Howdy ya'all!! I am a recent resident of Lebanon, OR and I am in town raising 4 backyard cluckers whom I love and adore like insane amounts. One is a mixed Americana with Rhode Island Red and one is a Barred Rock and the two sex links, one red and one black. They rock!! I love them and they are laying 3 eggs a day. We built them a coop with recycled lumber from my neighbor who is a contractor and brings us scraps home. this was from last spring when we got our chicks! I am currently thinking of getting some quail too! I joined because I love my chickies and want to learn more and findout if I am the only one that has chickens that do the crazy wacko things they do... LOL Nice to meet you... Kaire mom of 3 kids, 4 cluckerhens, 2 dogs and 3 cats... wishing she had a small farm, but is making due in Downtown Lebanon!!
