    I've always loved chickens. My folks grew up on farms during the depression and do not understand "pet" chickens, but I know you all do!
    My current flock is eight hens, no roos allowed in my Minneapolis suburb. I am currently raising three buff orphingtons (Dixie, Dixie B and Sunny), a silver laced wyandotte named Dottie, three black silkies (Sweetie, Jackie and Penny) and an Easter Egger named Bunny.

    They live in our backyard coop with supervised free range every afternoon.

    We button up the run with 3 ml plastic for the winter (November - early April)
