We have been buying baby chickens here for about 4 years and raising them. Almost all of them are called double breasted chickens, That is the translated name from Spanish to English. I really don´t know what the real name is in English. Mostly we buy them and when they are about 5 weeks old, we give them to the poorer people that live near us. It´s a lot of fun. At this current time we have 2 egg laying hens, I don´t know what kind they are, but they are kinda brown and gold colored. Real fat. I like em. I found this site because, I don´t remember how, but I visited www.loudenfarms.com and liked what I saw and sent an email and Jen Louden sent me back an email. So I went back to their site and saw this link and decided to join in hopes that I would be able to communicate with Jen or her husband. Although I am investigating how to make stained glass windows right now, the only other hobby I have at this time is cooking. I was a cook in the U.S. Air Force and have loved to cook ever since. I am not always able to do it, but I try to cook a big meal twice a week and let the people eat here for free. It is a LOT of fun. I am origionaly from Maine and have 2 daughters and 2 sons that still live there along with 4 grand daughters and one grand son. My current wife, from Tuxpan, Veracruz, Mexico and I live here in Northern, Mexico in the state of Tamualipas in our house alone. We have a small 4 bedroom home with about 30 acres in a small Mexican type ranch. We have Guinea hens, parakeets, a bob cat, a horse, a couple dogs, who knows how many cats (lol), 3 HONERY geese ( even I´m scared of em), a few goats, a few cows and that´s about it. I don´t work because I am 100% disabled from the U.S. A.F. and have been for about 18 years now. I want to start raising pheasants and hatching eggs, which is how I found www.loudenfarms.com through google in the first place. I guess that is about it.
