    Hello all,

    I am new to owning and raising chickens, but having a great time. Our starter birds include black copper marans, buttercups, silver campine, bovan/RIR hybrids, with an assortment of young chicks including polish, buff orpingtons, cochins, australops, golden lakevelders, bantam silkies, frizzle cochins, and brahmas, with some yet to be identified. We also have several ducks including anconas, blue and black swedish, rouen, pekin, and khaki campbell, some of which are crested. We are experimenting now to decide which types we want to focus on raising, especially in our extreme heat and cold environment.
