    Hello All!
    I am owner to approx 30 egg bearing ladies and one Blue Splash Rooster. I have been raising chickens for about 11 years. My flock is a mixture of Americana's, Barred Rocks, Blue Wyandotte, cuckoo Marans, Welsummers, a game hen and black Astralorpe. I just finished my first hatching! 9 eggs started and 8 hatched.
    Along with the chickens, I raise Dwarf Nigerian goats and a couple of pigs. Looking for a KuneKune or Guinea Hog gilt. When time allows I make soap with goats milk.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! That's a lovely flock you have there and with 11 years chicken keeping under your belt I'm sure your knowledge will really help lots of members here.

    Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    Welcome to BYC. I have never heard of those breeds of pigs - would love to see photos of them - once you find them.
