    We have a mini farm in TN and just added a small flock of chickens. We have an adult white silkie roo, an adult barred rock hen and 4 silkie chicks in the brooder, 1 white, 1 black and 2 partridge. There are also 2 oriental shorthair cats, 2 dogs(poodle/chihuahua mix and chow/pit mix)1 mini rex rabbit and a small herd of flemish giant rabbits. I work with people with physical and intellectual disabilities and hope to work with my animals to possibly have some pet therapy chickens and rabbits in the future instead of the usual therapy animals. I already have gathered a lot of information from this site and thought it is about time to sign up :)

    It's a rather small company I work for and they really seem to like the idea, lets see how these little peeps turn out. I am sure at least one if not all will be sweet and calm enough to take it on visits with me. My little Rupert the roo is very sweet, he cuddles with my baby bunnies when they visit him, but he is just a bit too noisy and crows all day long starting at 5am, so he may not be the best candidate lol
