It says five years, but I have been away for about that same amount of time. I used to live on 14 acres and had around 100 chickens (Australorps and Jersey Giants). I unfortunately had to give that up when I moved. I currently live in WA and now have the opportunity to have chickens again. I have a flock of 7 pullets right now that have started laying their first eggs about 2 weeks ago. I have a Brahma, Marans cross, Leghorn, Legbar, Lakeshore Egger, Andalusian, and a questionable lavender pullet (we are thinking Orpington or Gemstone). It's good to be back. I remember when I used to be faithfully here there was a lot of help I received from many people!
