My name is Amanda & I've come here for answers to my questions for the past few years and finally decided to get my own account. I'm in Cedar Creek TX, just outside of Austin and I've been in the chicken game for a good 7 or 8 years now. I harvest my birds with the exception of a few that have won my heart over the years...although I'm sure their time will come some day as well. I just started incubating 2 days ago since my current flock doesn't seem to want to lay for me and the freezers got a bit too much space in it. I've got a million questions so I'm anxious to meet you guys and pick your collective brain! My flock is made up of one big bad roo, Cleatus, a brown leghorn; Nugget, a black Australorp that was the sole survivor out of a clutch of 18 that a dog got a hold of, 1 Easter egger, 2 b-rocks, 2 other Australorps, and a couple I'm not sure of... Another reason I stalk you guys!
