Finally bit the bullet and signed up for an account. I have had chickens for years and years. I have been selling eggs via word of mouth, and then when I started incubating chicks, every batch is sold before they hatch. So I started myself a little business off of it. Little is the operative word. I have a lot of mutts and grey guineas because that is what I started with at the feedstore here. And then things just got crazy. I have buff orpingtons, barred rocks, coppermarans, and a Splash Silkie. I think I have 38 birds now in various stages. They all free range & get closed up at night tight. I have 11 coral blue guineas incubating that I am eagerly awaiting hatch next week. I WANT more buffs in different colors, some silkies, and some rare birds that most people don't have here in East Texas. I have suffered loss by snakes (chicks/eggs), hawk, dog and young coyotes. The coyote was the worst, during broad daylight, killed just to kill, wiped out half of what I own and I am slowly starting over. Besides chickens, I work as a freelance paralegal (which I am trying to eventually quit), and I volunteer 70+ hours a month. We also have (2) dogs, (4) cats, (3) horses, (1) donkey and (1) rabbit. Thank you for letting me drop in.
