i thought I'd write a little something here. I have 9 chickens: 1 Barred Rock, 2 Australorps, 2 Easter Eggers, 2 silkies (buff and black), 1 Wellsumer, and a Columbian Wyandotte rooster. I'll have to post pictures. My chickens are little pets, and I have no intention of eating them. I do eat their yummy eggs though. They eat weeds and bugs in the garden and if I never got any eggs I would still have them here. They add so much fun and life to my garden. I'll have to post pics soon.
