Hi, as you can see I'm the "Langshanlover", my name is Honey by birth rights. I'm new to the forum, I'm not new to the site though, I've been using this site since last year when I ordered my Layers in the Fall. I live in east central Mississippi on approximately 10 acres of land, I've been married for 27yrs & have 2 boys, 1 is 26 & living on his own. (Thank God! ) My other son just Graduated this past May & I'm starting to feel old although still young at heart, but my body started declining before I had any say so! I'm currently disabled & find myself having good days & bad days, but really needed something to do with my time on those good days, I used to work everyday then all of the sudden that life was gone. We've had a small flock of bantams for about 13yrs or so & last Fall I decided to order some laying hens. I went online & ordered the Rainbow Layer collection from McMurray Hatchery & some Rouen Ducks (wanted something that wouldn't fly away). When the chicks arrived it was suppose to be 25 chicks +a free 1, I preceeded to count them when they arrived I was short 1 hen I know this cause when finished feathering out I had 24 hens & a roo, it's all good though.(even though my roo turned out to be mean to me, he just doesn't like me) My chicks were a nice variety although I had a couple die, 1 Lt Brahma, 1 Black Langshan, 1 Salmon Favorelle, 7 Barred & 7 White Rocks, 4 Brown Leg Horns, 1 Black Minorca, I also have about 50 OEGB's, 1 Dark Brahma Bantam Roo, 1 White Cochin Bantam sitting on 16 eggs, 1 pair of Quail Danver's, 5 Ameracauna Roo's, 2 Ameracauna hens, 2 Lt Brahma roo's, 4 more Lt Brahma hens2 Red/White Splash roo's & 12 more eggs pending. Then the other animals are 4 Dogs, 5 cats, 1 Rouen duck& 3 drakes, 1 Horse, 3 goats & 8rabbits, I think that's all, that's enough!!!!
