    Hi everyone,

    A good friend of mine who also raises chickens pointed me toward this site as a great resource.

    I had New Hampshire hens for years and absolutely loved them. Our last girl from that flock passed away earlier this year, and it took some time but I got my husband convinced to start a new flock.

    This time, I'm going for a mixed flock with emphasis on friendly, beautiful breeds that lay interesting eggs.

    Currently I have an Americauna cockerel, an americauna pullet, two barred rock pullets, a blue americauna pullet, a black copper marans pullet and two chocolate orpington pullets.

    I'd love to add a couple of cochins and possibly a welsummer to the flock as well.

    We are in the process of building a new coop and I hope to be able to cross my Americauna boy with the girls next spring to get new and interesting egg colors. So much to learn!

    I look forward to getting to know you all and to benefit from your wisdom!
