you that have chickens - what breed do you have and is your rooster worth his weight?
Also, I wanted to share some good news, which can all be summed up in this picture, which shows me (on the left) and my riding buddy:
