Hello! I am from central Illinois. I live out in the middle of nowhere with my husband. While I don't actually have any chickens of my own, I have helped my mother with hers. Duck and geese are more suitable for me. I have 4 Rouens, 6 black runners, 5 black cayugas, 4 chinese geese, and recently added 2 guineas. We also have 2 Norwegian Elkhounds. I really enjoy reading the posts on this forum. I've come across so many questions that I've had, but never asked or bothered to research. Keep up the good work!
