    New member of the forum here. I currently have 21 chickens (of all ages). Another 3 pullets coming early next week. Currently I have 2 production reds, 4 light Brahma, 2 buff Brahma, 2 black Australorp, 1 black sex link, 2 Easter eggers, 1 rainbow Dixie, 3 sapphire gems, and 4 Dominiques. The next three pullets are barnevelders. I've been raising them for 2 years and enjoying it a lot! I also have three large dogs. I look forward to interacting with everyone here! I'll upload more pictures at some point

    I don't let the chickens roam the whole yard. I have a large fenced in run for them. If the dogs are out I will let them in when I tend to the chickens and they're fine but last summer our hound saw an escaped pullet and grabbed it. I want to integrate them more so that's why I let them in with me. Hopefully one day I'll be able to let them all just roam!
