Hello, I am a chicken addict. They say the first step is admitting you have a problem but I don't see a problem! My husband and I have a small flock of 12 birds, although that can change at the blink of an eye. One accidental stop at a flea market and we could have 32... We recently sold over 120 birds (all his) when we got married to move them to our new home and I find them much more enjoyable when there is a manageable number. I have been obsessed with chickens about 6 years now and love learning new things about them. I compete in occasional small local chicken shows. I love ornamental breeds, colorful egg layers, and bantams. We currently only have standard egg laying breeds including Ameraucana, Black Copper Marans, Olive Egger, Black Australorps, a Cucko Maran, a Production Red, a Buff Brahman, and a Silky Roo. The hubby doesn't like bantams due to small eggs or breeds with low production so right now I am just enjoying my colorful egg basket! I am looking forward to learning more!
