We have been visiting this web site for over a year for information since adding chickens to our "mini" farm. Hope to learn more from the forums. We have 8 black sexlink hens, 4 golden sexlink hens, 2 red sexlinks, 6 road island red hens, 2 domineckers (sp?) one hen and one rooster, 8 americanus (Easter Eggers) and two ducks that think they are chickens, three boykin spaniels, one indoor cat, and about seven plus or minus outside cats. And our newest addition, a "labkin", half boykin half lab, we affectionately tagged our chocolate possum occassionaly tries to play "tag" with the chickens and roosters, but backs off when they puff up at him and show him they are not going to run away.
