My Name is Sarah and I Keep a flock of twelve barnyard mix hens and handsome white rooster. We also keep three geese, two Africans and one Pomeranian. our American buff passed away the day before yesterday :< I think I joined this site mostly because it would be nice to be able to gush to some other fowl enthusists now and again. Also if any one in my area would be interested in trading fertilized eggs it would make my life! I have a gene line of mixed heritage chickens I've been keeping for about five years now and they are white, gold and brown speckled easter layers. I would really like to introduce new blood and color variations! I like to take note of which traits are sex linked and such. I could look it all up I am sure but it's more fun this way. My current rooster is a mysterious white mixed breed that a family member caught because he had gone feral, I would like my next rooster to be an auracana I think. But that's a long way off. anyway, hello! I like to breed speckled chickens. Lets be friends?
