I am new and introducing myself. I have been raising chickens for a few years now. I took to it like a duck to water. At first I utilized the shotgun approach until I found a breed I adore. I breed light sussex and americaunas.the light sussex are my passion. Breeding to get the most beautiful, best laying dual purpose birds I can. I free range them, my americaunas, ( which I raise just for enjoyment factor) like a bunch of little dinosaurs running around, and my peafowl.
