    Hi everyone, I'm new on here. Lance and I live on 47 acres in Blount County, Alabama. We don't have any children without fur or feathers. I'm a high school English teacher by trade. I have had chickens pretty much all my life. Daddy bought me and my sister pet roosters when I was about three. I currently have about twenty mixed breed chickens living free range. They won't go into a coop, but prefer to roost in trees. I also have an incubator full of eggs due in two weeks, and have ordered 30 rare breed chicks from Ideal. I found this sight looking at different breeds on the internet. I do art in my spare time. I can pretty much draw anything I see. Lance and I have three Bluetick Coonhounds and a Newfoundland mixed mutt. I also have four cats. We hunt, train, and show the hounds. Gus, my male bluetick is a show Champion. He was born and trained here. Well, that's me in a nutshell. I'm excited to be on here. I know I'll learn a bunch. Amy

    [​IMG] I have been looking for Black Giants or any variation of the Jersey Giants but haven't had any luck. I love my 2 black giant hens. They are so sweet. I would love to have a lot more Jersey giants but they are hard to find around here.
