Our little farm is still very young. My wife and I have three wonderful children - they truly bring us joy everyday and we are blessed beyond measure that the Lord would find us worthy to be their Mommy and Poppa.
In the backyard we keep a large garden to can and freeze for the winter. Our current flock consists of 22 Barred Rock Hens, two Rhode Island Red hens, two Barred Rock roos and a bantam Silver Duckwing Roo. The demand for our eggs has been such that I will most likely be adding 12 more hens this spring. I have not decided if I will go with day olds again or if I will let a couple of my girls be a mom. If anyone has had expeirence in adding to their existing flock both ways I would love to hear what you have to say about the good and the bad of it.
