    Now as far as chickens go I have 4 Welsummers, 6 Speckled Sussex, 5 Buff Orpingtons, 4 Black Jersey Giants, 5 Ameracauna, 2 Golden Laced Polish, 2 White Crested Blue Polish, 2 Buff Laced Polish, 2 Silver Laced Polish, 3 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, and 2 Barred Rocks.

    Hello I just joined the forum. I have looked around the website a few time's and am interested in a lot of topics. Me and my wife have had chicken's a couple of month's. I have already learned a lot. I am a retired electrician that's why my member name is spark . I did not know how much I would enjoy having chicken's. We also have 5 dogs who live in and out.3 cat's. 1 cockatoo that is a handful and loud sometimes. He also talks a lot. 2 small birds and a rat. We have 9 hens and 2 roosters. They are just starting to lay. We are getting about 5 eggs a day right now. I never realized how amusing and comical they can be at times. I am going to enjoy reading this forum. Thanks spark.
