    We are very new to owning chickens and ducks and have been enjoying this adventure very much. We have 9 children that are also very much enjoying them also. :)

    Here is some of our first chickens we purchased from TSC in a bin marked pullets

    I have really fell in love with the cochin bantams and am looking into purchasing full size Cochins.

    We traded some of our chickens for our lavender Orpington Big Momma

    We love Big Momma, she loves to talk about everything and she lays us an egg every day.

    We also purchased ducklings and boy did they grow super fast

    So far we have really enjoyed our chickens and ducks!!!
    We currently have 21 chickens and 4 ducks.

    Updated and some new members to our flock.

    I absolutely fell in love with my bantam cochins so we purchased a LF cochin pair.

    We are having so much fun caring for our chickens our LGD great Pyrenees has decided she prefers to guard the chicken not the goats. She leaves the goat guarding for our other Great Pyrenees.

    Bailey the LGD who loves the goats but does guard the chickens too.
