    Hi! I have had chickens for only two years now, and have learned a ton as a new chicken mom :) I currently have a variety of breeds, mostly from good local breeders and a few I've hatched here at home. I currently have 14 adult hens, 2 juvenile pullets, 8 new chicks, and 2 lovely roosters! As for breeds...it's a bit of a list :)

    Lavender, black, and white Ameraucanas, Welsummers, Spangled Russian Orloff, Polish, Rhode Island Red, Silver-Laced Wyandotte, French Black Copper Marans, and new to the mix are several Swedish Flower Hens, Icelandics, and Salmon Faverolles! Almost ready to hatch some of my first Olive Eggers :)

    I've used BYC.com as a learning reference forever, simply found a lot of answers on there by googling questions!

    As my husband and I don't have kids yet, we have a bit of a menagerie of furry children :) 2 cats, 2 great danes, 6 nubian goats, one Friesian cross filly, and of course the chickens! We try to live a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. We are vegetarian, and mainly only consume our own dairy products and eggs. We grow as much food as we can in our garden, regardless of the short growing season :)


    I'm excited to talk to some fellow chicken-addicts!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Wow sounds like you must be very busy there with all your furry children!! I too have many of the same animals as you barring the goats which I would love but just don't have the space or I definatly would. I have mainly polish chickens and just love the breed I see you have them on your flock list :love

    Be sure to ask any questions you may have, everyone here to help and very friendly.
    Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our "flock"

    It sounds like you have a nice mix of chicken breeds, and animals! I don't keep goats or horses myself, but have had a chance to work with Nubian goats before and have quite enjoyed them.[​IMG]

    Good luck with all your animals!
