    In the Spring of 2011 we moved 3,500 miles from Florida to Oregon, purchased and started a small farm. Then in May of that same year, we purchased a small flock of 6 Buff Orpingtons laying hens that were approximately 2 years old.

    Chickens: 27 total


    17 Orpingtons: Lav, Black Lav Split and Blue
    7 Red Old English Game Bantams
    3 Easter Eggers


    Ducks: 34 total ( 5 ducks and 29 ducklings)

    5 adult Welsh Harlequins
    26 Kaki Campbell ducklings
    3 White Layer ducklings


    I found out about BackYardChickens.com by searching for information online in the Spring of 2011. BYC has great information and has helped me learn so much. I finally became a member a few days ago after seeing information about the 4th Annual BYC New Year Day Hatch-along. What FUN!!!

    My husband and I care for our two young sons, my elderly Father; 24 Goats: 17 Dairy goats, 7 Meat goats; 2 House pets: 1 dog and 1 cat… No wonder I am exhausted all the time. Best dream ever-Don’t wake us up!


    Irony: About 4 months after becoming a poultry keeper I developed an egg sensitivity and can no longer eat eggs. L

    Very excited to be a member of BYC!!!

    That is ironic about the egg sensitivity. Sounds like some of my kind of luck.

    Yes, no go with the duck eggs too. Read that I might be able to tolerate either whites or yolks but not brave enough to try. Oh well, at least my family and our customers get to eat farm fresh eggs. I had forgotten how different they are from store bought eggs.

    Thanks to everyone for making me feel welcomed!
