Raising a small flock of chickens up on the Blue Ridge in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, our 6-bird flock includes a black australorp (hen), a barred plymouth rock (hen), a dominique (hen), an easter egger (hen), a welsummer (hen) and a New Hampshire (cockerel).

For now, we're sticking with egg production and enjoying the company of our flock. Raising some chicks and meat birds may be something we'll try our hands at in the future.
