    Hi, we are a small hobby farm located in Bogalusa, LA. Currently living on a 1 acre plot, we are cramped for space but we offer a wide variety of breeds. We focus on large fowl chickens with plans to raise a barnyard mix silkie flock just for fun as well as an Ayam Cemani flock so we can feel rich. :p

    Our currently available breeds are: Buff Orpington, Delaware, Cuckoo Maran, Easter Egger, and Brown Leghorn. We have a trio of Silver Laced Wyandottes that we hope to expand in 2015. Also, we plan to experiment with breeding our own Red Sex Links and Black Sex Links to sell.

    I am literally obsessed with rare and unique breeds much to everyone else's dismay (since the crowing becomes excessive after a bit). I am constantly finding new breeds that I want to try or seeing hybrids that I want to make for myself. The possibilities are endless and no matter what there will never be enough room to do all the things I want to do. But with luck and a bit of investing, we will build ourselves a successful homestead where we can live happily with our birds, bunnies, and other animals!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. You have some wonderful breeds. I've had Black and Red Sex Links for years, and have bred some of my own. It is a fascinating endeavor. What parent breeds do you plan on crossing for your Black and Red Sex Links? Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
