My name is Karen and I have had 5 chickens about 9 months and they are layers, I get one egg a day from them. I just bought 50 chicks and 4 ducks and have had them 2 weeks going on three. I have lost 2 chicks.think it was stress. So I just wanted to join for help,info and just people who know chickens and possibly ducks. We also have 2 dogs,4 cats,2 rabbits,a horse,donkey and 5 sheep and 3 lambs. This is my micro farm. I live in Texas and the weather here is (as my daughter says )bipolar. Lol. Thanks for allowing me to join.
