I'm from and currently live in West-central Wisconsin.
I got my first chicken when I was about six years old. I caught her in a fishing net at an abandoned farm and she lived with my Irish Setter. I think she was a white leghorn.
I currently have a trio of LF Buff Brahmas and one Black Copper Marans.
We are in the process of moving to rural Montana. Once I turn one of the sheds on the property to a coop (maybe two) I'll get more chickens. I'm thinking Buckeyes, Chanteclers, Brahmas, Marans and maybe Campine. Who knows, maybe I'll just get a surprise assortment from a hatchery.
We also have three working/pet Siberian Huskies
