    I've been a lurker for quite some time, and decided it was finally time to make an account.
    I've loved chickens since I was a child, and was finally in a position to get some of my own last year.
    I have some lovely little Houdans that I have started breeding this year to hopefully bring to breed standard in a few years and start showing :).
    Here are a few pics of the Girls and boys. Please excuse the muddy feathers. It poured all day, and the girls insisted on playing in the mud puddles.

    Thank you.
    It took a while to find these guys. Apparently they are in short supply in my area so I had to take what I could get :).
    We have another 11 eggs in the incubator set to hatch next week.
