Hi! I'm Judi, 70 yr old "mother" of 43 hens and 2 roosters....Easter Eggers, Olive Eggers, Ameraucanas, Cochins, Silkies, Buff Orpingtons, Polish, Silverlaced Wyandottes, Wellsummers, Rhode Island Amber, Black Copper Marans and probably others I can't think of. Brandy (3/4 Anatolian Shepherd 1/4 Great Pyrenees) is my dedicated chicken guard dog. Samson (German Shepherd) was the dedicated chicken-eater till the E-collar taught him better. Two cats and a husband round out the family. I love to garden and meet challenges of landscaping around chickens. First chickens ever....5 years ago....still on the learning curve!
