Backyard flock in central NJ


Mar 28, 2018
New Jersey (Mercer County)
Hello! I'm a longtime lurker who is finally joining because we're going to do our first hatch, instead of supplementing our flock with chicks. I'm pretty nervous, but really excited.

Right now, our flock includes: Black Australorp, White-crested Polish Tophat, Ameraucana, Jersey Brown, and Silver-Laced Wyandotte.

I'm most eager to add Cream Legbar and some Marans, and am also interested in Welsummer.

We built our own coop and run, which was a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to hatching and maybe even breeding some of our own. I think the genetics behind chickens is fascinating!
Hi! Very cool. Where are you in central New Jersey. We are from Monmouth county. If you are interested we have cream and lavender legbar pullets and marans chicks.

Hi! We're in northwest Mercer County. Howdy, neighbour! Right now I'm looking specifically for hatching eggs. If you happened to have some Cream Legbar eggs, that would be awesome!

Glad you're here !

A must have for your poultry is a FIRST AID KIT for any issues that would arise. (
It's definitely better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

Also, make sure your coop(s) have a proper amount of VENTILATION. ( Your chickens will absolutely thank you for it!

One last thing, if you're into gardening, feel free to join this years SEED SWAP (
G'Day from down under julskinka :frow Welcome!

Best wishes and good luck with the hatch! :fl
