Hi! I finally joined BYC - decided since I was on here all the time, I might as well get in on the fun! I am the proud mama of 2 teenage sons, 1 miniature schnauzer (he likes chickens), 1 cat, 19 chickens (11 girls, 8 roos), oh, and one husband! we have 1 buff orp, 2 jap bantams (roos), 2 frizzle cochins (bantams), 2 red breasted old english bantams, 2 silkies, 4 rhode island reds, 3 silver laced wyandotts, 1 silcilian buttercup, 2 white leghorns. someone laid our first egg yesterday - a sweet little brown.
