Hello!! It"s nice to have a place with like minded people who love chickens! I grew up with chickens, but just recently got back into them. I have 8 hens, 3 Buff Orpingtons, and five Mutts.. I think 3 of them are Golden Comets. I also have some Bantams.. a black Frizzle hen,A Buff Silkie,1 Americana,1 Cochin, and 3 Roosters...2 are Old English Bantams and one is some kind of weird game bird ...He is my favorite!! His name is King George and he's a RIOT..Friendly and calm. They are kept at my Mom's next door. I am looking to get some more hens in the spring at my place to raise for eggs and pets. People think that i am crazy, but i find them very relaxing and fun to take care of. I like to spoil my chickies...they make me HAPPY!
