While I've had an account here for almost a year I never found much time to become active, But I'm changing my ways! So I guess a little about me! I'm a ranch wife in the middle of the Nebraska Sandhills. What started with five hens to keep our small family in eggs quickly turned into a flock of 30! I started with five barred rock hens, then added some americanas, some buffs, some reds, and just about whatever the feed store couldn't sell. My first spring was for sure a learning lesson!
Now my interests have turned to Lavender Orphingtons and Blue Laced Red Wyandottes. I'm on a quest to learn more, to understand the basics of their genetics and to eventually produce some awesome looking birds!
My first Lavs are joining the flock this spring, 2013, and hopefully my BLRW will be soon to follow!
I'm excited to learn what I can from everybody on the forum! I've already found it very handy and I can hardly wait to see what it has in store for me!

My daughter has a buff hen that has "adopted" her. As soon as I let her out of the coop in the morning she runs across the ranch yard to the front door to wait for little miss to leave to go to school. She even trys to sneek into the pickup to go to school with her, she usually gets caught but the last time I took our suv to town I found a big yellow hen napping in the back. Little miss has also snuck her into the house a couple of times. It's funny because I wasn't a fan of the buffs at first, but they have quickly grown on me and now I see why they are so common because they are just great birds!
