My name is Roger and I am on the NY/Pa border. I got into chickens almost four years ago when I went to look at a truck on craigslist and ended up coming home with a beautiful white leghorn rooster. The truck was a POS, but when the person heard I have a phobia of snakes and was infested with them, he insisted I take a rooster home. After that I got two easter-egger hens to keep him company. I have to say that there is never a dull moment with them, and I'd be lost without them. I currently have an easter-egger hen that is all that remains of the original flock, an austrlorp hen, two brown leghorn hens that are my newest additions, and a black silkie rooster. The brown leghorns were rescued from an egg production factory. I look forward to sharing ideas and stories about them.
