    Hello there!

    I just started on my poultry adventure this month. I started with six chickens...and then six ducks...and now four more chickens.

    Here are the girls I have:

    2x Barred Rock
    2x Ameraucana (1 blue wheaten and 1 brown red)
    2x Buff Orpington
    1 White Leghorn
    1 Rhode Island Red
    1 Welsummer
    1 Black Australorp

    3 Golden 300
    2 White Layer
    1 Khaki Campbell

    I have two coops, one pre-made and one I built myself. The girls share a large fenced run.

    I'm looking forward to learning a lot here! :D

    Thank you! I wanted to try a lot of breeds to learn temperaments, how they deal with our climate, etc. They seem to be having a great time - I love watching them goof around out there! :)
