    update JAN 2018 our 5 year old is the one who pushed us into the raising of backyard chickens...we are truly a better family for it.

    we currently have 17 chickens, 7 hatched in April 2017, 4 hatched in September 2017 and 6 in December 2017

    Although these pullets are being raised for eggs - we are currently researching best breed/place to buy broiler meat birds.

    Our first 7 are all laying beautifully...blue, white, cream and brown eggs. We just added Marans to the group and are excited to see the color of their eggs. Next up - and olive egger...whether we buy or breed!

    we are constantly looking for advice and soaking up what we can, like sponges.

    thanks to so many here for your patience, advice and for sharing your worlds, with us.
