    My name is Amy. I am 27 years old, and am venturing into the realm of raising chickens. My boyfriend Hunter and I bought our first house last summer and moved ourselves, 4 cats (we now have 5) and all of Hunter's Labrador Retrievers plus Riley (he's a golden retriever). Hunter is a dog breeder/trainer and you can find his dogs at www.TwilightRetrievers.com. We have roughly 8 acres, 2 of which are designated solely for the dogs. We also are planning on planting an orchard in the fall which will also take up between 1 and 2 acres. With Hunter's obsession with Labs and all things dog, I decided to find something constructive to do with my time. What I didn't realize was that chickens were soooo adictive!!

    We currently have the following breeds/colors: That I will be breeding and selling eggs/chicks in the spring...
    Silkies (Blue and Partridge)

    Bantam Cochins(Blue, Silver Laced, White, Black/Lavender Splits, Red Partridge, hopefully Blue Laced Reds)
    Lavender Orpingtons

    LF English Black Orpingtons
    Buff Orpingtons
    Seramas (chocolate based)
    Mille Fleur D'Uccles
