Hello Everyone! My husband and I are excited to be new members of Backyard Chickens. We recently acquired 7 chickens - 2 Cuckoo Marans, 3 Americaunas and 2 red hens- not sure what kind. We are new at raising chickens and learning as we go so we are anxious to learn from you! We have an Aussie pup named Pippa Roo or Pip for short. We are training her to herd the chickens. It's a work in progress! We have 4 children and 6 grandchildren. We love to be outside in our little backyard farm!
