  1. Chicken Junkies
    Welcome to the page of a couple "Chicken Junkies" from the eastern panhandle of beautiful West Virginia. We started out with four tiny Old English bantams to help rid our 22 acres of ticks and other bugs. Our sweet little deaf Jack Russell Terrier had Lyme disease from the ticks.

    Several years later, we are the proud owners of several breeds from some good lines. We have ...

    Wheaten/Blue Wheaten Ameraucana
    BLRW from Foley Farms line
    BO from Clevenger/Coulter line
    Heritage RIR
    Quail Belgian d'Anvers
    NN/Turken in Bantam and Frizzle
    Olive Eggers and Easter Eggers
    Bantam Russian Orloff
    Wheaten Marans from Bev Davis
    Silkies in BBS and Paint from Bad Azz Silkie & Brody's Broodello, and Partridge from Hannah Misner lines
    Serama in Smooth, Frizzled and Silkied from Pixie Chicks, Castle Delight, Philidelphia Phlocks, Grady Taylor, Sunshine Seramas, etc.
    White Crested Polish in Black, Chocolate, Chocolate Cuckoo, Blue, Splash and Frizzled - Bantam and LF.
    Gold Laced Polish and a beautiful Tolbunt roo from Bare Necessities
    Bantam Cochins in several colors and Frizzles too. MF are my favorites. Blue & Black Mottled pens too.
    Bantam Barred Rock from Dick Horstman line
    11 Colors of Guinea Fowl
    India Blue Pea Fowl
    Chocolate and Blue Muscovy Ducks
    Coturnix Quail in several colors
    White Sebastopol Geese

    Should we be worried? Time for intervention yet? Our 3 stall horse barn and a garage have become home to these personality plus little guys. They love to roam about on our acreage and look for goodies. Our dogs... Jazzy, the deaf JRT, Bert, a Pembroke Corgi and Maisy, the alpha female Shi Poo love the poultry. Maisy likes to chase a bit, but so far, so good. Wish us luck.

    Oh, did I mention we have 5 incubators running most of the time? SIGH...
