Describe 'My adventures of becoming a back yard chicken mama' here.. Well last summer i met some new horse riding friends out by my parents house and since i was hanging out with them basicly all summer they had chickens. I"ve always loved chickens but never thought about getting any, since i've been a parrot and reptile kind of gal all my life.. But as i hung out there more and more i found 1 chicken that she had that i simply fell in love with.. so i saved up threw out the summer last year and started my little own hurd.. I have a few difficult times threw out my time and its almost will be a year in about 4 months since i started being a back yard chicken.. my difficults though is i have lost about 8 chickens saddly either from my cats and dog cause they were learning and now they have learned not to kill the feathury critters. or Coons as i was still learning about how to set there home up.. Or a simple mistake that i made that cost a life and so didnt mean to R.I.P Nutmeg i'm sorry mama forgot to put the coop lid down after chasing those ducks she sold... But i've had a very adventure year and have learned alot.. I am now a proude mama of 9 wonderfull hens and 2 wonderfull and sweet Roo's and now 3 new banti babies 1 silkie and the other two not sure but i'll figure out when they grow up. oh and i was a mama of 9 hen ducks and 3 drakes.. but i have slimmed down on them and now got 4 hen ducks and 1 drake left.. 4 beautiful Kayuga hens and 1 very naughty and obnoctiouse Khaki Campbell Drake.. i am a single gal so i take much pride in my animals as i own alot and every one has brought such joy and love in to my heart as i care and love for every one... I am trying to start to save up best i can so i can move out in to the country area a bit.. Cause i really want to get a bigger place then i have now for my lovelies and some day they will have it so now on to my pics of all my babies and some that are no longer around..
