    I am a mother of three originally from NJ, was transplanted to Delaware for my 2 boys who have Autism, married a fifth generation farmer.
    Saved a chicken from a Perdue chicken truck that overturned in front of our House on the way to the processing plant two years ago, her name was Camellla. She lived in our home for 14 months, thats where it all began.

    We have 30 Chickens born on the 3rd of July 2010

    Salmon Faverolles (a hen and a roo)
    Partride Cochans (3 hens and a roo)
    4 Jersey Giants (hens)
    4 RIR's (hens)
    4 New Hampshire Reds (hens)
    4 Buff Orphingtons
    4 White rocks
