We just moved up here from So. Cal for a much simplier life and started with chickens. We have Golden Laced Wyandottes, Dominiques and Buff Orp's. The ravens like the Dominiques so we've lost a few of them. I've never raised any farm animals and it has been decades since the hubby has. So to say the least I am a totally rookie in all of this. I'm looking forward to the experience with the chicks. So far it has been fun.
