    Hi, as you can see I'm the "Langshanlover", my name is Honey by birth rights. [​IMG] 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! [​IMG]) 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! [​IMG] 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!!!!
