    My name is Layla. I had a beautiful small flock many years ago. This year, my husband built me a fabulous chicken coop and last week I acquired 12 new babies!
    It is a mixed bunch. Black Australorp, Buff Orpington, Americanas, Mottled Houdans, Cuckoo Marans, Buttercup, and assorted Polishes.
    I am planning on doing some breeding hoping that one of my st. run Polishes is a rooster.

    Besides chickens, my dear husband and I have a 13 year old human boy and 4 yr old human girl. Oh and 3 German Shepherds, 1 border collie/pit bull, 4 cats and several HUGE gardens!

    I am passionate about horticulture/agriculture and sustainable organic farming!

    Looking forward to gaining knowledge through this site :)

    Hello and
    :welcome

    Sounds like you are going to fit right in here, what a big 'family' :p
    I've heard many stories about people getting all roosters in their straight runs. Good luck. :lol:
